When Does Botox Take Effect?

Since Botox is a type of neuromodulator that works to relax muscles and keep them from working at their full capacity, it usually takes three to five days after the treatment for Botox to start taking effect and 10 to 14 days to see the full results. This means that, if you are planning on having Botox injections done for a special occasion, it is a good idea to receive the injections one to two weeks beforehand.

Why Does it Take Time for Botox to Work?

The amount of time that it takes for Botox to work is directly related to how long it takes for the body to start reacting to the Botox. Once injected, Botox will first need to be absorbed by the nerve endings at the injection site before it is able to block the nerve’s ability to contract the muscles that are causing the fine lines and wrinkles to appear.

Factors that Affect How Fast Botox Works

While Botox generally takes up to two weeks to start showing full results, there are a range of different factors that can affect how long it takes before Botox starts to work. In most cases, people with strong facial muscles can expect it to take a little longer for the treatment to start taking effect; however, they will eventually see the same results as other people who receive this treatment.

One of the biggest factors that will affect how long it takes for Botox to work is how deep the lines being treated are. If you are planning on receiving Botox injections for particularly deep lines or if you are a bit older and are receiving Botox injections for the first time, you may need to receive more than one Botox injection in order to get your desired results.
