I was told that it may result to hooded eyes if anti-wrinkle is injected in the forehead. Is this true?

When the frontalis muscle is injected with anti-wrinkle injections, it relaxes the muscle down. There is always a small risk that it can relax too much and have “hooded eyes”, but I like to stay high, central and lighter dose in the forehead for this reason.
At Cityskin, we love the fresh not fake look and sometimes, when the forehead is “over-injected”, leaving you with a frozen muscle, it can tend to make the forehead shiny. I would prefer you to have a smaller dose in the forehead, with a little bit of movement, to try and prevent hooded eyelids and to also give you a natural looking result with your injectables. 
Everyone is different, and require different doses, depending on how big the forehead is and how strong the muscle is. Our experienced injectors will be able to give you a guide to how many units you will need in a complimentary consultation.
