Lately I have answered several phone calls for patients inquiring on BOTOX pricing. They have asked; “How much do you sell your BOTOX for?”. To which I respond; “$12.50 a unit”. Then they ask; “What’s a unit?”. Come to find out, these patients are buying their BOTOX by the syringe. So I ask them; “How many units did your injector put into the syringe?”. I typically get the response; “I don’t know”.
I’m stirred to blog about this because a syringe can hold 2.5 units to 25 units at “full”. Once BOTOX has been put into a syringe and it’s not used, it has to be thrown away. I personally alternate between 10 units to 25 units.
10 units will cost me $125. 25 units will cost $312.50.
I honestly do not want to pay for product I don’t need. So, please ask your injector “how many units are in that syringe?”.
Dr. Dehghan will only use the amount you need; therefore you only pay for what you need.
