If like many other people you’re considering non-invasive and non-surgical treatments to enhance your looks as you age, you’re probably considering Botox and Facial Fillers. But what can you expect from these two treatments and what is the cost of botox and fillers?
The Cost of Botox and Fillers
The cost of Botox and Facial Fillers can vary dramatically between clinics. The same holds true as it does with most things that the more the pay the more you get. The cheapest isn’t the best! When it comes to treatments for your body you are probably like most people in that what is more important rather than cost, is feel assured that the professional carrying out the treatment is certified, trained, experienced and the clinic has strict levels of hygiene and health and safety standards so that you have less chance of catching an infection post treatment, and it will be as successful as possible.
The cost of a Botox treatment will be anywhere between $200 and $800 depending on the extent of the treatment that you want and the experience and reputation of the clinic that you choose. For prices at the lower end you should certainly check out the reputation and experience levels of the people who will be carrying out the treatment and have a look at the clinic to ensure you’re happy with how it looks and feels. Dirt and untidy clinic usually equals lower hygiene standards.
For dermal and facial fillers the cost will vary by the amount of filler injections required, which can vary significantly, and the clinic carrying out the procedure based on their reputation. Some of the best plastic surgery clinics in California charge anywhere up to $8000 for a filler treatment as they have the bets reputation in the country and have the most experienced Doctors performing this work. For a minimal filler with a small clinic that doesn’t specialise you could pay as little as $600 but you should be wary of prices this low, what is the quality of their product they are injecting into your face, and how experienced is the clinician? Average costs are around $1500 so expect to pay this for a normal facial filler treatment.
Costs of Botox and Facial Fillers are rarely covered by health insurance companies unless the treatment is to treat facial scars and contour deformities due to an accident.
How Long Can You Expect Botox and Fillers to Last?
Because Botox and Facial Fillers aren’t surgical procedures but use natural products to stimulate natural body reactions, they aren’t permanent. For Botox you can expect to see the effects of the treatment for around 10 to 14 weeks, and for Fillers expect potentially 6 months to 2 years.
Both can be highly effective in giving your face a more youthful look, and can be carried on as ongoing treatment once the effects start to wear off. As part of a combined treatment plan with other treatments you should be able to shed years off your looks.
