It's been almost 8 months now and I'm still having problems. I've had botox injected to me twice. First time around, I only asked for it to be injected to my frown lines. I had no problems at all and the results were amazing. Second time around I was only going to have it done for my frown lines again but the doctor somehow convinced me I should have my forehead done as well. I don't know why I agreed as I didn't have any lines on my forehead that bothered me. Now this has turned out to be the biggest mistake I have ever made in my life.
I am only 32 and now I'm afraid that I have been permanently damaged by botox and my looks are ruined for life. After receiving my second treatment, botox kicked in very quick. 3 days later I looked like a freak. My left eyebrow was sat alot higher then the other but to make matters worse my right eye appeared smaller because the skin above the lid was drooping over the eyelid. I went to see this doctor again really upset and concerned and he laughed and told me not to worry. He said that my eye wasn't drooping.....only that one side had reacted better to the botox then the other. So he injected more botox above the right eyebrow (above the droopie eye). Few days later my problem was solved..my eyes looked fine. Now (8 months down the line) the botox is wearing off but I am experiencing the droopiness of my right eyelid again. It looks alot samaller then the left eye which is fine. Also when I raise my eyebrows with my forehead musscles, the left eyebrow reaches higher then the right one. Also, I feel a weird sensation between my eyes (frownlines) almost like I'm numb there. Please help me or give me some advice. I don't know what to do and I'm feeling so depressed and sad because of all this. Will these side effects go away?
