Thank you for your question danieloportuga. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. Most people enjoy the results of their Botox treatment for 3-4 months. At that time a maintenance treatment is recommended. 

Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Your botox should wear off in 3-4 months. If you feel that you want more muscle movement, you request your injector to use less units and your next treatment.

It takes 3-4 months for the botox to wear off.

Hello and thank you for your question.

Typically Botox wears off in about 3-4 months and you should see a gradual return of muscle activity in the treated area. How long the product lasts will depend on the individual's muscle tone, area treated, and number of units used. Discuss your concerns with your injector prior to the next treatment for a less paralyzed result.

Hope this helps

Botox classically lasts about 3-4 months. You will notice the Botox wearing off at about 3 months so any negative effects that you don't like will reverse themselves. Be sure to communicate this with your doctor to prevent redoing this in future.

Botox typically "wears off" in 3-4 months. Talk to you injector and explain your concerns. This may help guide them in your next session.

Botox and duration

Botox is a medication injected into target muscles to selectively weaken them for fewer/softer wrinkles.

This medication typically lasts 3 months. The muscles will return to their normal function and you can start agin. This is a nice safety feature of neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.  Safety comes first.
