How long does it take for BOTOX to take effect?

BOTOX works by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters, a naturally occurring protein that is released from our nerves and activates our muscles. Individuals have differing amounts of neurotransmitter receptors in their muscles, so each person will see a slightly quicker or slower response to BOTOX.

Most patients will respond within 72 hours of a treatment, but it can take up to a week for the effects to be noticeable. Typically, the best response is reached around 10 days after administration and last about 3 months, but it can last up to four months.

How long does BOTOX last?

The effects of BOTOX can last anywhere from 2 to 6 months, but, for most people, it lasts about 90 days. With regular use (3 to 4 times per year), the injected muscles will eventually thin or atrophy, making the treatments last several weeks longer.

The way in which the BOTOX is mixed can also affect the longevity of the treatment. If the product is diluted too much, it may not be effective. I like to mix the BOTOX with only a small amount of saline, so I can place the concentrated mixture exactly where I want it. This also reduces the possibility of it migrating to unwanted areas.

The effectiveness and longevity of the treatment is also affected by the way in which the product is handled and stored. Once mixed, BOTOX must be handled with care; if the mixture is agitated, it will not work as well. It is also best to keep it refrigerated.

Ever wonder why BOTOX® doesn't work for some?

Resistance to BOTOX is extremely rare. The most common reason why the product fails is the technique of the individual injecting it. If the BOTOX is not placed into the muscle or the if the proper amount is not used – it won’t work well. Also, a good understanding of the patient is essential for good results.

Another reason why people might feel that BOTOX did not work for them is a misunderstanding of what the product can do. Some patients are under the impression that BOTOX can treat all lines and wrinkles. In fact, BOTOX is best for treating wrinkles that form when you move the muscle, i.e. when you frown, raise your eyebrows or smile. Wrinkles present at rest may improve after several years of using BOTOX every three months, but they will not go away immediately.

For wrinkles that are present at rest, other adjunctive therapies like lasers and wrinkle fillers are more appropriate.
