... feet. 4 months later, my face is concaving in these areas (one spot on my forehead, in between my eyes and on me cheek bone). I am very distressed over this. I cannot find anyone that this has happened to. The doctor who did the injections said it " cannot be the Botox". Does anyone know if this will go away or wear off eventually?
I have had Botox injected on 4 different occasions on my forehead, in between my eyes and crows?

I quizzed my Botox doctor who gives me 25 injections every 10 weeks about side effects and he never mentioned what you describe. I think that you need to see another doctor to find out what the cause is.
I know that your post was a while back. Has your indentations gone away or where you able to get a doctors help?
I also now have indentations through out my forehead after having Botox .
Are there any others that have had this experience?
Are you on any other sites?

I too have 3 elongated dents on my forehead from botox. My guess is that years of weakened muscles finally created the endentions. Dr suggested a filler but I'm suspicious of his advice. I haven't had botox for over a year and endentions still as deep as ever.
I had three rounds of botox for migraine headache. The protocol for the injections includes three across the brow line and three or four mid forehead. Since I got no pain relief from the botox I quit getting them last August. A few days ago (5 months after the last set of injections) I noticed a dent over each eyebrow and a huge crater (1" x 1 3/4 ") right in the middle of my forehead. I have read that botox can destroy muscles but I plan to see my neurologist who did the injections ASAP.
I had an indent after a Doctor injected me with waaayyyy too much botox, even after I asked for a natural result. It has mostly gone away (albeit after one and half years). So have hope! And no more botox!!! I thought it made me look good, but I realise now I just looked older and a bit freakish. Now I am just embracing my age.
Use a warm compress and massage it. It will go away.
unfortunately I have had a similar problem. For several years now, I have an odd-shaped "dent" in my forehead that I know without a doubt came from botox and I can even identify when it happened, because it was visible immediately afterward. I believe that it was due to an improper injection technique that damaged the muscle. The location of mine is above my right brown and extends to the side of my forehead. It's hard to explain the depth and shape without a photo but I am sure you understand having experienced it. I definitely share your pain and concern about it. When I am fully properly injected, it has not been as noticeable, but even injected, I could still see it, although it may not be noticeable to others. We are more aware of our flaws and notice them more than others. I hope for the best for us, that someone will provide info on a successful treatment for this, and hopefully include the doctor's name.
If I find something on line, I will let you know, please do the same. I am going to follow your post to view the responses and hopefully we or someone else will provide a success story and doctor referral.
