Ptosis getting worse 3 months after Botox?

Side Effects of Botox
Ptosis is a potential side effect of Botox. Generally speaking the ptosis should not last more than 3 or 4 months and when the Botox is completely gone so is the ptosis. I would be surprised if it is getting worse but I would return to your dermatologist for examination if you are concerned.

Interestingly, you can get a little brow lift from injecting botox just under the eyebrow to weaken the muscle that pulls down on the eyebrow. This is one of my favorite techniques.
Eyelid ptosis is relatively rare and depends on botox getting pretty deep inside the upper eyelid to the muscle that holds the actual eyelid up (the levator). There are tips and tricks to avoid this, but it is sometimes just bad luck.
It sounds like at first you had eyelid ptosis and now are getting some eyebrow ptosis. Possibly, you had achieved a little bit of an eyebrow lift from the botox and now that is wearing off.
If your eyelid has fallen noticeably and it stays like this after the botox wears off, it is possible that something medical is going on, and you should see your doctor.
This round of botox should be completely out of your system in a couple weeks. Consider giving a different, experienced injector another try. Best of luck.
