Is this a permanent crooked smile? (photo)
3 months ago
I had a chemical peel with a high frequency machine 9 days ago and experienced facial paralysis of my lower left lip which is affecting my smile, it has improved but I haven't seen any improvements in days. What can be done, is this going last forever?

These can take many weeks to fully recover.
Try not to be too discouraged at this point. 9 days is a very short period of time for a motor nerve injury. These truly take many weeks to resolve. Please consider posting in 8 weeks and let us know how you are doing. Don't have this procedure again.
