How Long Will Botox Last?

Are you interested in trying out Botox® & Dysport for yourself, but not sure how long your results may last?

We’ve got the scoop on what to expect from your Botox® results, including how long your Botox® results may last.


Average Duration of Botox® Results

Botox® results are designed to last between three to four months. You’ll be able to see your final Botox® results about one to two weeks after your injection.

If you’ve had Botox® done before, you may find that your results last a bit longer. That’s because Botox® can “build up” over time, meaning regular Botox® users may see their results last four to six months.

Botox® Maintenance Schedule

We recommend Botox® users schedule a maintenance appointment every four months to maintain their results. This may change over time to every six months, especially if your Botox® results start to last longer.

How to Extend Your Botox® Results

While Botox® can only last so long, there are certain steps you can take to make your results last a bit longer than the average three to four months’ duration. Here are a few tips to help you extend your Botox® results:

  • Don’t rub the injection site for the first week after treatment. This rubbing – even if it’s accidental – could cause the Botox® formula to spread to other areas, thereby diluting the effectiveness of your Botox® results.
  • Avoid intensive exercise for the first 48 hours after your treatment, as higher body temperatures could cause the Botox® formula to spread and dilute.
  • Stay hydrated, especially in the days after your Botox® treatment. Hydration can help ensure that you get optimal results from your Botox® injection.
  • Wear sunscreen to help maintain your smooth, wrinkle-free skin; sun damage can cause premature wrinkling, which will undermine your Botox® results.
*Individual results may vary.
