Patients in New Jersey and beyond ask, “Is Botox worth the cost?”
Money cannot buy everything that is important including self-esteem and confidence. Fortunately, a treatment in dermatology can deliver both. Botox, one of the most popular dermatological treatments, can reverse the signs of aging. Results can last for three months or longer. Many patients in New Jersey will ask nationally known dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie, “Is Botox worth the cost?” Dr. Downie, founder of image Dermatology® in Montclair, will reply, “Absolutely!”
Your purse, shoes, and your outfit are important, but your face is your most important accessory because you “carry” it with you every day. Dr. Downie has been using Botox on patients for more than 20 years and more than 18 years on herself. She compares the need for Botox to breathing. If you can make it work within your budget and you are a candidate for the treatment, she highly recommends it.
Explaining the cost factors of Botox
The cost of Botox depends on various factors including unique patient needs and the number and location of the treatment areas. It is important to understand that Botox is sold by the unit. Therefore, frown lines may require 20-40 units or more and crow’s feet may require 12-20 units on each side. The location of the dermatological practice is another cost factor. Most importantly, it is critical to seek treatment from a Board certified dermatologist who is trained in administering Botox safely and effectively. While beauty salons and spas may offer Botox, they are not typically the safest or most effective options for treatment.
Dr. Downie’s team is happy to work with you to determine if Botox fits within your budget. The first step toward exploring treatment is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Downie. She will examine the areas you wish to have treated and review your medical history. If you are a candidate for Botox, she will devise a treatment plan. She may also provide recommendations for the optimal skin care regimen.
Dr. Downie has educated other doctors about Botox and been involved in clinical trials for other neurotoxins. She has witnessed the beautiful results Botox can deliver in her own appearance and seen patients rave about their experiences after treatments. Do you want to explore your candidacy for Botox?
