A beginner’s guide to facial aesthetics

Do you look in the mirror and wish you could turn back time? Many people are doing the next best thing by undergoing subtle cosmetic treatments to achieve a more youthful looking complexion. Read on to find out more about how facial aesthetic treatment at Chiswick Park Dental & Facial Practice can transform your appearance and boost your confidence levels.

What is facial aesthetics?

Facial aesthetics is the use of non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers and wrinkle reduction to reduce the signs of ageing or enhance specific areas of the face for a more youthful complexion.

What causes the signs of ageing?

As we age, stress, sun exposure, and diet all begin to take their toll on our appearance. The body’s natural supply of collagen and elastin decrease, causing skin to lose its firmness and elasticity. Production of hyaluronic acid – the molecule that helps skin retain moisture – also declines, causing skin to become drier and lose its youthful radiance. Facial aesthetic treatments help to boost these components to reverse the signs of ageing.

Are facial aesthetic treatments dangerous?

No – when performed by skilled professionals, facial aesthetics treatments are completely safe. At Chiswick Park Dental & Facial Practice, your treatment will be carried out in a clean and safe environment by experienced team members who have an in-depth knowledge of the facial structure. We provide a free initial consultation to discuss treatment options and ensure that any questions and concerns are covered before your treatment begins.

What type of treatments are available?

Here at Chiswick Park Dental & Facial Practice we offer a selection of gentle facial cosmetic treatments, including:

Anti-wrinkleInjecting purified protein into specific facial muscles to temporarily relax them, softening facial expressions and reversing signs of ageing.

Dermal FillersUsing hyaluronic gel (a synthetic version of the body’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid) to correct deep lines, replace lost volume, or enhance what you already have.

Micro-Needling with PRFA skin rejuvenating treatment that uses a controlled micro needle to stimulate collagen and elastin production, producing excellent results repairing fine lines, acne scars, traumatic scars, and enlarged pores.

Mesotherapy with PRFDeeper than micro-needling but with similar goals, mesotherapy achieves longer-lasting results and re-hydrates the skin from inside out. It can be combined with micro-needling during the same session.

Micro-Needling and/or mesotherapy with hyaluronic acidCombining skin rejuvenating techniques with liquid hyaluronic acid to repair and thoroughly re-hydrate skin.

How long does treatment take?

Most treatments take less than an hour, but times vary depending on the procedure you are having. Unlike surgical cosmetic procedures, there is no recovery time necessary – you can carry out your regular day-to-day activities immediately after treatment.

How long do the results last?

This will depend on several factors, including what type of treatment you have, the area of the face you are treating, and how your body reacts to treatment. Your practitioner will be able to give you specific guidelines during your initial consultation.
