How Long Does It Take Botox® to Work?

Are you considering getting Botox® done?

Whether you want to smooth away the appearance of fine lines or you have stubborn crow’s feet, there’s no denying you’re excited by the idea of a more youthful, line-free face.

But when exactly can you expect those results to appear? How long does it take Botox® to work?

Let’s answer that question – and more – now!


*Individual Results May Vary

How Long Does It Take Botox® to Work?

Your Botox® results won’t appear as soon as the treatment is administered. And while some clients see improvement within the first 24-48 hours, most clients should expect to see the final results from their Botox® injection about five to seven days after treatment.

Once those results appear, you can expect them to stick around for three to four months.

These results are similar for injections similar to Botox®, including:

What Will My Botox® Results Look Like?

If you’ve been looking for a decidedly younger, more rejuvenated appearance, then it’s safe to say you’ll be happy with your Botox® results.

Most clients see significant improvement in their facial appearance, with results including:

  • Smoother skin
  • Fewer wrinkles and lines
  • Diminished crow’s feet
  • Faded frown lines
  • And more

How Often Should I Get Botox® Injections?

You should get Botox® injections every three to four months, or as your results from your previous treatment fade.

Clinical trials have shown that long-term Botox® users tend to have their results last longer (five to six months vs. three to four months). If your results start to stick around for longer, you may find that you only need to get a Botox® treatment on a semi-annual basis.

How Can I Maintain My Botox® Results?

You can maintain your Botox® results by following good skincare practices, like:

  • Avoiding rubbing your face, especially in the first 48 hours after your treatment (this could cause the Botox® formula to spread)
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Wear sunscreen and use medical-grade skincare products
