Smiling and botox
Don't worry though, even if you don't go for any touch up, the most obvious change usually improves within a month.
I hope that helps and best of luck!
The great thing about Botox is that it goes away
And yes, some areas of the face do normalize before others after botox treatment. This is often related to how much botox was initially injected into each different area.
All the best!
Botox should start to wear off around 3 months.
An option would be to follow up with your injector and assess before and after photos.

Any Botox effect should be gone at this point.
24 units of Botox is a low dose to treat the forehead and crows feet, unless you did not have the glabellar lines (the "11") treated. In any event, Botox should have completely worn off by now, especially if this was the first treatment in the area, as it usually does not last quite as long with the first treatment, and also takes longer to have its initial effect. I would look to other causes, e.g. fluid retention in the face, etc. Malar fat pads are hereditary, and you may be a the nexus where they are starting to become more prominent, as well.
I hope that this helps.

Botox and Length of Effect
Botox is a fabulous injection. I am happy that you liked the results on the forehead. There are times when Botox is injected too low on the cheek area and has the result that you are describing. These results should go away shortly. By 6 months there should not be any residual effects from the Botox. For the best results please consult a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results.
When Will This Botox Wear Off?
Follow up with your doctor and share your concerns. You can take photos of yourself every couple of weeks, compare, and watch the change.
