Multiple BOTOX Treatments
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.
How often can you use Botox and when does it begin to work?
You should expect to see results in three to four days, but in as few as two and as many as five days. On average patients return every three to six months for additional treatments. Good luck.

How Often Can You Use Botox
Botox wears off every 3-6 months. Some people like to wait for the Botox to completely wear off before getting new injections and others get new injections at the first sign there are wrinkles. Only a small percentage of people build a tolerance to Botox. If you think Botox is losing effectiveness for you ask your doctor for other alternatives.
Botox Can Be Used Indefinitely
Each individual will process Botox differently. Most people will need to have treatments every three to six months to maintain their good results. Although it is possible that you could develop a tolerance to this neuromodulator over time, this is rare. Repeated use of Botox usually has the opposite effect: It weakens the muscle over time so that it requires treatment less often. A consultation with a board-certified dermatologist will give you a better idea of how Botox can work for you.
Your body can, in fact, build up a tolerance to Botox. However, if this becomes the case with repeated use there are other options. Technology is also evolving to combat this problem. If you begin to feel that your Botox treatments are losing effectiveness, ask your doctor about other toxin alternatives that may be more resistant to tolerance.
How Often Can We Use Botox??
Botox is usually injected every 3 to 4 months
1. If the muscles are re-injected before the previous dose has completely worn off, the subsequent injection may actually be more effective.
2. Many patients who undergo Botox regularly will get out of the habit of overusing the injected muscles.
