What is the cost of Botox near me? When many people pose this question, they assume that Botox is the only neurotoxin out there.
But in reality, Botox is a just brand name for botulinum toxin type A, and other neurotoxins exist, including Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.
As such, in order to determine the cost of treatment, you have to look at the type of neurotoxin, average cost per unit, and the number of units being administered.
Continue reading for a cost comparison between neurotoxins and learn why one neurotoxin may be priced higher or lower than another.
Because most neurotoxins are priced per unit, it is important to be aware of the average cost of Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin per unit.
The number of recommended units can vary from patient to patient and depends on each individual’s needs, goals, and facial anatomy.
Looking at the average cost of neurotoxins per unit, you may be wondering why there is a notable difference between Botox and Dysport.
Dysport’s formulation is much more diluted than that of Botox. As a result, patients need about 3 times as many units of Dysport to achieve the same results as Botox.
For example, if a patient is treating horizontal forehead lines, he will need approximately 20 units of Botox or 60 units of Dysport.
Based on these numbers and average cost per unit, Botox and Dysport would end up being similarly priced per treatment.
That being said, patients should always ask for a detailed account, of the number of units that they will need and the price per unit, to make a well-informed decision about treatment.
