Botox Under Your Eyes Side Effects
While Botox may help with bags and wrinkles under your eyes, the injections aren’t without risks. Temporary effects such as droopy eyelids and fat bulges near the injection site are possible. You may also experience mild pain shortly after the injections.
Other possible side effects of Botox injections include:
- swelling (usually right around the injection site)
- temporary muscle weakness
- tears or hollowness under the eyes
There’s also the possibility of more serious side effects from Botox. Talk to your doctor about these rare side effects:
- blurry/double vision
- breathing difficulties
- changes in your voice, such as hoarseness
- facial asymmetry
- incontinence (bladder control issues)
- loss of muscle use in the face
- swallowing difficulties
If you experience any of these symptoms after a Botox injection, call your doctor immediately. A severe reaction to the injections could cause allergy or asthma-like symptoms, such as hives and wheezing.
Also, Botox is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing. It’s unclear how the injections may affect your baby.
