Once you reach the best aesthetic result for your teeth, you might be tempted to improve the appearance of the rest of your face. Often, a dentists are trained to use facial aesthetics in order to smoothen fine lines and wrinkles created by age, smoking, sun exposure and other environmental factors.
At Ace Dental, we have incorporated facial aesthetics in Camden with other dental treatments in our dental practice for patients who wish to have many cosmetic treatment options. In recent years, more and more dental practices in the UK offer facial aesthetics to patients who wish to rejuvenate their skin and take years off their face. Our dental practice has managed to integrate non-surgical facial aesthetics in Camden successfully.
Why should dental practices offer facial aesthetics?
Apart from keeping existing patients who may leave for other dentists offering facial aesthetics, there are many reasons why dentists should perform facial aesthetics. Unlike most health professionals, dentists have received extensive training in the area of the face and the mouth and know how to use injections precisely and effectively. Moreover, dentists have very high manual dexterity and a fine eye for detail. They are also prepared to manage adverse effects such as sensitivity, pain and swelling.
Facial aesthetics in Camden include Botox and dermal fillers. These treatments are designed to tone down the effect of fine lines and wrinkles, but they work differently. Botox simply deactivates the facial muscles that are responsible for the creation of wrinkles in the first place, whereas dermal fillers are injected directly into wrinkles and fine lines, as their name suggests. Botox is a purified toxin, whereas dermal fillers are made of different materials such as collagen and hyaluronic acid. Both treatments are injected into various areas in the face where wrinkles and fine lines tend to form (i.e. forehead, corners of the mouth, eyes).
The injections take only a few minutes and are administered after local anaesthetic has been applied onto the skin. Botox can last up to six months, whereas dermal fillers can last up to a year, depending on their quality and concentration.Back to Blog
