What is the cost of botox per unit with a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist in NYC?

Doctor Answers 11

Price of Botox

The price of Botox varies and it can be charged by area or by unit. I would suggest you to seek for a provider that charges by unit. Moreover, the price varies from 10 dollars per unit to up to 20+ dollars per unit, depending on the location and experience of the provider. For example, place with technicians may charge you $ 10 per unit while dermatologist at an upscale Park Avenue practice in Manhattan can charge you $30 per unit. For example, for crow’s feet you would need 5 units, and it can cost you from $50 to $150, depending on your provider.

Price of Botox

The price of Botox depends on many factors including the area placing the Botox, if additional Botox is needed is there a charge during follow-up and the experience of the injector performing the Botox.  Please consult an expert in Botox for the best cosmetic results.  Best, Dr. Green

Price of Botox/Dysport

Thank you for your question.  The price varies based on the practitioner's experience and geographic location.  I do not charge by the unit, but by the number of areas injected.  I spend the same amount of time assessing and administering the injections, regardless of how much product is being used. I charge $600 for the first area and less for additional sites.  You are wise to seek a Board Certified Dermatologist to perform this treatment.

Feel free to contact my office if you have any additional questions.

Cost of Botox

In the Denver area, I charge $12 per unit for Botox and $11 per unit for Xeomin.  All injections are administered by myself, not by a nurse or PA.  I would expect that the price in NYC would be higher.

My office does not charge per unit. It charges per treated area as each area is different. Best of luck with your decision to move forward.

Botox pricing

Fees will vary based on geography and experience.  Botox pricing can be incredibly confusing because some physicians will dilute and use more units than others to achieve the same outcome.  In my practice, I consult first and can then determine the number of units and cost before the patient commits to treatment.

Hello and thank you for your question. Cost varies based on geographic region and surgeon expertise.  The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.

Best wishes and good luck.
