If the Botox was used in a more conservative manner, the clinical effect may wear off sooner. Therefore, 2 months may be an appropriate timeframe. Discuss with your injector.
Great question Anna!
While duration of Botox effect is usually related to dose, there are certain areas where we have to be careful not to inject too large a dose of Botox, such as around the mouth and forehead lines. Therefore, we might notice that the improvement in these areas is less than 3 months: we can certainly reinject based on clinical appearance.
Another alternative is to try another neurotoxin such as Dysport, which might sometime give a more prolonged duration in challenging areas such as the forehead.
Thank you for your question. Botox does typically last approximately 3-4 months, however, some patients do need treatment earlier than that time. It is ok to reinject at an earlier time if Botox has worn off. Sometimes to try Dysport for the patient to see if that lasts longer for the patient. Best of luck to you.
Botox can be reinjected or redone at any time. On occasion we see patients who get more movement than they want at about 2 months or they have wrinkle lines that reappear earlier than they want. We simply redo their Botox at that time. If this probelme happens agian we will sometimes try something different such as Dysport.
I hope that helps.
Botox lasts on average 3-4 months. I have patients who need it more frequently. Having it injected again after 2 months is ok. Personally, I have to inject my crow's feet every 2-3 months. Good luck!
Botox typically lasts 3-4 months. If you are noticing movement of your muscles at the 2 month mark, it is okay to be reinjected at that time.
Absolutely.. in fact you may want to try another toxins like Dysport or Xeomin to see if their effects would last longer.
- We treat a lot of patients with Botox!
- The majority of our patients note that their Botox effects last about three months.
- However, sometimes Botox effects only last 2 months or so.
- Once the effects of Botox have worn off, it is definitely fine to have a repeat injection.
Thank you for your
question. Yes, you can get a touch-up 1-2 months after having Botox injected.
Botox typically lasts between 3-6 months but it does vary for each individual.
Schedule a follow-up with a qualified physician to review your treatment areas.
Botox takes 10-14 days to see the final outcome. If you are unhappy after that time you need to get a touch up treatment by an expert. Botox usually lasts 3-4 months and can be touched up when the movement begins again (1-2 months sure!). Best, Dr. Emer.
