Most Botox surgeons charge a flat cost per body area to be injected, though some break it down by units used per treatment. Rates typically range between $270 and $500 depending on the surgeon and the size of the area.
Most physicians pay the same rate for the Botox itself (around $400 for 100 units).
When Botox is injected to treat migraines or excessive sweating, most health insurance plans will cover Botox. Unfortunately, when used for cosmetic reasons alone, Botox is usually not covered by insurance.
Some clinics accept financing through established lending institutions such as CreditCare, or offer their own financing plans.
Botox injections are typically less expensive in Latin America, South America, India, or Thailand. Language barriers and varying health care standards are important to keep in mind when seeking medical treatment in a foreign country, so prospective patients should be careful to thoroughly research any Botox clinics they’re considering.
It’s also important for patients to make sure that their health insurance covers them for travel, in case of complications.
Botox injections are generally safe, but like any medical procedure, they have risks. Some patients experience allergic reactions to the botulinum toxin in Botox, and patients with asthma or emphysema can develop respiratory problems. As with any injections, infection is always a risk. These risks are magnified when Botox is injected in an unprofessional setting, such as at a "Botox party," or in an unregulated foreign clinic.
With Botox's generally low cost and variety of financing options, these risks seem high just to save a little cash.
If you want to look younger, especially around your eyes and mouth, Botox injections will give you the most immediate and satisfying results. The treatments are, however, somewhat complicated, and should be administered only by a professional.
If you want to look younger, especially in the areas around your eyes and your mouth, Botox is your best bet for immediate and satisfying results.
For maximum effectiveness, small injections of Botox are inserted in targeted areas on the face. The most common position is in the corners of the eyes where crow’s feet and wrinkles are a dead give away of a person’ age.
Botox is your best weapon against wrinkles and crow's feet. Botox injections, when properly targeted, can eliminate wrinkles in a matter of minutes.
A professional Botox therapist will place small injections at key spots to paralyze the skin, rendering it incapable of folding or wrinkling, thus smoothing out the surface and giving the eyes -- and thus the whole face -- a more youthful appearance.
Although the results are not permanent, when the injections have been precisely administered, the positive effect should last 6-8 months (although it may be as short as 3-6 months.)
Within 2-5 days of the initial injection, existing fine lines and wrinkles should disappear, or improve markedly, although in many cases the crow’s feet are virtually eliminated in a matter of minutes.
While the face is the most common area for the use of Botox injections, it’s also important to remember that the treatment is only “skin deep.” Botox can be used to smooth wrinkles anywhere on the body.
After the face (forehead and the region around the eyes), the next most popular regions for Botox therapy are the arms and on the neck, especially to address the wrinkling under the chin that causes an overall “sagging” of the features.
Because of the localization of the toxin, you'll also notice that only the area right around the injection will be affected, lessening any negative effects on any other part of your body.

For those who desire a wrinkle-free face but aren't fans of needles or botulinum toxin, there are a few alternatives to Botox.
Laser resurfacing, and Retinol or Retin-A, can dramatically improve your skin's texture and appearance, but won't target deep wrinkles the way Botox does.
Although slightly more expensive than Botox, these products are designed to last up to a year rather than 4-6 months.
