Did you know that 7.7 million people in the UK had facial aesthetics treatments in 2022?
Facial aesthetics is becoming increasingly popular, but what is it? Facial aesthetic treatment refers to subtle appearance enhancements.
Unlike plastic surgery, facial aesthetic treatments don’t rely on drastic transformations or surgery but are about minimally invasive procedures that help create balance, proportion and symmetry in a person’s face.
Read on to learn more about facial aesthetics, including what the best treatments are for your skin concern.
Popular facial aesthetic treatments
There are a variety of facial aesthetic treatments to choose from, including fillers, botulinum toxin, micro-needling and dermaplaning.
Fillers, or derma fillers, are a non-surgical treatment that restores lost volume and smooths out wrinkles. Most derma fillers in the UK contain hyaluronic acid and are used to plump lips, soften smile lines and rejuvenate the under-eye area; they typically last six to 18 months.
Botulinum toxin, or Botox, is an injection that relaxes the muscles which cause wrinkles. Botox, which lasts for three to four months, is an effective treatment to reduce the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet, as it smooths the skin, making it look more youthful.
Another popular facial aesthetics treatment is micro-needling, which uses a device to exfoliate the outer layer of skin with tiny needles, encouraging the body to make more collagen and elastin. Micro-needling improves skin tone and texture and can last upwards of four months after the last treatment.
Lasting for three to four weeks, dermaplaning is a painless skin exfoliation which uses a scalpel to remove dirt, dead skin cells and ‘peach fuzz’. Dermaplaning can help reduce acne scars or pitted skin and give you a healthy glow and softer skin.
The importance of a skilled practitioner
Whatever facial aesthetic treatment you choose, finding a qualified and skilled practitioner is the most important thing. We recommend choosing a licensed and highly experienced professional with a deep understanding of facial anatomy and aesthetics.
Why choose a dental practice to offer facial aesthetic treatments?
Increasingly, dental practices are offering facial aesthetic treatments, but why should you choose a dental practice for your treatment?
1.Extensive facial knowledge
Due to the nature of the industry, dentists have extensive knowledge of facial structures and anatomy. This knowledge means dentists can easily determine how to achieve a harmonious and natural look using facial aesthetic treatments.
2.Safe facial aesthetic treatments
As part of their training, dentists must learn how to give precise and safe administration of injections (for various oral procedures). This, and a dentist’s facial knowledge, means they understand how to provide facial aesthetic treatments safely and always get the dosage right.
3.Convenient for you
If you visit your dentist for regular check-ups, then it can be convenient to get your facial aesthetics at the same time and from the same dental practice. Getting your facial aesthetic treatment at your dental practice removes the need to find a separate provider for cosmetic treatment.
