Above all, we prioritise our professionalism and the safety of our clients when we carry out our treatments. We strive to give the best, most natural facial results possible as specialists in this field.
Our mission is to increase facial aesthetics’ acceptance and remove the stigma associated with it, as well as to ensure that men feel included and at ease while deciding whether or not to undertake a procedure.
Our consultations include a lot of conversation. We recognise that shared decision-making is the current way to go, and that it comes naturally when the patient is given the time to answer all of the questions.
How we work:
Consultation – This is our opportunity to get to know each other and have the talk that will lead to mutual facial treatment decisions.
Procedure – Although most facial treatments are painless, some discomfort is to be expected and can be controlled; methods will be thoroughly described prior to the procedure day.
Recovery – Start caring for your lovely skin now; you’ll be wearing it for the rest of your life. On a case-by-case basis, specific recovery methods will be provided to ensure your treatment is of the best quality.
Maintenance – It’s critical to maintain a healthy facial skincare routine and be aware of what you need to do to keep your treatment results.
What are facial aesthetics?
Facial aesthetics refers to non-surgical facial treatments that offer rejuvenating or anti-aging properties.
At their most basic level, facial aesthetics are minor, non-surgical procedures that improve your appearance in a subtle but visible way.
Facial treatments can help disguise or even delay the passage of time, giving the face and the person a modest lift and, as a result, encouraging confidence in your smile and skin.
Facial treatments are clinically safe injectables that are used to relax facial expressions by blocking nerve signals to muscles or defining, re-volumizing, and enhancing facial contours.
These are jobs that dentists are uniquely suited to accomplish due to their understanding of facial anatomy and dexterity in delivering delicate dental treatments on a daily basis, which is why we offer them at FaceLab Aesthetics.
We don’t make promises we can’t keep: we can’t take years off your appearance, but we can mitigate the affects of time, stress, and work.
The two main types of facial aesthetics are anti-aging injections and dermal fillers:
Anti-aging Injections – Anti-aging injections can be used to relax the skin and lessen the affects of stress, aging, and emotions in numerous locations around the face.
Because it’s the tightening of those facial muscles that causes the unsightly lines, these injections temporarily block nerve signals to the tiny underlying muscles.
Anti-wrinkle injections, which are most typically used on the forehead and around the eyes, can also be used to cure a “gummy grin” by relaxing the facial muscle that elevates the top lip.
Excessive underarm sweating is another popular and efficient usage of this procedure; many celebrities have been known to get this treatment before red carpet events to avoid awkward moments.
Dermal Fillers – Hyaluronic acid, which is included in many topical facial moisturisers, is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that helps keep the skin hydrated and healthy, although its levels decline with age.
Dermal fillers replenish hyaluronic acid in specific areas of the face.
The fillers provide volume and revitalise the skin, and they can even be used to smooth out deep facial wrinkles and remodel features from within.
The fillers dissolve over time, but the effects can continue for up to nine months, making this a treatment that provides long-term benefits.
Dermal fillers are commonly used to address age-related disorders like as wrinkles and folds, but they are also utilised to treat non-age-related conditions such as scarring or acne blemishes. Dermal fillers can also be utilised to draw attention to certain parts like the lips and cheekbones.
We’d like to emphasise the need of professional application once more. Because you are smoothing and filling the most visible portion of your body – your face – the effects must be done by someone who is knowledgeable and experienced if they are to appear natural.
Because the physiology of the face is so complex, you’ll want to be in the hands of a skilled medical practitioner who has access to all of the instruments and medications needed to reverse the procedure as quickly as possible.
This could result in a significant increase in the amount of money spent in the future to address any issues that arise in your skin, not to mention the psychological damage.
The results of anti-wrinkle skin treatments can last up to five months, while dermal fillers can last up to nine months. Of course, the benefits diminish over time, which may put some people at ease, as the face changes through time and a treatment from years ago may no longer produce the ideal appearance.
Instead, the skin treatments last for a long time before fading, allowing a decision to be made. Should the first facial treatment be repeated, or has the face changed slightly over time, necessitating a minor adjustment to the fillers and injections used?
The procedure itself can be a source of anxiety for certain people, who have a mild aversion to injections or are concerned about the outcome of their skin.
What is facial sculpting?
Facial sculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses an injectable filler to elevate the face, reduce wrinkles and give it definition. Face sculpting, unlike other cosmetic injections that deposit gels and fillers beneath the skin, delves deeper and targets crucial parts of the patient’s bone structure, allowing for an architectural modification that makes them look more defined, natural, and attractive. Facial sculpting can be completed in as little as 15 to 20 minutes every session, with little downtime, allowing patients to resume their normal routines.
Facial sculpting is a great treatment option for men and women of all ages who want to have younger looking skin, and the cost varies depending on how much product is used to fulfil the patient’s goals. The high-risk areas are frequently targeted, such as the cheekbone, jawline and chin.
Is facial sculpting permanent?
Patients who receive the facial sculpting treatment often see effects last for 18 to 24 months, however many opt for touch-up treatments every six to twelve months. Maintaining a focused skincare regimen with high-quality products will ensure that your benefits are long-lasting.
Can dentists do skin treatments?
You might be perplexed as to why a dentist would work in non-surgical facial cosmetics. Dentists are uniquely qualified to conduct such skin and facial procedures, having completed five years of undergraduate study focused solely on the face, not to mention the postgraduate training that follows. Dental professionals commonly carry out many different dental treatments such as implants and braces giving them lots of experience in treating the mouth and face.
A dental practitioner studies a lot about the face; not just the teeth, but also about the anatomical features associated with the mouth, as well as how to provide oral therapy that is proportional to the patient’s face.
Dentists, like any other healthcare professional who sees patients on a regular basis at their clinic, have the advantage of being able to establish rapport and, as a result, trust. Who better to provide non-surgical facial cosmetic treatment to our patients when they already have that all-important trust?
Cosmetic dentistry treatments and non-surgical facial aesthetic therapies go hand-in-hand. Patients who have chosen cosmetic dental operations are often interested in the prospect of facial aesthetics.
So, what skin therapies are available to enhance our patients’ smiles?
1 – Enhancing a smile with white, straight teeth by delicately plumping the lips (injecting the hyaluronic acid dermal filer merely in the borders of the lips) or by increasing volume.
2 – Dermal fillers are used in dentistry to volumise the mid-face area, particularly in patients who have lost some teeth in the cheek area, as well as to replace lost volume or fill deep creases in the nose to mouth (naso labial folds) and mouth to chin (marionette) lines.
3 – Botulinum Toxin, which is used to target active muscles. One application is to reduce a gummy smile; a little quantity of toxin weakens the muscles that raise the lip, resulting in a gentler and softer upward pull when a patient smiles, allowing all of the teeth to be seen while reducing the amount of gum on display.
4 – Botulinum Toxin can be used to treat temporomandibular joint issues as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, and it can also be used to treat bruxism in addition to standard dental procedures.
