Facial aesthetics is an umbrella term to describe temporary cosmetic treatments to make subtle yet enhancing improvements to your facial appearance.
Anti-wrinkle injections to prevent/reduce lines/wrinkles and dermal fillers are the UK’s most popular non-surgical treatments for the removal of frown lines, wrinkles, reducing the appearance of crows’ feet, forehead wrinkles and fine lines, all of which can contribute to an aged appearance.
What are Facial Aesthetics?
Facial aesthetics refers to a range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments that are used to enhance the appearance of the face. These treatments can include Botox injections, dermal fillers, and other non-invasive procedures that are designed to improve the overall appearance and youthfulness of the face.
The harsh reality is that we will all inevitably experience the ageing process where lines and wrinkles will begin to appear. The reason why they begin to become more and more noticeable as you age is because the production of collagen and elastin in your face and body slows down. As the supply of collagen and elastin decreases, the volume of your soft tissues will reduce, which will cause wrinkles.
Some BENEFITS of facial aesthetics include:
– Minimally invasive or non-surgical, which means less recovery time and minimal scarring.
– Can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, making the face look more youthful.
– Can help to enhance facial contours and improve the symmetry of the face.
– Can help to improve self-confidence and self-esteem.
Some COMMON USES of facial aesthetics include:
– Botulinum toxin injections for reducing wrinkles, such as those around the eyes and forehead.
– Dermal fillers for adding volume to the cheeks, lips, and other areas of the face.
– Non-surgical facelifts, which use a combination of botulinum toxin and dermal fillers to lift and tighten the skin.
– Non-surgical jawline and chin enhancement.
– Non-surgical nose reshaping.
It’s important for potential patients to have realistic expectations and understand that facial aesthetics are not a replacement for permanent surgical treatments such as rhinoplasties, facelifts and chin and cheek implants. Also, it’s important to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner who will be able to provide a personalised treatment plan and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Patients should also be aware that the results of facial aesthetics are not permanent, and they will typically need to be repeated every 3-12 months, depending on the treatment.
Facial aesthetics are designed to prevent and reverse the signs of ageing, as well as restore and rejuvenate the skins volume and appearance.

The treatment itself will last around 30 minutes to an hour with the results lasting between 6-12 months. Most patients prefer to have top up sessions every 3-4 months before the effects begin to wear off and maintain their new more youthful appearance.
Yes, we do offer free facial aesthetics consultations. Our skilled clinicians will go through all the treatment options available to you and who better to see than a dentist, professionally trained for many years and knowledgeable about the facial nerves and muscles. This leads to better results and your are far less likely to experience any complications.
Dermal fillers are another popular cosmetic procedure that are used to add volume and fullness to the face. They can be used to plump up the lips, smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and add volume to the cheeks.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a popular cosmetic procedure that uses a form of botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze certain facial muscles. This can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face, particularly in the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth.
The results of facial aesthetic procedures can vary depending on the specific procedure and the individual person. Botox injections typically last for 3-6 months, while dermal fillers can last for 6-12 months or longer.
Recovery time after facial aesthetics varies depending on the specific procedure, but most people are able to return to their normal activities immediately or the following day. Some swelling, redness, and pain may occur, but they usually subside within a few days.
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.
– 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.
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.
