BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most commonly used injectable treatments for the reduction of fine lines and facial wrinkles in the forehead region. It works by paralyzing the muscles in the area, reducing the muscle contractions that lead to the formation of wrinkles.
In most cases, BOTOX® Cosmetic will last approximately four months. However, the exact duration of your results will vary based on several factors such as amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic used for your treatment and the strength of your muscles. In general, the more units of BOTOX® Cosmetic injected into the region, the longer the results will last. Also, if you have very strong facial muscles, they may be more resistant to the paralyzing function of the procedure. As a result, you may need to use more BOTOX® Cosmetic to achieve the same duration of results.
Based on the factors mentioned above, it is possible for your results to wear off slightly earlier than this four month estimate. Similarly, it is also possible for your results to last as long as six or eight months. In order to maintain your wrinkle-free appearance longer than this time period, you will need to return to our Littleton RN injectors for a follow-up treatment.
When trying to determine the right time to have your next BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure, it is best to simply look in the mirror. As your facial muscles begin to move again, you may gradually see the fine lines in your forehead region return. Once this occurs, you may want to call Facial Aesthetics to schedule your next appointment.
