Can anyone who had droopy eyes or eyelids after getting Botox injections comments on how long it lasted? Would you do Botox again? Thank you!

My friend had gone for botox treatment few weeks back. She is happy with the results. She had gone for the wrinkle removal treatment from fairview cosmetic surgery clinic. She told that the results will be visible only after one or two weeks and it may differ for each persons depending upon the surgeon, treatment etc. But in my experience with her, botox well treats aging problems

Hi guys, Just wanted to give an update. It has been 7 weeks since I got botox for my frown lines. The result was awful. My eyes were uneven, one was bigger and the other had an eyelid drop. Nightmare! I understood from my doctor that she applied 40 units. So with this in mind I had no idea how long would the eyelid drop last. Well it has been 7 weeks and it has improved a lot, not totally but at least I feel better. I know the feeling of frustration that the only remedy it's time but just want to encourage you guys that it will pass and if you had less than 40 units it might be faster. I would only recommend to detox as much as possible. Take vitamin B, go to sauna, exercise and ginger baths. I did all of this things. Keep strong!

I have had the same problem in the past. I will NEVER let anyone give me more than 25 units, they always say I need more and I tell them then I will come back after 2 weeks to see if I do. It will get better and go back to normal, I promise. Don't let this experience leave a bad feeling about Botox, it can be great and look amazing if done right and not over done. The problem is there are so many medspas doing it that these young girls really don't have much experience.

Don't be a sucker twice in a row. Botox is poison and should not be allowed to feed women's vanity.

That's not cool Becky1946. If Botox makes someone feel better about themselves then who are you to judge. I'm assuming you don't drink, smoke, eat meat, eat dairy, live in the mountains where the air is pure....don't place judgement on here. This forum is dedicated to people that need advice, seek suggestions and just want to discuss different things.

I think Its a choice, I would not do it again because of the bad experience but everyone has their own reasons. I would definitely advise people to research reasearch reasearch. I believe true beauty comes from the inside out, when I did it I was going through a divorce and I needed to feel better. Obviously it didn't work. Now that the nightmare passed I have to admit that it's nice to see my forehead smooth and young :) Good luck to all of you

This forum is also for people to be real and express real opinions. What I said was true but you don't like hearing it because your vanity won't let you.There are many on here who agree with me. If you are so happy with Botox why are you on this forum. This is for people going through tragedy as a result of Botox and trying to talk some sense into people like you and support each other to get through it. We don't need Botox lovers here. You are in the wrong place.No I don't drink or smoke and I try to eat healthy and I do live in the country where the air is cleaner. Botox was developed for medical reasons and I had it for that reason. Then women caught on it could make them look younger and went wild with it and it drove the price up. You must think you are ugly if you would go to this extent. I am 67 and feel I look good because I take care of my skin and don't need poison to do it. If God wanted me to inject poison in my body he would have given me a bottle when I was born. You might just as well smoke pot or take street drugs if you care that little about yourself. I just hope or do I that one of your little harmless Botox injections don't make your face fall off. Come back and tell us but I bet you won't. Why aren't you showing your face here and that gorgeous Botox that makes look so great.

So I am 6 weeks out from my botox. Initially the eyelid droop was so bad my eye was practically closed. I had a huge family party where I have to literally tape my eye open using medical tape and strategically place my bangs. The iopodine did nothing for it. After about a month the iopodine had a little bit of an effect. For some reason after about 2 weeks of using iopodine with some positive results I developed a severe reaction to it and the whole area underneath my eye became red, swollen, puffy, and pushed my eye closed from the bottom. I completely went off the iopodine after the dr looked at it. I still have some droopage that is very noticeable in photos but not as bad in person. I am still styling my bangs over that eye. I am very disappointed in this whole ordeal and cannot wait until this finally wears off. It has been one thing after the other and my entire summer has been monopolized by having one messed up eye so I can't even enjoy the benefits of my smooth forehead. I am 34 and would recommend anyone near my age to think long and hard and definitely don't let anyone put 33 units in your face!!!

I have had had botox twice and unfortunately had the drooping eyelid twice,second time just before my daughters wedding,horrible horrible experience,I thought I had just been unlucky with the first practitioner but I'm am obviously someone that should not have botox,also I have noticed that the my eyelid is still slightly more drooped than the other eye and it had been 9 months,think this is how it will stay now,think botox looks great on some people but is not suitable for everyone,defiantly don't take it lightly.

I had Botox 2 months ago, the right eye began to droop 2 weeks after (lid not brow). I have had Botox before, so this was new to me. I went back to talk to dr who did it and he was sorry, but said it would need to wear off. He had previously done my botox, but the assistant in the office said I should have it injected in my brow to lift it, well that was the mistake. It has been horribly dibilitating, and if anyone asks me "what's wrong with your eye" one more time, I'll scream. My vision has been affected and I wear glasses now to see the computer. I hope it wears off. If not, I don't really know how I'll cope with this.

I got botox 10 days ago and 4 days out my lid started to droop a little then 6 days out my eye is almost completely closed. The iopodine drops have no effect. I was told by the dr initially that the slight droop was as bad as it would get until I went back 2 day later when it was closed. I'm nervous about what happens when I reach the 2 week mark. The dr. says I was very sensitive to Botox and next time he will do half the amount (don't think there will ever be a next time). It is extremely embarrassing and I have been crying about it and staying in the house. For a family event I had to go to, I used medical tape to hold my eye open and used my bangs to cover the tape. It looked semi normal- but still ridiculous to have bangs in one eye. I am hoping it starts to wear off quickly because it is hard to function in daily life with one eye. I can't even enjoy the lack of wrinkles because I don't want to leave the house.

Visine is not good if you have dry eyes. My eye Dr. told me it does terrible things to your eyes.

Iopodine is prescription only but Naphcon is over the counter and a slightly weaker drop than iopodine
