Botox is one of the most effective treatments for patients with Bell's palsy, partial facial paralysis and synkinesis.
Please read our report/ pres release on Botox and it's effects in Bell's Palsy treatment
Botox has been a mainstay treatment for patients with synkinesis, partial facial paralysis and bell’s palsy for the past two decades. Botox is a protein derived from botulinum toxin. It relaxes unwanted muscle movements on the normal side of the face and reduces tension in areas of the face that are hyperactive due to synkinesis.
At the Facial Paralysis Insitute, Botox is utilized to address asymmetric facial movement in a novel manner to create a more symmetrical facial movement and reduce the signs of facial paralysis and synkinesis. Botox is most commonly utilized with neuromuscular retraining that will be performed by an experienced physical therapist.
For more information about the use of Botox, please contact the Facial Paralysis Institute in Beverly Hills, California.
