Facial aesthetics

Facial aesthetics refer to the various treatments and procedures that are performed to improve the appearance of the face.

Who can benefit from facial aesthetics?

Many people seek facial aesthetic treatments to enhance their natural beauty, boost their self-confidence and reduce signs of ageing.

At Art of Dental Care, our experienced dental surgeon uses non-surgical treatment options for improving the facial aesthetics.

We provide both Botox injections and Dermal Fillers right here in our Chester surgery, after completing a careful assessment of each patient. Each of these treatments has specific benefits and risks, and the best option for an individual will depend on their unique needs and goals.

Our experienced dental surgeon is well versed in treating patients who need Botox for treating facial wrinkles of the eyes and forehead, gummy smiles, temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) and in cases of extreme bruxism (teeth grinding), alongside the headaches that can accompany clenching habits.

The effects of Botox and fillers typically last for several months, after which patients will need to have additional treatments to maintain their results.

What are the possible side effects?

While both treatments have been shown to be safe and effective, they do come with some risks and side effects.

Possible side effects of Botox include pain at the injection site, bruising, headaches and temporary drooping of the eyelid or brow.

Fillers may cause bruising, swelling and allergic reactions. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of these treatments with your dentist before deciding to undergo them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Facial aesthetics refers to non-surgical cosmetic treatments that aim to enhance or improve one's facial features and appearance through injections or other techniques.

Botox is a brand name for a protein called botulinum toxin type-A, which is used to temporarily relax facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Botox works by blocking nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. By relaxing these muscles, wrinkles and fine lines are minimised.

Botox is considered safe when administered properly by a trained professional. However, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects.

The effects of Botox can last anywhere from 3-6 months, depending on the individual.

• Glabella - frown line between eyebrows

• Forehead- lines that appear when moving eyebrows

• Crow’s feet - smile lines around eyes

• Bunny lines - lines on nasal bridge

• Chin - to relax skin in area

• Reduction of a high smile line

• Masseter - to relax muscles of cheeks that cause TMD/clenching

• Temporalis - Either side of head which can give headaches caused by clenching/grinding 

Dermal Fillers are substances that can be injected, such as hyaluronic acid and collagen, which are used to add volume to specific areas of the face and to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.

Dermal Fillers work by filling in the areas of the face that have lost volume, most likely due to aging or other factors. This can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

• Lip enhancement

• Smokers lines

• Cheek enhancement - for fullness and contouring

• Hollow temples

• Nasolabial lines

• Marionette lines

• Chin remodelling 

Some patients may experience minor swelling, bruising, or redness after getting Dermal Fillers. However, most people can return to their regular activities immediately after treatment.

The effects of dermal fillers typically last between 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s response to the treatment.

Anyone who would like to enhance their natural beauty, is self-conscious about certain areas or would like to feel a little younger and fresher and who has realistic expectations about the outcome of the treatment can be a good candidate for facial aesthetics. However, certain medical conditions and medications may make some individuals ineligible for certain treatments. It is important to discuss your medical history and lifestyle with your provider before undergoing any treatment. Facial aesthetics will not be provided for anyone under 18 years of age.
