Masseter injection affected the smile
Sounds like the botox is in the wrong spot
Hi Sarute48,It sounds like the botox may have gotten into the zygomaticus muscles on the cheeks. This can happen if the botox is a little bit in front of the masseter muscle. I don't think that the massaging is going to do anything to help. Botox relaxes muscles so the idea of trying to relax them more with a probe seems illogical.I think 3 months makes sense for when it will get better. You can try to force yourself to smile as much as possible as this will strengthen the still working muscles and may speed up your recovery somewhat.In the future, make sure that the botox is going in low near the angle of your jawbone. Good luck!
