How Do I Get a Botox Discount Coupon or Rebate?

Thanks for the question -
Allergan - the manufacturer of Botox - is competitively positioning itself because there are several products coming to market which have been approved by the FDA for similar indications (wrinkles).
You can contact your doctor's office to see if they are available.
I hope this helps!
Special Incentives and Programs are Available on the Allergan website
There are existing programs, incentives, and special promotions available to you from Allergan, Inc. I would advise you to go to Allergan’s website www.botoxcosmetic.com to investigate their exclusive offers and incentives. If the ‘coupon’ is legitimate and is from Allergan, then most physician injectors will accept the coupon. A simple call to a physician’s office will quickly settle your question. I hope this helps!
The Inside Scoop on Plastic Surgery Rebates
Since Dysport was cleared by the FDA and became a direct competition to Botox, there is usually have some sort of plastic surgery rebate available to patients. Done right, rebates can be a great way to save you a lot of money. Unfortunately, they can also be frustrating and not worth your time.That's why I wrote my latest blog about them.
Allergan (who distributes Botox, Juvederm and Latisse) has a loyalty program called Brilliant Disctinctions which some of our patients love and others find extremely frustrating. This is the program that is being advertised. If you are the type who likes to work coupons and frequent flyer miles, you may be able to get the coupons to save some money on your injectable treatments but it requires a lot of work. The best discounts are when you do two or more of their procedures together (Duet Program).
Medicis, the company that distributes Dysport, frequently has rebate programs available. They tend to be simple and straightforward and we have not had any patients complain about them.
My real concern about plastic surgery rebates have to do with enticing someone into a medical procedure. It might work like this: imagine you have had Botox (or Dysport) in the past and it is still working — should you go ahead and have it redone before the rebate runs out even though you don’t need it? What if you have never had a filler before and you’re on the fence about whether or not this is right for you? Should you just go ahead and do it because there is a big rebate attached with your Botox? I sort of think no to both of these.
Because of all the confusion, we just dedicated a page on our website strictly to plastic surgery rebates and loyalty programs.Good Luck! The link is below.

Getting Botox discounts
Allergan launched a Botox Rewards program in this past summer (2009). The program works by providing $25 rewards coupons to consistent users of Botox. You can go to the www.botoxcosmetic.com website to learn more about their program.
The rebate cards can be obtained from doctors' offices.
Call and ask your doctors' office to see whether they have any of these rebate offers remaining. The offer is good for an additional $50 rebate 3-4 months after your initial injection.
Just ask the doctor to 'honor' the coupon deal and I predict that almost all of them will. I think giving you a 50 dollar off of a $750 to $1000 is resonable.
The manufacturers of Botox, Allergan, have a rewards program called Brilliant Distinctions. Each time that you receive treatment with an Allergan product (Juvederm, Botox, SkinMedica skin care and peels) you will earn points towards coupons, that will eventually earn you a particular dollar amount off your next treatment. Galderma, the manufacturer of Dysport also has a similar rewards program called, Aspire. All you need to do for both is sign up!
