Hemifacial spasm treatment

If you suffer from hemifacial spasm, you may benefit from a treatment that involves injecting the affected, overactive facial muscles with low doses of botulinum toxin. This hemifacial spasm treatment typically needs to be repeated every three to four months.

In some cases, when injections are not effective and an obvious cause can be found (such as a blood vessel pressing on a nerve), surgery can be performed as a hemifacial spasm treatment to relieve the pressure of the facial nerve.
