How Long Does Botox Last?

One of the most important things to know about Botox  is that the treatment is NOT permanent. This is something you definitely should take into consideration since these injections are required at intervals in order to constantly reduce facial wrinkles. The good news is that since the effects of Botox injections are temporary, if you aren’t satisfied with the results, they’ll wear off.

However, we know that with our services, not only will you be satisfied, you’ll be recommending us to your friends and family! At Uptown Medical Wellness & Anti-Aging Center, we believe in giving customers realistic expectations of what Botox can and can’t do.

Visit us today and we’ll tell you all about the benefits of Botox and help you abolish those pesky wrinkles for good!

What You Can Expect

In general, the effects of Botox can last anywhere from three to four months. However, for first-time users, the effects might wear off in less than three months. As the muscles in the face become conditioned to Botox, results should start to lengthen. Botox injections around the eyes can also last under three months.

Men usually require more injections than women, but both should generally see their results lasting around three months. Keep in mind that Botox takes time to work, so expect to see a difference in as little as one to two days or up to one to two weeks at the most.

Botox injections work faster on smaller lines, such as forehead wrinkles, frown lines and brows. If you have crow’s feet around your eyes and wrinkles on the forehead, you will see quicker results.

The Benefits of Long-Term Use

There are many people who love Botox since effects are temporary. Regular injections can prevent wrinkles from growing or even appearing. Over time, facial expressions such as laughing or squinting eyes cause wrinkles to form. These wrinkles usually disappear when facial muscles relax. Yet, as we make normal expressions every day at multiple times, these lines become more prominent. After some time, dynamic wrinkles, which are the result of muscle motions from habitual movement, become part of your skin’s makeup.

Consistency is Key

Consistency is where Botox shines. When you become consistent with Botox injections, you are preventing potential wrinkles from forming and deepening. Botox limits the scope of facial muscle movement, and wrinkles end up looking better and non-existent over time. Getting Botox injections on a regular basis can also help relax stiff facial muscles, minimizing the dosage of future treatments.
