As the leader in injectable medications for the reduction of dynamic wrinkles, this medication can also be used to reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines, stop overactive sweat glands and contribute to an overall total facial rejuvenation treatment. Botox® is an excellent way to reduce or even eliminate wrinkles in the brows and around the eyes. Depending on your specific anatomy, Botox can also be used to reduce the appearance of jowls, marionette lines and other lower facial issues. The cost of Botox is $16/unit. While everyone is different, most people need 20 to 60 units to get an excellent cosmetic result and virtual elimination of your frown lines, crow’s feet and upper-forehead lines. This means that the typical cost for a single treatment is $320-$1,000.
Less well-known than Botox, but another brand-name version of Botulinum Toxin-A, Dysport® is preferred by some clients because it may spread more evenly and be more effective for the “crow’s feet.” It, too, is FDA-cleared to reduce dynamic wrinkles of the glabellar muscles and cervical dystonia.
Whether you prefer Dysport or Botox is really a matter of personal choice and favor. We encourage you to try both and see for yourself.
Three Dysport units are the equivalent of one Botox unit. Thus when we talk about the cost of Dysport in the office, even though the price is technically $5/unit, we multiply the price by 3 and divide the number of units by 3. So, to get the same effect as 25 units of Botox, one needs to use 75 manufacturer units of Dysport. On your invoice you will see the "normalized price" of $15 but the math works out:
75 x $5 = 25 x $15 = $375
Average treatments cost between $300-$900.
Xeomin® is the latest brand name of Botulinum Toxin-A to be FDA-cleared for the reduction of the “11s” between your brows and for cervical dystonia and blepharospasm. We do not treat blepharospasm at Morpheus, however we are happy to refer you to a competent ophthalmologist who does. Typically, patients need 20 to 60 units to treat the upper face (brows, forehead, crow’s feet) meaning that a treatment usually costs from $300-$900.
