What Are the Average Botox Wages?

Average Botox WagesSince its inception, Botox has been one of the most popular cosmetic injectables on the market. Trends show that the demand for injectables will only increase over time. In this blog post, we’ll go over Botox wages and more.

Understanding Botox

Botox is a protein derived from a bacteria known as Clostridium botulinum. This bacteria is naturally occurring and generally harmless. It has also been determined safe for therapeutic use by the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology (AOCD). When administered in small doses, Botox can help smooth wrinkles. It may also treat some muscle conditions.

There are many different commercial versions of Botulinum toxin, although Botox is the most popular. Other name brands include Dysport, Jeuveau, Myobloc, and Xeomin. Patients may refer to any of these products interchangeably with Botox. However, Botox is a registered trademark of Allergan Inc.

Botox Wages

According to SimplyHired, the average Botox injector makes $84,290 per year. However, Botox wages vary on a case-by-case basis. Many people may inject Botox under different job titles. Plus, medical aestheticians (such as cosmetic nurses) can also work under different pay structures. The most common are hourly, commission, and salary.

Additionally, physicians (like doctors, plastic surgeons, and dermatologists) may also choose to undergo Botox training to maximize their income potential. Because these services are purely cosmetic, patients must pay out-of-pocket — meaning more for your bottom line. Each unit of Botox costs an average of $10 to $15, which can add up quickly.

Botox Training

Only medical professionals can administer Botox and other cosmetic injectables, such as Juvederm and Kybella. Botox training is also a quick and easy way to complete your CE/CME credits. Many of our students have completed our course over just one weekend.
