Often patients will experience facial pain and headaches related to their TMD condition. Botox® can also be used in areas such as the temporalis, forehead and glabellar to manage hyperactive muscles contributing to facial pain. When treating these areas for muscle management, patients will also experience wrinkle reduction as a cosmetic side effect.

Facial Fillers can prevent and alleviate a common inflammatory condition affecting the corners of the mouth (oral commissures) called Angular Cheilitis. Depending on underlying causes, it may last a few days or persist indefinitely. It is also called angular stomatitis and cheilosis. The condition presents with a red rash-like area with tenderness, irritation and cracking in the skin at the corners of the lips. It can be a very annoying condition since every time you eat, smile, talk or laugh; the skin tends to crack, interrupting healing. If small fragments of food get into the wound or fissure, it can further impair healing and increase the risk of secondary infection.

Botox® and Facial Fillers can also help patients with Lip Asymmetries. Whether genetically uneven or caused by trauma, facial injectables can be used
to create more symmetrical results.

If asymmetric volume distribution of the soft tissues is contributing to the asymmetric appearance, dermal fillers can be placed to restore or add volume to a particular area. For lip asymmetry “at rest”, facial fillers work best to rebalance the appearance. If the asymmetry appears when actively smiling, Botox® can be used to manage hyperactive muscles to restore balance around the lips.
