When it comes to classic anti-aging treatments, it seems as though there’s one name that comes to mind – Botox.
Botox is a brand name for botulinum toxin type A, a type of neurotoxin that can be used to block nerve signals to muscles. Botox is highly effective at smoothing out the appearance of forehead wrinkles because it prevents the furrowing brow that exacerbates these expression lines.

Whether you’ve always been interested in Botox injections or are just researching the treatment to see what it can do for you, you’ve probably found yourself asking this question:
“How much does Botox cost?”
Botox costs are pretty standardized, which is good news. Botox is measured according to units, with each unit pricing out to about $10-$15. However, there is no standard approach to Botox pricing, as each patient will have different needs. Botox can be customized according to the number of units that are needed to treat those wrinkles and fine lines. A good rule of thumb is roughly 1 unit per year of age.
For example, if you have moderate forehead wrinkles around your eyebrows, you’ll likely need more Botox units than someone who is using Botox as a preventative measure. Your Botox provider will work with you to determine the final price of your treatments.
