How long does droopy eyelid last? I had a very small amount of Botox injected.
Droopy Eyelids Caused by Botox?

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.

The good thing is that the eyelid droop is reversible and the rarely lasts as long as the complete duration of the Botox. It may last as long as 1-2 months and can be helped some with Apraclonidine eyedrops.
Be sure to be seen your injecting physician to see if you are an appropriate candidate for the eye-drops.
