If you stop BOTOX treatments after many years of regular injections, the only effect will be that your wrinkles will return, albeit a bit more slowly than if you had not been using BOTOX. Should you decide to take a break from BOTOX, you can safely stop at any time and resume it at any time without adverse effects.
Is it worth getting Botox once?
Individuals can benefit from Botox once wrinkles are already present, or before they become too pronounced as a preventative treatment to prevent wrinkles from forming in the future. Many of our patients are curious to know what will happen to their faces if they stop using this treatment.
What happens if you start Botox then stop?
Many people worry that if they stop getting BOTOX injections, their wrinkles will come back faster and worse than before. However, this is not the case. If you stop BOTOX injections, your wrinkles will slowly start to come back, but slower than if you had never used BOTOX to begin with.
Does Botox work after one time?
When injected properly by a medical doctor, you can expect to see results after your first treatment. It can take two to four days before the weakening of the muscle begins and movement is stalled. You can see the maximum results of your treatment anywhere from ten to fourteen days after treatment.
What happens after 10 years of Botox?
If you use Botox for ten or more years, your skin will appear brighter and smoother with fewer wrinkles. Even after stopping Botox injections after years of use, you'll still notice fewer wrinkles between your eyes or on your forehead, which means you'll continue to age gracefully.
What happens if you don't keep up with Botox?
The Re-emergence of Wrinkles and Fine Lines The most evident change when you cease Botox is the gradual reappearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox functions by temporarily paralysing the muscles that cause wrinkles, bestowing a smooth, youthful look.
