Miserable after Chemical Peel and Botox

A tiny bit confused by this question, but I will answer what I think you are asking.... You got Botox injections, and had a chemical peel done on the same day. During the injections, some Botox ran into your eye? This would have been a trace amount and your eye would have flushed it out. So that part is fine. As for the chemical peel, without knowing what type of peel, what concentration, what chemical, etc. it's hard to say when you will be looking good or how you will be healing. If you have concerns, contact your treating office though.
