Botox: Benefits and Risks

Dr. Rafael Gottenger, Plastic Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, says with botox you don’t want to look paralyzed, that if you are happy or upset you look the same.

He also explains botox lasts from three to six months, because that is the effect of the toxin that paralyzes the muscle, and then the muscle will start activity. “We recommend not doing it more than six months, because then you have to use more to keep the same result.”

He says if it is applied close to the rest eye line, for example, you can have a paralysis of the eye that can last for three to six months.
