How much do botulinum toxin injections cost?
The cost of botulinum toxin injections vary by surgeon, geographic area, and the number and location of the areas being treated. For example, if the surgeon is treating a large area of your body, such as your under arms, your treatment will require much more medication than the face and be more expensive. You should discuss the anticipated costs with your surgeon before your treatment. You should also ask the surgeon about their policy regarding the cost of touch-ups the first few weeks after your initial injection.
The average cost for botulinum toxin is $408*.
*The above statistic comes from the 2020 Aesthetic Plastic Surgery National Databank Statistics, which were compiled using Aesthetic Neural Network (ANN) data from 288 participating plastic surgery practices across the US. This number only reflects standard procedure costs (surgeon and facility fees) and may not include other fees for medical tests, prescriptions, surgical garments, or other miscellaneous costs related to your procedure.
Does insurance cover botulinum toxin injections?
Because botulinum toxin injections are an elective cosmetic treatment, insurance does not typically cover the costs. Many surgeons offer patient financing plans to make the procedure more affordable.
However, if you are prescribed the injections to reduce perspiration or treat migraine headaches or muscle spasticity, the costs may be covered. You should check with your insurance company for more information on what they cover. Your surgeon’s office should be able to help you with this process.
What should I consider when evaluating the cost of botulinum toxin injections?
Choose your surgeon based on quality, training, and experience—not cost.
