What is the dosage of Botox injection for Blepharospasm?


The Dr. gave me an injection for Blepharospasm. She started out with 30 units and told me it could be adjusted. How can I know if it needs to be adjusted? What am I looking for to happen or not happen? What information will she need from me to be able to tell?


Ideally, the doctor will be looking for your blepharospasm to be corrected completely and for facial symmetry without complications such as eyelid or brow drooping. I usually wait 1 to 2 weeks to reevaluate to ascertain whether you need further treatment.
