How Long Does Botox Last

How Long Do the Injections Last?

Once you go in to get a Botox injection and enjoy the look that it provides, you want to know how long does Botox last. Everyone is different and much of it has to do with how animated you are when you speak. Some people are more prone to deeper lines and wrinkles because of how the muscles in the face move.

Generally, you can expect Botox to last four to six months. The muscle will gradually return to the way it was and that’s when the lines and wrinkles will begin to reappear. The good news is that when you go for injections on a regular basis, the results are going to start lasting longer. This is because the muscles are being trained to relax with greater frequency.

When more units are used in an area, it can have a longer lasting effect. It is important to note that it doesn’t have to do with the volume but of the number of units. When the muscles are injected with regularity, you may notice that what used to require maintenance every four months is now lasting six months – or even longer.

There is no sure way to know how long Botox is going to last for you because it varies from patient to patient. Most doctors, to be safe, say that the effects will last between three and six months. Much of it is going to depend on how strong your muscles are and whether you have deep-set lines or not. The best thing to do is schedule a consultation where a doctor can provide you with a better answer based upon results seen out of the office as well as a quick inspection of what is going on with you and the wrinkles that you would like to eliminate.

    Botox lasts me for a long time. I treat my cheeks, those lines around the mouth, the area on my forehead where my eyebrows meet, and that’s all. I can’t even say that I go that often, it lasts me for a long time. I don’t know how many vials my doctor uses, or whether it’s a higher dosage of the chemicals, but I believe it’s something standard. It lasts me for months and months. Now, if it doesn’t I believe you should change your doctor.

    For real? It lasted for 9 months in my case. To me, that’s not enough, I believe for the money that you pay, and it’s not just pennies, you should get more permanent results. Nine months flies by, and it doesn’t just deflate like in one month. Gradually you start seeing these changes, much more early, but the complete disaster struck me only at nine months, when I was back to my previous look. It’s depressing.
