Repairing damaged skin and inducing collagen generation may be affected with a variety of treatments. It is very difficult to know what treatment would be the best for you without first consulting with a board-certified physician with the experience and training required. Not all treatments may be appropriate for your skin and may not be effective for you. A physician can best advise you on which treatment may be right in your case. The prices listed may also vary depending on your case, number of treatments needed, region of the country and other factors.
It depends on each individual doctor or practice how they scale their prices, but Botox Cosmetic injections are typically charged by they area – forehead, crow’s feet and in-between the brows lines. For these three areas the costs can be anywhere between $550 and $700, depending on how deep your wrinkles are and how many actual units the doctor will use. That being said, make sure you focus on the price of an individual unit, rather than the price of one area. Again, the price will vary according to the area you live in, but it will mostly range between $10-$20 dollars per unit.
The price of Juvederm and Restylane dermal fillers will vary greatly based on the geographical area as well. The range can be anywhere between $300 and $1000 per syringe. How many syringes the doctor will use depends on how deep your wrinkles are, what facial areas you want treated and what the desired outcome is. Typically, under eyes area requires 2 syringes of Juvederm, nasolabial areas require 2 syringes as well, and one syringe is used for the lips. Each medical practice is different but at many places you can now negotiate a discount if you’re using more than one syringe.
The price of Fraxel laser treatment will greatly depend on two factors: which geographical area the doctor’s practice is located in, and how aggressive the laser treatment will be. With all factors considered, the total costs can range anywhere between $700 and $3000.
Remember that for you as a patient rather than looking for the least expensive deal, it is much more important to find a doctor who is well-educated, skilled and experienced in wrinkle treatments!
