Medical Uses for BOTOX® Cosmetic

Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Philadelphia & Bryn Mawr

People are not aware that BOTOX® Cosmetic is also commonly used to treat blepharospasm (excessive blinking, twitching of the eyes). Treatment with BOTOX® will allow these patients to more easily keep their eyes open. Medical Botox for Blepharospasm is a muscle disorder that causes involuntary spasms of the muscles around your eye. These spasms can result in uncontrolled narrowing or closing of your eyelid. This could impair your vision, and make everyday tasks such as driving or using a computer difficult. If you experience any of these symptoms, you could have blepharospasm:
  • Dry eyes or watering eyes
  • Light sensitivity
  • Increased blinking
  • Ocular pain
  • Soreness
Your doctor will diagnose blepharospasm based on your symptoms. As Medical Botox progresses, blinking usually becomes more frequent, forceful, and uncontrollable. Bright lights, noise, stress, polluted air, or wind can make your symptoms worse. Without treatment, you will probably not experience an improvement in your condition. Since this is a medical condition, it is covered by most insurances. Physicians have been using Botox to treat this condition successively for over 20 years. Philadelphia cosmetic surgeon Dr. John Lee has a loyal following of medical Botox patients who receive regular treatment for blepharospasm. For additional information, please see BOTOX® Questions. If you have questions or are ready to schedule an appointment to discuss your need for medical BOTOX® treatments, please contact Dr. John Lee today.
