Facial Aesthetics

Facial aesthetics is an umbrella term to describe temporary cosmetic treatments to make subtle yet enhancing improvements to your facial appearance.

Anti-wrinkle injections (botulinum toxin, also know as "Botox") and dermal fillers are the UK’s most popular non-surgical treatments for the removal of wrinkles, reducing the appearance of crows’ feet, forehead wrinkles and fine lines, all of which can contribute to an aged appearance.

Facial aesthetics, such as botulinum toxin and dermal fillers, are considered safe when performed by a qualified and licensed practitioner.

Our dentists are highly trained and experienced in performing injections, making them well-suited to perform facial aesthetics procedures. In addition, dentists have a detailed understanding of the anatomy and function of the face, including the muscles, nerves, and bones, which is important for performing facial aesthetics treatments safely and effectively.

However, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects that patients should be aware of before undergoing treatment.

The most common side effects of Botox and dermal fillers are mild and temporary, and may include:

– Bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection site.

– Slight pain or discomfort during or after the procedure.

– Headaches.

– Numbness or tingling at the injection site.

– Itching or rash at the injection site.

In rare cases, there may be more serious side effects, such as:

– Allergic reactions to the filler or injection.

– Blood clots.

– Infections.

– Blindness.

It’s important to note that these serious side effects are extremely rare and can be minimized by choosing a qualified and licensed dentist. During the consultation your dentist will discuss with you what your options are, the procedure and risks involved. They will evaluate the patient’s medical history and any allergies they might have, to minimize the risks.

In general, facial aesthetic treatments are considered safe and effective, and the benefits often outweigh the risks. As long as you choose someone such as our qualified and licensed clinicians, the risks of complications are minimal.
