What do I do about a Dysport mistake?

I just had Dysport injections a few days ago. Both of my brows are considerably lower, and both eyelids are droopy as well. Although that is a problem in itself, the more important situation, is my right eyelid is drooping so much that it is covering my eye! My neighbor said it looks like I've had a stroke! Is there anything at all that I can do to reverse this and if not, how long will I have to suffer with it?

Okay – I don’t want to sound like a nag but…….. have you called your doctor???  He/she is the person who needs to hear about this!   And, yes there are things to help you with this while the Dsyport wears off including prescription eye drops to help keep the eye open better.  If the doctor who did your injections doesn’t know about this option, please seek a second opinion from a board certified dermatologist in your area who practices cosmetic and medical dermatology. Here is some more information on Dysort Mistakes and How to Fix Them (Look about half-way down at True Eyelid Droop.)  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
