By now, most everyone is familiar with Botox, the anti-aging injection that smooths fine lines and wrinkles from your face. But if you’re considering having it done, you may have other questions: How long do the effects last? Is there anything I can do to help it last? Where’s the best place to get it done?
How long do the effects last?
Typically, the results of an Orlando Botox treatment will be immediate, and last between 3 to 4 months. At that time, if you’re pleased with the effects and would like to continue them, it’s best to get additional injections in a timely manner. If your Botox treatments are consistent and long-term, over time they could last as long as 12 months.
Is there anything I can do to help it last?
Aside from being consistent in your Botox regiment, there isn’t much you can do. Your genetics and body composition, factors that you can’t change, have an effect on how long the treatments last: some people’s bodies, for example, will naturally remove the Botox from their system faster than others.
Where’s the best place to get it done?
Though it’s not an entirely invasive procedure, Botox injections are not to be taken lightly. “Botox parties” used to be all the rage, but it’s not recommended to get a medical procedure done in the middle of a social gathering. You’ll want the right dosage of Botox administered in the safety and solitude of a doctor’s office, by an experienced, Board-certified physician. It’s the only way to ensure the best Botox treatment plan and the desired results for your cosmetic needs.
