In brief: What side effect?

Potential side effects of Botox include mild facial asymmetry, heaviness of the brow and rare complications such as drooping of an eyelid.
Most asymmmetries can be corrected with a small amount of additional botox. Heaviness of the brow or drooping of an eyelid is usually a short-term problem, lasting only a couple of weeks. The effects of Botox are usually completely gone by 3 to 4 months.

In brief: It depends

If too much Botox is given or if the wrong muscles are injected, drooping can occur this can last up to 4 months but most cases start to improve after a few weeks.
Some undesired effects like "spocking" of the brows is very easily fixed with a little more Botox in the right area.
