How often does Botox need to be reapplied to maintain its effect?

I read that the effect of Botox disappears after some time. How often is it necessary to repeat the application in order for the results to be permanent?

The duration of the Botox in general lasts about 4-6 months. In younger patients it may last up to 8-9 months. However even if you can't repeat injections at 4-6 months intervals it will be an investment for you for the future. Because if you do nothing wrinkles will become more visible compared to situation that you did nothing.

the duration of botox effect will vary depending on the condition for which you are treated. On average the effect usually lasts 4-7 months after the first injection.When the effect starts to wear off, you can have the treatment again if needed.

Clinical re-evaluation will decide this timing, usually the second application is after around 3-4 months, third is around 4-5 months, forth 6-9 months. Many parallel factors plays a role in this timing. The whole regenerative anti-aging management plan is almost always include other skin rejuvenation techniques that prolong the effect and tightens the elastin and strengthens the collagen, improve and produce new skin microvascularization and improve detoxification. We use Platelets Rich Plasma PRP-autologous preparations, Bi & Tri

Effects will never be permanent. For permanent effects, you will need surgery. You will need 1 or 2 applications by year to maintain results

The effect of Botox can last for 4-5 months or more. Generally lines start appearing after 120 days (4 months) and a repeat injection treatment may be needed after 4-5 months to maintain the wrinkle free look.

There will never be a permanent effect if the treatment will interrupted. To maintain the effect Botulinumtoxin should be applied 2-3 times a year.

first injections will last 4 months, but if you inject again each time it is necessary , the duration will increase little by little because the muscle lost few fibers. so delay will increase from 4 to 5 and 6 months ... some people can even come every 10 months after a while.
it depends how strong the muscles are and much you make them move
best regards
