According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2018 botulinum toxin injections were up 3% when compared to 2017, reaching over 7.4 million injections. Botulinum toxin is the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatment and is only expected to rise in popularity in the years to come. Botox Cosmetic is the most popular brand of all botulinum toxins and was FDA approved in 2002 to treat moderate to severe frown lines in adults. Botox was once a treatment very few were willing to discuss but today, it’s openly discussed on television, social media and during conversations with family and friends.
So how much does Botox cost in Draper, Utah? The average cost is typically between $9 and $14 per unit. The cost of Botox is determined by many factors, such as experience and credentials of the injector, their overhead fees, specials they may be offering, whether they charge by area or unit, etc. At Utah Facial Plastics, Botox is $12 per unit before any discounts with specials or Brilliant Distinctions points.
Botox is a medical procedure and should only be administered by a well-educated, licensed medical provider with years of experience. It’s important not to choose an injector based on price alone. While providers with specific cosmetic training and experience with Botox are best to see, anyone with a medical license can legally offer it. And with Botox being the most popular cosmetic treatment today, it’s no wonder providers of all backgrounds are looking to make it part of their businesses. One outlet many companies use to attract patients is Groupon, where buyers can purchase a variety of services at discounted rates. The businesses who offer discounts through Groupon are typically those more willing to accept lower payments for a variety of reasons. Some such companies are not properly licensed or could be purchasing black market botulinum toxins that are not regulated or FDA approved.
Bottom line, Botox treatments are not the same from one provider to the next and it’s best to be discerning when it comes to undergoing any facial cosmetic treatment. To learn more about Botox or to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced injectors, please call (801) 776-2220.
