Is this a Botox complication?

I recently had Botox on my forrehead (3 days ago)and I am noticing that when I move my forehead as I cleanse my face or apply moisturizer I feel like I am pulling hair on the top of my dead (just that side). When I received the injection I felt a liquid sensation in that area. I had several shots on my forehead but noticed that senstion in that particular spot. SHOULD I BE WORRIED AND WHY IS THIS HAPPENING???????

First of all –  remember that it takes Botox 5-7 days to fully develop so sometimes at 3 days, for example, as it’s taking effect, there can be a few funny sensations.  These almost always go away after a few days.  Let the Botox "settle in" for at least 10 days and then, if it’s still happening, go back and talk to your provider.  Maybe one of your muscles is pulling a little unevenly when you raise your forehead.  If your symptoms seem to be getting worse, call and go see your doctor right away.  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?!
