Eye drop after Botox
I sure hope your eye didn't drop after Botox, sounds scary ;)
You either had an eyelid or eyebrow droop after your Botox which can be due to several factors, but usually placement is the main factor. The effect you describe will likely last about 2-3 months. See an expert injector such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to minimize the risk of such mishaps, and to review treatment options such as Iopidine drops, or lateral eyebrow elevation with a bit of Botox.
Botulinum Toxin (Botox and Dysport) injection
Eye massage will not help the eye drop. Some drops such as Lopidine may provide minor relief but the effects should dissipate over a 4-6 month period.
Droopy eyelid or ptosis after Botox may be treated with drops
Hi lamyaa in Dubai, 03,
Ptosis, a droopy upper eyelid, is uncommon and may occur with anyone after any neuromodulator treatment around the eyes, such as Botox Cosmetic or Dysport. Ptosis is temporary and resolves once the Botox effect is gone, usually within a couple months. This temporary eyelid ptosis is usually treated with eye drops to help stimulate other muscles to lift the eyelid. Massage or facial exercises don't help to improve ptosis. Also, one should not be massaging the face the first 24 hours after these injections. Speak with a specialist to help determine appropriate options for you. Best of luck.

Eyelid drooping after Botox
Do you have eyelid ptosis or just eyebrow descent. There is a big difference. The eyebrow descent may be from overtreatment of the forehead resulting in the brow descending. Sometimes treating the antagonist muscle ( the orbicularis at the edge of the eyebrow) to allow it to come up a bit helps. If that doesn't work, you may need to wait a few months for it to improve.
Eyelid droop after botox
You need an evaluation as there is a difference if the upper eyelid is droopy because the forehead has come down too much or is it because the levator muscle of the eyelid itself, which helps keep the upper eyelid open, was affected by diffusion of the Botox. If it is the former, then sometimes putting more Botox in the glabella between the eyebrows and the outer corner of the eyebrows can help lift the forehead. If it is the levator, then a prescription for Iopidine eye drops may help the eyelid lift up slightly. At least your effect is not permanent and should go away in a few months.
Eye drop after Botox
First you must have your doctor evaluate you. If the drop is from the brow then drops will not help at all. If the eyelid drop is from the lid itself then drops of iopidine or other agents chosen by your doctor will help and it should all resolve with no treatments in 2-6 weeks. The worsening you are seeing on day 10 is likely due to the delayed onset of Botox and should be at its max by 14 days
Iodipine drops is the answer
