The effects of Botox will last 3 to 6 months. As muscle action slowly returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking.
Studies have shown that Botox (most commonly known as the brand name Botox), when used in low but effective doses, does not ruin your face.
From a medical point of view, once the effects of Botox wear off, your face will NOT look older. Botox injections help you get rid of some of the unwanted wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, chin, etc. Once Botox wears off, wrinkles begin to reappear again and do not become worse after the treatment.
As with any treatment, of course, the longevity of the results will vary from patient to patient.
Botox is approved for patients who are 18 years and older and most experts agree that patients in their mid to late 20s and early 30s are at a good age for preventative Botox treatment.
Your facial muscles do not contract, so they don’t fold your skin, and you don’t develop dynamic wrinkles. When you stop using Botox, your muscles will eventually start working as they did before you used the treatment. However, your muscles or your skin do not make up for lost time by accelerating the aging process.
