If you are looking into getting Botox® for the first time, there’s a good chance you have many questions about the procedure and the kind of results you can expect to see. The more you understand about the treatment and how it works, the better equipped you will be to accomplish your beauty goals. Every patient is unique in how they respond to Botox®, but below is an explanation of typical results.
In general, Botox® can be expected to start working within a couple days. However, the most significant results can take up to 10 to 12 days to become visible. Eventually, the treatment will wear off and the skin will return to its normal structure.
Botox® is not permanent, and the length of time that a treatment lasts usually depends on how deep the wrinkles are and the dosage given. When used for wrinkles that aren’t too severe, the effects of the injection can last anywhere from three to six months.
Several factors contribute to how well Botox® works on each individual patient. These include age, facial structure, nutrition, sun exposure, and how well the skin is taken care of. Repeated use will also affect how well the treatment ends up working.
There are rare circumstances when Botox® is not a viable treatment for some people. This may be the case if a patient’s immune system has developed antibodies to the Botox® solution. This can happen the more a person undergoes the procedure or when high quantities are administered.
When done correctly by an experienced doctor, Botox® provides patients with a natural-looking solution for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Contact the Skin and Vein Center to set up your consultation with Michigan’s most successful Botox® doctor.
