Botox help!

Been having it for years but tried someone new this time. All ok for initial treatment - liked the effect but still had lots I movement so went back for top up. Top up was Friday.

I am now freaking out!! Top half of my forehead is pretty much frozen - not the look I wanted but I can live with it until it wears off.

What I can't bloody live with though are the huge wrinkles in arches directly above my eyebrows. They are really noticeable even when I only slightly raise my eyebrows. It looks ridiculous - like a second pair of eyebrows.

Can you top up a top up? Or is it better to love with it (sob) and let it wear off? Anything that can be done to lesson the effect more quickly?

So so gutted as I was happy after initial treatment but due to the movement I still had I knew it wouldn't last long hence having a top up.

Can't speak to the nurse who did it until tomorrow & am currently distraught!!! sadblush

What's happened? Did you get it fixed? I've been considering botox for a while but currently pregnant xx

You need to go back and get a correction. It sounds like you have bat eyebrows which is a common mistake when injecting Botox. Fortunately it can be fixed by relaxing the muscles in the outer eyebrow area.

Sounds like spocking and is easy fixed, don't worry!
