What is facial aesthetics?
Facial aesthetics refers to a group of treatments, which are meant to improve the appearance of certain features of a patient’s face. Facial aesthetics treatments can be carried out by plastic surgeons and dentists who specialised to facial aesthetics. Patients often chose to undergo facial aesthetics treatments to reduce or improve certain signs of aging. Aging is a natural process, which occurs to almost every organism on earth, except certain primitive animals, such as hydras. There is currently research carried out to develop treatments in order to treat the chemical and physiological changes occurring the body with aging, however as of yet none of these treatments are approved or seemingly efficient enough. Until the world’s scientists work out how aging can be treated, only the signs of aging are treatable. Facial aesthetics treatments can help achieve this.

Botox is one of the most well known facial aesthetics treatments. It has been used by many people, including various celebrities as well. Botox is the abbreviation of botulinum toxin. This is a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. These bacteria can sometimes be found in inappropriately tinned food and they can cause serious toxic effects. However, when botox is used in a controlled environment by professionals there are usually minimal risks associated with it and no systemic toxicity occurs. The molecule works by blocking the neuromuscular junctions, which are the junctions where your motor neurons and muscles meet. By blocking these junctions, the aesthetic appearance of the face can be improved and signs of aging can be efficiently reduced. Botox treatments can only be carried out by professionals who specialise to facial aesthetics or cosmetic surgery, as in the hand of charlatans botox can unfortunately become a highly dangerous material. It is therefore very important to only get botox treatments from professionals who are experienced in their field. If you are interested in facial aesthetic treatments in Kent, such as botox, then you should get in touch with Stangrove Court Dental Practice for an appointment.
Many patients wish to improve the appearance of their lips, but would prefer not to undergo any surgical interventions. For these patients lip fillers are a perfect way of doing so. Aging is also a culprit here: as humans age, the collagen and fat content of the lips decreases annually. This can lead to wrinkles and thinner lips. Lip fillers can help reduce the signs of aging in lips. Formerly, one of the most commonly used materials in lip fillers was collagen, however due to its ability to cause allergic reactions in some patients collagen is rarely used today. Today the most common material found in lip fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is a material found across various tissues of the human body, however it is manufactured from bacteria. Hyaluronic acid can interact with the lips’ water content and help make them appear smoother and more youthful. Make sure you only get lip filler treatments from professionals.
