Anti-Aging Treatments: How Long Does Botox Last?

What You Need to Know About Making Botox Last Longer


How Long Does Botox Last?

Botox, the fountain of youth, lasts between 3 and 4 months. Botox boosters can be used to extend its effect.

The number of units used with the right technique, may be directly proportional to the efficiency of Botox injections.

Plastic surgeons may inject muscles regularly for higher impact.

3 Things to Know About Botox Boosters

In order to make Botox treatments even more effective, Eden Aesthetics has developed a pill called Zytaze, which contains high doses of an enzyme called phytase. It also contains zinc, which has been used to heal wounds and repair damaged tissue for ages.


Zytaze promises users to expand the length of time within Botox treatments by 30%.
Patients who want to use Zytaze are prescribed two pills per day for four days before Botox cosmetic treatments. Patients must also take two more pills on the same day of the Botox procedure.


Zytaze claims to fasten the healing process after a Botox procedure. The New York Daily News published a clinical trial about it and it stated that 92% percent of patients found the pill actually prolonged Botox effects.

How Can You Make Botox Last Longer?
  • Keep away from the sun on the day of the Botox procedure.
  • Choose a reputable professional to administer Botox injections.
  • Stop obsessing about your wrinkles and lines as this ends up making them even more evident.
  • Have Botox sessions routinely so your muscles get weaker, providing results that last longer.
  • Leave at least twelve weeks in between Botox procedures to prevent muscles to become immune to the treatment.

All About the Botox Treatment

Luckily, all women and men over 18 years old who haven’t shown allergic reactions to Dysport®, Myobloc® and Xeomin® can get Botox injections. Also, those who have very specific areas of concern and need a non-invasive option instead of surgery can get Botox.

Before setting up an appointment for Botox injections, your doctor will have a consultation with you to discuss your specific needs and decide which Botox product is most suitable for you.

WIth sessions taking as little as ten minutes, during the first session patients most likely receive 5 Botox injections for frown lines and 3 Botox injections for the crow’s feet area. It is absolutely imperative that you only visit licensed and experienced professionals to lessen the risks around these delicate facial muscles.

After the Botox procedure is finished, there is no downtime needed. Therefore, if you get Botox, you can resume your daily routine whenever the treatment is over.

Make sure to inform your doctor about any excessive swelling or painful symptoms that you might experience after getting Botox injections. He or she will give you further instructions.

I was afraid of using Botox for the first time, but Dr. Roly was very kind and eased me into the whole process. I’ve had 6 units and my face has never looked better! Very professional and compassionate. I appreciated the time he spent going over the details with me, calming my nerves and fears and then hand-holding me through the shots, which were -surprisingly- not as painful as I had thought!. Thank you Dr. Roly I will come back! - Jennifer Sanchez
