Taking a break from Botox is of no harm. As Botox gradually metabolizes out of the muscles, your muscles will start to gain full animation and therefore your wrinkles will start to appear close to your baseline.
- Many pregnant and nursing mothers will take a break from Botox, as this prescription is contraindicated during this time.
When someone feels it is appropriate to resume treatments after a hiatus, it may take 2-3 applications of regular Botox (i.e., every 3-5 months treatment durations) to regain your baseline level of smoothness. It NOT guaranteed that you will ever regain your baseline level of smoothness in this timeframe with Botox due to the natural aging process that occurs in all of us during this time off.
