Botox Bumps on Temple Area 4 Days After Treatment

Hello I did Botox on my forehead, my temples /crows feet on Wednesday (4 days ago) and had bumps on my forehead. Strangely enough, the bumps on my forehead all went away after a day (except 1) but some new bumps in the form of lines going down my temples have formed. Plus i can feel them there as well (not hurting but there - hard to explain).. Any idea why and what I can do about this ? Thanks in advance

Botox and bumps

Small bumps can occur immediately after Botox injections and can last up to a day.  If a bruise develops, it can last longer.  Botox causing delayed bumps is unusual.  Please see your injector for assessment.

Botox or fillers and bumps

Please see your doctor who injected you with Botox to evaluate what you are experiencing.  Bumps always occur after Botox as there is some fluid that is injected but this dissipates quickly for most patients.   I don't understand the rationale of injecting temples with Botox as there are no muscles which contribute to wrinkles in that area. Was a filler injected in the temples for hollowness. That would explain a line of lumps possibly. If Botox is injected and a blood vessel gets bruised it may become hardened but that is extraordinarily rare and very doubtful that it would occur on both temples. Your doctor may be able to give you a good explanation once he or she examines you.

Bumps on temple after Botox Injections

Sometimes you may have some swelling that has occurred in the Injection sites themselves. These usually go away after 24 to 48 hours unless you have some bruising which will leave a small bump where the blood has accumulated under the skin. If this doesn't clear up I would suggest going in to see your injecting physician for a check up examination. Best regards!
