What is facial aesthetics?

Wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and uneven skin tones are all the results of the natural ageing process, lifestyle factors, and the environment. If you are unhappy with a specific facial feature, facial aesthetics treatments can help you.


The term “Facial Aesthetics” generally refers to products and procedures that are designed to reduce the signs of ageing and improve the skin’s appearance to make it seem more youthful. Today’s innovative facial aesthetic treatments with small changes can improve facial appearance dramatically.

What does facial aesthetics involve?

There are several facial aesthetic treatments that can reduce the signs of ageing and enhance facial features, including:

Wrinkle reduction

Wrinkle reduction, or as it’s most commonly known, Botox, is the injection of a natural substance usually derived from a micro-organism. Botox blocks certain chemical signals from nerves and helps muscles to relax, thus reducing wrinkles, such as frown lines across the forehead and crow’s feet. Unlike some other treatments, you will start to see the results of these injections after a few days.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers offer a safe and natural cosmetic treatment. Also known as injectable implants are medical device implants that restore volume and fullness to the skin and improve the skin’s appearance. This is ideal for deeper lines and wrinkles. It is also possible to use fillers to enhance the definition of facial features, such as the lips and cheeks, by creating a fuller appearance. Dermal fillers are instant, so you can see a visible result immediately after injection

Skin rejuvenation

Rejuvenating your skin’s youthful elasticity and brightness is the ideal way to reduce the effects of ageing. Skin rejuvenation can treat skin conditions like rosacea, irregular pigmentation, spider veins, or brown spots. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and intense pulse light therapies (IPL) are common skin rejuvenation treatments.

Which is the right treatment for me?

Your doctor will help you decide which is the right medical treatment according to your needs and medical condition. So, before any aesthetic procedure, your doctor will take your medical history, skincare regime, assess your skin and discuss your concerns. Then they will then suggest the best treatments for you and develop a treatment plan from there.


What does post-operative care look like?


Depending on the procedure, patients can return to normal activity the same day or the following day. Botox side effects include pain and tenderness around the injection site, headaches, flu-like symptoms, droopy eyelids, or crooked smiles. Visit your doctor if symptoms persist for a long time.

Why should I go to my dentist for facial aesthetics treatments?


Although many facial aesthetics treatments can be found in dermatology clinics and spas, there are several benefits to seeking treatment at your dentist. Firstly, dentists are trained specifically in the oral and maxillofacial areas, which include every part of your face from the chin to your forehead. Having this training allows dentists to be more knowledgeable about injections in these areas, as well as the physiology, aesthetics, and underlying vascular and nervous systems of the face.


Dentists do not only study facial anatomy, but they also must go through specialised training to administer Botox injections. Having both theoretical and practical knowledge, they know how to create the perfect ratio between your lips and teeth and what will look best for you. So who’s better to perform facial aesthetic treatments than a dentist?
