Uneven eyebrows after Botox/Dysport.

If the right eyebrow elevates more than the left, following a botox "lift," is it possible to go back and have the left eyebrow lifted MORE to match the right eyebrow, even though the left seems to be frozen in place? The right eyebrow lifts when I raise it, but the left stays in a lower position. Thank you.

Yes……most of the time.   A small extra drop under the left brow should help.  That drop releases a small muscle that like to pull the brow down, a brow “depressor” muscle.

If that doesn’t work, it’s usually because too much (this is relative) Botox was placed in the forehead above the left brow.   If that’s the problem, than the left brow won’t lift no matter how much you release it.   Other answers to readers’ questions on Botox problems.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
