What Is Medical Botox?

Chances are, you've heard of Botox. These simple, safe botulinum toxin injections help to smooth over wrinkles and fine lines by calming overactive muscles under the skin, making it a popular cosmetic skin treatment. However, in addition to cosmetic applications, our office offers medical Botox for a variety of facial spasms and conditions. In medical Botox, we use the same injections but to calm muscles that are spasming involuntarily, helping patients reduce symptoms and achieve a better quality of life. 

What Is a Blepharospasm?

One of the most common applications for medical Botox is to treat blepharospasms. A blepharospasm is a type of facial spasm that causes the eyes to involuntarily close. In the early stages of the condition, blepharospasms may present as involuntary blinking or squinting of the eyes. Over time, though, the condition can progress, causing more frequent spasms and potentially forcing the eyes shut. 

What Causes Blepharospasms?

Unfortunately, doctors still don't understand what causes blepharospasms. Research has found that blepharospasms are most common in women and in people over the age of 40, but the reason for these associations isn't known. It doesn't appear that there are any measures patients can take to prevent or slow the onset of blepharospasms – but thankfully, medical Botox can provide relief.   

Medical Botox Treatment for Blepharospasms in Birmingham

At our Birmingham eye clinic, we can use Botox injections to treat blepharospasms. But injecting small amounts of Botox into the muscles around the eyes, we can weaken these muscles, preventing them from spasming and reducing restoring normal vision. Botox injections aren't permanent, so we'll need to repeat the treatment every few months for continuous protection – but with regular medical Botox, we can prevent blepharospasms and give you back your normal eye function.

Cosmetic Botox in Birmingham

Medical Botox can provide relief from hemifacial spasms – but if you're interested in cosmetic Botox to smooth over wrinkles and fine lines, we can help with that as well! At our clinic, we believe that everyone deserves to feel great about the way they look, and we're proud to offer cosmetic Botox treatment. Dr. Callahan has comprehensive experience in using Botox to smooth wrinkles in the forehead, glabella area (the skin between the eyebrows), around the mouth, and crow's feet.
