The cost of Botox®
Botox® is an increasingly popular non-surgical intervention for
a variety of both medical and aesthetic conditions. With the
possibility of Botox® being used to treat migraines, as well as its
current use for control of excessive sweating and facial wrinkles,
it is no surprise that it is becoming popular.
But, can you measure the quality of a Botox® treatment by the
price? With some clinics and companies offering Botox® at
extortionate prices whilst other opt for cheap Botox® treatments,
how does the discerning Glasgow client know which clinics are
reputable and which are not?
Not just based on price
Clearly, the selection of the right Glasgow Botox® clinic for
you is not a decision that should be solely based on price - high
prices do not always equate with high quality as the treatment
should be more than just about 'inject and then leave'.
Clearly there should be a thorough process that every clinic
should follow, including your suitability for the treatment, the
after care and support, as well as future treatments the clinic
What is a fair price for Botox®?
Unfortunately, this will vary from clinic to clinic and can make
comparison difficult. Some clinics charge per area such as
treatment of frown lines or crows feet and others charge per vial
of toxin so it is wise to check what is included in the price.
Check carefully what is on offer and
for how much.
What factors affect price?
There are numerous factors that can affect the price of Botox®,
making it an affordable, if not cheap, non-surgical intervention
for Glasgow clients.
- The number of areas being treated will affect price. It is
usually more cost effective to have several areas treated than just
- Some clinics charge per vial. Each patient effectively
purchases a vial. This can work out more expensive if only
one area is to be treated or you may feel you have to get more
areas treated than you wish to get value for money. Do not be
swayed into having other areas treated that you do not want
- Ask what happens at the review appointment if more toxin is
required, some clinics charge extra for a 'top up'
- Brand of toxin can affect price
- Skills of the injector - a newly trained injector may offer
cheap toxin treatments until they gain confidence and
- If it seems too cheap I would question why.
- Clinic location is also important as you may find some of the
exclusive centres in London may charge considerably more than other
clinics across the UK. This is more to do with business decisions
such as overheads, rather than due to a differing quality of Botox®
treatments between clinics.
Deciding on Botox® treatments for your problem areas is a
decision that should not be rushed and so rather than basing your
decision on 'which clinic?' based on price, also check the quality
of service and treatment on offer - what are other customers and
clients saying about the clinic?
Allure Aesthetics is a clinic in Glasgow with a
modern consulting room and high qualified staff; their Botox®
packages are competitively priced but with a high end customer
service, why go anywhere else?
