Understanding the costs of med spa treatments like BOTOX® or microneedling is a helpful step in planning your treatment and deciding on a med spa in your area. However, simply asking, “How much is BOTOX?” or “What’s your price for microneedling?” won’t give you all of the information you need to know to make an informed decision.
Price is what you pay, but value is what you get. And it’s critical to focus on the value of your med spa treatments, so that you’re happiest with your results. Here are a few insider tips to help you find the best value for your med spa treatments.
Compare Prices In Your Area
A reasonable first step is to begin by comparing the prices of BOTOX or other treatments you’re interested in from several providers in your area to get a ballpark idea of the going rate where you live. This information essentially tells you what you might expect to pay and whether there are any red flags, such as one provider with suspiciously low prices compared to the others.
Keep in mind that for many nonsurgical treatments, the cost is set by the manufacturer, and anyone who offers the treatment agrees to provide it only at a set price. But even then, providers may have some ability to bundle services or throw in “extras” that in essence make any one service a bit cheaper.
But Cheaper Isn’t Always Better
So let’s say you find a great deal on a top treatment you’re considering. Why isn’t the extremely low-priced option the obvious winner? Remember, the goal isn’t to simply find the absolute lowest price — it’s to find the best value. You want to make sure you’re getting quality results and not putting your health and safety at risk, while paying a fair price for the expertise of your provider and the quality of services. So be sure to weigh quality against price when making comparisons.
Choose a Med Spa You Like, Then Ask about Specials
Our advice is to focus your research on the highest quality med spas in your area, noting the medical credentials of each provider, asking friends and family who get cosmetic treatments who they’ve had a good experience with, and possibly even scheduling a consultation or two yourself. Then, once you’ve narrowed down your search, ask each of those practices about any available deals, specials or promotions that could help you save money on BOTOX, fillers, microneedling or other treatments without sacrificing quality.
