How long do Botox injections last?

There are vloggers saying that Botox lasts longer for them because they had it done multiple times. Does the result persist substantially longer once you start getting shots every 3 to 6 months?

Great question. Ranges are dose dependent and metabolically dependent. Average between 3 to 8 months.

Thank you for your inquiry. Botox typically lasts 3 - 4 months. Once you start maintaining your results, your muscles will be more relaxed even as the product fades away. You will be so used to not frowning that you will notice your results last longer. Great treatment if done by an experienced professional.

3 to 5 months is about average.

There may be some truth to that as the repeated treatment of the muscles may have a long term weakening effect thereby improving the overall length of treatment effect. Good Luck!

Hi Pamela,

Botox commonly lasts about 3-4 months. There are other products on the market like Dysport and Xeomin which are the same as Botox but made from different companies. I have heard from my patients that they like Dysport better because the onset is quicker and it seems to last longer. All products are great and can have amazing results.

Good Luck!
