You can’t hop in a time machine to relive your 20’s… but you can visit our office for dermal fillers that make you look and feel like you’re in your 20’s again!
Dermal fillers are highly effective for therapeutic and aesthetic treatments, such as:
- “Crow’s feet”
- Frown lines
- Smile lines
- Forehead lines
- Eyebrow lines
- Neck lines
- “Gummy Smiles”
- Clenching and grinding teeth
- TMJ syndrome
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers work by blocking the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. (These muscle contractions are to blame for facial wrinkles, TMJ syndrome, teeth grinding and similarly undesirable conditions.) When the muscle is injected with dermal fillers, the muscles relax, and they don’t contract or flex as they usually would. By blocking these nerve signals, dermal fillers treat the source of these symptoms to eradicate related aches and discomfort!
Dermal Fillers for Teeth Grinding and Jaw Clenching
If you’ve experienced the discomfort of headaches caused by grinding teeth or clenching jaws, you’ll be happy to know that we can help provide relief for you through dermal fillers!
Our doctors strategically inject dermal filler treatments in specific areas of the jaw to relax those muscles. When these muscles are relaxed, they won’t clench, grind or react to stress as they did prior to treatment. With regular dermal filler injections, you can stop clenching and grinding your teeth!
Dermal Fillers for TMJ Syndrome
TMJ syndrome, characterized by pain and discomfort in the temporomandibular (jaw) joint, causes aching in the face and jaw, as well as difficulty opening and closing the mouth. Dermal fillers target the source of these unpleasant symptoms by inhibiting the muscle’s tendency to contract. Not only can dermal fillers treat TMJ syndrome, but many people who use dermal fillers for TMJ syndrome notice a more appealing jawline after treatment too!
Dermal Fillers for Migraines
When dermal fillers are injected around the head and neck, it blocks the nerve signals that tell your brain to perceive painful headaches or migraines. Many people experience dramatic relief from chronic headaches and migraines with regular dermal filler treatments!
Dermal Fillers for Gummy Smile
Dermal fillers effectively treat “gummy smiles” by reducing excessive lip elevation. During the dermal filler procedure, the toxin is injected directly into the “elevator” muscle of the upper lip, which weakens the muscle's ability to contract, or raise up too high, when smiling, thus preventing the over exposure of gum line.
Do Dermal Fillers Make You Look Younger?
Dermal fillers are considerably effective at reducing fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing the skin, and improving the overall appearance of the face without the need for surgery. They are a popular option for rejuvenating the appearance of the face and creating a healthier, fuller look!
When we inject dermal fillers into areas of the face affected by wrinkles, smile lines, eyebrow lines, forehead lines, age lines or crow’s feet, the facial muscles relax, causing undesirable lines to smoothen out and temporarily disappear. Filler injections are often administered to the cheeks and lips to attain a person’s desired appearance. These treatments can be used to plump the lips, contour the cheeks, and reduce or completely eliminate wrinkles.
Dermal fillers cause the skin and facial structure to appear fresher, younger, tighter and smoother!
