Botox® is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, and for a good reason. If you’re looking for a convenient but effective anti-aging solution, Botox® might be the answer. But how long do results last, and how often will you need to get injections?
Botox® is the brand name of a neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin. Though there are several neuromodulators made with this neurotoxin, such as Xeomin® and Dysport®, Botox® is the oldest and most well-known.
Neuromodulators like Botox® are used to treat dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. The botulinum toxin in these injectables blocks signals between nerves and muscles, temporarily relaxing the targeted facial muscles. This prevents the repetitive movements that cause dynamic wrinkles and helps smooth them out for a rejuvenated appearance.

Botox® offers fast results after a single convenient treatment. You’ll see reduced lines and wrinkles within a few days for a smoother, younger appearance. These results typically last three to six months.
Everyone’s body is different, so Botox® lasts longer for some people than others. For some, their results gradually improve with subsequent treatments. You can get maintenance injections every few months as needed. Typically, patients should expect to need two to four Botox® treatments a year for optimal results.
One of the things that make Botox® so popular is its convenience. We’ll apply a topical numbing cream for your comfort, and once this has taken effect, the injection process only takes 15 minutes. You can expect your entire appointment to take less than an hour.

You won’t need to take any downtime after Botox®. After the simple lunch break procedure, you can return to your regular activities immediately, though some patients experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection site. This should only last a day or two.
To prevent Botox® from spreading and affecting your outcome, it’s best to avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours. Don’t rub your face, apply pressure to the treatment area, or lie down for a few hours after your appointment.
Botox® injections are an ideal anti-aging treatment for many patients. Botox® can also benefit younger patients as a preventative measure to stop dynamic wrinkles from forming. If you want to reduce or prevent fine lines and wrinkles with safe, convenient treatment, you may be a good candidate for Botox®.
