Can this Botox mistake be fixed?

I had botox on my forehead and the results were fantastic however, the np talked me into it for my marionette lines instead of restylin becaue they are tiny. One week later and one side of my lower lip is a bit paraylized and achy. Is there anything you know of to decrease this besides exercising the muscle?

No, unfortunately, you are stuck with this one until it wears off.  Trying to activate the muscles involved frequently may help a little. Please see my article on Botox Mistakes and How to Fix Them for more information. Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
