Dysport and Xeomin Are Excellent Alternatives to Botox
If you are having a reaction to Botox, you could try Dysport or Xeomin. The latter might be the best choice for you, as it contains no other ingredients than the neuromodulator botulinum toxin A. The most common reason for your symptoms is a substandard injection technique. If too much is used or if it is placed too deeply or diluted to excess, the problems you are experiencing may occur. That is why it is so important to consult an expert injector like a board certified dermatologist with years of experience.
Thank you for your question muzala. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. It is difficult to make an assessment without a recommendation. But treatments such as fillers and laser resurfacing are also available to treat wrinkles. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Botox Alternative--Try Xeomin or Dysport, Radiofrequency, Co2, Belotero
Alternatives would be other neuromodulators such as xeomin or dysport. Fractional radiofrequency or co2 laser can help this area as well. Belotero filler into the lines maybe be an alternative. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer.

Although possible Botox allergic problems are exceedingly rare. if you and your doctor are sure this is the case then fillers can be used along with resurfacing. Be sure you are seeing a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon
