What Facial Esthetic Services Does Dr. Engelberg Offer?
At our Arlington Heights, IL dentist office, Dr. Engelberg offers:
- Botox® Therapeutic for functional issues
- Botox® Cosmetic for aesthetic issues
- Juvederm Ultra
These treatment options can be used to tighten, rejuvenate, and smooth your facial skin for a more youthful appearance. They may also be used to relieve TMJ symptoms, such as tension headaches and jaw pain.
How can Botox alleviate my TMJ Symptoms?
Dr. Engelberg offers both Botox Cosmetic and Botox Therapeutic. While Botox Cosmetic is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Botox Therapeutic is used to strategically relax certain muscles around your face and jawbone that could be are tense, helping to temporarily reduce the discomfort of a TMJ disorder. Treatment only takes 15-20 minutes and the results can last up to six months. Botox Therapeutic leaves your smile much more relaxed and gives your facial muscles time to re-program to prevent teeth grinding or clenching in the future.
How do I know which facial filler is right for me?
Dr. Engelberg offers several types of facial fillers, each used to target a different region of the face for personalized and optimal results. Facial fillers add volume and elasticity to your facial skin, creating a more youthful appearance. Depending on the structure of your face and which areas need the most volume enhancement, Dr. Engelberg can make suggestions on which facial filler is right for you. Patients who are hoping to reduce the volume of fat underneath their chin may consider Kybella as an alternative. Instead of adding volume, Kybella is an injectable treatment that can actually destroy the fat cells under the chin.
