Botox Cosmetic is a long-standing institution in the dermatology world. It’s helped millions to look their best and fight off the signs of premature aging without the need for costly, extensive surgery. If you’ve been considering Botox to help you reach your aesthetic goals, trying to figure out the total bill may be a daunting task. But with a little more information, you’ll be able to get a better idea of what to expect financially.
Botox is a neurotoxin, which works by freezing the nerve impulses that cause the facial muscles to move. When injected into strategic places, you can prevent the wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions. Botox can also be used preventatively for a number of symptoms upon a doctor’s recommendation.
How Much Do Sessions Cost?
The cost of treatment varies from person to person and can depend on several factors. When you look at the bill, expect the following factors to be at play:
Size of Treatment Area
Number of Injections
Location of Area
Strength of Treatment Area
Severity of Concern
The average cost of Botox is $550, but costs vary largely depending on your goals. One distinct advantage of Botox over surgery is the lack of downtime and recovery period – you’ll be free to return to work right away. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, you can expect great treatments delivered by skilled dermatologists. We want you to love your results.
No matter what your goal is, it’s important to get the best treatment possible – this will ensure that you get your money’s worth.
One question that we hear a lot is whether or not Botox injections are permanent. If repeated treatments are necessary, they will add to the cost of the procedure. Thankfully, the nature of neurotoxins dictates that once the nerve is relaxed, you are good to go until the injections wear off. Typically, the effects of Botox can be seen right away and will last for several months after treatment. When the effects gradually wear off, you can return for touch-up treatments for upkeep.

“”I highly recommend Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi and Capital Laser & Skin Care. I have had multiple services performed by Dr. Tanzi and her staff, and couldn’t be more pleased with the results and overall care. Over the years I’ve had botox on my forehead, laser hair removal on my legs, under arms and bikini line, and brown spot removal on my face. Most recently I had Coolsculpting on my chin (or double chin, that is) and belly. Dr. Tanzi made recommendations based on my unique characteristics, set clear expectations for results, and never pushed services that I didn’t need or that wouldn’t work on me. Her honest and natural approach in this field is truly unique and appreciated. The results met or exceeded expectations every time – I’m thrilled with the end results. I never thought anything could get rid of my double chin, but after two treatments with mini Coolsculpting it is finally gone. And all of the staff in the office are professional and very caring, ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible during your procedures. The office feels more like a spa that a doctor’s office, which helps tremendously (there are TV’s in the rooms for Coolsculpting, which made the time fly, thank goodness). I get complimented quite often that I don’t look like I’m in my late 40s, and I attribute that to the excellent work of Dr. Tanzi.””
