Many dental practices are now offering facial aesthetics as part of the dental practice regimen. You may be wondering why a dentist practice performs facial aesthetics and how this links to oral health. What you’ll realise after reading this, is that the dentist is best placed to deliver facial aesthetic treatments.
Facial aesthetics is a form of oral treatment that offers injectables to improve facial expressions or re-define facial contours. Often known as a rejuvenating treatment, it is a non-surgical form of treatment to remove signs of wrinkles and ageing off the face.
Facial Aesthetics is made up of a variety of treatments that target different contours on your face. You may require dermal fillers, botox or a thread lift. The condition of your facial skin will be assessed before determining the best treatment for your skin needs.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers consist of making the appearance of your skin seem more youthful-looking. This gives your skin a lighter appearance with the removal of any wrinkles. The treatment is expected to last between 6-12 months. A dermal filler can be topped up by the dentist when required. A trained dentist is on hand to transform your look and are very safe with low complication rates. If necessary, the patient will experience this under local anaesthesia if required. There may be a chance of experiencing bruising and swelling for a short period just after treatment.
What Is A Thread Lift?
A thread-lift is an invasive cosmetic procedure where cones and graspers are passed through via a large needle, where the cone grabs hold of the skin and pulling motion is performed to deliver a youthful appearance. The threads are absorbed into the skin and are tightened. They help to reduce fine lines as these dissolves over time.
