A patient asked 3 years ago
I got botox for the first time 4 days ago. I got 25 units total for my horizontal lines and the lines between eyebrows. One eyebrow I have some range of motion while the other stays frozen so when I try to raise my eyebrows at all I do the one eyebrow raise. when I make no expression it looks normal but if I look super close my left eye (right eye in the picture) has some of the extra skin above my eyelid dropping down slightly. Is this anything out of the normal or should be expected?

Unevern Results following Botox

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Since you just had Botox 4 days ago, you still need to wait as it can take as much as 2 weeks for the full results of the Botox the final look to settle. At that time if you are still having problems, it can be easily fixed by small touch ups and it would be best to do a follow up with your doctor at that time. Botox is a temporary treatment and in worst case, any undesirable results will be short-lived. I hope it helps and good luck!
