Anxiety/Depression

The use of Muscle Relaxing Agents for depression and anxiety, is a new and innovative treatment that may aid significantly with the treatment and management of depression.

We at LightSculpt believe that facial expressions associated with depression are not just the consequences of low mood.  In fact, they may be integral components of the disorder, and may therefore be targeted with much benefit as an entirely new approach to the treatment of clinically low mood and depression.

The use of a localised muscle paralyzing agent, focusing on the corrugator supercilli and procerus muscles, may help to blunt the expression and alleviate the emotions associated with depression and anxiety.

The use of Muscle relaxing agents for the treatment of depression or anxiety should be used as an adjunct to anti-depressive and anxiolytic medications- in collaboration with your medical practitioner.

Bruxism/TMJ

Bruxism is the medical term for grinding and/or clenching your teeth. Have you ever woken up with a sore jaw or a tension headache? Ever noticed yourself clenching your teeth when you are at work or concentrating on something important? This is because bruxism is believed to be caused by the stresses of daily living.

 The pressure on your teeth during grinding and clenching can be up to 20 times greater than the force used in normal biting and chewing. Excessive teeth grinding and clenching often leads to an aching jaw, headaches, gum problems and the danger of wearing down the tooth enamel, exposing the dentine, which can lead to a host of dental issues. These are just some of the symptoms associated with bruxism.

Migraines

The incidence of chronic headaches amongst the adult population may vary, and is a commonly mismanaged or misdiagnosed condition.

The majority of chronic headache cases may be caused by a condition known as myofacial pain disorder syndrome, which involves spasms of the muscles which control movement of the jaw, namely the masseter, temporalis and neck muscles. This spasm in the muscles could lead to chronic headaches and bruxism (grinding) which can have a debilitating effect on daily activities of life. A means of treating this spasm may be to relax the offending muscles by injecting a muscle relaxing agent which can offer relief of pain and spasm in the muscle.
