Everytime the skin is penetrated (even with a surgical needle) there is always a possibility of infection.The Botox effect  SHOULD have been fully obvious by now. Botox does "not work" when it is
- Old or expired (and ineffective)
- Dilute (and therefore insufficient to cause a change)
- a forgery ( many "cheap" sources of mail order "Botox" are not really Botox but forgeries)

In addition, your injector may have been inexperienced and used poor technique.

In my opinion you need to be seen by the doctor (hopefully a Plastic surgeon) and be assessed for infection as well as for treatment with REAL Botox. You may want to read the Botox page on my website for a full explanation.
