My 22 daughter just received Botox for her hemifacial spasm and her face is asymmetrical. What can she do?

Botox for facial asymmetry and hemifacial spasm
Attempting to balance asymmetry with Botox can be challenging and may require some adjustment. Keeping exact records and photographs in order to provide historical basis for additional treatments is wise. I think whether both sides are treated initially is a judgment call and certainly you should have confidence in your doctors judgment. If not, find another doctor but I advise against bouncing around from doctor to doctor. After an injection is done it can change for up to 10 days to two weeks therefore this is the time I recommend consideration of tweaking.
