Thinking about Botox? How many units of Botox will you need and what is the cost?

How many units of Botox will you need and what is the cost?
Many providers sell Botox by the unit. Most new Botox consumers do not understand what this means. We are going to explain, to help you determine the average cost of Botox per area. First, you must determine what constitutes a unit in the practice you are receiving Botox from. At Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa the physician dilutes the Botox by a 1:1 ratio. Therefore, delivering the strongest Botox to patients.

Next the provider must assess the area of concern and determine how many units will be needed to give the desired effect. The following is the ranges of Botox per unit Suddenly Slimmer physician and nurses use per area.

In the glabella, which is the area between the eyes usually in women takes between 16-28 units and in males takes between 18-30 units
For correction of crows feet bilaterally 18-24 units,
Horizontal forehead lines 8-16units,
Bunny lines on the nose 4-6units.
Upper vertical lip lines 4-8units are needed,
For a gummy smile bilaterally 2-4units,
Marionette lines bilaterally 2-8units, and for chin dimpling 4-8 units.
Please keep in mind that the above are average units used, patient may need more or less then the average listed depending on their muscle strength.

Now to calculate how much Botox will cost you, first select the area of concern. Take the number of units and multiple by the cost per unit to determine total cost. Most providers charge between $12-20 per unit of Botox with the average being $16 per unit. We hope this helps consumers like you to determine the cost of Botox for you, so you can budget appropriately prior to seeing your provider.
