Facial Numbness after botox

The numbness that you are experiencing is not related to the botox.  It is best to follow up with your family doctor and have a work up.

Facial numbness

Are you numb over your entire face? If so it is not related to the Botox injection to your forehead. You may want to visit your primary care physician to be evaluated for other causes. Sometimes there can be pain and rarely numbness around the area of the Botox injection, but this usually resides after 24-48 hours.
