Facial Paralysis after Botox

This is the affect of poor Botox placement. Botox works by paralyzing the muscles. There is no way to reverse Botox. You have to wait till it wears off in 3-4 months. If you have Botox done again make sure you see a experienced physician.

Facial paralysis after Botox

These symptoms are due to poor injection technique and there is no way to reverse it so it has to wear off and may take as long as 4 months. if you have it done again make sure you are seeing an experienced and qualified physician

Facial paralysis after Botox

 Facial paralysis: Botox paralyzes muscles and likely caused your facial weakenss. I have also seen Botox cause generalized feelings of illness/weakness, albeit very rarely. But other more serious conditions cause facial paralysis also. In light of your feelings of weakness you should consult a physician to rule out other causes of facial weakness.

Botox and facial paralysis

I'm not sure why you had the Botox treatment. was it for jaw pain or the jaw pain developed after the injection? your face is weakened because you asked someone to inject Botox into it. Botox is designed to paralyze muscles. We don't know the amount injected or technique use or experience of the injector.

Facial paralysis after Botox

This is just poor placement of Botox. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to improve the situation. The Botox will have to wear off in 3-4 months for everything to return to normal.
