Swelling following Dysport treatment

Hello, and sorry to hear about the negative side effects you experienced. In general, the side effects of Dysport can include the following:

1) Light bruising
2) Swelling
3) Redness
4) Temporary ptosis (drooping of the brow or eyelid)

The issue you describe is likely due to swelling from the product, but only an exam can tell. I would recommend following up with your provider so they can examine the area and make sure everything is alright. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

40 units of Dysport is a very low amount and injections only to the glabella (between your brows) should have no affect under your eyes. Did you have anything else done? I would return to your injector for an evaluation.

It would be unusual for Dysport to cause you these symptoms.  I suggest you return to your injector for evaluation.  I wonder about any other procedures done at the same time that could account for these symptoms?
