Thank you for your question.
Botox usually takes 2 or 3 days to start to work, and will continue to improve over the first 7 to 10 days. The full affect is typically achieved after 14 days.
Should you still have this concern after 14 days, I'd recommend booking a follow-up appointment with your qualified injector to discuss your concerns and options.

Botox can take up to two weeks for total correction. After those two weeks, if you still have concerns with your treatment, I would follow up with your provider who performed your injections. This can be corrected with additional units of Botox. To be sure what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.
Lower lid drooping after Botox
I had Botox and a few days later my lower lid is drooping. Is it permanent?
Ultherapy may have caused the lower eyelid to droop due to the contraction of the skin. This technology emits ultrasound waves which are penetrated deep into the dermis to stimulate natural collagen growth for skin tightening – causing the skin to contract. This procedure provides subtle, natural changes to lift the skin. It is best if you schedule an appointment with a board-certified dermatologist to evaluate your skin to correct your condition.

So sorry this happened to you, but unfortunately the lid droop that you describe can occur, although rarely. The good news/bad news about Botox is that it is not permanent, so your eye will get better! Unfortunately you have to wait for the Botox to wear off, possibly 1-2 months. There are eye drops that will temporarily improve the lid drop, especially if you have an important event, so ask your doctor for a prescription. Do not let anyone inject more Botox to try to fix it, because it does not work, and will just increase the length of time to recover. Good luck!
