I am 24. My frown lines are very deep especially for my age. I had botox twice. I am not able to frown, however, I have not seen a difference in my frown lines. My dermatologist did not want to give me more than 20 units. Do I just need more Botox or another treatment? I have had the lines Since I was 22.
Botox Cosmetic Takes 3-10 days to see full results
Botox Cosmetic Often begins to work within 3-5 days. However, you may not see the full result until 10-14 days. If you are unable to frown but still have lines in that area, you may need fillers or kin resurfacing as well.

Frown lines and Botox
Botox usually takes about a week to work and then lasts for several months. The lines may take several treatments to efface. If they are really bad some filler can be injected (off-label) to help soften them.
Botox and filler for deep wrinkles
If you are not able to frown after your Botox injections and the lines are deep, you require filler to plump up the lines. Please visit an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon for your treatments.
Botox Not Working
In the event that botox does not provide sufficient correction to the frownlines, you may need to combine botox with juvederm or consider laser. Consult in person with 3 - 4 experienced and expert physician injectors/board certified plastic surgeons to review your options.
Botox and lines
Botox works b weakening the muscles so the skin will not fold as much. If you have wrinkles at rest when you are not flexing or using your forehead muscles, then Botox will never eliminate those lines. You might need Botox and in addition either fillers or a laser.
How long to see effects of Botox
Botox usually takes between 3 and 7 days to work, but may take up to two weeks in some people. If the frown lines are persisting after this time period you may want to consider adding filler to soften the depth of the frown lines.
How long does it take botox to work?
It generally takes 5-7 days to have botox to take its full effect. The muscle relaxation/paralysis (ie Botox effects) generally lasts for 3-5 months. Hope this helps.
Botox - how long does it take to work. Dynamic versus Static lines
Botox is a neurotoxin that takes anywhere from 1 - 7 days to take full effect, and certainly no more than 2 weeks. At 6 weeks, you should have the full effect and can consider adding more units if you are still able to frown. Remember that Botox, Xeomin and Dysport all work by paralyzing muscles. They affect dynamic lines - those that move with facial expression. Botox and other neurotoxins won't reverse furrow lines that are there whether you frown or not. These are static lines. Over time, they may soften, but it is difficult to treat static lines alone with neurotoxins. Other approaches may be to try a filler such as Restalyn or Juvederm in this area.
Botox takes 7-14 days to work completely
You typically see the results of Botox start to work in 3-5 days but the full effect is seen in 10-14 days. Botox is a purified protein that works by relaxing muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles in the skin. It will often take several treatments over several months to a year to relax the muscles and smooth out the lines completely.
Persistent frown lines
The ultimate result from a single treatment with Botox is generally seen 7 days after treatment. That said, there can be a cumulative benefit that is seen in more stubborn or persistent lines after subsequent treatment sessions. I advocate using pre- and post-treatment photos as an objective measure by which we can evaluate treatment success. If you are seeing any improvement, I encourage you to continue with your Botox treatments. On the other hand, if truly no improvement is noted, than using a combination of fractional resurfacing lasers (ablative and non-ablative) and well placed filler (off-label) can be very satisfying. Best of luck!
