Botox usually takes around one week to take effect. If you do not see a result by 4 weeks, I would recommend contacting your provider. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Botox usually takes 7-10 days to fully see result from your treatment. If you're not seeing any difference, contact your medical provider to further assist with this issue

There are no before and after pictures to assess. I'm not certain what is meant by "no results". I suggest finding a reputable and skilled physician who uses legitimate FDA approved neuromodulator such as Botox or Dysport with appropriate dilution for treatment. You should be able to see improvement within 3 days of treatment.

How long to wait before seeing Botox result?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

It normally does take a few days for the effect of Botox to take place after it is injected.  I would say that by a week or so, you should be able to see some result, so if you haven't seen anything by 4 weeks, I would recommend contacting your injector to be evaluated.
