How Long Does It Take For Botox Injections
To Work?
By LAUREN GREEN
Botox is a neurotoxin injection that lifts and treats wrinkles by temporarily preventing muscles from moving. Botox can act as a facelift, help with migraines, and more, so if you plan on getting Botox, this is how long it will take until you notice some differences.
Dr. Oscar Trujillo says patients can see their results in as little as three days, with the maximum results coming in about 10 days. Several factors can affect how quickly you see results, like the area being treated, the dosage size, and muscle thickness, and you should be aware that no Botox procedure has immediate results.
If you’re new to Botox, the doctor will start with a lower dosage to see how your body responds, so it may take a few visits until you reach your maximum results. To get the most out of your injections, avoid alcohol and aspirin a few days before and after your visit, and it’s best to not touch or massage your treated area — just be patient and let Botox do its job.
