Duration of muscle weakness post Botox treatment
Thank you for your question.
The effect of Botox injections typically last between 3-4 months depending on the dose and injecting technique used. It is not uncommon for the neck and shoulder areas to feel "weak" typically for up to 14 days post Botox treatment. Please note the use of Botox injections to the cervical and shoulder areas are "off- label" and so should only be performed by experienced and highly trained practitioners in this treatment.
