Question: How much does Botox cost?

Hello,

I have been reading information on Botox. I am confused about the cost, some clinics mention different prices per area but I am confused about what an area is? Why do Botox prices vary and can you explain what the different areas are??

Answer: The typical areas for "botox" injections are between the eyebrows, the forehead and beside each eye.
Each of these are considered an area - to have combinations of these locations injected would be charged as an "area".

Fees vary around the country depending on what is actually used - Botox is a particular product name for a prescription-only botulinum toxin.
There are other types of botulinum made by other pharmaceutical companies.
There is the cost of the product to consider and how much or how many units are needed for your individual need
The amount of product needed will vary from person to person due to muscle mass - i.e men typically need more units injecting.
Business costs and overheads will vary around the UK - this will influence charges
Finally you are paying a fee which reflects the qualifications, training and experience of the practitioner which should always be a medically trained and qualified Nurse Prescriber, Doctor or Dentist

Answer: Hi Josie, great question. Typically the three areas refer to the upper face: forehead, lines between the eye brows and the smile lines at the side of the eyes so hence each one of those is classed as one area. Prices can vary depending upon experience of e practitioner and the experience you get at the clinic.

At Finesse Skin Clinic we would always recommend a face to face consultation to discuss your requirements. This is beneficial and will enable you to see the clinic and it’s clean professional treatment environment and of course to meet your practitioner.

How does this sound to you?

Answer: Hi the price of Botox vary because of the product used ( there are different brands that cost different) and the experience of the practioner. The are also counterfeit Botox so I would recommend you only go to a medical professional that uses UK pharmacies to purchase their products. In regards to the areas they generally are frown area, forehead and around the eyes( crows feet). The ideal is to have the 3 areas because the muscles all work together. However some people don't want that and that is why you often see the price for 3 areas seperate. You can have the frown area and the crows feet area treated on its own but you can't have the forehead without treating the frown. It all has to do with anatomy and the harmony of the muscles. I hope that helps. Kind regards Dr Raquel

Answer: Hi, different clinics have different ways to price Botulinum (Btx) treatment, some charge by the area - for example, the frown region, or forehead, or around eyes, whilst some may charge by the amount of Btx used (by the unit). Prices will vary according to the clinics pricing policy, overheads, time taken to consult and provide treatment etc (much like any business has their own pricing structure and different businesses charge different amounts). For us, we do an hours consultation looking at your treatment goals, skin issues, medical issues etc giving a full assessment before we prescribe individually for your treatment, following a treatment plan, therefore giving you a full professional service. I hope this helps to answer your questions.
Kind regards

Answer: Josie Hi,

Thank you for your enquiry. The common areas for Botox are Forehead, Eyes and Frown. It is generally common that the more areas you have treated, so the price per area reduces. Each Patient has to use one one vile of Product, and therefore any unused product from one area of treatment goes unused. That is why one area is more expensive proportionately than having 3 areas.

There are also different products that can be used, we only use Botox in our clinic.

I hope this explains your questions.....Outline Clinic

Mr Nishant Agarwal

Smooth and Simple

Answer: Hi josie,

So the areas for botox are: outsides of the eyes (both), in between eye brows above the bridge of the nose, and across the forehead. You'll see prices most commonly based on those areas.

Some practitioners also do advanced areas like under eyes, corners of the mouth, chin, Jawline and neck. These are usually names rather than bracketed I to the areas mentioned above.

The price you pay is a combination or product, who is doing it, their experience, and also location. So thats why you'll see variances

As a rule of thumb, if its towards the top end, then expect a very experience practitioner who has done hundreds bot thousands of these Injections

Does that clear it up a bit more for you?

Thank you Mr Nishant. Yes, this does clear it up a little bit more for me. I definitely understand now that cheap Botox is a big no-no and the experience of the practitioner is key. Your expertise are much appreciated.

Answer: Hello Josie,

Botox treatments are normally based per area in the upper face. One are would be your frown lines, second area the lines across the forehead and the third area would be the lines at the side of the eyes (crows feet). These are typically the “Three areas” you may chose or less.

One area is £150, two areas £200 and three areas £250.

It would be best to book a consultation to discuss in more detail.

Answer: Hello,

Thank you for your enquiry. Botox treatment is usually costed per area, and typical areas treated are listed below.

