How Long Does Botox® Last?

If you are considering Botox®, you may be wondering how long the effects last and whether it is worth the investment. Continue reading to learn more about how Botox® treatments work and how long you can expect the effects to last.

Botox® Overview

Botox® is the brand name for Onabotulinumtoxina, which is a neurotoxin. When injected into the skin, it stops nerves from sending signals to the muscles in the face. This stops them from contracting, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments that we offer at Balanced Aesthetics Med Spa and the results are amazing and long-lasting.

There are a number of different types of neurotoxins that have been FDA approved for use, such as Xeomin®, but Botox® is the most well-known. 

How Long Botox® Lasts

In an ideal world, the effects of Botox® would be permanent, but unfortunately, they are not. Eventually, the effects of the neurotoxin will wear off and the nerves will continue sending signals to the muscles, causing them to contract again. When this happens, the fine lines and wrinkles will return.

The length of time that it lasts varies from person to person, but Botox® tends to last an average of 3-4 months before the effects wear off. However, it can last as long as 6 months in some people while others will only see a difference for 2 months. 

In most cases, the first treatment will not last as long. But when people have subsequent Botox® treatments, they notice that the effects last longer before wearing off. 

The initial effects of Botox® take around 3-5 days to kick in, but it can take up to a week or 10 days.

Benefits of Botox®

Botox® is one of the most effective ways to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It is an incredibly simple treatment to administer and when you work with our expert technicians, they will always use ultra-thin needles and precise dosages to ensure the most comfortable treatment. Aside from a small pinch from the needle, it is a pain-free treatment.

There are a few potential side effects when having Botox but the vast majority of people don’t have any side effects at all. Botox® does not require any downtime to recover and you can go about your day as normal.

Botox® is a much better alternative to surgical options and the results are excellent, especially with regular upkeep. 

Am I a Candidate For Botox®?

Anybody that wants to tighten up their skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles is an excellent candidate for Botox®.

In rare cases, people can be allergic to Botox® but the majority of people will be absolutely fine and it has been certified as safe by the FDA. The treatment is effective for people with different skin types and tones, so anybody that wants to give themselves a quick facelift is a good candidate.
