Etiquette on tipping for Botox?

I’ve only had it done once but it didn’t even occur to me to tip.

You say you don’t have deep wrinkles, so I would consider going somewhere else as you are overpaying or getting far more units than you need. I’m 31 and got 8 units and it did everything I wanted. It was $12/unit or $96 total.  I was told the FDA recommendation is 20 units, so if you are paying $11/unit, you are getting far more than that and almost surely needlessly.

Once you start getting Botox, you should need it done less often, as collagen has time to build up in those areas. I would find a practitioner who is willing to start conservatively and then increase your dose if needed.

I’m surprised at everyone’s responses. I think you should tip on Botox. It is a beauty service just as getting your hair or nails done is. It is not like going to a doctor’s office for medical care where you use insurance. This is a luxury service you are electing to receive. The person providing you with the service should be tipped.

daisyqueen :  its a medical procedure performed by (hopefully) a medical doctor or nurse and that’s why people don’t tip? I don’t tip my family dr or dentist (even when it’s an out of pocket cost).

alexaj12 :  I mean they charge you per unit, not your age. If you don’t feel like you needed the CC amount they used, then next time tell them to do less  units.

 

 

As far as tipping, I do not tip for that just like I don’t tip my dermatologist or orthodontist.

lifeisbeeutiful :  Going to your family doctor and dentist hardly are the same as going to receive Botox. It is a spa-procedure, do you tip massage therapists if you get a massage? They are licensed professionals. So are hairstylists.

daisyqueen :  it’s not a spa procedure. It IS a medical procedure. You are injecting botulinum toxin into your body. NOT the same as a haircut or massage smh.
