At the Rendon Center, many patients who come into our office considering anti-aging solutions such as Botox injections may want to have a lot of their questions answered by our experienced team of professionals. The providers at the Rendon Center in Boca Raton, FL have been providing Botox injections for years, allowing patients to turn back the hands of time on their appearance and address dynamic wrinkles and folds on the face. However, patients may be confused as to whether or not they need to schedule in downtime and recovery, and how many injections they will need over time to keep their skin looking youthful and attractive!

What is Botox?

Understanding how Botox works is the first step in learning the length of time the results will last. Botox is a neuromodulator. It works by injection into specific muscles of the face, allowing these muscles to relax. This relaxation will smooth away fine lines and wrinkles around it, resulting in a more youthful look. The medication naturally becomes less effective with time, which means patients will need additional injections to maintain the results they achieve after their first round.

How long does it take to see the results from Botox?

For many of our patients, the results occur gradually after infections, typically anywhere from 10-14 days. Patients will want to have follow-up treatments done several months after the initial injections to maintain the results they have achieved.

Is there any downtime needed after Botox injections?

Each body is different and recovery times vary per person. It is important to follow the recommendations of an expert injector during your consultation process. This will allow them to design a treatment plan with downtime that meets your needs and allows you to achieve the best possible outcome without compromising on safety or efficacy.
