How long do the effects of Botox last?

Botox is one of the most popular non-invasive procedures due to its effectiveness in reducing expression wrinkles. Its aesthetic use is indicated for the muscles of the upper third of the face (forehead, between the eyebrows and crow’s feet). Botulinum toxin interposes between nerve endings and the muscle, preventing its contraction. This lock is selective and reversible, making its application very secure. The effect begins to be noticeable after 4 or 5 days, and reaches its maximum 12-15 days after treatment, so a sudden change is not appreciated. Afterwards, there is a period of about six to eight weeks in which the results are maintained. Most patients notice from this moment a slow but progressive recovery of contractility in the treated areas.

This does not mean that the effect of Botox has been completely lost. It means that the nerve transmission to the muscle is regenerating. This process is completed after 4-6 months. The intervals between treatments should not be less than three months. It has been shown that the application of Botox with an interval shorter than the recommended one increases the possibility of the body forming antibodies against this substance, reducing or canceling its effect in subsequent uses.

Clinical practice, supported by different studies, shows that the use of Botox for one or more years prolongs the duration of the results. Initially, its use may be indicated every 4 or 5 months, but the usual practice, starting from the second year, is to apply it every 6 months.

There are different factors that influence the duration of Botox effects. The most important is associated with the differences in facial muscles between some patients and others. The type of facial mimicry, age or sex are aspects to take into account. All of this means that there is an increasing tendency towards individualized treatments both in dose and in place of application of the toxin.
