How much does Botox cost?
There’s no one-size-fits-all Botox cost. The price you’re quoted will depend on the clinic providing the treatment. Other things that influence the Botox price include:
- The size of the area being treated.
- The number of units required. A Botox price is worked out per unit, with different volumes needed depending on the facial area and type of wrinkle being treated.
- How often you need injections. The effects of Botox wear off after a few months so you may need to book repeat appointments to maintain the look.
The typical Botox price can be upwards of SR56 per unit. You can get exact quotes by contacting approved clinics using our clinic locator.
What is included in the Botox injection price?
The Botox price can include everything from an initial consultation with a clinician, to the cost of materials, the procedure itself, and aftercare guidance.
If you’re happy to go ahead with the treatment and there are no concerns about your medical record, the clinic will calculate the amount of Botox needed. You may be charged per Botox unit or by facial area. Forehead lines generally require around 20 units, while crow’s feet might need around 12.
It may only take 10 minutes to complete the procedure but remember that the Botox cost covers the expertise of an approved practitioner.
Your clinician will usually:
- Clean your face to prepare it for the injection.
- Ask you to move your facial muscles to find a good injection point.
- Use a fine needle to inject the muscles in the target area with Botox.
Is the Botox cost worth it?
Is Botox permanent?
No. No matter whether you’re having Botox for wrinkles or for migraines, it only offers a temporary solution. Its effects usually last for three to four months and you’ll need follow-up injections. However, it may be best to wait three months before getting another Botox treatment, as too many can reduce its effectiveness.
Can you have Botox preventatively?
Preventative Botox is often used by younger people to stop faint wrinkles becoming deeper. It can involve two to four treatments a year. The Botox price should be in the same range as regular treatments.

When it comes to treating the effects of ageing, Botox isn’t your only option.
- Serums and creams. Antioxidant creams are easy to buy and shouldn’t break the bank. But while Botox is almost guaranteed to affect your skin, it may take a while to find a cream that works for you. You’ll need to use skincare daily for it to have any affect.
- Vitamins. Taking vitamins or supplements could improve your skin quality over time. Vitamins C, D and E are all great for reducing wrinkles, improving dark spots, and hydrating your skin.
- Chemical peels. These remove the top layer of your skin to get rid of any dead skin cells and help fresh skin grow back more smoothly. But they still require a skincare specialist to carry out the treatment and you may need a few sessions until you see results.
- Fillers. Dermal fillers could add more volume to areas like your cheeks and mouth helping to create a more youthful appearance. They usually need topping up every six to twelve months.
- Botox was the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the world in 2019.
- Botox treatments are based on a toxin created by the Clostridium botulinum.
