I do not typically inject Botox into the lower eyelids or under the eyelids.  The orbicularis oculi muscle in certain people when paralyzed can droop and create a new bag.

Whatever Botox you had 6 months ago should be long gone. I would look at old photos and see if had that dent before or look for another cause as the Botox should not be around any longer

It is unclear by what you've described if you had 1 unit per side or split the 26 per side and 13 units per each under eye area? Botox will typically last 3-4 months so it's hard to say what might be the issue at this point.

Do you have photos? Did you do anything else? 1 unit makes so little difference I cannot see it doing a darned thing. At 6.5 months ago, the Botox is long gone!
