1) Take the supplement Arnica Montana
2) Cold compress for 2 days

Thanks for your question. This is a question that we get asked often by our patients. The most common SIDE-EFFECTS of toxin injections include: Swelling, Redness, and Bruising at the site of injection. Complications are rare and only temporary, but may include paralysis of other nearby muscles, temporary eyelid ptosis (dropping of eyelids, 2% risk, lasts 2-3 weeks), temporary brow ptosis (dropping of eyebrows, 2% risk, lasts 2-3 weeks), cross-eyes, ectropion or edema of the lower eyelid, dry eyes, double vision, transient headaches (10%), local numbness (lasting 2-3 weeks), flu-like symptoms, rash at the injection site, pain at the injection site, infections, and bruising (need to avoid blood thinning medications). Cold compresses may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling only if needed. This may be applied for 3 minutes, 3 times per day, for up to 3 days. This is best done with a bag of peas in a zip lock bag. Only apply light pressure to the area. Only take Tylenol if you get a headache or migraine.
Bruises from Injections
Botox in the crow's feet would cause bruises on the side of the eyes. Did you get filler injected under the eyes? Fillers under the eye area often cause bruising like you are describing. Best, Dr. Green
Under eye bruise
Bruising after normal
i recommend taking Arnica 6c sublingually until the bruising disappears along with cold compresses for two days. If you still have bruising after two days continue taking six tablets of the sublingual Arnica and substitute warm compresses. Do not massage the area.
good luck to you!
