Botox stopped working

I had Botox for my crows feet and it worked great, but the second time I got it, it didn't work so the plastic surgeon had me come back For a "touch up" and it didn't work either. He said he put 3 units in each side both times. He told me the strength varies from vial to vial which I have a problem with considering Botox is "poison". I cancelled my future appointment with him because I don't have &400.00 to throw around. So why did it stop working for me? I've only done Botox twice and the second time it stopped working...

It is very unusual for Botox to stop working. There might have been issues with the dilution or rarely there could have been a defective vial. Discuss these with your injector. (more)
