How much do Botox injections cost?

Arthur W. Perry, MD
Plastic Surgery
Nationally, Botox averages $380 per injection per area. Larger areas such as the forehead cost more than smaller areas such as the crow's-feet. Typical fees in the northeastern United States are $500 for the crow's-feet, glabella (wrinkles between the eyebrows), or forehead; $400 for the bunny lines; and more than $1,000 for the neck. Remember that your surgeon is an artist. You can have a picture painted by an amateur or by a professional. In the end, you have two very different pictures. You get what you pay for.

Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) injections cost an average of $350 to $500 per area of treatment, and costs vary across the country based on a number of factors. Some aesthetic specialty doctors charge by the unit of product. This allows them to charge more or less depending upon the specific person's need. Be sure to ask your doctor about the estimated total cost before beginning your treatment. Insurance rarely, if ever, covers the cost of cosmetic treatments such as Botox.
