Botox around the eyes – I’m having a problem!
Thank you for reading and sharing the site with friends. I want it to be helpful!!!
So to reassure you, this will wear off. Usually if the Botox is being done for the first time in an area, and not too much was used, it will wear off in 2-3 months. Botox lasts longer with repeat visits up to a certain point (maximum usually about 4-6 months). This is because you are retraining the overactive muscle group to relax and it’s slightly weaker.
If the left side is swollen or puffy, please be sure you report this to your doctor and they may need to see you to check it. A “pressure feeling” is sometimes the result of excess fluid accumulation due to slightly less lymphatic drainage because the muscle action around the eye is less. Muscle action improves lymphatic drainage, in general. Again though, please report this to your doctor!
