Bell's Palsy Prognosis
Bell's palsy usually goes away by itself without treatment. Most people begin recovery in 2 to 3 weeks, with 70% to 85% of people showing complete recovery in 2 to 3 months. There is a 10% recurrence rate. Those who are at a higher risk of not getting completely better are often older and those who have a slow recovery from symptoms.
