Does Botox Expire?

Does Botox expire?Botox is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that is normally used to improve the appearance of crow’s feet, wrinkles and frown lines. It can also give the lip a fuller appearance a term which is called Botox lips. Botox is a medical product and consequently it does expire as would be the same with any medicine.
There will always be an expiration date on the package and this typically will be around 2 years. Once the Botox has been mixed with saline, it is generally recommended to use it within 4 hours. However it is thought that it will probably maintain its potency for up to about 2 weeks following mixing. Most practitioners will generally mix the Botox to the correct concentration and then use it all the same day.
As to whether Botox wears off then this is a completely different answer all together. Generally speaking, Botox normally lasts around 3-4 months but this may be longer if you are having the procedure repeated. It is important to realise this when calculating the price as it is not a one off outlay. For more information read the following guide: Botox prices.
The results are generally speaking extremely impressive which is why the procedure is so universally popular. However, your appearance will return to what it was prior to treatment once the Botox has worn off.
