Answer

Although specific treatments are available for many craniofacial movement disorders, botulinum toxin (BTX) chemodenervation has proven useful in many of these disorders, supplanting surgery and medical therapy.

For patient education information, see the Procedures Center, as well as BOTOX® Injections.
