Botox & Fillers
Cosmetic treatments in the upper face
Botox and aging face
I looked at your pictures and do see some possible volume loss under the eyes. A filler such as Juvederm or Voluma may be helpful there to plump up the under eye area so you won't look tired. As far as repeating the forehead Botox, you certainly can repeat it to freeze your forehead. It looks like when you are not trying to lift your forehead that it is smooth, so the Botox has definitely helped eleminate wrinkles in the resting state. Again if you want no ability to make an expression in the forehead then some additional units would help.

Combination treatments are best when it comes to antiaging and refreshing the face
Botox usually lasts 3-4 months in most patients. If you were under-dosed, then the results may wear off sooner. Some patients also just naturally start seeing their Botox results wear off sooner than the normal 3-4 months. With regards to refreshing your appearance, I would probably recommend combination treatment with Botox for dynamic lines on the upper face and fillers for volume loss and static lines on the lower face. You could benefit from a filler injection (Restylane or Belotero) to the tear troughs. I would also consider fillers to the midface and perioral region.
Finally, I would recommend a topical skin care regimen including sunscreen, antioxidant and probably a retinol. Peels and microneedling could help improve your skin texture. Filler could improve the pox scar. See an experienced injector for an in-person consultation.

Bang for your buck!
Great questions and thanks for the photo. In my opinion the number one thing that makes people look older is the quality of their skin. Before investing in botox and fillers, I would make sure to be on a good skin care regimen composed of a cleanser, Vitamin A derivative (such as retinol0, and bleaching agent (like hydroquinone or kojic acid) and most importantly a sun screen. It can take 3-6 months for your skin to start looking better. Good luck!
Botox and forehead
I usually have my patients wait for a full treatment for 3 months. They should be a little more aggressive on the next treatment either increasing the dose or number of areas. You have mild crows feet that would respond to Botox. You also appear to have tear trough under both eyes, where there is a lack "volume". A filler in this area by someone skilled in this region would help, but beware this area is very unforgiving.
Fillers and Botox
Because of the wrinkles and volume loss of your face, you will need a combination of volume rejuvenation with filler(s) and Botox to prevent the advancement and worsening of your wrinkles.
