Bell’s Palsy is the result of damage to the facial nerve usually following a viral infection. The majority of people recover; however, there remains a significant number of people who have partial or full paralysis of their facial muscles.

In addition to the decreased movement of the muscles on the affected side, people who suffer from Bell’s Palsy may find a compensatory increase of activity in the unaffected muscles. People with Bell’s Palsy often suffer from social anxiety. Botox® is used to decrease the overactive muscles while dermal filler can be injected underneath the weakened muscles to act as support for the muscle and provide volumization for the atrophy.

Affected areas:
Face, including eyes, cheeks, mouth, jaw, jawline, and chin.
