Botox can be used for medical purposes or even cosmetic purposes. Yes, it helps soften fine lines and wrinkles that occur in the forehead and around the eyes. It can also be used for medical reasons, if patients have eyelid spasms (also known as blepharospasm) that prevent them from holding their eyelids open. If someone has what’s called a hemifacial spasm, where the muscles in the one side of the face spasm and the face twitches, Botox can be used to help relax the muscles and minimize spasms. Botox can be covered under insurance to help treat some of those issues.
