Botox is a non-invasive procedure which reduces the appearance or prominence of the facial lines caused by smiling, frowning or pouting. The appearance of lines around the eyes or crow’s feet, are associated with old age and many people want their prominence reduced. The lines around the mouth and above the eyebrows are also connected with old age and Botox is used to reduce their depth and give the appearance of a younger, more youthful face. Botox prices vary from clinic to clinic but do not be sold on a clinic because of the cost of Botox only.
As a non surgical procedure, Botox injections are administered on an outpatient basis and are completed in minutes. No overnight stays are required. How much is Botox? This is a question that can only be answered when the exact number of areas that are to be treated to achieve the desired outcome, are known. Botox treatments can be as little as £200 and as much as £1000 if you use the surgeon that Hollywood stars use. It is usual that the more individual treatment areas that are required, then the cheaper each Botox treatment becomes. A £200 single treatment may become £500 for 3 treatments and so on. It should be noted that cheap Botox injections may not be the best Botox injections. Make sure the reputation of the clinic and surgeon performing the procedure is good.
Botox prices can be found cheaper abroad than in the UK if adequate research is carried out. However, whenever the cost of Botox abroad is being considered, it should be done so with an understanding of the other costs involved. Flight and accommodation costs must be added into the calculations when considering treatment abroad. Although overnight stays are not required for the Botox treatment, due to flight landing and departure times and the clinic’s distance from the airport, an overnight stay is likely.
Anyone can have the Botox provided that the pre-treatment assessment does not reveal any existing conflicting allergies or problems with the nervous system, or muscular related syndromes. Botox prices should be the same per treatment for each patient, although each patient may need a different quantity of treatments. Pregnant women or women planning pregnancy soon should not be treated with Botox. Similarly, if a woman is breastfeeding, Botox will not be offered as a treatment option. If you are unsure of whether a condition that you have may cause complications then speak to a qualified medical professional. If any of the above complications exist and a clinic is aware and still offers treatment, potential patients should seek advice and notify the relevant professional body, regardless of how cheap the Botox price may be.
