What are Facial Aesthetics?

Treatments like Botox and Fillers that Accentuate Your Natural Beauty

Facial Aesthetics is the classification of cosmetic treatments designed to accentuate your features and enhance natural beauty. These treatments often entail the use of Botox  or Juvederm and are designed to soften expression lines and define facial contours, which rejuvenates and refreshes your natural skin. Many times administered by a cosmetic dentist, Facial Aesthetics enhance the beauty of your smile by:

  • Making skin appear to be healthier
  • Tightening wrinkled or drooping skin
  • Fighting signs of aging
  • Creating symmetry on the face

By targeting these cosmetic issues on the forehead, lips, cheeks, and wrinkle areas, facial aesthetics can help create an overall more pleasing face.

Facial aesthetics help create a more pleasing face by aligning patients’ faces with the characteristics that often define beauty. A variety of scientific studies find that people perceive facial beauty as symmetric, youthful, simple, and familiar. Facial Aesthetic treatments like Botox fillers help smooth the lines on your face that cause a lack of symmetry and signs of aging that lead many people to lack confidence in their appearances. This smooth, simple appearance brought to you by Botox and fillers can accentuate your beautiful facial features safely and naturally.

Facial Aesthetics treatments are injected into the areas that can help you face align with these generally desirable characteristics, allowing you to accentuate your features and enhance your natural beauty.

Aesthetic treatments come in a variety of forms, all of which have the ability to target various portions of the body. Aesthetic treatments are a rapidly growing field that utilizes both new and trusted techniques developed by leading doctors and scientists in the field. Facial Aesthetics, specifically, break down to two major categories:

  • Botox: Botox utilize purified botulinum toxins to help prevent and reduce signs of aging on the face. Botox relaxes facial muscles that lead to lines and wrinkles and is one of the most well-known facial aesthetic treatments.
  • Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are designed to rejuvenate the full, youthful appearance of the skin. Giving your skin this boost helps reverse the visible signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, thin lips, and dark circles. One of the most trusted Dermal Fillers, when administered from a professional, is Juvederm. Juvederm injections are delivered under the skin from a thin needle and can last 6 months to one year dependinging on the treatment site.
