Forty-six consecutive adult patients with facial spasm were treated with one or more Botulinum toxin (Oculinum) injections to control muscle spasm. During the follow-up period of 6.6 months (one week-12 months), 27 patients required retreatment with a mean time interval of 3.4 months between treatments. Control of facial spasm was achieved in all patients. Complications included occasional bruising around the injection site and a transient blepharoptosis in one patient. No systemic effect was observed. This preliminary report suggests that treatment with Botulinum toxin (Oculinum) is an acceptable alternative to surgical management in select patients.
