Botox gone wrong!!! What can I do??

Hello from Israel. Sorry for not smiling, I used to be a very happy smiling person before my Botox catastrophy. A month and a half ago I received Botox injections on my forehead/brows, crows feet and without my permission the Dr injected under my lower eyelids. My cheeks dropped, making me look 10 years older at least, and many vertical lines under my eyes that were not there before appeared. The process also changed the appearance of my nose. Please explain to me what happened, and what I can do. I'm in agony. I'm 39 years old and used to look really good. I have three little kids and am trying to keep myself alive. Thank you in advance.

First of all, I’m so sorry that you had this happen to you.  I know that all of our hearts go out to you while reading this.    I would like to send you some encouragement because while you are so uncomfortable now, this WILL go away.  It’s been about 6 weeks already and you have about 4-6 more to go.  You are half way there!!!!  Be really good to yourself for the next six weeks and get a lot of support from your friends and family if you can.   More on Botox.

I know it’s sometimes hard to admit that you tried Botox and it didn’t go well.  But you may find that many women and even some men have had similar experiences.   Botox tends to last longer the more you do it so because it was your first time, it will wear off sooner.  Dr. I

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?!
