After the Bell's palsy your nerves have got reconnected in a wrong way so that you have developed synkinesis. There are some medications which can partially paralyze the muscles of the face and reduce these movements. Of these Botulinum toxin injection is the most successful treatment. In addition facial muscles retraining can help. Botulinum toxin injection needs to be taken periodically under care of a specialist.
Good luck.
