Default Botox pricing - why per area instead of per syringe?

I don't understand, injectable fillers you pay PER SYRINGE. With Botox you pay per area treated. Does anyone know why? It's like they reel you in with a low price per area, but you end up having to get so many areas done it costs a few hundred bucks.

Simple. They can make more money that way.

Botox isn't that expensive when you do the math. Each area is $350 to $500. Let's say it's 500, and that's 4 times a year so 2000. So for ten years that will cost you $20,000 for botox treatment and that's about the price of a facelift, which you need about every decade.

Well technically that's not correct and the price is a bit high. If you begin Botox treatment when your 30, by the time you're 40 you will have spent $20k. However most women and men don't need a facelift at that age or close to it. I think if the price were about half what it is would be more reasonable. I'm sure once it goes generic this will happen but we're a few years off from that.

Yeah I see what you mean. Botox is cheap for the short term but if you're getting it every 3 months that is a TON of money you are spending over 10 years. They need to come down with the price. How long until generic Botox comes out?
