Did too much botox make my brows heavy?
Wait a full two weeks before making any decision. This may be related to over-treatment of the forehead. The best option is usually to wait it out as more botox may worsen the problem.
Always wait 2 weeks post Botox treatment to assess results.

Botox and Touchups
Wait 14 days before considering any additional treatment. If the forehead was "over treated" then you have to wait till the botox has worn off (roughly 3-6 months). Pictures would help. Best, Dr. Emer.
It would help if you posted some photos so that we can see what you're describing and figure out how to help.
To simplify the forehead, think of two separate muscle groups. You have depressors and lifters Over injecting the frontalis will weaken the lifter and cause eye brow drop. You have that. Do not add more there. The elevens are caused by corrugators and procerus muscles. Injecting them should result in eye brow lifting centrally. If there is no overlap and the injections are placed correctly, the results are clean cut and separate. However, muscle overlap can occur altering the result. Proper dose and proper location is a must
I would love to see your pics. In my opinion, the glabellar Botox should produce a brow lift, and this has been shown in studies. It's generally, the frontalis injections that cause the forehead and brow droop, unless, of course, the glabellar injections were done too far laterally, which would tend to cause a droop. I generally place 20-24 units in the glabella. If it appears that the brow will droop I only do the glabella. I generally do 16-20 units in the frontalis. It sounds like you needed more in the glabella and none in the frontalis, at least until the glabella took full effect.
