Botox and the brow.
Botox is right for you but it needs to be used judiciously to give you a brow lift. Too much Botox in the forehead gives you a heavy brow that is ok in men but not women.

It certainly looks as if yoiu have a smoothing result from on the Glabella. It is the forehead dose that is causing the drop. My suggestion is that next time only do the Glabella and not the forehead then go back in a couple weeks and have a minimal amount of Botox placed high on the forehead jus below the hairline. This is likely to prevent too much relaxation to the forehead muscles (frontalis) yet give you some relief from the lines.

I think that there is too much Botox in the forehead or not properly placed. Complete immobilization of the forehead might not be the best for you because you need the frontalis muscles to lift the brows. I would try another physician in the future and explain the problems you have had. Sometimes this problem can be corrected with lifting the brows with Botox. The frontalis is the only muscle which lifts the brows and if over treated, the brows will fall invariably.
Droopy Brow after Botox
I would suggest that you hold off on the forehead injections next time and go a little less around the eyes. Proper placement of the glabellar injections should actually give you and eyebrow lift. Sounds like you might want to try another doctor with a lot of experience in this area. It is an art-form.
That is almost always avoidable. I agree with the other suggestions, find another injector. Botox injected in heavy doses and/or too low on the forehead can result in an eyebrow droop or sometimes worse an eyelid droop. When that happens, you have 2 options - a skilled injector can lift the eyebrows with a few units in the right spot, or wait a few weeks and it will resolve on its own. Try someone else and make sure they have a lot of experience and happy clientele.
First of all, you do not look like a neanderthal, you are beautiful with lovely features! I do see that your brow has dropped however.Unfortunately, there is a balance with injecting botox that not everyone understands. The injection is done into the frontalis muscle of the forehead, which is the muscle that lifts up the brows. If this muscle is completely paralyzed, the brow will drop. The trick is to freeze the muscles that depress the brow (like the ones between the eyes) and only freeze the top part of the frontalis (the lifting muscle). That way the brow stays in place and the forehead still appears smooth. There is some balance between these two.Best of luck
