When it comes to Botox, you can expect to see results within three to four months. After your first treatment, the effects of Botox will last between two and six months. On average, the results of Botox last three to four months. The reason why Botox eventually stops working is because your body produces new neurotransmitters all the time, which gradually reduce the “blocking” effect of Botox.
Muscles are no longer inhibited and the effects of Botox will start to wear off. For cosmetic purposes, Botox usually lasts 3-6 months. However, for medical purposes, such as treating migraines or reducing neck spasms, it tends to work for a shorter period of time, usually lasting two to three months. There are also other short- and long-term techniques to increase the longevity of your Botox treatments.
With continued use of Botox, you can expect the maximum results of your treatment to extend from three to four months to the full six months. Some research indicates that multiple injections of botox in the same area may increase the duration of the effects. Additionally, taking a cycle of Zytase before a Botox injection can prolong the longevity of treatments by up to 30%. When injecting Botox into the frontal muscle to remove wrinkles, it should be done with caution as it can cause the eyebrows to end up in a very low position if injected too low into the forehead.
Overall, you can expect your first Botox injection to last between two and six months. However, there are several techniques that can help increase its longevity.
