Facial nerve paralysis can cause spasms of muscles on the opposite side of the face making the asymmetry of the face even more prominent and causing a lot of discomfort for the patient. Masha Banar, PA-C, uses Botox and Dysport safely to balance the muscles, fix the asymmetry, and improve patient's quality of life.

Facial nerve paralysis can be transient (as in the case of Bell’s palsy or Lyme disease) or permanent (due to stroke or physical damage to the nerve). It results in deactivation of muscles of expressions on one side of the face. Very often contralateral side of the face starts making up for the lost balance and pulling with extra force. It often makes the asymmetry even more noticeable and results in a lot of discomfort for the patient while talking (link).

Synkinesis is another issue patients could deal with after facial nerve was damaged and starts regenerating incorrectly. It’s the condition when muscles of the affected side are out of sync and are forced to contract involuntary with odd timing (link).

Patients can have great relief of these disturbing symptoms with the help of products like Botox and Dysport. These neurotoxins relax the muscles that are pulling with extra force for several months and significantly improve patient’s quality of life.
