Botox and results/refund
Botox and Metabolism
Different patients metabolize Botox at different rates. I would return and ask to try a different neuromoluator like Dysport for your injections. It is best to consult a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
I would recommend trying another product--choices are: Botox (Allergan), Dysport, and Xeomin.

Botox - want a refund because of short duration
- Botox results vary - and an occasional person does not respond at all.
- In some people it lasts a very short time, apparently because of very fast nerve ending re-growth.
- This is not something that can be tested beforehand and it is very uncommon.
- Although office policies vary, because the problem is not the outcome of your doctor's error, it is unlikely you will be offered a refund.
- Check the written office refund policy however to be sure.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes
Botox not lasting
Botox refund? = unlikely and it depends on your doctor's cosmetic treatment policy
Botox result, for being an elective non-medically necessary cosmetic treatment are not 100% guaranteed. Botox treatments like any other cosmetic procedure is NOT the same like buying a TV in BestBuy where iif you don't like it, you just return it and get the money back". There are multiple factors that could affect the result of Botox treatments. Even in the hands of the a specialist in Botox applications, all the patients won't be perfect all the times since treatments is from a human (doctor) to a human (patient), both unable to be "perfect" all the time. Medicine doesn't work as a TV factory or a retail store.
In my practice, I advice my patients that if by any chance their Botox treatment is not-satisfactory, they should return for a follow up visit and get a touch up. The cost of the touch up depending on the doctor's Botox treatment policy.
