While there’s no denying that Botox is an extremely popular and potent anti-aging injectable, it does come with associated costs.
In an effort to enhance their appearance and circumvent these costs, some people may wonder: “Where can I get free Botox?”
Because injectors themselves often pay a significant price for the actual product, it’s usually not possible for any provider to offer Botox free of charge.
However, many practices have rewards programs where patients can earn points towards a Botox treatment.
In fact, Allergan, the company that manufactures Botox, offers a Brilliant Distinctions program that allows patients to accumulate and apply loyalty points for Botox discounts.
Botox is an FDA-approved neurotoxin designed to temporarily relax wrinkles and lines for smoother skin and a more refreshed appearance.
Popular Botox areas include horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, bunny lines, neck lines, a gummy smile, and downturned corners of the mouth.
When injected into targeted facial muscles, Botox blocks communication between nerves and muscles.
In doing so, Botox prevents muscles from contracting and wrinkling the skin above.
This paralytic effect lasts approximately three-to-four months and help patients look like younger and well-rested versions of themselves.
With so many benefits, it’s understandable that demand for Botox is on the rise. However, some individuals may be concerned about the price of treatment and wonder, “Where can I get free Botox?”
This may have been the case for two California men, who earlier this year, had $4,000 worth of Botox injections and suddenly left the facility without paying.
While the injector now believes that there were some signs of suspicious behavior, it wasn’t until the two patients both claimed to need to use the restroom at the same time, that the staff became concerned.
When the receptionist attempted to stop the 2 men from fleeing, one pushed her out of the way and both escaped. Fortunately, the provider had taken “before” photographs of the two suspects to aid authorities.
If you’re thinking – “Where can I get free Botox?” – there’s no need to resort to drastic and criminal measures. However, it is important to understand the estimated cost of Botox injections and ensure that you can manage the treatment financially.
Typically, Botox pricing is based per unit with the average cost per unit ranging from $10-$20. Prior to committing to injections, be sure that you understand the associated fees and that they almost always have to be paid out of pocket.
