Is there a nerve in your eyebrow that could paralyze your face if triggered?

No, not all the face: The facial nerve moves the face, and the branch to the forehead only goes by the eyebrow. So an injury near the brow could paralyze the forehead but not the whole face. ...Read more

Half of my face is paralyzed after getting a filling. When will this go away?

Half of my face is paralyzed after getting a filling. When will this go away?

See your doc!!: This would be a very rare complication of fillers. Was Botox injected as well? Was something injected deep near your ear? Do you have any movement? How long has it been?

For history/exam and another opinion. ...Read more

Injury to a nerve: Bell's palsy is due to an injury to the facial nerve which innervates the muscles of the face. In bell's palsy, the facial muscles lose their motor innervation and become paralyzed. This was probably due to an injury to the facial nerve when you received a novocaine injection. This paralysis will pass as the facial nerve heals. ...Read more
