Botox Injections around the Mouth

From the photos it looks like you had a facial filler that was injected into that area.  I do not inject Botox in that area and it is generally not done.  Fillers are generally used to  treat the nasolabial area.  I would immediately return to your physician for evaluation. Please let me know what happens.

Its best you contact your medical provider to further evaluate the area, you were probably treated with a filler, Botox isn’t usually used to treat the marionette lines

Are you sure that it is botox

Botox is generally not used for the marionette lines.  Are you sure that you didn't have a filler (e.g. Juvederm)?  But it is very unusual to have such profound swelling 10 days after a procedure.  If would see your dermatologist and consider that something else might be going on (e.g. Melkerson-Rosenthal Syndrome).  Good luck.