Forehead lines
Frown lines
Crows feet lines
Top lip (smoker's) lines
Gummy smile reduction
Bunny lines (diagonal lines along side of nose)
Pebbly chin
Downturned mouth corners reduction
Neck bands reduction

I charge £150 for the first area, and £50 for each additional area treated at the same appointment. This is because botox comes in freeze dried vials, and has to be reconstituted for use. Each vial typically covers 3 areas. Other treatments, such as to reduce jaw clenching, migraines, or excessive sweating, cost a little more, as they require more product to be used.

I hope this has been helpful. If you would like to book a consultation, please let me know. I work from clinic locations in Wigmore, Sheerness and Rochester in Kent.

Kind regards,

Tawa Dowling, RN, NIP

Dr Robert Greig

B at Castle Quay

Answer: It’s confusing because of the Law. Websites are not allowed to specifically reference Botox or Wrinkle Relaxing injections. So can’t really say how much it costs.

I don’t charge by the area because it’s not fair on the client and can be set up in such a way as to encourage the client to have more- which is against GMC law.

My practice: I can say how much hyperhidrosis costs to treat. Then for facial Botox my fees start at £175 and the more you want the more it costs (ever so slightly discouraging you, which is how it should be).

My average cost is £225, which includes any review appointment.

Answer: Thank you for contacting SKIN2. Our charges for Botox are: £295 for three areas, £250 for two areas and £200 for one area. The areas most commonly treated are: the frown lines, the lines on the forehead and the smile lines around the eyes, i.e. that counts for three areas. You could choose to have any of these areas done on their own as one area, however, this does not always have good results. Products, clinics and operators charge different prices. We have a safe clinical environment and we use the best available techniques and produts. I would like to invite you for a free 15min consultation should you like to discuss this in more detail. Best wishes, Henriette Williams

Dr Mark Lister

Face Clinic London

14th May 2021

Answer: Dear Josie

Thank you for your questions. Many clinics, including Face Clinic London, price Botox treatment, following a consultation, according to how many areas are treated. Different muscle groups count as different areas. For example the forehead muscle which lift your eyebrows up counts as one area, whereas your frown muscles which pull your eyebrows down count as another. The muscles around your eyes which give you laughter lines would be another, for example. I would recommend a consultation to see if Botox is an appropriate treatment for you, and if so, then to explain the effects of treating the various areas and how it may work for you individually.

Best wishes

Dr Mark Lister

Dr Prerna Mittal

Hunar Clinic

Answer: Dear Josie,

Thank you for your question.

Areas of treatment for anti wrinkle are divided into three areas on upper face they are:
Area1 - Frown lines or Glabellar, area between your eyebrows, which gives angry expression. Botulinum Toxin Type A (BOTOX) is injected in the muscle to soften this frown.
Area 2: The horizontal frown lines in the forehead. When we raise our eyebrows, in a surprised expression, these are the lines that can be reduced by Botox. Injections are placed in the frontalis muscle in the middle section of the forehead.
Area 3: Crows feet to the sides of your eyes. Sometimes called laughter lines. Botox injected here can dramatically reduce your crows feet.

These three areas in your upper face can be injected with Botox to freshen up your look by relaxing muscles responsible for these expression lines. Botox is a trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, here in Hunar Clinic we use BOCOUTURE and BOTOX which is similar product but different trade names. This comes in small vial of dose of 50 units or 100 units. Mostly for 3 areas 50 unit dose is enough.

Prices are guided by no. of areas. Standard price for three areas is £300 which involves two weeks follow up and even touch up if needed.
Two areas - £260, One area £210.
These prices varies from clinic to clinic depending on the experience of injector, qualification, doctor led clinics might seem pricy but much safer. You should always do your research into clinic before you go for treatment, lot of good clinics offer free consultation, book your consultation then decide. Non medical injectors are cheaper but I would not be confident going to them.
Here, in Hunar clinic we offer free consultation and you can discuss any questions you have with our experienced doctor before you decide on the treatment. Please do not hesitate to contact for more questions.

Best Wishes

Answer: Dear Josie

Thank you for your question.
As with all medical aesthetics products and treatments, prices vary from clinic to clinic and they depend on the practitioner’s qualifications and experience and expertise (doctor/ nurse/ unfortunately in the UK even beauticians are offering Botox)
Botox is being charged “per area”
In general the areas of Botox treatment are the forehead, the frowns and the lines on the sides of the eyes (crows feet)
Hence, one area can be the forehead only, two areas forehead and frowns, etc....
As I have mentioned prices vary, but usually one area starts at around the £100-£150 margin and 3 areas can cost up to £350. Please note that the most important thing is not to check just for cheap deals, but also to enquire on the qualifications of the person offering the procedure
