... 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 don't know the answer to your question, but I will share that I had botox injections on my forehead just two weeks ago and my forehead and scalp can't move. In addition, I also have a concave spot, about the diameter of a dime, between my eyebrows and slightly above.
I had Botox roughly a week and a half ago and have developed an indention in my forehead in between the hair line and my right eyebrow. It is large enough to put the pad of your index finger into. I have sent pics to my dermatologist to determine if it could be from the Botox. Waiting on a reply
I’m only 24 and I had dysport injections above my eye brows to stop from frowning in between my eye brows and it’s been about a year and a half and I have an indent above my left eye brow that appeared a few months ago and has not gone away. some days it is more prominent than others. I never had an indent above my eye brows before and I would have definitely noticed if I did. It makes me look angry at times. I spoke to The business who did it and they say it’s impossible for it to be from dysport. The nurse also tried to say it may had always been there I just never noticed it before which is total crap because if I had an indent above my eye brow I would have definitely noticed it and have photos to prove it never existed before an injection. I believe it was from poor technique and has damaged my muscles or something similar as I am still only young and never had injections before and after they worn off i have an indent.
I don’t know if having more injections will fix it or make it worse I’m still in the process of figuring out what to do as it upsets me when I look in the mirror
I have had this happen to me. some some indentions have Finally faded -away some. Two areas have not. One extends from within my brow all the way up my forehead. It’s also about 3/4 inch wide with numbness. Just woke up this way about a week or so after having Botox. Doctors have no idea what’s causing them. I’m also very concerned. I hope yours have gotten better. If you happen to ever see this, please let me know how it turned out for you & what caused yours. Thanks
I went to for botox for forehead and eye wrinkles. New Dr. He injected in temples which felt really weird and made me think why on earth is he injecting there when I never had it done there before (other Dr s always just inject between and above eyebrows).
Anyway after around 2 weeks I notices indents on my temples and loss of volume beneath my eyes (tear troughs).
Never had sunken temples b4. I went back a month later and he said u need fillers on temples but lots (at least 2 to 4 ml as this area drinks a lot.) I told him this only happened after u did the botox. He said this is impossible, then he denied even ever injecting my temples. Honestly I suspect he injected me with the hyaluronidase enzyme to eat up my natural hyalunic acid (as I have read this can happen, where it can disintegrate ones own natural fat/hyaluronic acid) so I could return to him for fillers. Obviously I will never go to him again as trust is totally lost.
My question is will this be resolved spontaneously and if so after how long? Been now almost 2 months and I feel indents are getting worse. I'm so distressed by this whole thing...
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.
Use a warm compress and massage it. It will go away.
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.
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 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 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?
it helps when you are looking for answers.
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.
