I have one eyebrow that is quite a bit higher than the other. Can Botox fix this asymmetry? (Photo)

Botox can improve eyebrow asymetry.
Botox can possibly bring down the higher eyebrow to more closely match the lower one. It doesn't always work but helps.
The question you ask is a very good and common one. Your asymmetry is directly related to the amount of asymmetric muscle facial tone that you have. A neuromodulator (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) can improve facial symmetry through the chemical reduction of facial tone/muscle activity. I hope this information helps you as you make the right decision for you.

Botox Eyebrow Asymmetry
Botox (Dysport, Xeomin) help reduce eyebrow asymmetry. This is one of the best benefits of this treatment. It may not be fixed 100%, especially if it is more than a mild asymmetry. I see that with follow up after the initial treatment to make sure no adjustments are needed and with regular maintenance treatment, the brows continue to improve and lift.

That is a good question that many people ask; Yes, Botox can be used to improve an asymmetry of the facial muscles. There are muscles that elevate the face and there are muscles that depress the face. Having knowledge of the action of these muscles is crucial to your success. Be sure to find an experienced injector who has treated previous patients with facial asymmetries. Good luck.

Eyebrow Asymmetry - Improving with Botox?
You have really lovely eyebrows - a great arch and definition to work with, but you're entirely right - one is higher. That's the case in the majority of patients.Although some doctors will 'drop' the high side to increase symmetry, as a general rule, I always think it is aesthetically better to lift something than drop something else and in this case would try to lift the lower. I'd also want to hear from you which your favorite eye is in pictures and use that as the one we match as much as possible.That being said, even the best botox can make a modest improvement in height of the eyebrows, but you have a fairly significant difference. If Botox didn't take you to your goal, there are other treatment options that could be used to supplement or replace Botox for a more lasting solution - it might be worth it for you to research a thread brow lift which could be performed just on the one side.
