Is 10 units of botox for the "11" lines between my eyebrows enough?

I am 31 and just had botox for the first time. I had 10 units of botox 5 days ago for my "11" lines between my eyebrows. I feel that my lines were very deep, as I apparently scowl a lot. I do notice a difference, however my scowl lines are still very prominent. Should I get more injections or will the results continue until I reach the 2 week mark? I would like to lose the ability to scowl almost completely. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ten units of Botox is not usually enough to eliminate the muscle function in the glabella area (between the eyebrows). However, 5 days is not long enough to determine the effects of the Botox that was injected. If, within another few days, you still have function of those muscles, you will need further Botox injection. Make sure whomever does it is an Expert Injector (ExpertInjector.com) so that you will receive what you need to obtain your desired result. If you have deep lines that do not disappear when your muscles are completely relaxed, you will also need a filler to get rid of the lines completely. An Expert Injector will also be able to help determine this also.

20 units for the "11" lines between the eyebrows. If there is no muscle activity in that area when you try to scowl, then the Botox has done what it is supposed to, but wait another few days for the complete effect. Sometimes deeply etched lines benefit from a dermal filler in addition to Botox.
