Botox Safety And Duration

Botox is safe and FDA-approved. Depending on the severity of your wrinkles and the amount of Botox injected, it may or may not reduce ALL facial wrinkles.

How Safe Is Botox

Botox usually lasts 12-14 weeks. Some patients may get results longer. It is very safe if used correctly. However, there are risks and side effects your doctor should inform you of prior to injecting. Generally, the side effects are rare and the majority of patients are very happy with their results. (Amy Klein, DO, Gainesville OB-GYN)

Botox for cosmetic purposes is very safe. I do advise that you only allow an experienced physician to inject your Botox, though, because adverse events can occur in the hands of inexperienced or poorly trained injectors.

The first time people get Botox, it usually lasts about 3 months. If you go back for another treatment when you notice it wearing off, but before it completely wears off, it will last a bit longer each time.

Injection Of Botulinum Toxin Type A

By the 3rd or 4th time you receive it, you will find that it lasts 4 – 4 1/2 months. I do tell my patients that this is an average – some people get 5 or 6 months from their Botox and others need to be injected every three months.

Botox cannot be used on all facial wrinkles. We usually use it to reduce the appearance of lines in between the eyebrows (glabella), across the forehead, around the corners of the eyes and around the lips.

If you have lines that are visible at rest in these areas, they should be improved the first time you get Botox, but probably won’t go completely away until you are injected 3-4 times.

When done properly, Botox will help you look more relaxed and awake, but not frozen or “fake”.

If you have lines in other areas, you may be a candidate for a filler. I suggest getting a consultation with an experienced injector. (Lisa Jenks, MD, Colorado Springs Physician)

Make sure you consult with an experienced injector in your area and discuss the areas that bother you the most. (Chad Robbins, MD, Nashville Plastic Surgeon)

Preparing For Botox Is Actually Very Critical To Doing It Safely

Botox is a neuromodulator – it reduces facial expression lines by temporarily reducing muscle movement that repeatedly creases the skin. The most common treatment areas include the glabella (the area between the eyebrows), the forehead, and the crow’s feet.

Botox has been approved for cosmetic use in the US for over 15 years, and has been shown to the safe overall – the most common side effect is localized redness and bruising. The effects typically last 3-4 months.

Botox will not be effective at treating all facial wrinkles – it only helps reduce lines that are present with facial expressions.

Deeper lines and wrinkles that are present at rest often require a combination approach that can include dermal fillers (like Juvederm and Voluma), laser skin resurfacing, and possibly even surgery.

I would recommend scheduling a consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns. (Faiyaaz Kalimullah, MD, FAAD, Chicago Dermatologic Surgeon)
