Botox panic

Hi, I got Botox 7 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't 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 one side 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. 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

Hi dear, i can understand your problem. As much as i know about BOTOX, it is trustworthy. However, i have found an article entitled " Does Botox really replenish skin?". Hope this could help you.

Dear Zoe,
please don't panic.
It is absolutely normal that one side starts earlier than the other. And it can take more than seven days for the botox to completely work. If there is still muscle action after two weeks you should go see your doctor again for a touch up.

All the best

Hi Zoe,
The Botox effect needs two weeks to show the full effect, so you can wait one week or two weeks more,
if still same you have to come back where you did the Botox to do the control.

Wish this will help you.
Kind Regards
