20 units of Botox were injected into my forehead for horizontal lines. Will my brow drop improve? (photos)

Botox and Brows
Based on your photo, you may benefit from a Botox treatment to your glabellar muscles and orbicularis muscles.
Injection of the depressors of your forehead with Botox may be considered to elevate your brows in the meantime. Consider getting a second opinion from an experienced physician-injector.
Hope this helps you.
It will worsen for 2 weeks

Botox brow droop
- You were given a lot of Botox for that area,
- The effect will vanish completely as Botox wears off,
- How soon depends on how fast your body metabolizes it - usually improvement in 6 weeks, brows back to normal in 12 weeks.
- In women, in this area, for a first treatment I use about 7-8 units. Best wishes.
Your forehead pictures look so good, not sure why the
Muscle compensation after botox
Over time, the body gets used to this new weakness, and will often show compensation. In your case, that means the brow position may come up a little. Or it may take on a different arch form, or even form bundling of skin/muscle in areas of the forehead not injected (like high near the hairline). So the truth is, you might improve, stay the same, or just change. Twenty units is a little high for a first time forehead, so unfortunately I think you will probably maintain that heavy look until the botox wears off overall, in three to six months.
