New lines after botox
Since Botox takes about 7-10 days to fully set in, I would wait that full time to see if the lines improve. After that time, if you are still experiencing the lines then I would contact your dermatologist for a touch-up.

I agree fully with what the other doctors have written but would add that you also have what we call (at least in my area) the "flag sign". That's a name for the rippled look near your hairline. We call it flag sign because it looks like "fingers up saluting the (US) flag" or as a military salute in general.If this does not settle down I suggest you also speak with your injector about doing some additional units, even just 5 or so, into the upper forehead to calm this down and give a more natural look.

More Botox Please!
Have your injector place more Botox to the muscle under your hairline and to the diagonal wrinkle. Both are under treated frontalis muscle injections. God Luck!

Your results are likely the results of the Botox but you should wait for a full 2 weeks for the Botox to "settle". In my experience, Botox results are dependent on the person who does the injections. I would recommend that you choose a physician who has experience and a reputation for performing well.
Sorry to hear about your Botox results. This is almost certainly related to the Botox injection. I would, however, wait the full 14 days to allow the Botox to settle in. At that point, you might need additional Botox units, for which I would followup with an experienced injector. Good luck.
