Botox type injections into static frown lines caused major droopy eye lids. I suppose that ultherapy or peleve would do the same for my whole face?
Options to treat: Lid ptosis from Botox A occurs when the botox crosses the tarsal plate in the upper lid and inhibits the lid lifting muscles or because you are using your forehead muscles to lift the lids and Botox reduces the lift. Ulthera and Peleve can be used to lift lids. Topical treatments are available. I would revisit whoever did the Botox for treatment of the lid ptosis. Or get a second opinion. ...Read more

Time: It is common due to the biology of the tissues for some Botox to diffuse a little more (sometimes less) in areas where the effect is not wanted. There is no way to reverse this but Botox naturally loses its effectiveness in these areas over several days to weeks. Your droopiness will disappear without help. ...Read more
Botox for ptosis: I do not recommend using Botox in this case, as it will relax the muscles that are keeping your lids open, which will result in worse ptosis. I would instead suggest seeing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for possible eyelid surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
