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.
Multiple BOTOX Treatments
an excellent question about an issue that does cause some confusion. Some
patients may believe they will build up a resistance to the effects of BOTOX if
they get multiple treatments. This is a rare occurance. Actually, the results
of BOTOX injections tend to last longer for patients who have already had
several treatments. This is because the muscles that are temporarily
immobilized by BOTOX gradually become weaker. These are the muscles that create
crow's feet, vertical worry lines between the brows, and horizontal forehead
wrinkles. Getting BOTOX injections every 4 to 6 months is recommended for
How Often Can We Use Botox??
Botox usually lasts 3
to 6 months. As a general rule, I recommend patients get Botox
treatments every 4 months.
Botox is usually injected every 3 to 4 months
The effects of Botox generally last 3 to 4 months. The effectiveness of Botox will remain unchanged or may actually increase with time. Why?
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.
How often can you use Botox
Thank you for your question. If you like the results of Botox, you can continue to use the product for years and years. It lasts several months each time, and some patients notice the duration of action does increase with repeated use.
Botox - on average every 4 months
A Botox treatment can last for 3 to 6 months. The duration of the effect
varies from person to person and treatment frequency is dependent on personal
preference – does the patient like to come back the moment the results start to
wear off or do they prefer to wait until they go away completely?
As a general
rule, I recommend patients get Botox treatments every 4 months.
On average Botox treatments range from 4-6 months depending on your body's response to the product.
Most patients see improvement within several days of injection. The result will usually last about three to four months at which point the muscle action gradually returns and the lines and wrinkles or sweat begin to reappear. Over time, however, and with repeated injections, the lines and wrinkles will become less severe as the muscles are trained to relax.
Botox treatment schedule
Botox typically lasts for about 3-4 months. You might see results last longer if you've had many treatments performed before or if the area you have treated isn't moved a lot. On the other hand, it might not last as long if you use the area a lot. Therefore, you can schedule your treatments about every 4 months or so.
Botox is usually used every 3-4 months
Generally, Botox treatments are given every 3-4 months, although some long-term patients will report a difference for significantly longer. It is uncommon for a patient to find that the effect is diminished over time. Some of my patients do request additional Botox as time progresses, but this is generally to treat new areas or enhance the effect of previously treated areas.
Botox, Xeomin,or Dysport are all neuromodulators that act in very similar fashions. Depending on the area of treatment one can get injections every 3-4 months. With repeated treatments, Botox et al results tend to last longer, and less is needed. This occurs as the straining muscle that causes the wrinkles, when not used as often, decreases in size over time.
