Neurotoxin to decrease horizontal forehead crease left me with noticeable uneven eyebrows. Re-injected yesterday on one side. Will this work at all?
This is a common risk that can be minimized: Neurotoxin is meant to weaken the muscles in areas where it is injected.

While it is always possible that such changes, which may be undesirable, can occur, it is best to inject less initially and enhance with more product two weeks later. ...Read more

Cracking sound when I turn head after deep tissue neck massage- been over 1 week now, no pain but scared by this sound...Should I worry?
See a DO for opinion: Usually the cracking sound is just the articulation, or movement of one vertebrae over the other as you move your head. You need to let your massage therapist know what happened. Then, if it continues, see an osteopathic doctor for consult, evaluation and treatment, to put everything back into alignment. That should reduce or eliminate the sound altogether. ...Read more
