Botox injection suddenly not working well

Is it the same provider who has been injecting you? If not, there may be a different technique and you might develop a different result. You should determine what is wrong so see the doctor who injected you recently.  If one muscle group is relaxed, adjacent nerves tend to over compensate.

It sounds as though you're a Botox veteran but you've had some good experiences and some not so good.  First, be sure you are being treated by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.  This will ensure you get consistent, fabulous results every time.  Second, you should see the person who did your treatment 10 days ago and have him take a look at it.  Based on your description, it's something that can be easily addressed.
