When Will I See Results from BOTOX®?

Maximum results from your BOTOX® treatment can take up to 14 days to be achieved. Still, it depends on how much time has passed since the initial treatment, among other factors, such as the quality of the BOTOX® clinic you received treatment from. While most results last for 3-4 months, the length of time BOTOX® lasts can vary from person to person.

Visible BOTOX® results vary from person to person. Most patients see minor results, on average, 5 to 7 days after treatment. However, BOTOX® takes up to 14 days to fully activate. While some patients see changes rapidly, maximum results can take up to 2 weeks from the initial treatment to be fully realized. 

Are BOTOX® Results Immediate?

No. Results are not usually visible the same or the next day. 

It takes time for the BOTOX® injections to kick in because the BOTOX® binds at a connection point between muscles and nerves called the motor endplate. Injections are absorbed by the nerve cells first and take time to work into the muscles. Once the targeted muscle groups stop contracting, the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the surface of the skin lessens. 

What Do BOTOX® Results Look and Feel Like?

“Right after I get my BOTOX®, I feel like I pay attention to how much movement I can—or can’t—see a little more because I’m super excited about my results! But typically, I experience less and less movement over a period of a few days. And then, about two weeks later, I remember to notice, and I can see the lines softened around my eyes and forehead—and that’s what I love about my BOTOX® treatments!” – Dermacare Patient, age 43 

BOTOX® softens lines and wrinkles by suppressing the movement of targeted muscle groups. The result is smoother and refreshed-looking skin with fewer and lighter lines. You may feel a slight heaviness or tight sensation that will subside in 1 to 2 weeks.

If you are concerned about your BOTOX® results, contact your provider.  To schedule an appointment, call 757-330-5802 or use our contact page today.
