Are you bothered by fine lines and wrinkles that make you look older than you really? If so, Botox can help you achieve the refreshed, youthful complexion you desire. It’s one of the most popular anti-aging treatments because it offers quick results without any anesthesia, needles, or downtime.

When patients come to our office to learn about Botox, they often wonder how long this injectable will last. Keep reading to find out the answer to this question.

Botox Results Are Temporary Yet Long-Lasting

While Botox isn’t a permanent solution to fine lines and wrinkles, it is long-lasting. While some patients enjoy beautiful results for six months, most men and women who receive Botox find that their results last between three to four months.

The strength of your facial muscles, depth of your wrinkles, and frequency of your injections will play a role in how long Botox will last. The area of injection may also dictate how long you enjoy anti-aging results.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox has been FDA-approved for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles since 2002. It works by using a neuromodulator known as botulinum toxin A to relax the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. The wrinkles that surround your forehead, eye, and lips and are caused by facial expressions and muscles are known as dynamic.

You can use wrinkles to improve the appearance of wrinkles in your forehead, crow’s feet, nose, jaw, chin, and neck. Our expert providers can design a customized Botox treatment plan that targets your unique concerns and aesthetic goals.

Good Candidates for Botox

While Botox isn’t for everyone, many men and women could benefit from it. If you are least 18 years of age, in good general health, and looking for a way to prevent or resolve dynamic wrinkles, you may benefit from Botox. We do not recommend Botox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a serious medical condition, or are allergic to any ingredient in Botox.
