Sorry to hear about you experience with Botox. Unfortunately, it is difficult to comment on your situation without seeing photos or evaluating you in person. The "spocking" of the left brow probably indicated poor technique but can easily be corrected with a low dose injection into the frontalis muscle on that side. I would discuss your results and concerns with an experienced injector.

It's somewhat unusual that your effects are so different from one side to another. I'm certain that a better look can be had with some additional treatment in selected areas. I would suggest that you seek out an experienced Dermatologist who has many years of experience with injections next time around.
Correcting problems after Botox
It sounds as if your Botox was not injected equally. Most doctors will offer a complimentary 'top up' service after 2 weeks to address such issues. Please make sure you are getting your Botox injections from a reputable clinic. If you are still having problems please see someone who does have experience a Botox is a fine art that takes years to perfect. Even after 1000s of injections I am still learning!
Botox and Puffiness and Uneven Results
Botox is both an art and a science. It sounds as if you had Botox injected too low above your eyes and produced these results. Please consult an expert for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
Your Botox usually wears off in about 3-4 months. It usually wears off about the same on each side, so it is not common to notice that one side is significantly more active than the other. If you like the way the side with less motion is working, then you can have more Botox placed on the other side. If you don't like the result right now, then the only treatment is time for the weaker side to come back.
I hope this helps and good luck.
