In brief: Facial palsy

Bell's palsy which is the injury of facial nerve that innervates the facial muscles can cause facial assymetry.
You need to check with your doctor for treatment.

In brief: Facial weakness

Facial weakness can come from problems with the muscles themselves or from the nerves (or brain) that innervates them. Conditions such as bell's palsy, tumors, or strokes can cause facial weakness.
