Facial aesthetics usually refer to non surgical treatments for the face that have rejuvenating or anti-ageing properties.
At the most basic level, facial aesthetics are small, non-surgical treatments that make noticeable but subtle enhancements to your appearance.
As we grow older, our skin naturally loses some of its volume and elasticity, and becomes prone to fine lines and wrinkles caused by the repeated contraction of our expressive facial muscles. We offer a number of facial aesthetics treatments to help you look your best. After all, what could better complement a great youthful smile than healthy, younger looking skin?
To help you make an educated decision regarding facial aesthetics, here are some of the pros and cons of this procedure:

Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like substances, either natural or synthetic, that are meant to “fill in” lines in the face. In addition to adding volume to the skin, dermal fillers are also used to plump up the lips. All dermal fillers are temporary.
Botox began being used in cosmetic enhancement procedures just after the turn of the 21st century. It is one of the most widely used, trusted, and safe neuromodulator injectables used to temporarily stop muscle contractions that cause wrinkles on the face.
Results are usually immediate for dermal filler treatments; however, they can take up to 2-4 weeks to fully integrate and settle. The visible effect of dermal filler treatment can last between 3 months to 2 years generally, depending on the filler used and the treated area.
The result wears off gradually as fillers are broken down naturally by the body. This will usually happen evenly and without being noticed, with a return to your original appearance.
You will notice an improvement in lines and the skin will appear smoother over the next five to ten days, however, the full effect will be visible in 2-4 weeks.
You can expect the results to gradually wear off over three to six months, and there is a gentle transition between minimal movements of the muscles to complete function. Anti-wrinkle treatments have no permanent effects.
If you are new to facial aesthetics treatments and would like to experience very natural effects with reduced longevity for your peace of mind, our clinicians are very experienced at offering light treatments for both anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal filler treatments – you can discuss this at your professional consultation.
The first step is to accept our invitation to a complimentary consultation with one of our advanced aesthetics practitioner. This will take around 30 minutes, you’ll be under no obligation and discretion is assured. Our clinician will chat with you and discuss your goals. They will offer their expertise and advice on how to best achieve these goals; and you will have an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. A personal treatment plan will then be generated for you, detailing the treatments, duration of treatment and fees involved.
It’s your face so you need to able to discuss the results you want with your clinician. We will be honest about what is achievable. It’s always best to start cautiously and add more at a later stage if necessary.
With dermal filler treatments, common side effects can include redness, bruising and swelling at the treatment site. Depending on your specific treatment and situation, side effects will be individual to you. This is why you should always ask your healthcare practitioner about the potential side effects and the duration of potential side effects associated with your own treatment.
If you decide to stop having treatments, the results will wear off gradually and you will return to your normal appearance without any lasting effects or visible changes. There is no harm in having a filler or anti-wrinkle treatment just once for a special occasion to give yourself a lovely fresh glow, however, optimum results will be achieved by repeating treatments on a regular cycle or timescale as advised by our clinicians.
