At Facial Esthetics of Macomb, we offer cosmetic and therapeutic injectables for our Clinton Township patients. While products such as dermal fillers have long been recognized for their aesthetic enhancement, they also provide effective treatment for managing problems such as TMJ disorder (TMD.)
Are you starting to see signs of time’s wear on your skin? Deep creases, fine lines, and natural skin folds across your face can start to make you look older than you feel. Fortunately, dermal fillers are a safe and proven way to ease the appearance of wrinkles and create smoother, plumper skin.
Dermal fillers are natural muscle relaxants. This characteristic makes them extremely useful in situations involving chronic pain such as that caused by TMD.
How does it work? We strategically place small amounts of dermal fillers around your TMJ and the tissues adjacent to it. After several days, the muscles treated start to experience a lower level of tension, without having to take prescription medication like muscle relaxers! If you suffer from chronic teeth grinding (bruxism) or TMD, adding injectables to your pain management plan can amplify the response to other therapies.
Results can last anywhere from 3-6 months, depending on which products are used. Combining various injectables can help to extend the time between touch up applications. Most of our Clinton Township patients only need to stop by 2-3 times a year for a re-application.
