How long does Botox last?

BOTOX . 3 answers . 5 years ago

How long will the results last, and is there anything I can do to make results last longer? Does having botox repeatedly affect how long it lasts?

Botox typically lasts 3-4 months but does depend a bit on which area of
the face is injected. Repeated use of Botox does have a small positive
effect on duration. If you consistently go for treatment every 3-4
months, your results will be more consistent. Increasing dosage
slightly may also lead to slightly longer duration, but is more costly
and can also lead to unintended side effects like Ptosis (drooping
eyelids)

Botox lasts 3-4 months in most patient. Sometimes it lasts a little shorter and sometimes a little longer.. There is nothing you can do to make it last longer except for maintaining your treatments.. Sometimes if you keep the treatments up at regular intervals the treatments do start to last longer. The trick is to make sure it doesn't totally go away before you re-treat. This doesn't work for everyone.

Dear Patient,
Botox lasts about 3-4 months. If you maintain it, it does help the affect to
last longer. With time you won't have to do it as often. As far as what you
can do perhaps try using skin firming creams and serums. Skin Medica has a
great line of products.

Kind Regards,
