How Often Do I Need to Get BOTOX?
Aging is unavoidable. You may be able to slow down its effects with exercise, a healthy diet, sun protection, and hydration, but at some point, your skill will begin to lose its elasticity. If the lines around your eyes and forehead are starting to bother you when you look in the mirror, you might be ready to consider BOTOX.
The treatment is a safe, non-surgical facial rejuvenation solution to smooth out your wrinkles for a renewed look, taking years off your appearance.
BOTOX works differently than fillers. The key here is to disrupt the communication between your facial muscles and nerve endings. The most significant difference between BOTOX and dermal fillers is that BOTOX targets the muscles in the face, and dermal fillers replace lost volume.
- Deep facial lines and wrinkles caused by expressions
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- “Crow’s feet,” or wrinkles around the eyes
- Horizontal creases across the forehead
Once you see the benefits of BOTOX, you may wonder how many times will I need to return for treatment?
BOTOX is a temporary solution. While it is an effective treatment for rejuvenating your once youthful look, the effects don’t last forever. Blocked signals from the nerves to the muscles will begin to speak to each other again, and your wrinkles and lines will return.
You are unique, and your treatment plan will be too.
There is not a one-size-fits-all answer for how much BOTOX or how many treatments you will need. Your BOTOX treatment plan is entirely personalized to match your personal goals. You and your doctor will work together to determine how many treatments will be required to get the look you desire and to maintain that look.
Considerations when determining how much BOTOX is needed:
- Patient’s goals
- Strength of muscles
- Face shape
BOTOX injections offer immediate improvements to your appearance, and the effects can last from four to six months, depending on the depth and severity of the wrinkles, and your own physiology. But when you start to see the reappearance of those lines, it is usually an excellent time to arrange your next appointment.
Long term plan
You may start to notice that over time with regular BOTOX injections, the muscles on your face will begin to train themselves, staying relaxed for longer. This factor can extend the length of time between BOTOX treatments.
