It’s happened. You’ve decided it’s time to try Botox. Whether you’re tired of those facial lines and wrinkles, have chronic migraines that medications have failed to address, or you just can’t take another day of sweating through your Armani suits, Botox can help. We know you’ve done your research about Botox safety, efficacy, and costs; but how long does Botox last once it’s been administered? This is an important question when considering an investment in any treatment. You need to know how far your investment will take you and how soon you’ll need to come back to maintain your results.

The truth is that Botox results and longevity vary from person to person. Furthermore, your results and how long they last are dependent upon the reason for treatment and where your Botox injections are administered.

How Long Does Botox Last? It Depends.

A Botox treatment is designed to be unique. Dosage amounts depend on your needs; this includes the treatment area and the reason for having Botox administered. Your metabolism also comes into play. Finally, no prescription medication of any kind is a one-size-fits-all approach. The good news is that the more often you get Botox, the less you’ll likely need during repeat treatments to maintain your results.

Now that we’ve explained what goes into Botox longevity, let’s dig into the average Botox lifespans patients like you can expect to see based on clinical research and over 30 years on the market.

How Long Does Botox Last for Facial Anti-Aging & Rejuvenation?

how long does botox last

When you hear Botox, you likely think of Botox Cosmetic. While Botox has been around since the 1980s, it didn’t become a household name until it was released as a facial anti-aging treatment. Are you interested in Botox for treating those pesky lines and wrinkles? You can expect your results to last between 3-4 months, depending on your treatment area and metabolism.

How Long Does Botox Last for Migraine Relief?

If prescription migraine relief leaves you anything but relieved, Botox can help as it’s FDA-approved for migraines. Once the medication kicks in, results should last 3-4 months.

How Long Does Botox Last for Reduction of Hyperhidrosis Symptoms?

Hyperhidrosis is the official name for excessive sweating. A patient with hyperhidrosis can sweat through a shirt without exerting themselves. It’s an embarrassing condition, especially in the workplace. If this is you, and you’ve tried prescription antiperspirants without success, it might be time for Botox. Botox is a minimally invasive treatment option for hyperhidrosis. A single treatment should last 4-6 months.

What If My Botox Doesn’t Last as Long as It Should?

If your Botox treatment does not last as long as expected, you may simply need a larger dose at your next treatment. Keep in mind that everyone metabolizes drugs differently. Speak to one of our medical aesthetic specialist about your concerns. It may be that you need a higher dosage of Botox, or you may be better off with a popular FDA-approved Botox alternative known as Dysport. The trick is to keep your follow-up appointments, schedule your touch-up treatments in advance, and stay in contact with our providers if you have any questions or concerns.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
