How Long Does Botox® Take to Work?

Botox® can resolve deeper wrinkles resulting from aging and repetitive movements. It’s a trusted brand known for its incredible results, but you may be wondering, how long does Botox® take to work?

How Long Does Botox® Take to Work? 

While you may see some of the results of Botox® injections after 3 days, the full results can up to two weeks to see. They take a bit of time to work because of the process the neurotoxin in Botox® has to perform to silence the nerves in the facial muscles. The nerves in the face absorb Botox® injections and the neurotoxin in the injections binds to the nerves, blocking them from sending signals. This is not an immediate process because countless nerves are in the face. 

The results of Botox® treatment are temporary and can last anywhere between 3-6 months, depending on dosing and where the dynamic wrinkles are. A Balanced Aesthetic specialist will determine the dosing of Botox® injections for the most natural-looking results. 

Botox® Overview

The neurotoxin helps to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, such as those that appear between the brows and the frown lines. One of our Balanced Aesthetic specialists will assess your individual goals during your consultation. 

What is the Botox® Treatment Like? 

The procedure for Botox® is simple series of injections. We use the thinnest needle possible to deliver the injections, and you will feel only a tiny pinch. During the session, Botox® injections only take around 10-15 minutes to complete, making it a convenient, short procedure. 

Benefits of Botox® 

With one Botox® session, you can see the maximum desired results after a couple of weeks. Botox® is one of the safest and most reliable treatments for fine lines and wrinkles, especially on the forehead, around the eyes, and on the frown lines. After seven days, 74% of patients who have received Botox® on their frown lines have noticeable results. 

Am I a Good Candidate with Botox®? 

You may be a good candidate for Botox® injections if you have moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines, or crow’s feet that you want to reduce the appearance of. 

Botox® can also prevent moderate to severe wrinkles in patients in their 20s or 30s. Rarely have patients had an allergic reaction, but most do not experience reactions to Botox®. This injectable treatment has been FDA-approved for decades and is certified as a safe cosmetic treatment.
