Droopy and swollen upper eyelids 6 hours after Xeomin, should I be concerned? (photo)

Hi and thank you for your question. Time......will give you the answer you seek. Neurotoxins do not produce immediate results and can take up to 7 days post injection for results to become apparent. Occasionally you will notice some swelling post injection but should dissipate within 24 hours. I wish you the result you seek. Good luck.
A little swelling after injection with Xeomin can be expected.
As for eyelid droop, remember that it is about the injector, not the injectable. It is important to go to a reputable board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon for your treatments. Everybody's anatomy is a little different and your injector should tailor your treatments to best suit your face and muscles. Even if you have a side effect from neuromodulators such as Xeomin, it will get better with time as your muscle goes back to normal movement - usually 3-4 months.
I hope this helps!
