Chin botox

This is an off label use of Botox and should only be done by a board certified dermatologist. Good results can be seen when performed by the right physician. I would suggest discussing with board certified dermatologist at the time of a visit.

Chin Botox

If at 10 days you still have "bulges/bumps" that you didn't have before the injection, then it can be corrected with proper treatment with additional Botox. Always seek experienced physicians with proper credentials (Board-certified dermatologist, facial plastic, Occuloplastic and general plastic surgeon) for your PRESCRIPTIVE cosmetic MEDICAL treatments for best results.

Chin Botox question

Chin Botox can go wrong if improperly placed. If done correctly it improves the dimpling of the chin. It's too early to make a judgment right now. Wait 10 days. Fixing a problem is tough I warn you. Everything gets better in 3 to 4 months.

Chin botox at two days

At two days it is unlikely that the Botox has worked completely. It can take about a week or more.  Good luck.

Botox and results

Botox is a great injection for fine lines and can be used for the wrinkles in the chin area.  The results of the Botox take two weeks to assess.  It sounds like you have some swelling form the injections.  It will take two weeks to see the results and assess how things look.  If you are concerned please contact your physician for their assessment.

Botox - To early to see any effect

The most common SIDE-EFFECTS include: Swelling, Redness, and Bruising at the site of injection. This might be some swelling or early bruise formation. The effects will start to appear in 3-4 days and will see maximum benefit in 2 weeks after the injections. I would wait the full 2 weeks before assessing the final affect.

Thank you for your question and photos.  It can take up to two weeks to notice the results of Botox.  Please give yourself more time to assess the result.  If there is little or no change, it could take 3-6 months for the effects of Botox to dissipate.

All the best,
