Can you explain why when Kim Kardashian had botox done (under eye area) it made her look like someone had beat her up? Does this happen often? I have never had botox done and was considering having it done under the eye area but after seeing that episode it has put me off.

Hi Sunshine, thank you for the question.

The main indications for Botox treatment in the lower lid is to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and to give a more open eye appearance. Not 100% sure what you mean by “it made her look like someone had beat her up” (did you notice swelling, bruising, etc?) but typically one should not visibly notice any change immediately following Botox treatment in this area (except for very small bumps which disappear within 20 to 40 minutes).
In these types of reality shows the use of the word Botox is often interchanged with filler treatments which if performed under the eye area may produce significant swelling and bruising especially if the doctor is inexperienced in this area or is just too rough with their injecting technique.
