Bulge after Botox injections

Thank you for the answer. i do not believe that would help the bulge issue. Botox is a temporary treatment so you should see improvement in that condition if it was caused by Botox as the Botox wears off.

Good luck!


Botox and Eye Bulging?

Unfortunately, you will just have to wait till the Botox wears off. This should occur anywhere from 3-6 months after injection. The eye exercise will likely not help as the muscles are not weak, but paralyzed from the Botox.

Eye exercises

The simple answer is no.  the bulge will gradually go away and should be much better in a couple of weeks

Botox injection and eye bulge

I don't believe it would make a difference. Unfortunately, you will likely just have to wait the 3-4 months it takes for the Botox to wear off. Sorry to hear about your issue with Botox.
