Hello, and thanks for your
question! Muscles do, in fact, occasionally respond to BOTOX Cosmetic
treatments at different rates. Three days after a procedure is still too soon
to see final results, so give your self some time — usually about 10 days —
before pursuing correction. Your results will likely even out. Keep in mind
that nearly all faces have some degree of asymmetry. While a BOTOX Cosmetic
treatment may amplify that asymmetry, you might just have noticed it because
you're paying more attention to your face. Good luck!
Botox injections take two full weeks to see the effect. It is possible that each side is responding a little differently. I would wait two weeks and then if it is uneven you should return to your treating physician to correct the problem.
- The average time to respond to Botox is 5 days.
- The range is 12 hours to 2 weeks.
- Give it a bit more time and if at 2 weeks you don't like the result, see the doctor who treated you. Best wishes.
Three days is too early to evaluate your response to Botox. Wait until the two week mark and then have a look and decide
Some muscles take longer to respond to Botox than others, so yes, you can have some areas responding now and others responding soon. That's why we tell people not to worry or get any touch-ups for at least 10 days. Things can change. Remember though, that like Dr. Chong pointed out, almost everyone has asymmetry, just like your brows before the treatment, so those can continue their asymmetry unless something was done to compensate for this during treatment.

I usually point out facial asymmetries, before administering Botox and/or fillers with patients. The first pic shows that your left brow has a better arch, at baseline. Once the inner brow (corrugator) muscles are
treated, the brow position will appear to elevate but asymmetries will also be magnified and require 5-7days to develop. If the "11"s (vertical lines) persist after a week, you may want to notify your injector so additional product can be dosed. The function of the "scowling" muscles is to "knit" the inner brows together and down. Once the blockade is set up, you should anticipate the inner brows to splay open and the outside
brows to elevate. Hope this helps.
