One of the first signs of aging is the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. It happens to everyone. The most noticeable lines appear in the forehead, between the eyes, around the corners of the eyes, and around the mouth. These lines are caused by repetitive facial muscle movements, such as squinting, scowing, raising the eyebrows, smiling, and laughing. The very act of being an expressive person causes the eventual formation of expression lines. But don’t worry. We want you to live your best life, enjoying every surprise, smiling at every sweet sight, and even working those eyebrows to communicate without words. This is where the miracle of Botox comes in! Botox is specifically formulated to target the lines and wrinkles that are caused by repetitive facial muscle movements.
What Is Botox?
Botox was the first FDA approved product for improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a purified protein that works by reducing muscle contractions in the face. When this is done, the proper muscles are weakened to soften lines in the face.
Generally speaking, Botox is used in the upper face where muscles create lines from repeated movements in the forehead, between the eyes, and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
Botox temporarily freezes these muscles, allowing the area to relax and not to contract as much. This will cause the tissue around these muscles to become smoother and softer looking.

How Long Does Botox Last?
There are several major factors that determine how long Botox injections will last.
- The location of the injection
- The amount of Botox that is being injected.
- The wrinkle depth and the elasticity of your skin can
Generally speaking though, Botox treatments will last from 3-6 months with results appearing within 3 to 7 days after treatment. Patients are advised to schedule follow up treatments every six months or sooner if they feel that their results are fading too quickly. With repeated treatments, it is possible that you may need less Botox to achieve the results you desire.
The best way to determine how long Botox will last for you is to schedule an in-person consultation with a member of our staff. They will be able to examine your skin, the depth of your wrinkles, and consider the results you are looking for in order to create an individualized treatment plan that will best suit your needs.
