Botox panic

Hi, I got Botox 6 days ago to lift my brows, elevens and crow's feet. I'm in a bit of a panic though because only one side has began working. I'm told it's takes two weeks to get the full effects but I can find anywhere online of people saying it only began kicking in on one side. At the moment I can still frown but only on one side of my face so it looks strange, my crow's feet are still visible on both sides and I can fully move my forehead, any information or validation would be greatly appreciated, I have no one's else to ask. Thank you x ps this is my first time having it done, I don't know how many units but the place I got it done is very trustworthy and professional

Dear, Zoe. You do not need to panic. Usually I evaluate the result after Botox treatment after 10-14 days. For the wrinkles to disappear your muscles should be paralysed, and in your case you can still frown. So be patient and wait for another week. If you see asymmetry after 2 weeks contact your doctor. You will be fine :)

Thank you so much for responding. I feel much more at ease. Actually I don't know why I was even panicking, all I have to do is go back if it doesn't work 😂

Dear Zoe,
It depends on the type of botox used, dilution and how many units. Usually the effect starts to install the second day, but graduated until 7 up to 12 days .
If after 2 weeks it's still not ok, you must contact the clinic and redo the procedure

Dear Zoe,
what you describe happens quite often. One side reacts to the toxin earlier than the other. It can take up to two to three weeks to have the final results. If there is still muscle action after that period of time you can always go back to your doctor to get a touch up.
All the best
