Comparing costs for cosmetic treatments can be complicated. This is true whether you’re considering plastic surgery or injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic. At our Dallas dermatology practice, we provide detailed, transparent procedure costs at consultations to ensure there are no surprises.
When patients comparison-shop, however, it’s hard to know if they’re comparing apples-to-apples for treatments such as BOTOX. That’s because different practices may use various ways to charge for BOTOX. Common methods used for pricing include charging by the size of the area treated, by the unit, or by the total amount of the product used during treatment.
What does BOTOX cost?
BOTOX and Dysport® treatment prices for our Dallas, Plano, and Frisco patients depend on a variety of factors, including the targeted areas, the number of areas being treated, and individual needs. Your total costs will also depend if you pair BOTOX with other treatments such as dermal fillers as part of a liquid facelift.
Charging by the Area
BOTOX can be used to treat issues in several different areas of the face, including to improve a gummy smile. We believe charging by the treatment area is the best option for patients. Two reasons why that is so:
- The dermatologist focuses specifically on the cosmetic outcome the patient desires—without worrying about the number of units needed to produce those results.
- It allows injectors to tailor their approach for the specific needs of each patient and create distinct results.
Pricing for BOTOX can also be influenced by the number of treatments a patient wants. Those who want to maintain their results indefinitely may want to pay for multiple treatments at once, which often leads to a lower cost per treatment. BOTOX results usually last about 4 months.
You can learn more about BOTOX treatments on the American Academy of Dermatology website.
The Brilliant Distinctions® loyalty program is a great way for repeat patients to earn rewards that can then be redeemed for future services using Allergan® products such as BOTOX. We participate in this program. While it may seem advantageous to search for a good deal on your treatment, your results and safety depend on the training and experience of your injector.
What do I need to know before getting BOTOX?
Even though the price is a factor, it is also important for patients to consider who performs their BOTOX injections—not every practitioner has the same experience or skill. The injector’s level of expertise will not only play a role in the pricing but also in the quality of the results. You should keep in mind the old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is” when assessing the prices being charged for BOTOX injections.

Because most patients get multiple BOTOX treatments, it’s important to find a practice where you’ll feel comfortable and have providers who take the time to develop customized treatment plans, based on your cosmetic goals.
