Also studies using Dysport, Xeomin, show a very rapid onset, sometimes within 2 to 3 days. How long it lasts depends on the dose. If you go to discount place that waters it down, it might only last 4 to 6 weeks; but, in general, the duration is 3 to 4 months; and you get longer duration after several visits.
