Dr. Lam performs more BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments than any other single provider in our great state of New Mexico. He has been ranked as the TOP 50 provider in the country which is higher than the Black Diamond provider status that he had attained in the past. As New Mexico’s top provider, Dr. Lam gets a lot of questions from patients who are BOTOX®-curious, but perhaps the most popular is, “How much does BOTOX® Cosmetic cost?”

Here at AlluraDerm MD Med Spa, BOTOX® is $13 per unit, which we feel is a fair price considering Dr. Lam’s skill and expertise as the #1 BOTOX® provider in the state and Top 50 among over 50,000 injectors nation-wide. In addition, all our injectors are licensed medical physicians who have had years of experience in providing cosmetic injections with optimal safety and results.

We also believe our price is fair because we offer our patients something that money cannot buy, and that is peace of mind. Recently, the FDA issued a warning that a counterfeit version of BOTOX® has entered the market in the United States and that it may have been sold to medical practices nationwide. As your trusted provider, you can feel confident that AlluraDerm goes above and beyond to protect our patients, and that our physicians are always keeping an eye on events like these. Beyond this immediate concern, other practices may additionally “water down” BOTOX® Cosmetic to lower their prices, use copycat products and claim that they are the same as BOTOX®, or fail to disclose to their patients that they are using a BOTOX® substitute. BOTOX® is the #1 injectable muscle relaxer in the world for wrinkle treatment, with the most data available on safety and efficacy. When it comes to your face, it pays to invest in the very best!

In order to fully understand the cost of a BOTOX® treatment, you need to understand how much BOTOX® Cosmetic is needed for common treatment areas. Below you will find a quick breakdown about the average doses we use for various areas. Keep in mind, these are averages and prices always depend on your customized treatment plan. You may need a little less or a little more BOTOX® depending on your unique anatomy and beauty goals.

Forehead Lines: The forehead lines or forehead rows are horizontal lines that are caused by lifting the eyebrows. Although the FDA recommended dose is 20 units to treat these lines, we typically use around 12.5 units of BOTOX® for this treatment area initially.

Crow’s Feet: Crow’s feet are the lines that form on the outside corners of our eyes. They are most visible when a person smiles or squints. As we age, these lines become more visible. To treat crow’s feet, studies have shown that you can expect to need around 24 units of BOTOX® total for females.

Glabellar Lines (Frown Lines): The glabella region refers to the space between your eyebrows. As we age, many people develop furrows in this area that are often deep and can make them look tired, angry, sad, or upset. Typically, we use around 25 units of BOTOX® to treat this area for females.

BOTOX® Maintenance Costs

Another factor to consider when researching BOTOX® treatment is the cost of maintenance. Depending on your age and skin, results from your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will typically last about 3 months initially, although with proper maintenance, they can often (but not always) last longer. It is also worth noting that BOTOX® treatments are considered elective, so it is unlikely that insurance will cover your treatments.

If you are considering adding BOTOX® Cosmetic to your beauty routine, remember that provider experience and training is always more important than cost. You want a trusted injector to provide high-quality products at an optimal placement, depth, and dose. There is a reason why we are the number one provider of BOTOX® in New Mexico, and there is a reason why some practices try to entice you with cheaper pricing. We always want you to be safe and feel your best.
