How Long Does it Take Botox® to Work?

Botox® is by far the most recognized injectable treatment in the world. It has been around for decades, offering people the chance to reduce the effects of aging and feel more youthful. There is a lot of misinformation about Botox® that can scare people away from the treatment. Therefore, understanding more about these injections is essential. 

At Manhattan Aesthetics, we often get questions relating to Botox® injections and how they work. Most of the time, people are keen to understand how long it takes for the treatment to kick in and see results.

Botox® Overview

Before we discuss the effects of Botox® and how quickly they reveal themselves, let’s start by understanding what this injectable actually is. 

Botox® is a neurotoxin consisting of botulinum toxin, which is a specific toxin aimed at disrupting nerve signals in the body. When injected into wrinkles, it prevents muscle contractions and helps your facial muscles relax. In turn, this prevents you from making certain facial expressions that often fold up your skin and cause wrinkles. 

For example, many people have Botox® injected to prevent frowning, easing the appearance of forehead lines. Relaxing the muscles in your face can make you look younger and also prevent further wrinkles. 

How Long Until I See My Botox® Results?

Most people will start seeing small changes 24-48 hours after their injection. Gradually, the effects get even stronger, and you will see the full results in around 30 days. However, the results of Botox® can last for anywhere between 3-6 months before you need a follow-up appointment.

Benefits and Applications for Botox® Injections

Botox® injections will work and they will make you look younger. That’s the main benefit of this injectable; it is proven to work and produce long-lasting results. It’s also non-invasive and FDA-approved, meaning any side effects are either non-existent or extremely rare. 

As far as the applications for Botox® go, these injections are mainly used to treat the following:

  • Forehead lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines

In essence, it has used throughout the face. Some candidates will seek this treatment to get rid of any wrinkles or the problems mentioned above.
