I agree that the Botox of fillers has changed your smile. At this point I would wait for the Botox to dissolve in several months. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

Sorry to hear about your experience. Your smile has certainly been affected by your Botox treatment. It is not common to inject Botox near your nose like that which is most likely the reason your smile has been affected so much. I am not sure why your injector would inject you with filler and then try to do a treatment to soften it. That means you were over injected so hopefully you are not being charged for your new treatment. The more effective treatment for being over filled is to dissolve your filler with another injection and start the process over. And neither heat nor other treatments will make the result of your Botox go away faster. It will take about 3 months for this to improve as the Botox wears off.
There are a lot of things that don't sound right about your treatment and the after care. I would recommend you follow up with a physician injector from one of the core aesthetic fields (facial plastic surgery, plastic surgery, dermatology) to assess what was done and what should be done now.
I hope this helps and good luck.
Unfortunately, with Botox, you just have to wait until it wears off. Hopefully it will correct in a couple months. If not, then you might need some filler removed as well.

Results will improve from the Botox and fillers
Most likely this is from the Botox injected near the nose. Sometimes it can affect the muscles responsible for smiling and fortunately this should improve over the next 4 to 6 weeks and the effects of Botox should be completely gone by 3 months. In terms of fillers, there are only two options, One is to wait and most fillers do start to dissipate within 6 to 9 months with the exception of Voluma which can last a little bit longer. The other options is to have it dissolved away with the enzyme hyalurodinase.
My opinion is that you wait until the Botox goes away and I feel there will be restoration of the normal smile
Best of luck
