Thank you for your question brittben. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression In the lower face a small amount of Botox can be placed in the mentalis muscle on the chin to address dimpling there. Most people see the results of their Botox treatment in 3-7 days after the treatment, but it could take up to two weeks for full results. The pivotal studies demonstrated that the peak effect of Botox is seen 14 days after the treatment. Patience is important. Please consult with a doctor for specific
recommendations. Good luck!
Unless the Botox was very dilute requiring a large volume of injection, it would not be common for it to be forming a bubble the next day. The Botox also shouldn't be having an effect this soon after treatment. It could represent local trauma to the muscle from the needle injection causing this effect. Other than time there probably isn't a good way to make it go away quickly. You should start seeing the effects of Botox about 3 days after treatment and reaching maximum effect by about 7-10 days. In the future you can consider a lower dose or a more concentrated dose if your injector feels this really is related to the volume of injection.
I hope this helps and good luck.
This could be a temporary appearance of the volume of Botox that was injected. Contraction of the muscles in the chin may cause slight irregularities as only part of the muscle fibers have relaxed, while others remain "awake". Sometimes, leading to swelling and leaving a visibile "bubble" on the surface of the skin. You should be able to see the final results at 10 to 14 days post injection. I suggest consulting with an expert who can better assess the area treated, and to rule out any issues. Best, Dr. Emer
Hello, I would recommend seeing your Plastic surgeon for evaluation... if its a fluid collection...then your PS could aspirate the fluid. If its irregular placement of botox causing muscles to make the irregularity...then more botox spread around the area should soften the irregularity. Good Luck.
It seems like you may have not had complete and symmetric paralysis of the chin muscles. Please see your plastic surgeon for more information.
The swelling in your chin is likely from the injections. Ice for the first day or two can help. After that some warm compresses can bring in circulation to speed resolution of any swelling.
Massage and pressure can also mold swelling.
Botox can be injected int he chin to smooth the dimples created with facial animation. The injection process could be associated with bruising, swelling and possible small fluid accumulations at the site of infection. Ice pack therapy is usually recommended to address these post injection issues
Thank you for your question and photograph. In most cases when Botox is injected appropriately it is absorbed by the body within a few hours. Occasionally swelling after the injections may persist for a day. Nothing replaces an in-person examination, but I would recommend cool compresses or ice packs to reduce the swelling and encourage resolution of the bubble.
