 This problem can be corrected rather easily with BOTOX injected into the hyperactive area of the frontalis muscle. Only a few units should do the trick so the cost would be miinimal, roughly $16-25. I think you would be pleased with the result.

Dear Mizo:Neuromodulators such as Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are effective in the frontalis muscle and the forehead. It is not a cure but a tereatment and will have to be repeated every 4-6 months. Hope this helps.

Hi Mizo.  Neuromodulators such as Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are effective in the upper third of the face.  Botox will temporarily weaken the frontalis muscle.  I hope this is helpful.  Regards, Andy Shah MD.

Any neuromodulator, such as Botox or Dysport will help temporarily improve the condition by weakening the muscle. It may require more than one treatment for your practitioner to achieve the optimal cosmetic result. Typically, it will require maintenance injections every 3-4 months.

Hi Mizo,

Botox can absolutely help with your problem. Botox is specifically designed to relax facial muscles around the eyes and we think based on your description that your problem will be easily addressed with Botox. We suggest finding an experienced practitioner as injecting asymmetrically (different amounts on opposite sides of the face) like this is a bit more technique dependent. Good luck.

Botox relaxes muscles and is used medically for over active muscles around the eyes. Be careful of who you chose to perform the procedure. You want a Plastic Surgeon or experienced Dermatologist. There are techniques that will even the position of your eyebrows in the hands of someone who appreciates the nuances.
