Correcting xeomin injections. What's the best option?

Spock Look from Xeomin
This is a common mistake from an inexperienced injector. Small doses of Xeomin can be placed at the lateral edge of your forehead and in the depressors at the medial or inner edge of your eyebrow to ease the "Spock Look." Or, you can wait for the Xeomin to wear off.
To be sure, see two or more experienced board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have these treatments.
I hope this helps.
Dropped brows after Xeomin
This is a common mistake of novice injectors. Please find an advanced injector who is board-certified in dermatology or plastic surgery.
#Botox #Xeomin - Correcting xeomin injections "Spock" appearance
The first is that the eyebrows are too low medially, the second is that they are too arched in the middle and laterally.
Neuromodulators, such as #Botox, #Xeomin, and #Dysport all work the same way. They "weaken" whatever muscles they're injected into. To smooth the lines between the eyes, the neuromodulators should be injected ONLY into the muscles that cause those lines (the plastic surgeon should know which those are).
If you also wanted to diminish the forehead lines, and the neuromodulator was injected into the forehead, then you've weakened the muscles that lift the eyebrows and, not surprisingly, part of the eyebrows have dropped. There is not much that can be done for eyebrows that are too low, except to wait for it to wear off (which it will).
For any parts of the eyebrows that are now relatively too high, injecting a little more directly over them should help them drop. (Injecting too much can cause other problems so it's best to do just a bit, let it take effect for a few days, and then have it reassessed).
With neuromodulators, all the effects - positive and negative - are temporary, making it among the safest of procedures performed by plastic surgeons.
I hope that this helps and good luck,

It is not the Xeomin that caused the spock look, It is where the Xeomin was injected. Good news it can be corrected.
