Do you tip for botox?

Postby macy1 » Thu Dec 18, 2008 1:27 am

Usually, I have botox and juvederm treatments done at my dermatologist's office by an R.N. This time I'm going to have botox done at a salon that specializes in laser, facials, etc. I don't usually tip at my derm's office since it's a doctor's office. Should I plan on tipping at the salon? And if so, how much percentage? And later, if I pay for a $500 laser treatment, do I tip on top of that too?

I'm curious what others do when they pay for expensive treatments, like laser, fillers, etc.? Do you pay a tip on top of that since it's at a salon? If tipping is standard for the more expensive procedures, it would obviously be more cost effective to stay at my derm's office, but they don't have Saturday or evening hours. I recently had the same dilemma when had LHR. The cost of treatment was $550 for about 2 1/2 hours and I had no idea how much to tip.

I've never heard of tipping for that! It never even occurred to me! My doctor does this for me, so of course, I'd never tip my doctor. Even at a spa, isn't the injector at least a nurse? We're paying them huge amounts of money, believe me, they don't need a tip. They pay so little for the actual botox or filler, they're making almost all profit.

Yeah, I thought of that too. I just don't know what the protocol is when procedures are done at a salon vs. at a doctor's office. If you get a facial at a salon, you tip. But I don't know if you do when you get a photofacial, or LHR, or have a filler put in. And if you do tip, how much? Because the procedures are so expensive, that you couldn't afford to tip based on a percentage of the price. And if tipping is standard at a salon, would be more cost effective to go back to the dermatologist's office where no one expects a tip. I'm not used to doing anything at a salon except having my hair trimmed, so I'm completely unsure what is standard.
