“What happens after my Botox wears off?” is a common question and often people are hesitant to treat wrinkles with Botox for fear of worsening wrinkles post treatment.

About three or four months after you’ve had an injection with Botox, your muscles will slowly start functioning again and once the Botox has completely worn off, your wrinkles will be back again. Also, over time you’ll start to lose fat and collagen and elasticity, so you may need to add other treatments to address future aging. Botox does not make your wrinkles worse than before. Think of Botox as a maintenance treatment that you’ll need every three to four months if you want to keep the wrinkles relaxed.
