Botox Not Working
Thank you for your question.
It appears that you may require a larger dose. I'd recommend speaking with your qualified injector to discuss your concerns and to determine your options.
All the best.
You need to have more Botox

Consider trying a different product like dysport or xeomin.
If all fails there are surgical procedures which can weaken the muscle in the area.
Botox not working...
Hello. Today is day 13 and absolutely no results with Botox(28 units) on my glabella. I am 29, first timer.
Sorry to hear you had no response. Chances are you just need more. There is a range of doses that can be injected there. I like to start with 20 units which works for about 80-90% of patients. However, that leaves 10-20% that need more. My wife was one of those. She was 30 the first time I gave her Botox. I gave her 20 units and it didn't even minimize anything. I gave her another 20 units (total of 40) and she had a perfect response. Same thing happened the next time I treated her so I know she needs 40 units. My mother in law takes 50. At your follow up indicate you want less motion and you can receive a touch up injection. Once you know your dose that is what can give given the first time next time.
I hope this helps and good luck.
It’s possible that you need more units in the area.
