Glabella movement after two botox appointments-botox injected in forehead, not in glabella. Is this why? (Photo)

Movement After Botox
It appears only your forehead was injected and not your glabella (11’s). These two areas work together and when only one is injected it can result in the glabella lines (11’s). I recommend consulting with an expert and having additional Botox injected into the glabellar area. Best of Luck!

The injection in this are involves 5 different points. Not all are in the middle of the forehead. 2 are in the lateral head of the corrugator muscles. Expecting complete relaxation of the glabella is not always possible with injections, particular with very strong muscles. Over time with serial injections, the muscle weaken and the movement after treatment will gradually be less and less. If you have concerns, discuss with your injector or get another opinion.
Movement after Botox
Thank you for your question. It is difficult to know exactly where the Botox was injected based on your description. However, it appears from your picture that the Botox was not injected into the glabella, and therefore you will still have movement there. I try to be as specific as I can with my patients as to their goals for the injection, so we get it right the first time! I would discuss your concerns with your injector, as well.
I hope that this helps!

From your photo it looks like the Botox wasn't injected into the correct muscles. You need to revisit this with your doctor. Some folks need stronger doses than others, so it's not unusual to require touch ups. Good luck!
Proper placement for treatment of the glabella involves 3 muscles (corrugator on each side and procerus in the center) and 5 injection sites. Injection of the forehead will not benefit the glabellar area significantly.
I would need to know the muscles that were injected. That being said, you still have muscle activity in the procerus and corrugator muscles (both are glabellar muscles) and so your physician either did not dose appropriately or misplaced the Botox. Hope this helps.
Botox Glabella Injections
It sounds and looks like the Botox was not injected into the correct site. You should follow up with your physician to discuss further. All the best.
Wrong injection technique
Agree to stop the glabellar movement the botox injections should target the glabella area (procerus and corrugator muscles). Men in general require more botox than women in this area. It sounds like you had injections in your frontalis muscles (forehead) only.
Getting The Results You want With Botox
It sounds like the injection wasn't placed well. I would follow up with your Dr to get clear on your desired results and how to achieve them. Best, Dr. Emer
