9 days ago I had botox in my crows feet, my forehead, and my jaw muscles (to treat TMJ).
When I woke up this morning, I couldn't smile. My mouth widens and opens but it doesn't go up at the corners at all and my cheeks don't move; my mouth just sort of stretches across my face. I look like I am grimacing or like I have had a stroke of some sort.
Normally I love botox. However, in that my smile now looks like an animal in the wild showing its teeth at an enemy, I'm not so thrilled. I am not sure if it is the TMJ injections or the crow's feet injections, but something is very wrong.Which of the injections might have caused this? Is there a possible way to correct it? Is it normal for it to take so long for the botox to work? Usually it takes full effect within 4-5 days. Is there anything I can do to hasten the metabolization of the botox? I look very, very strange.
I love the doctor I normally go to, but his nurse did it this time.
