Repeat Botox every 3 to 6 months.
Botox usually lasts 3 to 6 months. Some people like to wait for the Botox to completely wear off and other people think it is an emergency at the first site of any wrinkles. Repeat injections will not cause any harm or loss of future effect. There is a very small percentage (1:10,000) that can become resistant to Botox, but there are so few people with this effect that the cause and relationship has not been fully studied. If this does happy, however, there are other forms of Botulinum toxin that can be used.
I hope this is helpful.
Botox Lasts Usually 3-4 Months
The duration of the response to botox varies from patient to patient and depends on a variety of factors. In the majority of patients botox lasts for 3 to 4 months, but in some cases may last only two months while in other cases may last up to eight months. Although resistance to botox can occasionally occur, this phenomenon is extremely rare.
These variations occur for several reasons. In some cases facial muscles maybe unusually strong or large and for this reason botox wears off quickly. There may also be variations in the patient’s aesthetic goals. Some patients may want a stronger effect from botox with obliteration of all facial lines of expression even during facial animation. While others may still want a more expressive face during facial animation. These aesthetic goals can affect how much botox is utilized and it's duration of action. For these reasons it's important to make sure your aesthetic goals are understood by your practitioner.

A very small percentage of patients respond partially to Botox and the effect wears off earlier than normal.
This is due to the development of antibodies by the patient to Botox.
How often can you continue to use Botox?
Botox, Xeomin,or Dysport are all neuromodulators that act in very similar fashions. Depending on the area of treatment one can get injections every two to three months. There are some rare individuals who develop an immunity where injections would be needed more frequently. In my practice, I typically see individuals every 3 months and sometimes in between if the area being treated only calls for very low concentrations, such as in and around the mouth or for the treatment of platysmal bands.
Botox frequency can be every three to six months depending on the area
How Often Can We Use Botox
Botox can be injected every 3- 4 months. Some patients have their treatment at 2 months to avoid any diminution of effect. It does not cause harm and the likelihood of resistance is small.
Botox treatments tend to be spaced 3 - 4 months apart. Some patients will do it as frequently as every 2 months or as needed if it is to be used for migraine headaches. Some patients like to wait longer and do it every 6 months (generally in conjunction with their dermal filler treatments).
Botox and/or Dysport can be used in conservative amounts as often as every 2-4 months
Botox and/or Dysport can be used in conservative amounts as often as every 2-4 months. However, when placed in the correct location and in an appropriate dosage, repeat Botox or Dysport treatment is usually only required every 3-6 months when used for elimination or improvement of facial wrinkles. When used for hyperhidrosis (excessive perspiration), Botox may last as long as 12-18 months with each treatment. Initial effectiveness in the treatment of hyperhidrosis is usually in the 4-6 month range, with results lasting longer and longer with consistent successive treatments.
