Delayed BOTOX Cosmetic Results
Botox Injections and Response
Botox injections take two full weeks to see the effect. It is possible that each side is responding a little differently. I would wait two weeks and then if it is uneven you should return to your treating physician to correct the problem.
- The average time to respond to Botox is 5 days.
- The range is 12 hours to 2 weeks.
- Give it a bit more time and if at 2 weeks you don't like the result, see the doctor who treated you. Best wishes.

treated, the brow position will appear to elevate but asymmetries will also be magnified and require 5-7days to develop. If the "11"s (vertical lines) persist after a week, you may want to notify your injector so additional product can be dosed. The function of the "scowling" muscles is to "knit" the inner brows together and down. Once the blockade is set up, you should anticipate the inner brows to splay open and the outside
brows to elevate. Hope this helps.
