Admit it: You’re interested in experiencing Botox injections for yourself.
Maybe you’ve seen your favorite celebrity suddenly and suspiciously look years younger. Maybe a friend has had Botox injections and can’t stop raving about them. Regardless of what inspired you to look into Botox injections, you can’t help but feel a little hesitant, especially about the upkeep.
It’s why you find yourself asking this all-important question: “How often will I need to repeat my Botox injections to maintain results?”
How Botox Works
Before we dive into the ideal Botox maintenance schedule, let’s take a closer look at how it actually works.
Botox contains botulinum toxin type A, a unique and harmless protein that works to interrupt the brain’s nerve signals to muscles at the targeted treatment site. When these nerve signals are blocked, the muscles instantly relax, causing the surrounding dermal tissue to look smoother and younger. That means if you have wrinkles and fine lines – particularly those caused by furrowing your eyebrows – you could see significant and confidence-boosting results.
But once you see those results, what exactly will you need to do to maintain them?

The Average Botox Maintenance Schedule
In comparison to other anti-aging injections, Botox doesn’t last for an incredibly long period of time. In fact, most clients see their results last anywhere from three to six months. The amount of time your Botox results will last largely depends on the amount of Botox injected at the treatment site, as well as your own tolerance of the injection.
Fortunately, it only takes about 15 minutes to go through a Botox treatment, so it won’t be a huge hassle to maintain your Botox schedule!
The first time I went in for a consultation with Dr. Mark Song he was very personable and very knowledgeable on all my questions regarding Botox and fillers. I have never used fillers and only second time using Botox so he made me feel very confident and at ease so decided to go for it that same day. My experience with botox was ok , with the filler certain areas were very painful and would of appreciated some sort of numbing. The next couple days I was badly bruised in couple areas and called office to let them know and they calmed me down stating that was normal and that it sometimes lasts up to a week or so. So after 2 weeks or so I started noticing the my right cheek had puffy area that was quiet noticeable and my husband even asked me what happened on your cheek? So I called right away for an appointment when I saw Dr.Song and I showed him the area and told him that this didnt seem to be right because even my husband noticed and asked me about it. He told me I was focussed on that and I asked him how we could make it better? Since at first we discussed going a little at a time and now because of what I said he was not interested in remedying the situation. I felt very insulted and hurt at his reaction and paid alot of money to get this done and would have even been willing to pay more money but he brushed me off to his Esthetician for some other procedure, made me feel he no longer had time for me. I will go and get a second opinion see if this was done correctly and if its normal for my cheek to look this way, I dont think so since my husband noticed and he didnt know I did any of this! Very disheartened on this outcome.
