droopy eyelid after botox

I am aware that the possibility of drooping eyelids can occur after botox between the eyebrows. If this does happen, how long will the drooping last? Does it become apparent immediately, can it begin to show up months after the treatment. Thanks to all.

Re: droopy eyelid after botox

A droopy eyelid can happen with a unqualified injector, it doesn't usually happen between the eyebrows more in the mid to outer area of the eyebrow. The doctors inject just under the eyebrow in that area and it creates an eyebrow lift but if they do it wrong it can create a drooping eyebrow. Botox starts to work on the 3rd day after injection but it's full effect is around 7-10 days. That's when, if it was done wrong, you'd get a droopy eyebrow. It would maybe last 3 weeks and then should be back to normal.. Botox overall lasts 3 months but can last in some people 6 months. If you go to a qualified doctor who's trained in placement of injections this problem shouldn't arrise.

Thanks for the help. Actually my eyebrow isn't drooping, it's my eyeLID. Looks like my left eye is about half-mast compared to the right one. (not that severe, but you get the picture). Anyway, I did have a dermatologist do it in February. It seems I mostly have noticed this droop in the summer. So apparently it isn't connected to the botox. Now I'm left to wonder what it is!! Thanks again.
