Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, that is how the saying goes. This is a saying that implies beauty is subjective and is interpreted differently by different people, but what if a person does not see themselves as attractive enough? Many people look at themselves and see areas of the face they think can be improved upon.

As we age the skin on our faces starts to lose the natural acids that keep it in good health and make it appear young and fresh, this can lead to the skin developing wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The development of these unwanted new facial features can lead to an old or tired look, many people see this type of appearance as a negative.

In recent years, more and more people have sought medical ways to retain or regain the youthful look they want and enjoy, modern medical techniques have been developed to meet the growing demand in less invasive ways.  

A number of dental practices have now set up an injection-based service offering facial aesthetics Kent, giving their patients access to new ways to maintain their youthful looks.

What is meant by the term facial aesthetics?

The facial aesthetics being offered are often injection-based, such as Botox and dermal fillers. The benefits of using these cosmetic treatments are that they are quick to administer, less invasive than standard cosmetic surgeries, and have a high degree of safety associated with them. For those who are looking for cosmetic enhancement treatments without the need to go into a surgical environment, these injections may be the perfect solution.

The main purpose of facial aesthetics injections is to plump out the areas of the face they are applied to, this helps to give the area treated a new lease of life and makes it appear younger and fuller. Removing wrinkles, folds and other unwanted facial features is now easier than ever before, with a treatment that can normally be applied within minutes.

A dermal filler is used to replace the natural hyaluronic acid that the skin loses with age. A fine needle is used to inject a small amount of sterile hyaluronic acid into the desired area of the face, this helps the muscles of the area to relax and fills it out in a natural fashion. One notable use of dermal fillers is filling out the lips, as this will add shape and definition to them.

Botox

Botox is, without doubt, the most well known of the treatments that are referred to as facial aesthetics, as it is so widely used and talked about. One of the common uses of Botox is the treatment of frown lines.

Not a permanent solution

It needs to be clearly stated that these facial aesthetics injections are not a permanent solution to wrinkles, frown lines or any other unwanted feature they are used to treat, the normal length of time a dermal filler will last is around twelve months and Botox will last around four months. However, a patient can choose to have a top-up procedure if they want to gain long-lasting effects.
