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.
