How long can I expect Botox induced ptosis to last?

How long does a droopy eye last
I would be prepared to have the effects for the full three months until the Botox wears off. In most cases it will improve well before this (sometimes within a few weeks) but since this isn't guaranteed, I say prepare for the worst and hope for the best. You can also discuss your dose of iopodine with your physician to help more in the evenings.
I hope this helps and good luck.

Botox is a side effect of ptosis that can last a few weeks to up to 3 months. The drops work better in the morning but as you get tired you may need to repeat. The condition will get better every week until it resolves.

Usually A few weeks depending on dose and type of ptosis
Complications of botox 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. If it is persistent or you are worried, set up a follow up appointment with your dermatologist.
Ptosis solution after botox : iopidine
This all depends on the amount of botox injected and to what area and it can take to 3 months to resolve. There are some drops called Iopidine which can alleviate the degree of ptosis. Ask your doctor about them and let him evaluate you to see if it is helpful for you.However, as long as the lid is paralyzed you will have to use the drops. Since it works for you just keep using it. Normally 3 drops every 8 hours till it resolves.
