    I was 20 years old and I had facial paralysis when I was 12 years old.I drank very little cortisone because I was young, although I received physical therapy, I did not fully recover, and after a while I learned that he had synkinesis, I still received physical therapy, but there was no improvement in my face, although it was not clear at first sight. There is a very certain squinting while making facial expressions while laughing, there is a curvature in the mouth and asymmetry in the face I saw in your video that this could be a treatment, I wonder about the price information and the treatment process, I would be very happy if you answer them.
