Depression area after Botox. (photo)

Thanks to the doctors that have answered my query when I posted a question on feeling some itchiness between the eyebrows after botox, it did resolve itself after a few hours. One week after Botox injections , I am quite pleased with the result, my eyebrows are higher and my eyes more open, however there appears to be a hole like a depression area above my left eyebrow. Can this be corrected with more botox?

Botox injection

Botox cannot be used to treat your depression. Usually fillers are used in this case. Good luck!

Depressed area after Botox

Botox cannot correct the problem but filler can. Be sure you see a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon or the equivalent

Depression/dent after Botox?

This can not be corrected with Botox or the brows will not have as much lift. There is a fat pad there that often has volume loss. Filler in the area can help. I use cannulas for this to minimize bruising and to maximize safety.

Depression on forehead after Botox

Thank you for your question cinzia. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. It is difficult to see a depression on this image. The best thing to do is compare an after photograph with a before photographs. Sometimes after a treatment to correct wrinkles, other imperfections are observed that were not previously observed. Depressions are not normally addressed with Botox. Depending on the cause other treatments may be available. 

Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
