“A positive outlook is an important part of overall health and wellness,” says DealWell President and Co-Founder Geoffrey Fischer.

From well-known movie stars to the average Jane (and Joe), Botox is widely used to help maintain a youthful appearance. But Botox can actually be used to treat other conditions. In fact, Botox was first approved for treating two eye muscle disorders in 1989, 13 years before the drug was approved for cosmetic uses. And it has found global popularity. Botox is approved for nearly 30 different conditions in 88 countries. North Texas consumers interested in trying Botox can visit’s hub page to compare, bid and save on Botox and other injection treatments.

William Moore, clinical director at Advanced Skin Fitness, administers Botox. Advanced Skin Fitness typically performs facial injections for cosmetic results, but says it is known for other surprising uses – the first five garnering U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval:

  •     Muscle and eyelid spasms
  •     TMJ and neck pain
  •     Excessive sweating in the underarms, hands and feet
  •     Migraine headaches
  •     Overactive bladder
  •     Breast lifts
  •     Shaping smaller calves
  •     Reshaping the face

“Dallasites are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars every year on Botox,” says Moore, a DealWell provider. “Recapturing a youthful look drives most of that business, but there is a growing swell of people turning to Botox to find relief from painful or embarrassing medical conditions. Our facility typically performs injections for cosmetic results, but consumers who are fighting migraines, neck pain and excessive sweating should ask their doctor if Botox treatments are an option.”

For cosmetic Botox injections, providers sell the drug either by the unit or the area, such as the nose bridge, forehead and eyes. Typically, it takes an average of 20 units of Botox to relax a single area. The cost of those 20 units varies. Calls to DFW providers turned up an average of $15/unit, with $22.50/unit at the high point.

DealWell features Botox discounts as low as $7.95/unit, but as with all of the discount site’s offers, consumers can bid for even lower prices. Visitors to enter their ZIP Code, choose the Medical Spa/Day Spa category and then Botox as the service. DealWell negotiates discounts of up to 85 percent off the retail price for every service on the site.
