What is Facial Aesthetics Treatment?

Fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume in your face and lips might leave you feeling self-conscious about ageing. With facial aesthetics treatment, you can turn back the clock and rejuvenate your skin with just a few injections.

Facial aesthetics refers to a type of non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure that can temporarily diminish wrinkles or restore volume. Common treatment areas include the forehead, cheeks and lips.

We are proud to offer facial aesthetics in Rayleigh, Benfleet and the surrounding areas. The dentist might not be the obvious choice for this type of treatment, but it actually makes a lot of sense to have this done in a safe and sterile environment.

Dentists are also very skilled with needles and spend a lot of time studying the structure of the face. This makes the dentist’s office the ideal place for your treatment. If you’re curious about facial aesthetics in Rayleigh, read on to learn more about what this treatment entails and what you can expect.

What is facial aesthetics

What is facial aesthetics?

Facial aesthetics is a broad term that can refer to anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and lip fillers. This discipline involves addressing key concerns about the face, including loss of volume, fine lines or wrinkles.

These results won’t last forever and will eventually wear off, but individuals can choose to have them “topped up” regularly if they wish to maintain the results. During your initial consultation with our facial aesthetics team, we can help you to identify your primary concerns and the treatments that will deliver the best results. Next, we can formulate a treatment plan that works for you.

When deciding to undergo facial aesthetics treatments, it’s important to have realistic expectations about what can be achieved. We will help you to manage your expectations by offering a realistic representation of what each treatment can achieve and how long it will last. We will also advise you on alternative treatments if we think we can achieve better results with another method.

Options for facial aesthetics

Options for facial aesthetics

There are three main treatment options available for facial aesthetics. Rayleigh residents can choose from anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and lip fillers. Let’s explore each treatment option in more detail.

  • Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly used to relax the muscles in the face so that the skin above appears smoother. This can help to address deep-set wrinkles and fine lines. Common treatment areas include the forehead, around the eyes, the sides of the nose and the chin. This treatment can also help to address concerns such as a gummy smile. The results are visible after around one week and can last around 3-4 months, but this will vary for different people.

  • Dermal fillers are used to restore volume in the face. They contain a substance called hyaluronic acid which helps to retain water. This material occurs naturally in the body and is broken down over time. Dermal fillers may be used to fill hollows under the eyes or in the temples. They can also be used to create more definition in your features, including your nose, chin and cheeks. The results are visible immediately and can last up to 6 months.

  • Lip fillers are similar to dermal fillers but are used to plump up the lips. Lips lose volume as we age, and plumper lips can create a more youthful appearance. Lip fillers can create a subtle plumping, change the shape of your lips, or create a dramatic transformation. The results are visible immediately and can last up to 6 months.

Benefits of facial aesthetic treatments

Benefits of facial aesthetic treatments

Our Rayleigh customers turn to us for facial aesthetic treatments for so many different reasons. Some want to refine and sculpt their features while others want to rejuvenate their skin to look and feel younger. Whatever your reasons for wanting to explore facial aesthetics with Benfleet Dental Centre, there are many benefits to be enjoyed. These include:

  • Facial aesthetics is minimally invasive and requires very little downtime. This means that you can usually get back to your normal life around 48 hours after treatment. We will provide you with extensive aftercare instructions to help you to make the most of your treatment.

  • Facial aesthetics will wear away over time. So, if you change your mind or don’t like the outcome, the results will eventually wear off. This is an attractive alternative to more permanent solutions such as cosmetic surgery.

  • A small amount of product can achieve a lot in the right hands. When you trust a dentist with your facial aesthetics, you can be confident that they have extensive training in the field. Compare this to beauty therapists, who only need a one-day training course to qualify.

  • Fillers and anti-wrinkle injections can boost your confidence and make you feel a lot younger. We know that appearance isn’t everything, but we know that it can have a big impact on your confidence and how you feel. Facial aesthetics offers a simple way to boost your confidence.

  • Fast results mean that you could consider this treatment option before special events such as a wedding or your birthday. We will advise you on how soon before the big day you should consider your treatments.

  • Anti-wrinkle treatments can do more than just smooth out your skin. They are also highly effective for treating a condition called hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. If you worry about how much you sweat, anti-wrinkle injections could help you to feel more in control.

Rayleigh, Essex

About Rayleigh, Essex

The name Rayleigh is thought to be derived from the Anglo Saxon words ‘roe’, meaning deer, and ‘leah’, meaning clearing. Today, it has a population of over 30,000 and has a thriving town centre. There has been a settlement in Rayleigh from prehistoric times and Roman remains have also been found in the area.

In the 1990s, the area around Rayleigh was chosen for development and lots of new homes were built on the land. This led to objections from residents who worried that the charm of the area would be lost with an increase in population. While the population may have grown, Rayleigh has managed to retain its small-town charm.

The historic centre of Rayleigh is home to the Rayleigh Windmill, a 200-year-old windmill that was recently renovated and restored. This is now a popular Rayleigh wedding venue. There is also the Dutch Cottage, the smallest and most unique council house in the UK. And finally, Rayleigh Mount is another key highlight in this beautiful town.

Rayleigh is ideally located just 32 miles east of central London and a short drive to both Southend-on-Sea and Chelmsford. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors in Rayleigh, with Wheatley Wood and Sweyne Park offering open spaces to enjoy year-round.
