Bruising can definitely be a side effect of the botox injections. It is important to not take aspirin or aspirin containing products or any other blood thinners for several days before getting the injections as that can cause more bruising than normal. If your sister is on prescription blood thinners, she would need to check with her doctor regarding what to do.
You have a right to be concerned. I still don't understand the injections that were given on the inside of the lids. Anybody else ever had this done?

Hi Geri ... I have had similar bruising, but not quite to the extent you describe. As Shirley posted, your sister must not take aspirin or such OTC pills ten days prior to injections (Tylenol is okay). I take a prescription blood thinner called Ticlid and discovered on my own that I do much better and have less bruising and bleeding if I stop it at least a week-to-10-days prior. No doctor told me this, but when I mentioned it, the neurologist said I should have been doing that all along. Someone should have told me. We are not all-knowing as patients.
I do not understand the "inside the eyelid" injection. Do you mean that they roll back the eyelid and inject somewhere under it?
Hoping your sister is doing much better now.

But I personally prefer this to heat any day!
