Caring for Hemifacial Spasms With Advanced Treatments
We offer surgical and non-surgical treatments that may provide relief from hemifacial spasm, including:
These medications are non-surgical options that can reduce the severity of your symptoms. Botox® treatment for hemifacial spasms may also be effective. This treatment involves injections that help relax affected muscles.
This is a type of minimally invasive hemifacial spasm surgery. By making a small incision behind the ear and removing a tiny piece of the skull, a surgeon can separate the veins and arteries from the nerve they’re compressing and place a special type of sponge between the nerve and blood vessel to relieve the pressure.
Your doctor will work with you to determine the treatment that’s best for you and your condition.
