How Long Do Botox Injections Last?

August 31st, 2017

Optimistic people say that aging brings you wisdom. Other say aging brings you wrinkles. However, all of them prefer to use Botox to make the signs of aging less visible.

Botox injections efficiently combat expression lines and wrinkles on your face, reduce the frown lines and crow’s feet, make the forehead skin smoother.

Like all good things, it does not last forever. In the particular case of Botox, it’s even a benefit, as you are always able to get rid of it if you didn’t like the results. And it is much more muscle-friendly than surgery.

According to the information indicated on the official Botox Cosmetic website, it takes from 24 to 28 hours to see the first results. On average, the effect from single treatment lasts up to 4 months. This is basically true. Botox longevity could vary from two to six months depending on a person’s lifestyle and other individual peculiarities.

How long do Botox injections last for different people?

Professional athletes and first-time users tend to get more short-term results.

Such benefit of sports as an increased metabolic activity is a bit counterproductive to Botox treatment if we see it through the prism of the effect duration. But it does not mean that Botox is useless for athletes, or you should give up sports career to get rid of wrinkles. You will still get a full-fledged impact, but it might last a bit less (for three months on average). You can describe your lifestyle on the initial consultation, and your Botox provider will offer you a modified treatment plan to achieve a long-term result.

All the above does not concern people with moderate physical activity. Moderate physical activity is natural and there is no conclusive evidence that it has an impact on the longevity of Botox treatment.

Repeated treatment could prolong the results

Sticking to a regular Botox treatment plan might give you such benefit as an increased longevity of a single treatment impact. The less active are the target muscles over an extended period of time, the fewer wrinkles they produce. Also, they might decrease in diameter thus causing a smaller impact on the skin surface.
