Eyebrow Shaping After Botox?
Doctor Answers (6)
I'd wait 4 weeks to be safe
Although the botox should be in full effect with 1-2 weeks, I have seen a few cases where the brow initially raises slightly more than desired and then adjusts down. So the effect you see at 2 weeks isn't exactly where it will stay 100% of the time.
Best to wait at least 2 weeks to shape eyebrows after Botox
The effect of Botox is fully realized at 2 weeks. If by then, you are happy with the effects of your Botox treatment, then I would go ahead and get your eyebrows shaped.
If you need additional Botox at the 2 week mark, then you will need to wait an additional 2 weeks to realize the desired effects from your touch-up treatment before you shape your brows.

The best way to shape the brows with tweezing is to wait until the brow-shaping effect of Botox has been realized. This takes about 2 weeks. If you do not get enough lift, filler can be added under the brow to lift further.

Good question. I would wait 2 weeks after your Botox injections since Botox tends to peak in effect by that time. 2 weeks is also when you would consider a Botox touch-up.
Wait 2 weeks
Botox should have had its full effect by 7 to 10 days. So waiting 2 weeks would be prudent so you know exactly where your brows will be positioned. Best of luck.
