There actually is less possible intervention with eyebrow ptosis (droop) than eyelid ptosis. With the latter you can try eyedrops, but usually with eyebrown ptosis you generally have to wait it out. With time the drop will lessen and should totally resolve after three months. Injections into the depressors, the muscles in the glabellar area, sometimes will help so you might return to your physician for this possible remedy. As far as a refund, this varies considerably.

Your eyelid ptosis should normalize within 2 months. It happens to all doctors that do lots of Botox injections. The good news is that your droopy eyelid can be treated in the meantime. You can consult a board-certified orhthalmologist for prescrirtion eye drops. Or you can try over-the-counter Visine drops with phenylepherine as directed. This will lift the eyelid.

Hi! Four or 5 months after your Botox treatment, your sagging eyebrow will be back in its normal position. Don't ask for a refund. Complications happen. But you can always try another doctor.
Hi Micki, The ptosis will resolve as the Botox is metabolized. The policy of most offices is not to refund $ for untoward results. You may ask for a refund, the worst that can happen is that you are told, "No." If you trust your injector, you may be able to get a discounted rate at your next treatment for your troubles. Good luck and be well. Dr. P
This is not an uncommon side effect of Botox treatment for forehead lines. A proper pre-treatment evaluation can often determine if this is likely to occur. True eyelid ptosis is very uncommon, and doesn't sound like it occurred in your case. As for a refund, no medical treatment is absolute and since this is a known side effect, I wouldn't ask for a refund. If you trust your doctor, go back and the next time treatment can be modified to reduce the chance of it occurring in the future....
