If you are considering Botox Injections in Melbourne, Florida then our staff at the Clevens Face and Body Specialists for Facial Cosmetic Surgery wants you to know what to expect after you have had the injections. Generally, 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 to let them know your symptoms. In some cases, it may helpful if you are prescribed anti-inflammatory agents or eye drops to help the problem. You may also find relief with a cold compress.
The good news is that 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.
If you are interested in Botox Injections or any cosmetic surgery in Central Florida, 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.
