In brief: Unlikely

Botox slowly disappears from the area and the nerves go back to functioning normally afterwards.

Usually the effects of Botox cosmetic wears off in 3-4 months. So no it is not permanent.

In brief: Generally No

It weakens the muscle for a short period of time like 3-4 months.
generally does not affect the nerves.
