If you're considering getting Botox for the first time, you may be wondering how long the results will last. The answer is that it depends on a variety of factors, including your age, lifestyle, and the amount of Botox used. Generally speaking, you can expect your Botox treatment to last between three and six months. When you first get Botox, you'll start to see the effects within three to four months.
During this time, you'll experience all the benefits of your treatment. However, after two to five months, you'll start to notice the effects gradually fading away. On average, Botox treatments last three to six months. So why does Botox eventually stop working? It's because your body is constantly producing new neurotransmitters, which gradually reduce the “blocking” effect of Botox.
As these chemicals start to circulate back into your body, your muscles are no longer inhibited and the results start to wear off. It's also common for first-time users to find that their results don't last as long as they'd like. However, after a few treatments, they may find that their results last longer. Everyone's experience is different and results may vary.
There are also a few things you can do to make sure your Botox lasts as long as possible. For example, taking a zinc and phytase supplement called Zytase four days before your injections may help extend the results of your treatment. Additionally, using a topical retinoid cream in combination with Botox may decrease the amount of units needed per visit and potentially prolong the time between treatments.It's important to remember that Botox won't drastically change your face or make you look like an Instagram filter (unless you get too much). Generally speaking, treatments for forehead wrinkles will last up to three months and treatments for crow's feet will last at least four months.
If you're not happy with the results of your treatment, don't worry – they're only temporary and will wear off after a few months.If this is your first time getting Botox, it may take longer than usual for the provider to analyze your goals and determine if it's right for you. You may also need several treatments before your muscles condition and respond to botulinum toxin. In cases where too much Botox has been injected into a muscle, patients may experience a feeling of heaviness at the injection site.
