One of the most common questions asked by first-time Botox patients is, “How long does Botox last?” Many factors go into accurately determining how long your treatments will last, but we can help with some general guidelines!
The Number of Treatments You’ve Had
Often, first-time patients experience shorter-lasting results than those whose muscles have become accustomed to the product. First timers will often come in for follow-up treatments 2-3 months after their first injections for additional treatment, while those who have been receiving Botox over time can get results lasting up to 6 months.
The Area Treated
Depending on the injection site, your Botox treatments can have different periods of effectiveness. In muscles that are larger and used more often, such as the forehead, the Botox can metabolize faster, in about three months. On the other hand, in the crows feet area, where the muscles are smaller, you can see results for up to four-six months.
Botox can be diluted to different strengths, and the dilution and placement is imperative to give you the optimal result that you’re looking for. You should always seek out Board-Certified providers, such as the Dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Institute.
