Had Botox between eyes but the results left me with the reverse of what I wanted. How do I find the right doctor?

Question posted by Tanya from Toronto

Four months ago I went to a doctor and had Botox injected between my eyes. This resulted in a lift that minimized wrinkles across my centre forehead but the wrinkles close to the hairline at the top were still there – it looked very odd.

I am 37, would like to continue with Botox,  but am concerned that I will end up with similar results.

  • Dear Tanya,

    Thank you for your clinical post and I appreciate your concerns.  The Botox that was performed between your eyes and for the fine horizontal forehead lines, also called worry lines sounds as though it was partially successful.  The muscle that lifts your brow, called the Frontalis extends from your eyebrow to the hairline.  If the Botox does not extend up to your hairline
    then that elevation muscle, or Frontalis, will activate and will look very odd as only the skin in front of your hairline will be activated.

    Botox is very much an art and a skill.  It is important you seek out a cosmetic injection physician that has many years of experience to minimize these complications and side effects.  Small side effect using Botox can occur in the best of hands, but they are uncommon.
    Botox is an excellent injectable product by minimizing untoward muscle activity can result in elevation of facial parts such as the brow, the cheeks and strengthening of the jawline while still diminishing unwanted lines and wrinkles.

    Your current problem can simply be corrected by seeking out your original injection professional and having additional Botox injected along the hairline.  If you have lost confidence in your injection professional then seek the advice and consultation of a Botox specialist.

    I hope this information has been of some assistance and best of luck.
