Nearly two weeks ago I had Botox for the first time. It was by someone local to me who had been recommended. I’m 49 and had it in my forehead. Unfortunately (and now I’ve seen lots of references to this online and in your book) it has lowered my eyebrows and made my eyelids almost non existent. (Not eyelid droop. Just eyebrow droop). It has caused me huge distress, not the least because I didn’t tell my husband or anyone about it. No one has said anything but I’m extremely stressed and self conscious about it. I’ve read that it can sometimes be fixed (at least In part) by further Botox in a different part (that wraps around the eye) to lift it. I’ve also read that it should just be left. I wondered if you could suggest anything to help?

Your poor thing, huge sympathies, I completely understand how distressing this is. I would strongly suggest that you just leave well alone and let it wear off. Yes, technically a really skilled and experienced practitioner might be able to achieve some improvement – but the trouble is that the muscles that lift your eyebrows are already disabled for the time being, and nothing can change that. But hang on in there, your forehead muscles will regain their former movement. How long will it take? That depends on how much toxin the practitioner used, but your normal movement patterns should start to return between 6 weeks and three months.
