How Often can I Have Botox® Injections?

BOTOX® Cosmetic appeals to many of our Phoenix-area patients because of the ease, simplicity and convenience of the injections, especially when compared to extensive cosmetic plastic surgery.

However, you might be concerned about the temporary nature of BOTOX® treatments. While BOTOX® is a great way of eliminating wrinkles and giving you a youthful, energetic appearance, the treatment is temporary. You will need to periodically return to Gawley Plastic Surgery for treatments to maintain the results.

Every patient is unique, and our doctors will determine how often you should return for BOTOX® treatments based on your specific needs. Most patients report that the youthful, wrinkle-free appearance that BOTOX® has given them lasts three to four months after their injections.

That timeframe can extend out to six months in certain circumstances. Regardless, it is not advisable to get BOTOX® injections in the same area if less than three months have passed since your last treatment.

Many factors go into determining how often you’ll need BOTOX® injections, including:

  • Age
  • Facial structure
  • Diet
  • Smoking habits

We’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have about BOTOX® at your consultation and before your procedure. As with our cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, we believe knowledge is important for our patients.

If you’re a Phoenix, Arizona resident looking for younger-looking skin without the need for cosmetic plastic surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic might be right for you. Please contact Gawley Plastic Surgery today to arrange a consultation.
