Hemifacial spasm is treated with a range of options tailored to the severity of symptoms and individual patient factors.

Medical teams treat hemifacial spasm with medications like anticonvulsants or botulinum toxin injections for temporary relief, while microvascular decompression surgery offers a more permanent solution by relieving pressure on the facial nerve. Other options include surgical techniques, physical therapy, and psychological support, with treatment decisions made collaboratively to minimise spasms and improve quality of life.

The overarching goal is to minimise muscle spasms, enhance functionality, and alleviate associated discomfort and psychological distress.

Facial Pain

In cases of nerve-related facial pain, treatments like nerve blocks, botulinum toxin injections, or surgical procedures such as microvascular decompression may be considered to relieve pressure on affected nerves.

Additionally, physical therapy, acupuncture, or psychological therapies may be recommended to complement medical treatments and improve pain management. Treatment decisions are individualised and may involve a multidisciplinary approach, with the goal of reducing pain and improving the patient's quality of life.
