Botox for close-set-eyed woman
When you frown, you will see that your brows will move inward and downward towards your nose. This actually shorten your brows, the opposite effect of when you pull your brows sideways. Basically, there are at least 3 muscles that pulls your brows, the corrugator muscle, procerus muscle, and the inner part of the orbicularis muscle.
Even at rest, there are some tone of these muscles going on. Botox injection will temporarily paralyze these muscles, thus relaxing the tone. This will result in widening the distance between the brows and make the brows look longer.
Botox effect on eyebrows
Unfortunately most doctors inject Botox in most patients in the same way without truly examining each patient's unique anatomy and muscle function. Botox can be injected in a variety of ways.
What you are asking for is to spread the eyebrows apart. This can be done easily depending on the resting tone of your muscles.
Botox to elongate the eye brow
Botox injections will paralyze the muscle between your brows and the superficial deep wrinkles will become less noticeable. This creates the appearance of a longer brow. However, it is difficult to assess your particular problem without a photograph. Most likely you would benefit from Botox treatment.
Best of luck, make sure you see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

We have learned much in the more than two decades I have been involved in this field.

For this reason, it is important to seek consultation with a board certified aesthetic physician with extensive experience in the use of neuromodulators to ensure that treatment is tailored to your specific needs..

Effect of botox.
Botox is a muscle relaxer, not a muscle puller. When used artfully it can be used to add some definition and shape to the brow depending upon which muscles we relax.
In my own practice we commonly soften and drop the mid brow by weakening the forehead elevators and weakening the depressors of the lateral brow.
There is no true horizontal muscle that will make the brows move in just one direction. The corrugator muscles make us frown. Relaxing these muscles may bring the brow outward as well as upward.
You may want to try small doses of botox in this area to see if this accomplishes your goal. If it doesn't do what you want the botox will wear off in a few months.
Thanks for the question and best wishes.
