Many people have heard about Botox on TV or in movies but it’s always better to learn about the procedure if you are considering Botox in Melbourne, Florida.
When you are trying to decide whether Botox is right for you ask yourself what you are hoping this procedure will do for you. Botox can help horizontal forehead lines, vertical brow creases, crow’s feet, as well as prominent vertical bands in the neck. If you are looking to fix any of those problems then Botox may be the right treatment for you.
You should not experience swelling after Botox injections; however, some first time users do experience this. If this is the case for you, swelling should subside within 2 weeks following your injections. It is very important to contact our office and let us know if you are experiencing any symptoms after the injections. You may also find relief with a cold compress.
Swelling is usually not an allergic reaction to Botox around the eyelids. It can be from sagging of the eyebrows which pushes more skin down around the upper eyelid area or if Botox is injected in the lower eyelids to minimize bulkiness, the pump action may slow down and fluid retention can occur, especially in those individuals who are prone to puffiness.
Call our office at 321.727.3223 to schedule an appointment. We would love to meet with you and discuss the best treatment options available to you.
