Did you know that you can now enjoy the benefits of facial aesthetics without seeing a cosmetic surgeon?
As we age, our skin naturally begins to lose volume and elasticity. As a result, it’s not uncommon to begin noticing an increasing number of deep lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and mouth. Facial aesthetic treatments can help smooth away wrinkles and improve the look of fine lines, providing long-term, noticeable results. Best of all, these treatments can be performed right in our office.
Beach Dental Care is pleased to offer facial aesthetics as part of our extensive line of treatment options, performed by our own Dr. Michael Maya, DMD.
These treatments can reduce the appearance of common expression lines, including crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines and more. The result is notably younger and smoother looking skin. It can also be used to address certain medical issues, such as migraines, muscle spasms and TMJ.
How Do Facial Aesthetic Treatments Work?
We utilize the safest, most effective anti-aging injections on the market. These injections are formulated with a special protein that works to block overactive nerve impulses and restrict muscle contractions. As a result, the muscles beneath the skin remain relaxed, making fine lines and wrinkles less visible. This popular formula has also proven to be highly effective in relieving the symptoms associated with migraine headaches and TMJ, and it is frequently used in patients receiving dental implants.
Ideal candidates for facial aesthetics include individuals who:
- Are between the ages of 18 and 65, and who are in good physical and psychological health
- Have been diagnosed with, and experience discomfort from TMJ
- Are interested in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Are looking for a non-surgical skin treatment
- Are willing to discuss their concerns and desired outcome with their dentist prior to treatment
Treatment results can last anywhere from one to six months, depending on each individual case. Once a treatment begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked prior to the procedure. Individuals who receive a treatment to address chronic conditions may begin to experience symptoms as the previous treatment begins to wear off.
Facial Aesthetics for TMJ and Migraines
The facial aesthetic services at Beach Dental Care have been found to be useful in treating a variety of other medical-related conditions. In particular, it’s proven to be effective in preventing frequent migraine headaches and alleviating the symptoms of TMJ. Individuals who grind their teeth not only experience tooth damage and sensitivity, but also often experience muscle pain, jaw pain and migraines. This can significantly impact one’s quality of life.
Treatments can provide relief from these chronic conditions by temporarily paralyzing the associated muscle fibers, effectively weakening the force of teeth grinding. If you have been diagnosed with migraines or suffer from TMJ, facial aesthetics could be the ideal solution for you.
What Do Facial Aesthetics Treatments Entail?
A typical treatment takes about 10 minutes or less. Before you begin, the doctor will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate areas on which to focus. Most patients report feeling a slight pinch while receiving the injections. If you are concerned about pain, the doctor may be able to apply numbing agent to the treatment area prior to the procedure. Facial aesthetic treatments require virtually no down time, so you should be able to return to your normal daily routine immediately following your appointment.
- Facial aesthetics can be highly effective in addressing any of the following:
- Headache due to muscle tension around face, neck, head etc.
- Clenching teeth
- Gummy smile
- Puckered chins and lip lines
When Will I See Results?
Many patients notice results within as little as 24-48 hours. Results typically last anywhere from one month to six months, depending on the severity of the emotion lines and/or the condition being treated. The doctor will work with you to develop a customized treatment schedule based on your specific needs and desired results.
