First, answer this for us…which one are you: A or B?
- You’re thinking about getting Botox in Denver and you’re wondering how long you’ll get to revel in your results.
- You’ve just received your Botox treatment, are obsessed with your results, and your burning question is: how long will they stick around?
Both are exciting. On one hand, you’re a newbie trying to figure out if BOTOX® Cosmetic is for you. And on the other, you’ve jumped in with two feet and love your smoother, more refreshed appearance thanks to Botox (and your injector, of course!).
Make The Most Out of Your Botox Experience
There’s so much that plays into a great Botox experience, but let’s first answer one of the most frequently asked questions we get: how long does Botox last?
We wish it could be: “Botox results last forever” but, unfortunately, that’s not the truth. Technically it can be with repeat treatments, but let’s talk about one treatment at a time. The truth is that Botox results usually last 3-4 months.
What we call the real Botox honeymoon phase, however, is 2.5-3.5 months. Why? Full onset of Botox is visible at 10-14 days after treatment, so from those two weeks to the next couple of months, your Botox treatment is at full effect. Then, your Botox will start to wear off slowly since it is temporary. By that fourth month, you can usually count on seeing some movement return.
The Need To Know About Botox
Here’s an interesting fact about Botox: it metabolizes. Your body will gradually metabolize the ingredients in this injectable by about 3-4 months if you’re an average metabolizer. If your metabolism is faster than most, you’ll see it wear off quicker; and if it’s slower, you’ll see your Botox results stick around a little longer. Every one of our patients is unique. And because of that, their Botox treatment plan should be, too.
After your first Botox treatment, you’ll see firsthand how long it takes for your Botox to wear off. When you start to notice this, you’ll know it’s time for another treatment. At Facial Aesthetics, we always like to check in with our patients. We do this because it’s important not to allow your Botox to wear off completely. We like to build off the last treatment result and not have to reteach the muscle, because the muscles will start contracting again causing progression of the line or wrinkle – it’s what they do! It’s important to keep up your appointment schedule to maintain your results. This is the only way you can have your beautiful Botox treatments last forever. Before you leave the office, book your next treatment so you’ll never have to say goodbye to those gorgeous results.
After 30 years of injecting in Colorado and being named to the top 1% of Botox injectors in the nation by Allergan (makers of Botox), we’ve performed hundreds of thousands of Botox treatments. One would say we’ve seen it all when it comes to injectables, specifically Botox. Some patients come in for their Botox treatment every 2.5 months, the majority between 3-4 months, and some are 2-3 times a year.
Our Denver Botox injectors are the best at their craft, injecting Botox all day, every day to ensure your Botox experience is the best. They will discuss the best treatment plan based on a thorough assessment of your facial anatomy.
