Botox Eye Treatment

Botox CosmeticBlepharospasm and hemifacial spasm are conditions which are dramatically improved with Botox. Blepharospasm is an involuntary closure of the eyelids, which, when severe, prevents the patient from opening her eyes. In milder forms, patients notice excessive blinking and episodes of difficulty opening their eyes. For all these patients, we are happy to provide Botox for their relief. The protein, when properly placed in the eyelids, provides relief to these patients for approximately 3 months. Because this treatment is not cosmetic, most insurance companies and Medicare provide full coverage for this procedure.

Hemifacial spasm is a spasm, as the name implies, of half the face, and typically involves the eyelids and corner of the mouth. It is typically due to compression of a branch of the facial nerve by a blood vessel. Botox provides symptomatic relief for these patients and is also covered by their insurance company.

Botox is also used extensively by the physicians at Stahl for treatment of rhytids (wrinkles) and frown lines. Lines on the face can be caused by either muscular contractions or by how the face anatomy is draped. For those lines caused by an underlying muscular contraction, Botox weakens the underlying muscle and diminishes or eliminates the lines it was causing. The best examples involve frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines caused by contraction of the forehead musculature, and crow’s feet.

Dr. Werner has over 25 years experience injecting Botox for both cosmetic and functional concerns.  With his extensive experience, he can tailor a treatment plan that’s perfect for you. Contact Stahl Eyecare Experts today to discuss your options.
