BOTOX® injections wear off three to six months after they take effect. For most patients, this means that the lopsided appearance that occurs due to ptosis could return. The same is true with migraines as well.
But you can maintain symmetrical facial features and migraine-free days with more treatments. Getting BOTOX® injections two to four times a year can keep your muscles relaxed and pain signals blocked.
BOTOX® treatments with Dr. Saulny take about 20 minutes. He uses a tiny needle to inject small amounts of BOTOX® into shallow muscles in your skin.
BOTOX® treatments are swift and pain-free. Most BOTOX® patients say there is no discomfort at all during their injections.
There is minimal recovery from BOTOX® as well. All you need to do is not touch the injection site and keep your head upright for thirty minutes afterward.
You can get BOTOX® in the middle of the day. It won’t interrupt your everyday life, and there is no lengthy recovery period after.
It can take up to six months to see the full benefits of BOTOX®. In the meantime, continue your everyday routines, including taking any prescribed medications.
