I Look Like the Devil After Botox - Santa Cruz, CA

I am 47 and tried botox for the first time. I went to my dermatologist and she spent a lot of time with me. A friend of mine had very good results so I tried it. Lucky for me, my doctor suggested that I try one area first.

Within three days my eyebrows dropped and I now have a very sinister look. My lids hooded over and overall, my eyes look a lot smaller. I suddenly realize that I looked pretty good before. My doctor did not warn me of this side effect.

My hair dresser cut bangs and I will have to wait a few months for this to correct. I am embarrassed that I did this to myself and am shocked how different I look. I am too afraid to try to correct it.

Also, i had some swelling and tenderness on the right side of my face -- very deep under my check bones. The entire experience has been traumatizing.


Hi Santa Cruz,

Welcome to the community and thanks for the review. Oh, my I'm sorry this has happened to you, the small plus is at least Botox is not permanent. Please keep us updated to how you are doing.
