How can I heal ice burn under eyes after Botox?

Hello, I had Botox today in crow's feet and the assistant used an ice roller device under my eyes afterward. It burned while she was doing it and now my under eyes are reddish, sore, and slightly swollen. I am nervous. How can I heal them? Thank you!

Botox for eyes and ice burn

Botox is great for the crow's feet and an ice roller is not necessary afterwards.  I would call the treating physician and ask them what they suggest.  In the meanwhile I would treat it topically with a soothing cream or aloe vera gel.

Ice burn on skin

You an apply a topical hydrocortisone to help calm the redness, after a bit of cool water. It should resolve within a day or so depending on how bad the burn was. Sorry this happened!
