Does Botox Last Longer in the Winter?

You may have heard a little rumor that Botox results are affected by the weather. So, does Botox last longer in the winter? We answer the question once and for all, below.


What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment for unwanted wrinkles.


During a Botox treatment, your provider will inject Botox directly into the muscle that causes a wrinkle to form until it is relaxed. Once the muscle has been sufficiently relaxed the wrinkle is released leaving the patient with wrinkle-free skin.


Winter Skin and Botox

The winter takes a toll on your skin in many ways. Not only are you dealing with dry skin that is exposed to harsh weather conditions, but experts find that you squint just as much in the colder months as during the summer.


Of course, we all know that squinting leads to wrinkles which can be a real bummer.


Is Botox Permanent?

If you have gotten Botox before you may be hoping that your results will last forever. However, this is unfortunately not true.


Botox is not a permanent treatment.


Does Botox Last Longer in the Winter?

While Botox generally lasts 3 to 6 months, the cold winter weather may actually extend the life of your treatment for closer to 6 months.


While this may not be true for everyone it is certainly an exciting prospect that warrants a try!


Is Botox Safe?

Yes, Botox is considered to be a safe treatment when administered by a highly trained professional such as Maryanna at Northern Virginia Surgical Specialists.
