Swollen Eye and Droopy Eyelid After Botox for Frown Area

Botulinum Toxin (Botox and Dysport) and droopy upper eyelid and swollen lower eyelids
Botulinum Toxin (Botox and Dysport) can relax the muslces of the lower eyelids resulting in swollen lower eyelids. Generally speaking this should resolve by 5 months after injection but could wear off sooner. However, Lopidine, could ease the effects of the droopy eyelid.
Botox to the frown area
If you are unhappy with the appearance of the Botox, you should see your physcian to see if there is an adjustment that can be made, but this is purposely usually not done for about two weeks after treatment. the result that you have now can last for three to four months.
Botox - swollen eye
First of all, I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I'd recommend you go back to the place you got BOTOX and talk to your doctor about your concerns. They will be able to evaluate what's going on and explain to you what to expect from the healing process and what your BOTOX effects will be. One day after treatment is too early to see the final results. But you need to have a conversation with your doctor so you have a better understanding of your procedure.
