Did i get enough Botox?
Thanks for your question. Since it was your first treatment I agree with the conservative approach. As you get Botox more the lines will soften. You still have a natural look and a non-frozen look. I would get used to it and the next time you get treated ask for a bit more.hope this helps.

Botox is a learning experience.` It is best to start with smaller doses and see what happens
Thank you for your question mommieof4mlh. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression such as those between the brows and on the upper forehead. The pivotal studies demonstrated that using a dose of 20 units in the glabella to treat the vertical 11's seen when one frowns allows patients to enjoy their results for 3-4 months. The peak effect was seen at 14 days after the treatment. For my patients I use at least 20 units in the glabella and have them return two weeks after their treatment to take after photographs to assess the results. We take standardized photographs at rest and with facial expression. One must understand that Botox relaxes muscles so after a treatment, the muscles will not contract completely and the lines formed from muscle contraction will be less deep with expression. If lines are apparent at rest, however, they may or may not be improved with Botox, depending on the depth. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Botox injection stars to show after 3 days and gives Mac effect after 2 weeks.
The dose you was given is moderate but the effect depends on your orginal wrinkles.
I advise you to wait till 2 weeks the you can consult your Dr for a touch up if needed

Botox and Results
You look so much better in your photos after Botox but it takes 2 weeks t see the full results of the treatment. If you need more after 14 days return to your treating physician. Best, Dr. Green
