Could Regular Botox Injections to the Jaw Permanently Affect My Smile?
I have had Dysport injected into my jaw on 2 occasions and both times I experienced diffusion/spread into my mouth muscles, reesulting in an inability to smile fully (it looked like a sneer and mouth corner would not curl up) This obviously wore off after the botox did, BUT my question is: if I have the jaw botox regularly and we know botox over time will atrophy muscles, will it not end up causing permanenet problems in my smile too, since the product is every time diffusing into these areas?
Dose of Dysport to Dysport is variable
Botox used for hypertrophic masseter muscles in the cheek
Botox, in my humble opinion, diffuses less than Dysport and might be a better option for you
