Botox addiction

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on botox addiction.

One of the commonest questions asked by new botox patients, is whether they will be addicted to botox or not. Unlike certain drugs, botox does not cause addiction. You cannot get addicted to botox.

However what does happen, is that since the results of the botox are so good, its very hard to go back to the fine lines and wrinkles that were present before the botox treatments. Many patients are regular patients for their botox treatments and it is rare for someone to have the botox injection just once and thats it.

Saying this, we do have a small majority of patients that like the frozen look and sometimes can over do it with the botox treatment. There have been certain circumstances where I have turned away botox patients because there would be no beneficial effect from them undergoing more botox injections.

You should not require or need to have the botox treatments more frequently than 4 months.
