How Often Do I Need To Get Botox & Fillers?

Botox and fillers are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the world. They are quick and simple treatments that can lead to profound results. In fact, many patients around the country are getting preventative Botox to help address the signs of aging before they start to arise. If you are new to Botox Cosmetic or dermal fillers, you probably have a handful of questions. In this article, we will provide some information on the timeline for getting Botox & Fillers and what is typical in terms of how often patients receive touch-ups. If you have specific questions and live in the Cape Cod area, we would be happy to meet with you in-person to discuss your goals and specific questions. We have three offices throughout Cape Cod including our Plymouth, Hyannis, and Sandwich locations. For more information about our injectable services, please contact us or click below. 

What Is The Timeline For Getting Facial Injections?

Before you get any injectable you should find a local provider who is certified with the products they will be injecting. A certified master injector like the ones on our team, have the experience and know-how to make sure you get the results you are aiming for. Another thing to look out for is the variety of treatments and procedures your provider offers. Practices that have a variety of injectables as well as different skincare options are more likely to be able to match you to the right treatment plan for your goals. Once you have found the right practice you need to schedule a consultation. Injectable treatments are extremely straightforward. After a quick consultation with your provider, injectables can be done on the same day with virtually no downtime/recovery. Depending on what injectables you get, you might notice your results at different times. For example, most dermal fillers provide almost instant results. Botox Cosmetic and similar neuromodulators can take a few days for the results to appear. 

How Long Do Different Injectables Last?

Botox Cosmetic

Generally speaking, patients tend to see their Botox Cosmetic results fade around 3-4 months after their treatment. Patients who receive Botox Cosmetic multiple times often notice the results last longer after later treatments when compared to their first experience with Botox Cosmetic. 

Juvéderm Fillers

Juvéderm has a large variety of injectables that are used to add volume and decrease the visibility of lines and wrinkles. Most patients notice that their results can last anywhere from six months to eighteen months depending on what fillers they received. Fillers can also be reversed unlike Botox Cosmetic. 


DAXXIFY is a neurmodulator similar to Botox Cosmetic. Its most noteworthy difference from Botox Cosmetic is that it tends to produce longer-lasting results. Many patients notice results that last 4-6 months from their DAXXIFY injections. It is often used by patients who have had Botox Cosmetic in the past and want a longer-lasting result. 

RHA Fillers

The RHA Collection of fillers utilizes hyaluronic acid to add volume to areas around the face. RHA fillers are often recommended for treating areas around the cheeks, nose, and mouth. Results from the RHA collection can last around a full year depending on the treatment area. RHA is frequently used to treat lipstick lines and dynamic wrinkles/folds. 

How Often Do Patients Get Injections?

Every patient is unique and often their unique goals will influence how often they decide to get injectables. First and foremost, many patients in their late 20s and 30s use fillers and Botox Cosmetic for preventative care. These injectables can fight the signs of aging before they begin to appear. Because Botox Cosmetic tends to wear off around 3-4 months after injectables, some patients consider getting Botox 2-3 times per year. Because fillers tend to last longer, patients receive these injectables much less frequently. 

One thing to note is that some of the core factors that can lead to wrinkles and lines are preventable. Good skincare habits like using sunscreen throughout the summer, staying hydrated, and following a daily skincare routine can help you keep your Botox and filler results longer. That said, even with great skincare, many patients still look to get a touchup routinely.
