I have a tendency to squint or have my eyes closed while pictures are being taken and a pretty gummy smile. In October, I had Botox injections around my eyes and right between my nose and upper lip. Long story short I like the way the eyes turned out but I can't smile now unless I completely force it. I'm worried that I won't be able to smile again because I've read here that Botox should wear off within 4 mos, this is my 3rd month. Are the effects of Botox ever permanent?

BOTOX PHOTOS: Botox is not permanent
I have never seen the effects of botox to be permanent. Anything is possible but this is highly unlikely and in most instances, its effects should be competely dissipated by 6 months.

Is Botox Permanent
No. No. No. When used in the face, results typically last 3-4 months and occasionally longer. I have not seen any published studies showing long-term results.
Botox always wears off
Botox always wears off. Different patients have different durations, but typically it wears off between 3 and 6 months. Be patient for a while longer.
Thank you for the question. You do not have anything to worry about because the effects of Botox are never permanent.
