Botox and how long it lasts

Botox and other neuromodulator injections lasts 3-4 months on average, regardless of the site of injection or amount injected.

Everyone is different so the overall range can be as short as 8 weeks to over 6 months. The good thing is that the duration is typically the same for different sites for each individual, so you can schedule your injections at regular intervals. 

I recommend seeing a trained injector who keeps careful records of your injections including the dates, location, and dose. Even with the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure, first or 20th injection, it's important to make safety a priority.

Botox - how long does it last

Thank you for asking about your Botox.

  • On average, Botox effects will last 3 months.
  • But it varies greatly - in some people effects last a year.
  • This is not from the amount used - but genetic variations in how long it lasts in different people.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Botox duration

Regardless of number of units used, the Botox that is injected is expected to last 3-4 months. If you are satisfied with the results of the 1-2 units, then it is reasonable that you may need reinjection in 10-12 weeks.
