Any adverse reactions usually occur within a few days of treatment. Botulinum toxin effects are not reversible. They are expected to be temporary in nature and usually resolve spontaneously within weeks. Rarely, symptoms may persist for several months.

The treatment of the brow, and any area other than frown or crows feet with botulinum toxin are not a licensed indications*(modify for brand used). The product manufacturer has no liability should a complication arise, when this medicine is used for indications that have not been licensed.

Expected Outcome

Successful treatment should prevent or significantly reduce the expressions causing the lines. Treatment may not cause the expression lines themselves to disappear completely. The expression may not be completely frozen, particularly if extreme effort is exerted to make any expression. Any decision to increase the dose, or repeat treatment, will be made at the discretion of the practitioner, informed by safety and best practice.
