Is your face showing signs of age? Do you have wrinkles on your forehead or crow’s feet around the eyes? Does your face look sunken and tired all the time because you have lost the vibrancy of more youthful skin? Perhaps it’s time to understand what treatment options are now available to you. In the past you may have balked at a cosmetic treatment because it would involve plastic surgery. Thankfully, with advancements in medical and dermatological science, you no longer need to worry about going under the knife or spending a fortune on cosmetic surgical procedures. In fact, it can be as routine as going for a teeth whitening or prophylactic cleaning session at a dental practice. That’s right, I am talking about facial injectable treatments that are now offered in the safe and clinical environment of a dental practice.
Besides offering an innovative solution to counter signs of ageing, cosmetic facial injectables provide a non-invasive method to help improve your facial appearance almost overnight. The treatments may be grouped into two categories. Depending on what your specific concern is, you may be interested in either a Filling Agent or Relaxing Agent.
If your face is losing the fullness it once had, then you can use a filling agent to ‘fill’ in the sagging regions of your skin, simply by injecting a gel-like substance under or within a targeted area of your skin. Fillers allow a great deal of precision such that in the hands of an experienced cosmetic dentist, you can add volume to specific areas like your cheeks or lips – even fine wrinkled lines – to enhance the aesthetic appearance of your face with noticeable results. As the name suggests, a relaxing agent is designed to “relax” or ease the tension around the facial muscles that cause wrinkles.
Compared to a surgery, cosmetic facial injectables provide a relatively painless method to achieve a natural looking younger appearance with very predictable and fast results. It is possible to achieve noticeable results in as little as 10 minutes. Compared to an invasive surgical procedure and lengthy recovery period, you will save yourself a significant amount of time with a cosmetic injectable and you can avoid possible the scarring and swelling of surgery that take time to heal.
Facial injectable treatments not only produce predictable outcomes, they are easy and flexible enough for an experienced practitioner to establish costs and work within your budget. At the day’s end you won’t have to undergo the ordeal of surgery while getting the results that you want. Cosmetic injectable procedures are not permanent, so it is never too late to change your mind if you are not completely happy with the outcome. With plastic surgery, its irreversible and you are pretty much stuck with the outcome.
