 E-mailPrintSaveSave as PDF

Wondering how much a cosmetic treatment will cost in your area?  I get questions like these all of the time from SkinTour readers:

  • What is the average botox cost? 
  • What is the average cost of Restylane?
  • How much does Latisse cost? 
  • How much does hair removal laser cost?
  • How much does laser resurfacing cost? 
  • How much does Fraxel cost?

To help answer these questions, I created this cost sheet as a guide to the average prices for various cosmetic dermatology treatments across the US.

Factors that determine cost:
