I had 25 units of dysport injected into my masster muscle 10 days ago and today I woke up and cant smile on left side of my n face. I also feel numbness all along the left side of my face. will this get any worse? Is there a chance this will effect my smile permanently? Also is it normal that my face hurts and gets tired when talking?

Abnormal smile after masseter injection will resolve to normal after 3-4 months
Dysport/Botox for masseter reduction
Dysport will last for 3-4 months in the treated muscle. If your asymmetry is from improper injection, then it should improve as the Dysport loses activity. Follow up with your physician, as the facial pain, numbness and pattern of your asymmetry is a bit atypical and should be further evaluated.
