It takes approximately 2 weeks to gain the maximum effect from Botox. It can last on average between 3-6 months. If you have Botox regularly you will find that you don’t have to top up as often as it lasts longer.
Botox is used to give the face a more relaxed and pleasant appearance. It works by temporarily paralysing the underlying muscles responsible for wrinkles. The wrinkles become smoother or disappear altogether. The maximum effect is reached in about 1-2 weeks and the treatment can last between 3-6 months.
Hyperactivity of the facial expression muscles often results in the development of deep frown lines, forehead lines and/or crow’s feet. Injecting Botox into the affected area temporarily relaxes the underlying muscles responsible for wrinkling, giving the face a more relaxed and pleasant appearance. The wrinkles become smoother or disappear altogether.
The initial effects of treatment become visible within 48 to 72 hours. The maximum effect is reached in about 1 to 2 weeks.
Your facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask-like. The overall result is very natural. The effect of treatment generally lasts for about three to four months. And NO! it doesn’t hurt!
