Droopy Eyelids Caused by Botox?

How long does droopy eyelid last? I had a very small amount of Botox injected.
Droopy eyelids after Botox or Dysport usually lasts no more than 4 weeks

Botox, drooping eyelids
Drooping eyelids (eyelid ptosis) after Botox may occur if the chemical weakens the muscle that naturally keeps your eye open. This effect usually resolves within a few weeks and rarely lasts the full 3-4 months that Botox lasts in the forehead. The reason for this is that presumably a much lower concentration of Botox has migrated away from its intended site.
There are some eyedrops to take to reverse this effect.
Please consult with your Botox provider or a board certified plastic surgeon for further treatment.
Botox & eyelid
Occasionally some Botox gets into the muscle of the upper lid and causes it to droop. While it may last the full 3 - 4 months the Botox lasts, it rarely does and generally clears up in a couple of weeks.
