What are Facial Aesthetics?

Facial aesthetics are cosmetic treatments designed to accentuate and enhance natural facial features through a non-surgical procedure. Most people choose facial aesthetics to tighten loose skin, reverse the signs of ageing, create a symmetrical look, and get a more radiant look. Facial aesthetics are often referred to as Botox, filler, and anti-wrinkle injections, and aim to highlight existing facial features by rejuvenating and refreshing the skin.

Through facial aesthetics, you can soften expression lines, define features and enhance contours. By targeting areas such as the forehead, lips, cheeks, and nose that are most affected by the ageing process, facial aesthetics help to reduce the appearance of ageing. Depending on the treatment and how often it is topped up, facial aesthetics can enhance the facial profile dramatically or subtly.

Benefits of Facial Aesthetics

Facial aesthetic treatments have the potential to boost confidence by reducing skin imperfections. Many people choose facial aesthetics to improve their self-esteem by reducing insecurities such as wrinkles and fine lines. Facial aesthetics restore a youthful appearance to improve confidence and self-esteem. All facial aesthetic treatments are non-invasive and non-surgical meaning there is a short recovery period and a reduced risk of side effects. Most treatments are painless and cause little discomfort and offer excellent, instant results.

When performed by a qualified technician or nurse, facial aesthetics are a safe treatment that requires minimal downtime so you can continue your daily routine as normal.

How Long Does Facial Aesthetics Last?

Facial aesthetics are not permanent and require regular appointments to maintain the effects. Depending on the area treated, repeat treatments are required every three to 12 months. If you choose not to maintain facial aesthetic treatment, the effects will wear off and the treated area is likely to return to its original state over time.

Common Facial Aesthetic Treatments

1. Dermal Filler

Dermal filler is an injectable aesthetic treatment, commonly used to smooth out lines around the mouth, enhance the lips, store volume in the cheeks, refine the chin and improve facial symmetry. This treatment lasts around six to 12 months and is one of the most popular facial aesthetic procedures.

2. Botox

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is an injectable treatment that aims to relax facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Most people choose Botox to soften forehead lines and crow’s feet, smooth skin between the eyes and flatten wrinkles around the nose. On average, Botox lasts around three to four months.

3. Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is an aesthetic treatment that removes dead skin cells and improves the smooth appearance of the skin. A chemical solution is applied to the treated area during the procedure to reduce skin imperfections. Deep chemical peels can reduce deep wrinkles, scars, and sun damage, while light chemical peels eliminate dryness, acne, and uneven skin colouring.

4. Anti-wrinkle Treatments

Anti-wrinkle treatments are a common facial aesthetic designed to combat the ageing process and restore a smooth appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat frown lines, high smile lines, and sagging around the neck. This treatment is quick and effective with minimal risk and provides immediate results.

Why Have Facial Aesthetics at the Dentist?

Dentists are highly qualified professionals that are expertly trained to perform facial aesthetic treatments. Here are three reasons you should choose to visit the dentist for facial aesthetic treatment:

1. Dentists Have Experience

Due to the nature of their job, dentists have an in-depth understanding of the muscles, movements and nerves in the face meaning they have increased knowledge that allows them to administer injectable treatments safely. Dentists deliver anaesthetic into soft gum tissues every day so they are provided with ample experience that qualifies them to distribute and inject aesthetics.

2. Dentists are Qualified

Dentist training requires them to study for a minimum of five years and learn the key skills required to perform facial aesthetic treatments. Clinical Dexterity, Artistry, and Core Anatomical Knowledge are subjects studied by dentists which make them some of the best-qualified facial aesthetic administrators in the industry.

3. Dentists are Safe

Dentists who perform cosmetic interventions must obey the rules presented by The General Medical Council. Cross-infection control as well as general health and safety are of paramount importance in the dental industry so you can be sure that strict cleanliness standards and patient safety measures are followed.
