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.
