What is Blepharospasm?

Blepharospasm is an abnormal, involuntary, sustained, and forceful closure or twitching of the eyelids. This can result in dryness or irritation and can lead to some discomfort in the eye. These spasms are generally not isolated, and patients tend to have them in more than one location such as the lower face, neck, mid-face, etc.

Treatment Can Help

  • Relax involuntary and sustained twitching of the eyelids or facial muscles
  • Reduce the intensity of migraines or headaches
  • Relieve some of the discomfort caused by abnormal and forceful spasms

How is the Treatment Performed?

Botox, which is a neurotoxin, works by relaxing the muscles within the treated area. Injection sites are first sterilized with an alcohol wipe. The treatment is a series of a few quick injections of Botox inserted into the spasming areas. Patients can resume most activities immediately after treatment and start to get relief within a few days of the injections.
