Receive cosmetic injectables from a qualified dentist at Dental Pearls.
At Dental Pearls, we understand that achieving a great smile can sometimes involve treating more than just your teeth. Sometimes it can also involve treating areas like the lips, nasolabial folds and marionette lines to help accentuate the results from your dental treatment. This is why we offer dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections as cosmetic options to our patients.
Dentists have some of the highest undergraduate training in facial anatomy making them qualified candidates to administer a range of injectable treatments. All of the cosmetic injectable treatments administered at Dental Pearls are done so by an industry professional whom has undergone training in dento-facial aesthetics and injectable technique to ensure your safety along with optimal results.
What are dento-facial aesthetics?
Dento-facial aesthetics specifically addresses the relationship between your teeth and mouth and the surrounding facial structures (like the lips, cheeks, forehead and chin). Using a range of minimally invasive techniques helps to create harmony between your features.
Think of it like a picture; a beautiful frame can naturally help draw the viewers eye to the focal point of the picture. By accentuating other elements of your face through a combination of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, it can help to draw people’s eye to your lovely smile.
Previously, dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections were used independently from each other. Now, the beauty industry understands that some of the best results can be achieved through combining the two treatments.
What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Ageing is inevitable. No matter how much water you drink, how healthy you are or what your nightly skin regime is, eventually, everyone will start to notice the signs of ageing.
Although there is nothing wrong with wrinkles, many people prefer the ‘smooth skin look’.
Contrary to belief, anti-wrinkle injections are more of a preventative measure than a ‘cure for wrinkles’. By blocking the signal from your brain to the muscles in that area, it prevents any deeper lines from forming. Essentially, if you have anti-wrinkle injections and your brain says, ‘lift eyebrows up’, your forehead’s response is, ‘I’m not listening’.
Benefits of Anti-Wrinkle Injections
There are many benefits to anti-wrinkle injections. Some of these include:
- It’s a non-surgical option to treat signs of ageing
- Many people proclaim to experience minimal discomfort
- The procedure is quick
- You can wear make-up straight after your appointment
- You’ll notice a difference in as little as 3 days
What are dermal fillers?
Unlike anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers are made from a gel-like substance that are designed to add volume and smooth the surface area of your skin.
Sceptical, many people ask the question, ‘Are dermal fillers safe?’. Although all procedures carry some risks, in the right hands, dermal fillers are an effective way to restore volume and address signs of ageing. In fact, many dermal fillers are commonly created using naturally occurring substances in your skin.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Since the introduction of dermal fillers, a couple of decades ago, dermal fillers continue to increase in popularity as they can target common signs of ageing. Some of the benefits that patients highlight include:
- No downtime
- Immediate results
- Most fillers are based on substances that benefit the skin (the gift that keeps on giving)
- The results are known to be long-lasting
- Can be reversible
Cosmetic Injectables FAQs
There are several factors that play a role in the longevity of your fillers. This includes the fillers material, consistency and the area of the face where it is injected. Depending predominantly on the area, fillers can last anywhere between 6 – 18 months.
It is very rare for dermal filler to move after it has been injected however, it is not impossible. This is why it is important to follow aftercare instructions carefully.
To ensure that your filler doesn’t move after injection, avoid:
- Exercising for 24 hours
- Excessive hot and cold temperatures for 2 weeks (this includes facials and lasers)
Flying overseas (due to the pressure in the plane cabin)
