Generally speaking, a single Botox Cosmetic treatment will produce results for three to six months. This, of course, has much to do with factors such as your age, your dietary choices, whether or not you smoke, and how you protect your skin against environmental damages, but most people require additional treatments around four months regardless of lifestyle choices.
During your Detroit Botox Cosmetic consultation, we will be happy to discuss the benefits and limitations of this treatment as well as treatments such as dermal fillers that may produce longer-lasting results.
How Botox Cosmetic Works
Botox Cosmetic works by temporarily interrupting the signals between your nerves and facial muscles, allowing the muscles to relax and the skin above them to smooth out. Deep wrinkles will be significantly improved, and if additional improvement is desired, dermal fillers can enhance the result and make the effects longer lasting.
Because Botox Cosmetic interrupts nerve signals without damaging the nerves or surrounding tissue, your body will, over time, restore the connections, allowing wrinkles to reappear. BOTOX treatments generally last three to four months and may last as long as six months for some patients.
It is safe to use Botox Cosmetic at regular intervals and some people choose to have repeat treatments at the first sign of wrinkles. The frequency with which you receive treatments should be based on your personal desires and Dr. Rifai’s professional recommendations.
