Can botox injections help get my drooping eyelid corrected permanently?If so what will  be the probable cost?

Probably not: Botox will temporarily relax a muscle. If the eyelid droops, you might need a ptosis repair. Please seek a consultation from an opthalmologist specializing in ptosis repair or a similarly qualified plastic surgeon. ...Read more

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?

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

Supposing you have persistent eyelid myokymia, can you get botox or even surgery?

Botox: Sometimes myokymia is so persistent that it is constantly annoying. A good first step is to have Botox injected which can quiet it down and sometimes break the cycle. Surgery would be a last resort as it would disturb the lid function. ...Read more

If you have persistent eyelid myokymia, is it okay to get botox or even have surgery?

Possibly: An accurate diagnosis before treatment is essential for success. See an ophthalmologist (preferrably a neurophthalmologist), as well as a neurologist if there are any associated symptoms. Botox may be very appropriate in some cases but as with all treatments there are potential risks (droopy eyelid, slow blink, etc). ...Read more

Lid myokymia: Eyelid myokymia [that is not due to dry eyes (tears do not stay on eye as they should & cause a perceived sense of dryness of eye; meibomian glands may be clogged for instance), stress, caffeine intake, lack of sleep] can be treated with botox (more common) or steroid injections.

Had 15 units Botox put in between brows 1 wk ago. Rt eyelid/brow feels heavier & seems slightly droopy now. Can anything be done to correct this?

Had 15 units Botox put in between brows 1 wk ago. Rt eyelid/brow feels heavier & seems slightly droopy now. Can anything be done to correct this?

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

Can I take botox for drooping upper eyelid (ptosis)?

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 more
