Botox gone wrong? Is this permanent? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 13
Fortunately, this is not permanent. Botox wears off. This is very unfortunate and unexpected side effects or adverse reactions can occur when injecting Botox. It is always wise to follow up with the provider who treated you. Hang in there.
Thank you for your question, I concur with the previous answers. The effects of botox will wear off within 4-5 months. I would however make a return visit to see the person who injected you. Hope this helps.
Nothing with botox is permanent.
However, the 4 to 6 months it will take to have this service wear off will seem like it is forever. Hang in there, it will wear off. Consider looking for a Microdroplet Lift treatment in the future which is a balanced treatment that looks very natural.

Are these Botox changes permanent?
Thank you for your question and photos. Rest assured none of the changes associated with Botox (good or bad) are permanent and will subside typically in 3-4 months. Based on your description of the injection and the photo this indeed appears to be swelling and most likely a hematoma secondary to the injections in that area. This will subside.
Botox side effect
nothing from Botox is permanent so it will even out but why did you go to a different doctor after good results? Go back to your original doctor but if you cannot be sure you see a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon
Swelling in nasal area after Botox
There was a vessel hit in this injection and I'm sorry this happened to you. The swelling is not permanent and will subside in the next week or 2. This represents a bruise or hematoma from the injection.
You have a hematoma
You probably have a hematoma. The injector likely hit a blood vessel and there is bruising and swelling. It should resolve but will take some time.
Looks like a small vein was sheared, which caused some bruising and swelling. Rest assured, this should gradually resolve in the coming weeks. Ice, elevation, arnica, bromelein, and time will help. Be sure your new doctor is a board certified core physician (facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, or dermatologist).
I have had some patients develop minor bruising at the site of injection but not as extreme as yours. Some patients are more prone if they took a blood thinner like aspirin or an NSAID in the past few days.
It appears that you have swelling from hitting a deep vein in that area and it is unfortunate. The effects may last a few weeks or a month but should resolve on its own. Best, Dr. Green
