Are you interested in minimizing wrinkles and fine lines with Botox, but not sure how long your results may last?
Read on to discover how long your Botox results should last, including what you can do to prolong those results.
Average Duration of Botox Results
Botox results typically last about three to four months, making it a great short-term solution for symptoms like:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
Botox injections usually take about 15 minutes to administer, and require almost no downtime. In fact, most clients are able to go right back to their normal routine immediately after their Botox appointments.
Botox Results for Regular Users
If you receive Botox on a regular basis, you may feel like your results last a little longer than three months. You’re right – clinical trials have shown that people who regularly receive Botox injections have experienced results that last for up to six months.
How to Prolong Your Botox Results
Whether it’s your first time getting Botox or your fifteenth, here are a few steps you can take to prolong the duration of your Botox results:
- Avoid strenuous exercise or activity during the first 24 to 48 hours after your Botox results. Excessive body heat can cause the Botox formula to spread, which may affect your final results.
- Avoid rubbing your face during those first few days after your injection, as this can also cause the Botox formula to spread.
