Men and women alike can benefit from Botox treatments, however any person wishing to undergo a cosmetic procedure should be in fair health with a realistic outcome of the treatment. Although Botox is considered temporary, it lasts anywhere from three to six months depending on how long you’ve been receiving injections. Our patients find that it is hardly an inconvenience to visit our office two to four times a year for their Botox injections. In the grand scheme of cosmetic procedures, the injections are a minimal treatment compared to the more invasive surgeries available, such as the eyelid lift, brow lift, or facelift.
