Cheek swelling after Botox and Laser tx
While your swelling is most likely related to laser treatment, As you are having a problem shortly after a procedure was performed I encourage you to contact the physician who performed your treatment to get a recommendation for your best options.
Swelling from Botox vs. Laser
The swelling in your cheeks is likely from the laser treatment and not from the Botox. It is unlikely for Botox to cause a large amount of swelling. I would recommend icing the area as much as possible. It will improve with time. Best of luck to you!
This is definitely due to swelling from the laser treatment. You do not have herniation of the orbital fat pads. Although you may have read about pseudo-herniation of the orbital fat pads due to Botox, after nearly 20 years of experience with Botox, I have never seen this complication.
Sweeling under eyes after laser/botox
this is often due to KTP treatment which can leave swelling for 2-3 weeks if done very aggressive. I would have some patiences, take Arnika Forte, and use ice packs and head elevation. If you are concerned, please see your physician . Best, Dr. Emer.
It appears that you are having swelling from the laser procedure. You can take an antihistamine or ice the area and it should help the swelling resolve. The V-Beam usually works best for facial rosacea and does not cause this swelling. Best, Dr. Green
Botox does not take effect this quickly- I do not think the botox cause this type of swelling. The swelling is most likely due to the laser treatment. We suggest that our patients sleep elevated after laser treatments to minimize swelling.
Botox would not cause this and certainly it is too fast for anything that Botox might be responsible for. the laser is the most likely cause and it should go away in a few days
Swelling after laser and injections
In general, Botox injections may cause immediate swelling at the site but it quickly resolves. Laser treatments induce inflammation with subsequent swelling but the good news is this resolves quickly. Take care
I doubt that the Botox has caused any of the swelling since so little would have been injected. However, KTP laser treatment on the cheeks could definitely result in some edema which will subside over the next 10-14 days. You can apply ice compresses to the area for the first 48 hrs ( 20 min of every hour while awake) followed by warm compresses 3-4x's/d for a week as necessary. Elevating your head at nite can also help.
I have swelling under my eyes and on my cheeks(cheekbones). How do I know if it is from Botox or from laser treatmen
My over the internet guess is the KTP laser is the culprit!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
