Botox can be a god-send when uneven eyebrows affect your appearance.

Eyebrow asymmetry from underlying eyelid ptosis
Neuromodulators like Botox can be used to improve asymmetric brows both by lifting the depressed brow or by dropping the elevated brow.
For more mature patients, or in cases of drastic asymmetry, minimally invasive surgical techniques can be used to gain excellent results.
To ensure you are receiving the highest level of care, seek out a modernly trained, new-school dermatologic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified and fellowship trained in one of these "core four" cosmetic specialties.
Botox for eyebrow symmetry
Botox can be used for eyebrow symmetry.
If injected on the right forehead it can bring the right brow down. The left brow can also be lifted slightly by injecting on the brow depressors.
Mild asymmetries in the brows are common. In the photo, it looks like the right brow is much higher than the left. Was your daughter exaggerating the difference for the photo? An exam in person would help make sure the brow elevation is not masking a droopy eyelid (medical term ptosis) that would need different treatment.
Hope this helps!
Eyebrows and uneven
I often inject "baby Botox" into this area to make the eyes look more even. I would definitely avoid surgery. Please consult an experienced board certified dermatologist to take your daughter to. Best, Dr. Green

The first step would be to figure out why the right eyebrow is higher than the left. It is very common for there to be a slight difference in the two sides, but not usually to this extent. If she is raising her right eyebrow because the right eyelid is heavy, then Botox would not be the treatment. If it is just her normal expression pattern to raise the right eyebrow, Botox would be helpful over the right brow. If it is more that the left brow is falling down for some reason, then surgery may be of more benefit.
I would recommend you consult with a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon. This way you can learn about the surgical options, if needed, and what you can expect to accomplish with Botox.
I hope this helps and good luck.
