Length of BOTOX® Cosmetic Results

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the world. Safe, simple, and effective, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can address myriad signs of aging and help restore a smooth, wrinkle-free complexion.

Unlike facial plastic surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic does not require downtime or long, involved procedures. However, because BOTOX® Cosmetic is a nonsurgical option, it is incapable of offering the long-lasting outcome of more invasive techniques and will require continuing treatments to maintain optimal results.

How Long Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Last?

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections typically produce a youthful appearance for three to four months. This time can be shortened or lengthened depending on factors including:

Your age
Your diet
Your smoking habits
The care you take for your skin
Your facial structure

Fortunately, restoring your BOTOX® Cosmetic results is as easy as returning to our Alexandria office for additional treatment.
There is no limit to how often you can receive BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and, should you choose to discontinue them, your skin will simply return to its natural state. Dr. Desman will work closely with you to help you determine how frequently you may require injections and to discuss alternatives if you desire a longer-lasting solution.
