It sounds like Botox will help but I suggest you get a workup to see if anything serious is occurring. also, you are in an area where there are a great deal of great doctors and one of the first to use Botox is Dr. Richard Glogau in San Francisco.
Hi there, I hope you have had the chance to meet with a neurologist and/or dermatologist for evaluation. I am curious if the face twitches or just tightens and if your problem afects only one side of the face of both. I do agree you should have a work up before you consider how to treat this. I have seen patients with a vascular loop around their facial nerve present with problems similar to what you are describing on one side of the face only. Skin tightening can happen in some skin conditions and could affect both sides. Good luck.

Botox is not your solution at this time. suggest you see a neurologist fist to determine there are no medical issues. Then consider cosmetic options. Best, Dr. Emer.

It would be my recommendation that you speak with a neurologist first before you attempt to use any neuromodulators, such as Botox, for the condition you are describing. It may be necessary to work with a neurologist to better ascertain a diagnosis before you undergo cosmetic procedures.
