Wondering whether BOTOX can give you the results you want and “how long does BOTOX last”? You’re not alone! Those are some of the most common questions we hear from people considering the treatment for the first time. It’s a sign of an educated patient to ask the right questions—and we’re here to provide the answers. But why stop at just getting information? Take our interactive quiz and find out if BOTOX could be your next step to a radiant, youthful look.
First, here’s some information about how BOTOX works and what to expect from treatment.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX smooths expression lines by blocking nerve signals to the muscles you use to make facial expressions. When those nerve signals are interrupted, wrinkles are softened and may become nearly invisible.
The BOTOX Experience: What To Expect
What Is a BOTOX Treatment Session Like?
A BOTOX treatment session typically takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Your injector will use a very fine needle and precise technique to inject small amounts of BOTOX into the targeted muscles. You may feel a slight pinch during the injections.
How Long Does BOTOX Take to Work?
You’ll begin to notice the effects of BOTOX within 3 to 7 days after treatment, with full results visible in 1 to 2 weeks.
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
The effects of BOTOX usually last between 3 to 4 months. Touch-up injections every 3 to 6 months can extend your results.
Is BOTOX Safe?
BOTOX has a long-standing safety record, but it’s essential to have the treatment administered by an experienced, qualified professional to ensure the best results.
