After BOTOX eyebrow position can change

After BOTOX eyebrow position can change because some muscles may work more while other muscles are relaxed. If it doesn’t look natural it can be touched up with BOTOX injections to different areas.

High arch eyebrows after Botox

+1

You describe a situation that should be straight forward to improve. As long as the area that needs further treatment is mid height in the forehead in the vertical line that crosses the eye's position, a few units of Botox should relax that high arch. The physician should not inject the Botox too close to the eyebrow in that vertical plane, otherwise, there may be a drop of the upper eyelid.

You just need a small injection

Sometimes, certain areas of the frontalis muscle respond more than an adjacent area, resulting in crazy eyebrow shapes. There is a simple fix for this. It should be done between 7-14 days from the treatment and usually requires only 1-4 units of Botox. I have seen this less frequently with Dysport.
