After botox injection my eyes swelled up, need second opinion?

I received a botox injection 3 days ago. Soon after my eyes swelled up terrible. Botox injection was given in a SPA. I am worried. They say it is normal. Is this normal? When will my eyes come back normal? How long will the Botox stay in my face?

Age: 45

Botox swelling around the eyes can occur in a small percentage of patients. It is due to infection, reaction or lymphatic reaction to the Botox. It should last for about 2 to 4 weeks and resolve by itself. If swelling persists you should consult. In general, Botox effects will wear out after 3 to 4 months. Nerves and muscles return to normal (pre Botox) after that period.
