Botox Stopped Working: Resistance?
I've had Botox for frown lines, crows feet, and forehead wrinkles about 6 - 8 times since 2004. I travel a lot so have been to several different doctors and always had wonderful and almost immediate results. In January this year, I went to a new doctor and was disappointed with the results - I felt the treatment was too conservative - did not get as dramatic or long lasting result. In October, I went to someone else, absolutely no results; 2 weeks later they did more Botox - still no results. Then about a week ago, after consulting with the Botox rep, they tried to inject other facial muscles - still no results. I have been reading about Botox resistance, and it seems patients with resistance experience this from the very first injections. But mine is years after the fact. What does this mean? What can I do short of surgery?
