Will Botox help with uneven smile/ nasolabial folds? I like the left side of my face, it is very natural default and natural when smiling, with a nice, sharp angle and shallow nasolabial fold. My right side on the other hand, goes wild and often exaggerates the lip and smile fold. This difference is also apparent without smiling, on default facial expression. Is there anything that can help? And how much is botox usually? Around $400 per injection or unit? That part confuses me.

Botox to help with asymmetry around mouth
Yes, Botox can help with this, but you must seek injections from a well-qualified physician injector. While we always recommend that, in cases like this, where the mouth area is being injected, it's extremely important. Poor injections can result in you having problems talking, speaking, eating, etc. and those can last for months while the Botox wears off. So seek a physician. Pricing for Botox can either be done by the unit, or by the area; it depends on the office.
Botox for uneven smile
this is certainly a recognised use of facial botox injections. Your concerns are the "gummy smile" particularly evident on the right hand side. Injection of a few units of botox or dysport into the levator labii superioris on this side will even it out nicely. Find a local board certified facial plastic or general plastic surgeon.
