A blepharospasm is an abnormal contraction or twitch of the eyelid or a muscle around the eye. Its origin is unknown, however stress, extreme constant fatigue or a particular irritant are considered to heighten the probability of this disorder.
The most popular treatment for this disorder is the treatment with botulinum toxin (botox, as an example) by injecting a small amount of the solution around the eyes. With regular use (an injection every three months), you can regain your peace and continue a normal, full life! We offer this treatment in our clinic.
Botulinum toxin has been shown to reduce pain in a number of disease states, including cervical dystonia, neuropathic pain, lower back pain, spasticity, myofascial pain, and bladder pain. When botox is used for chronic migraines, it is believed to inhibit the release of peripheral nociceptive neurotransmitters, which may then have a knock-on effect on the central pain processing systems that generate migraine headaches. With regular usage of this treatment, you can reduce up to 50% the number of headaches you feel each month.
