Should one side of my face look paralyzed after Botox?
THIS IS NOT A GOOD RESULT! I know I don’t need to tell you this. If your mouth isn’t moving normally, it’s almost always because your provider injected in an area around the lower edge of the crows feet that was too far over toward the nose. There are several muscles there that attach at the corner of the mouth and help to lift it. So when you talk or smile your mouth won’t move normally. Please, please go back to your doctor and show him/her the result. And, PLEASE, don’t tell me you went to a medispa, unless there is a dermatologist or plastic surgeron on site full time. Also, a condition called Bell’s palsy can cause a facial droop and have nothing to do with the Botox. Be sure you see your doctor. Dr. I
