Dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections can definitely help with facial asymmetry!
Basically everyone is asymmetrical. It is also natural to be asymmetrical. However, if asymmetries are very prominent, we can help achieve a more symmetrical face by adding dermal fillers and relaxing muscles with anti-wrinkle injections. Dermal fillers add volume to the face and are great for injecting cheeks, lips, chin and jawline. Often, I see patient’s who sleep on one particular side. Often, this causes the side they sleep on to become ‘flat’. Depending on how asymmetrical the sides of the face are, it sometimes takes as much as 2-3 times the amount of filler than the ‘fuller’ side. It is not predictable how much filler will be needed to correct, and may never completely correct 100%, but we can do our best to improve the deficit side.
Some patients muscles are also stronger on one side, compared to the other. This could be a natural cause, or it could also be from a condition such as Bell’s Palsy. This is a condition where the muscles on one side of the face are weakened. A very experienced injector may use ant-wrinkle injections to treat the other side of the face, creating a more symmetrical look.
Remember, it is natural to the human eye to be somewhat asymmetrical. Here is a link where a photographer mirrored a portrait photo, creating a double right and double left side of the face. As you can see, the people look a little strange when they are completely symmetrical. https://mymodernmet.com/alex-john-beck-both-sides-of/
