TikToker Nikita Kimberly shared her story of botox gone wrong in a very frank video.
The woman, who posts on social media with the handle @corpsegirly, explained how her attempt to rid herself of a chin dimple went awry.
She’s now left with a crooked face and even a lisp as the botox didn’t work as she’d hoped.
In the short clip, Nikita said: “Welcome to my botox horror story.”
“I got botox in my chin because I had a muscle that was working a bit too hard so whenever I smiled I had a dent in my chin.”
“And the botox went and got into this side of my face. And as you can hear sometimes I have a lisp now because I’m biting my lip as I talk.”
The TikToker – who regularly posts about lip filler and injectables – gestured to one side of her face demonstrating that it had been affected by the work.
She went on to explain: “As long as I don’t talk or smile with my mouth open I look fine. But once I smile or talk, my whole face looks crooked.”
“And I didn’t use to have this. My smile used to be symmetrical, not at all. Don’t get botox please.”
Nikita uploaded her video with the comment: “Please don’t ever get botox you do not know where your body will take it.”
One person commented that it should dissolve away.
Fabulous spoke expert Rupesh Shah, from London Lip Clinic, who said: “A dimpled chin can be smoothed by injecting up to 4 units of Botox to relax the chin muscles and control the puckering of the chin.”
“It appears in this video that the Botox is affecting more than the intended targeted chin muscle, hence why the patient’s face has become more crooked.”
“The reason for this is that the solution diffused into the adjacent muscle, which is either due to inaccurate targeting or if the practitioner diluted the product too much.”
“To avoid this from happening, ensure you use a qualified and experienced practitioner to conduct the procedure, as they will know where they need to target and how much to dilute the product.
“This procedure is generally risk-free, with the main side-effects occurring just after the procedure has taken place. It is unfortunate, but Botox is not a permanent solution and will wear off in around 5 months.”
