Why are my forehead wrinkled asymmetrical now? (Photos)

Xeomin is one of three commonly used botulinum toxins used to freeze dymamic wrinkles. 10 units of Xeomin is a very small amount to reduce wrinkles in the forehead. I find you can get an elevation of the brow by treating the lines between the brows and the tail of the brow. Often treatment of the forehead alone can make the eyebrows stiff. I think you can resolve your issue by treating the forehead and the lines between your brows with more units. I still recommend conservative amounts since you would like to have some movement. All the best. Dr. Jean Keamy
Your situation can easily be solved with a few additional units of Xeomin to weaken the side that is still moving. It is also possible one side is stronger than the other. Ten units is a relatively conservative amount, but for some patients this may still result in very little muscle activity. I prefer to err on the side of more movement rather than less when I am first injecting a patient who is concerned about the “frozen” look because I can always add more Xeomin. The relationship between movement and lines is like a teeter totter - the more medicine that is injected, the less the muscle moves and the less obvious lines will be. The more you move, the more lines will be present. You have to decide where the balance lies for you individually to achieve the results you are looking for. I’d recommend consulting with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and expressing your desires.

Thank you for your question and your photos. 10 units of Xeomin to the forehead is very minimal. This can be corrected by adding additional units. You still can stay on the conservative side and not be "frozen". Hope this helps.
Best to you, Dr Faraz
