If you’re bothered by frown lines on your forehead or lines at the corner of your eyes, botox is a great choice for battling these wrinkles. But since botox is a temporary solution you may be wondering – How often do I need to get botox.
How often do you need to get botox?
The answer to this question won’t be the same for everyone, because the effects of botox vary among patients. Botox is a temporary injectable treatment that typically lasts 3-4 months, but it may wear off more quickly for some patients than others.
Botox works by temporarily blocking the signals sent from the nerves to the muscles, so when the effects wear off, the signals will start going through again. Some patients notice that after multiple botox treatments the effects last longer, and they are able to go longer in between appointments.
How often you need to get botox will depend on your long term anti-aging strategy, and cosmetic needs. If you want to maintain smooth, youthful skin all the time, you will have to make your own schedule and get a repeat botox treatment before the effects completely wear off.
Also, in order to maximize the results of botox, it’s essential to choose a skilled, experienced injector that uses the proper injection technique, as well as the correct dosage. It’s advisable to go to a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist that does a high volume of botox injections.
