How long will my botulinum toxin results last?
Depending on your age, skin condition and habits, effects of botulinum toxin could last anywhere from three to six months. Most patients see the benefits for four months.
Qualified surgeons may be more cautious with your first injection to ensure they don’t inject too much, and you get the most natural results. You may need to schedule a follow-up appointment a few weeks after your initial injection if you are seeking more significant results. Your surgeon will re-evaluate your skin and provide a touch-up or additional treatments if needed.
While results are individual to each patient, botulinum toxin before and after photos can help you assess what a successful treatment will look like.
What do I need to consider after my botulinum toxin injection?
To achieve the most beautiful and safe outcome, it’s important you develop a good relationship with your aesthetic plastic surgeon. If you notice new wrinkles, frown lines, or forehead lines after three to six months, you can schedule additional botulinum toxin treatments to maintain your results. Do not hesitate to contact your surgeon when you have any questions or concerns.
