Ever since Botox was first approved by the FDA for cosmetic reduction of facial wrinkles and fine lines, it has continued to remain the world’s most sought after non-surgical anti-aging facial procedure. One of the reasons behind its sustained success is that this injectable med spa treatment is considerably more affordable in comparison to both plastic surgery as well as other non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures.
Sky Balance Med Spa, led by Dr. Sameer Naseeruddin, is a premier provider of Botox and various other facial aesthetic procedures. The medical spa has highly trained and experienced staff to administer non-surgical treatments in a safe and comfortable environment. Sky Balance receives patients from Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and surrounding communities.
A number of surgical and non-surgical treatments are available today to enhance facial appearance and reduce the signs of aging. Every procedure offers its own unique benefits and comes with its own costs. Most of these procedures are not covered by health insurance companies. This makes it important for a patient to compare the costs while choosing a particular treatment.
A major procedure such as a full facelift surgery will cost several thousands of dollars. Some of the non-surgical treatments that involve technologies such as lasers, ultrasound, RF, or even peels and dermal fillers will typically cost more than Botox injections. Among all these procedures, Botox may turn out to be the most cost effective med spa treatment, with its results lasting for about three to six months.
Botox treatment cost will vary from one med spa to another, and may even vary between two patients at the same med spa. Geographical factors, reputation of the med spa, skills of the treatment provider, and the kind of personalized care and service offered at a particular facility can impact the cost of Botox treatment.
On an individual patient basis, the cost can vary at the same med spa, depending on the extent of treatment required for a particular patient. If the total surface area to be treated is higher, it will require more units of Botox solution to be injected. In some cases, the patient may need only a minor maintenance procedure, requiring lesser quantity of Botox.
Cost aspect aside, it is important for a patient to choose the appropriate Botox treatment center in order to achieve safe and predictable results. Sky Balance is a leading medical spa providing Botox and other procedures to patients in Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and nearby locations.
A Botox practice will usually determine the cost of treatment on a per unit basis. But some practices may also take into account the particular area of the face that needs to be treated and may charge differently for each area. Some others may offer a flat rate for specific areas such as treatment of frown lines or crow’s feet around the eyes.
If the procedure is performed for aesthetic reasons, the monetary amount will not be covered under insurance. However, in some cases, Botox may be used as a medical necessity. Patients should check their health plan in such cases well in advance.
