Physiological aging leads to dysfunction of the stomatognatic system. Photo-kinesiotherapy (PKT) is a program using photobiomodulation (PBM) in combination with different kinesiotherapies. PBM can slow down and manage aging process resulting in orofacial dermal-neuro-muscle rehabilitating. We are searching for a new more efficient therapy to decrease and manage velocity of senescence and dysfunction of stomatognatic system. Under Ethical Comittee approval (CAAE no. 45390715.2.0000.5419), fifteen female patients were selected and divided into 5 groups: G1 - Control group (cosmetics); G2 - Light group (cosmetics + PBM); G3 - Exercises Group (Cosmetics+ PBM + orofacial exercises); G4 - Electrotherapy Group (Cosmetics+ PBM + Electrotherapy - Aussie current); and, G5 - Taping Group (Cosmetics+ PBM + kinesiotherapy). Muscle evaluation was performed using electromyography, ultrasonography and bite force. Skin evaluation was performed in terms of skin hydration and viscoelasticity, skin echogenicity using ultrasonography and standardized high resolution photographies. Measures were done before (baseline values) and after 7 days and 30 days of treatment. The pilot phase (fifhteen patients) was concluded using Kruskal-Wallis statistical tests that showed non-significant differences between groups. However, all treatments affected muscle tone, cutaneous elasticity and dermis echogenicity resulting in interesting individual clinical observations.We suggest that the combination of cosmetics, mechanical and optical stimulus to all kind of different tissues from stomatognathic system can be an efficient choice to orofacial functional and aesthetic rehabilitation.
