Wrinkles will not deepen during this period as the muscles will not continue to bend the skin after the botulinum toxin effect begins. There will be no harm in not continuing the Botulinum toxin application afterwards.

Botulinum toxin is known to be effective in the treatment of wrinkles between 4-6 months. At the end of this period, the application can be repeated completely optionally.
