Botox side effects?

Repeat botox injections
Re the inability to yawn easily, remember that Botox is used for cosmetic purposes precisely to immobilize nerve impulses from reaching selected facial muscles so the skin can relax, smoothing facial lines and wrinkles in affected areas. This numbness is a common side effect, as well as some swelling, bruising or tingling in the affected area.
Botox with a different doctor
Thank you for your question nadasakr. Botox is a great treatment to address various wrinkles associated with facial expression. Each injector has his/her own technique and results may vary from one doctor to another doctor. I recommend following up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

It is hard to give you an accurate assessment without seeing photos and evaluating you in person. However, the injector may have placed Botox around the nose to address bunny lines or help elevate the tip of the nose. I commonly perform both injections and can't explain the fact that you are having difficult yawning. I would followup with your injector for an in-person consultation and to discuss your concerns. Finally, I recommend that you find an injector that you like and that you are happy with and continue to see that injector for your Botox results. This allows the physician to get to know you and the results you are looking for. This will lead to much a better and consistent Botox experience each time.

From your description it is possible that one of the nerves innervating that area was involved. Please consult a specialist in Botox for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
