I was very surprised to find that the cost of Botox injections in Malaysia (USD4.90 - USD6.60 per unit) is cheaper even than Indonesia (USD7 - USD9 per unit), Thailand (USD7 - USD12 per unit) and the Philippines (USD8 - USD12 per unit)! Botox is also surprisingly affordable in Europe (USD5 - 12 per unit) and Russia (USD5 - USD10 per unit) , although it seems to be a very premium product in Japan (USD12 - USD25 per unit).
Just as a point of reference, I have also made another graphic which lists the amount of Botox generally needed for different treatment points around the face.
These infographics refer to the proprietary Botox product by Allergan. Dysport, or abobotulinum toxin A, is another neurotoxin product that is often used in place of Botox, but can be much cheaper. Dysport is also used in different dilutions to Botox, so the number of units needed for each procedure may vary. While these are the only two products available in Malaysia currently, there are other products including Xeomin. Dysport is also marketed under the brand name Reloxin and Azzalure.
