Are Botox Treatments Priced by the Unit?
The amount that you are quoted to get a Botox treatment does not depend only on the unit of Botox you need, but here are a few things that come in the picture.
What are the negative effects of using too little or too many Botox units?
The units of Botox are measured with very specific end results in mind. This means that, if you use too little or too much of the Botox in that particular area, you may either not see any result at all, or may suffer from some side effects, either in terms of health, or in terms of physical appearance.
For instance, if the cost for a particular unit of Botox is more than your budget, using less than required will not give you a little benefit. In fact, it may be a waste of your money, because you may not see any results at all, unless you use the specified unit of Botox for that area.
