I had Botox injected 4 weeks ago and it has left me with an indented scar at the injection site. How can I fix? (photo)

Thank you for your question Kostaboda1. Botox is commonly used to address wrinkles on the forehead. Sometimes bruising may occur, which resolves on its own. I have never seen a scar from a Botox injection. But scars can be treated with fractional lasers. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Botox results and scarring
Honestly, I have never seen or hear of scarring after a Botox injection. Bruising, of course, can occur with any injection. The best thing to do is followup with your injector to discuss your results.

Botox Cause Scarring?
It is unlikely that Botox caused scarring. Do you have before close-up pictures to verify the indentation wasn't present before? It would be unusual/odd to have two needle injection sites that close together with Botox. Injection sites are farther apart than that. Now that your forehead is more smooth, small indentations or contour regularities that you have always had but may not have noticed before may now be more apparent. Also, slightly asymmetric muscle movement after Botox may form an indentation. When the Botox wears off, and your wrinkles return, your issue will likely resolve. It may be best to wait till that time before considering fillers. Also, to improve the texture of your skin, reduce the indentations/unevenness, and improve you skin tone you may want to consider microdermabrasion and peels. They are a great adjunct to Botox!
