There are a variety of strategies for neurotoxin injections (Botox or Dysport) for synkinesis associated with facial paralysis and requires a thorough understanding of the underlying facial musculature. I would recommend finding a local facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who has experience taking care of patients with facial paralysis. You may also benefit from some facial therapy with a local speech or physical therapist who works with facial paralysis patients. Good luck!
How can I find a doctor in my area who is experienced in the administration of Botox to someone with Synkinesis?

Botox for synkinesis
Thank you for your question Kalee70. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. Synkinesis is a neurological condition affecting muscles. I recommend searching for a neurologist in your area. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
