Brow drop after dysport

Dear Sir/Madam,

I’m 23 years old and I had an eyebrow lift procedure 1,5 months ago. I had 62.5 units injected into my glabella area and the sides of the eyebrows. Unfortunately I am experiencing some side effects. My brows dropped and as a result my eyes look more hooded than normal. My question is: how long does it take before dysport wears of and when will the side effects go away and when wil

Procedure: Brow Lift
Location: Den Haag, DE - Netherlands

Dear Den Haag, I´m surpised about you having an eyebrow lift procedure at age 23, but of course it is possible. On the route to answer your main question, i´d rather express my opinion that one-and-a-half months sounds to me early to inject botulinic toxin in your frown area and craw feet areas, but anyway, the response I can give you to your question is, according to my own experience: at least 4 to 5 months, before all side effects go away........ warmest regards, Jose L. Valero, MD

Dear Den I agree with Dr Valero comments to you. Anyway the effect of the toxin will last any time in between 4 to 6 months, probably to the upper limiit because you should still have effects of muscular weakness secondary to your brow lift procedure. Get well soon. Best Rigards Luis Carlos Moreno, M.D..

Dear Den.

I wonder why was brow lift necessary at your age. Any particular reason ? I agree with others regarding the downtime. There is one funny thing here. When patient asks how long will my effect (good) last , the company people and even doctors will say 12 to 18 months. Here you are. You will teach us and expect to vanish the effect by 6 months. Interesting, isn't it ?
