Why did Juvederm paralyze my smile/lip?
By ventaris on 20 Mar 2010
Why did juvederm paralyze my facial nerve after injection in my upper left lip only? I have been to 6 doctors and waiting for 2 more consults. The nerve damage is permanent based on EMG ...also note the MRI shows NOTHING pressing on 7th cranial facial nerve nor does it show damage. However i am paralyzed on left side of face and my smile is deformed now...was it due to ischemic necrosis? Or an allergic reaction to the Strep Equi Bacteria (Streptococcus group A is of course the flesh eating bacteria)...could it be that Strep Equi caused this reaction?
