Woman Now Has a Lisp after Getting Toxin to Even out Her Smile

TikTok user Nikita Kimberly dealt with a self-described "Botox fail" last year, and she's posting about her experience so other young people know the risks.

Kimberly said she received Botox in September 2021 to lessen the appearance of a dent on her chin when she smiled. 

About three days later, Kimberly told Insider, she noticed her "face turned crooked" as the Botox had migrated to a muscle that it was not intended for, moving from her chin toward the left side of her mouth. She says she looked in the mirror to find an uneven smile and a lisp.
