How Often Do I Need Botox? 

HOME / PATIENT INFO / BLOG / How Often Do I Need Botox? 

Wrinkles, fine lines, and facial creases are all common signs of aging. While these age-related changes are completely natural, many people wish to resolve them and achieve a more youthful complexion.  

One way to do this is with BOTOX® injections from Virginia Advanced Surgical Arts. 

Botox treatment works beneath your skin’s surface to target wrinkles at the source and help you achieve your aesthetic goals. How often you will need to receive Botox depends on several factors. 

What Is Botox? 

Botox is an injectable treatment that uses neuromodulation to resolve fine lines and wrinkles while preventing new ones from forming. Botox injections contain a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin A. When your doctor injects botulinum toxin A beneath the skin, the neurotoxin interacts with the nerves and muscles in your face to subdue movement.  

Restricting facial movement can make your complexion appear smoother and more youthful. It can also limit the facial expressions that lead to new wrinkles and creasing, such as smiling, frowning, or laughing. This makes Botox one of the more effective ways to reduce signs of aging in the skin. 

How Often Should You Receive Botox Treatments? 

The exact duration of your Botox results will vary slightly depending on where your doctor injected it and how much product they used. In most cases, the effects of Botox will last about three to four months. 

It is important to note that some patients process the Botox solution differently, which can impact how long your outcome lasts. Most people choose to have their Botox treatment repeated about three to four times yearly at Virginia Oral, Facial & Implant Surgery. 

Botox with Dermal Fillers 

When you opt for Botox treatment performed in conjunction with dermal fillers, you can have both procedures repeated simultaneously.  

As part of your custom med spa plan, your doctor can reapply your fillers when you return for additional Botox injections. This will help maintain all of your aesthetic needs in one joint appointment.
