The bumps you are referring to are just the normal
Bumps from Botox injection
Botox is a great injection especially for the areas of the brow and forehead to soften these wrinkles. It is a bit unusual to have bumps five days after the areas of injection. I would definitely return to your treating injector for examination. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with facial injections and Botox injections.
Bumps after botox
I have seen several patients who have small welts after injection of Botox. These typically last for 3-5 days and then resolve on their own. Most physicians reconstitute their Botox with bacteriostatic saline. Perhaps you have a minor allergic reaction to one of the preservatives or possibly the Botox itself. Dysport contains casein (a milk protein) and if you allergic to it, you can have a low grade inflammatory reaction. A simple skin test will answer this question for you.

The bumps are likely swelling, a local reaction to the injections. You may also have had some bleeding which can cause the bumps also. It should resolve within a week or so.If it persists you should contact your injector.
Persistant bumps after filler injections may be more concerning since it is particulate. Botox is a suspension so this should not be too concerning so soon after the procedure.
Bumps after Botox
Bumps at this stage are probably due to the injection. First time treatment with Botox may take 7 or 8 days to see maximum benefit, but 12 units is a little bit low dose in my experience, unless you have very small corrugator muscles causing those lines. Let them know if the bumps persist beyond 10 days, or if the response is not as much as you would like. I hope that this helps.
