Normally, the effect of Botox will last for 3 to 6 months. After this period, the muscle regains its function and so wrinkles and lines reappear on the skin and will need to be treated again. But because the muscles contract after each Botox injection, wrinkles and skin lines will become shallower and smaller over time.

Who cannot use Botox?

Pregnant people, those who are breastfeeding or people with neuromuscular diseases cannot use Botox. Also, because Botox cannot be used to eliminate all skin lines and wrinkles, it is recommended that the person consult his doctor before the injection.

How many units of Botox are needed to remove lines on the forehead?

The dose required for injection depends on the forehead after the person has been examined and the depth of the wrinkles, the volume of the muscles and the area being treated.
