I turned 50 this year and have felt like my brows have really fallen which has made my upper eye lids sit very low, right on my eye lashes. This is true especially of my right brow and eye lid and I would draw the brow higher with pencil to make it look like it was at the same level as my left. I have thought about having an actual brow lift but I hate the thought of surgery so decided to try botox.
I went to a nurse (who works under a PS) who has been doing botox injections for 10 years. I was very worried about eye lid droop so made sure to ask her if she had ever had that happen to a patient and she said no and that you have to know where you're injecting or that can happen.
She was very conservative, only put in 20units, a little more on the right side. She said she didn't know how strong my muscles were and said we could review and add more at two weeks. I have been very pleased overall. Its subtle but I look more awake and my eyes look rounder.
At two weeks she put 2.5 units into one spot on that right eye brow to get it to lift a little more and I feel they are quite even now. As a first time botox user I felt some heaviness in my brows the first day and then again around 2 weeks for a day or two. I also got a weird twitch under my left brow for a couple days but it went away. She said sometimes with the first injections that will happen but probably not again. I am posting pictures. My husband can't really tell the difference much in the photos but he says in person there is quite a difference. I felt it took quite awhile to see results, maybe because of my age...
Just thought I should mention I have had Juvederm...

The little "1's" I had are totally gone now as...

Overall it hasn't been a huge difference but enough I would be happy if it would stay this way. The important thing also about having a little less injected (according to the nurse) is that you still have muscle control, there is no freezing. I can't really make the 1's anymore but I have total up down muscle control of my forehead and eyebrows.
