How Long Does It Take Botox® to Work?

One of the downsides to the aging process is that some people end up with lots of wrinkles, forehead lines, and fine lines. For others, those downsides can be down to other factors like genetics, overexposure to the sun, and a regular smoking habit.

While many creams and other topical solutions claim to address such cosmetic concerns, they seldom offer any tangible results in practice. It’s possible to have cosmetic surgery to eradicate those issues.

However, if you want a non-surgical option that works, the best cosmetic treatment available to tackle wrinkles and lines is Botox®. At Physician Skin Solutions, Dr. Shannon Maltais and her expert team offer Botox® treatments in Glendale, AZ.

Learn more about Botox® below and find out how long it takes to work its magic.

What Is Botox®?

Botox® is an injectable cosmetic solution that smooths and softens facial expression lines between the brows, on the forehead, on the sides of the eyes, and around the mouth.

The treatment contains onabotulinumtoxinA and works by temporarily immobilizing the facial muscles at the injection sites. Each injection site gets carefully selected to offer good results while maintaining a natural facial appearance.

How Long Does Botox® Take to Work?

Botox® is one of the world’s top cosmetic treatments, and while you might see celebrities having Botox® injections, millions of ordinary Americans also opt for Botox® each year.

One of the reasons for its popularity is due to the time it takes to work. On average, you can expect Botox® to begin working in just three to four days after the treatment session.

How Long Will Botox® Last?

Although Botox® treatments aren’t permanent, they do last for three to four months on average. If you want to maintain the positive changes that Botox® makes to your facial features, it makes sense to have top-up treatment sessions. Dr. Maltais will discuss your cosmetic concerns and create a tailored schedule plan that will work best for your needs.
