Botox for eyelid
twitching treatment
benefits

  • Alleviate persistent eyelid twitching

    Botox temporarily blocks certain nerve signals. It can be safely used to relax excessive muscle contraction, which helps to stop the spasms that cause persistent eyelid twitching.

  • Relief from blepharospasm

    Blepharospasm is a condition affecting how the eyelids blink. Patients with this condition experience involuntary spasms in the muscles that control their eyelids. This causes uncontrollable blinking, which generally affects both eyes.

    Blepharospasm can cause issues for everyday activities as it interferes with the patient’s ability to see. It can therefore affect the sufferer’s quality of life.

    Botox is a widely recognised treatment for blepharospasm.
