Dr. Mark McKenna from ShapeMed by Life Time answers a reader’s question about Botox.
Q: I’m interested in trying Botox. How often should I expect to have injections?
A: Botox typically is administered every three to four months. Allergan, Inc., the manufacturer of Botox, recommends treatment every three months. In practice, however, we recognize that each patient is different, so evaluation and treatment must be tailored to fit the needs of the individual. It is not uncommon for patients who have been receiving Botox regularly for a period of years to experience a benefit for five to six months.
