Everyone wants flawless and perfect skin, be it the teenagers or the elderly, the fact that ever glowing and healthy skin attracts people is undeniable.
People try a lot of options on their own for minor cosmetic problems but often end up worsening the situation even further.
Facial aesthetics is a category under cosmetic treatments that help in boosting and augmenting your natural beauty. It aims to conceal or resolve the flaws that may develop due to ageing or otherwise. Facial aesthetics is a rapidly progressing branch, and after dentistry, doctors are specialising in facial aesthetic treatments. It involves multiple techniques based on your skin type, age, and several other factors.
What Are Facial Aesthetics?
Facial aesthetics are small cosmetic, non-surgical treatment modalities performed to improve your facial appearance. They can veil or even slow down the process of ageing and give you a youthful look for a longer time. It utilises several synthetic or natural chemicals to augment your beauty. These are injected under your skin in specialised areas using microneedles.
Skincare treatments that are useful when your skin becomes tanned or damaged due to excessive exposure to sun, pollution, or any other reasons, are also included under facial aesthetics. They encompass every modality from anti-wrinkle treatments to Restylane skin boosters
They provide very subtle and gradual improvements; hence, they don't seem very pretentious. This not only boosts your self-esteem but also turns all eyes towards you.
These are clinically safe, and FDA approved but should be performed only by professionals because you would not want an amateur or unskilled person like someone at the saloon roughly handling your skin.

What Treatments Are Included Under Facial Aesthetics?
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is the active ingredient that is most commonly used in all whitening products and is delivered either as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.
The treatments provided by Conway House under facial aesthetics are as follows:
- Botox: Botox is a cosmetic anti-wrinkle treatment that uses Botulinum toxin A to stave off the fine lines and wrinkles from your face and give you a rejuvenated, youthful look. The areas which are targeted under this include frown lines, eyebrows, forehead lines, and the area around lips or mouth. Botox is a safe and effective treatment that can give you startling results, but it is not permanent. The toxin is injected into the targeted areas with microneedles. The procedure is almost painless and does not require anaesthesia. It usually takes only about 5-10 minutes to complete the procedure. It works by relaxing the facial muscles whose tension is responsible for the wrinkles and fine lines on your face.
It lasts for about 3-6 months, and you will need retreatment after that; otherwise, your skin will exhibit the wrinkles once again.
There are no or minimal side effects. Local irritation and redness may persist for a few days due to the needle prick, but it usually resolves by itself and does not require any specific treatment. However, it is contraindicated in pregnant and lactating females because it blocks the neuromuscular junctions, which may have an antagonistic effect.
- Dermal fillers: These are a way to fill your loose and saggy skin to tighten it and give it a natural glow. The dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid and are FDA approved to contour and volume your facial structure. With the passage of time, your skin loses elasticity because of the loss of natural hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers tend to replace them with synthetic hyaluronic acid and give it a similar youthful look. It can reduce decades from your face in just a few injections. Hyaluronic acid also moisturises your skin and gives it a bright and radiant glow. The areas which are targeted by dermal fillers include lips, cheeks, acne scars, tear troughs, chin, and jawline.
The procedure is done by numbing the area by using a topical anaesthetic. It lasts for 15-45 minutes, depending on how many areas are to be treated and how much improvement they require. The results will be visible from the very first treatment, but to maintain it for a longer duration, frequent treatments would be required at an interval of 2-3 months. This is because the therapy is not permanent, and the body breaks down even the synthetic hyaluronic acid injected under your skin. There are no prominent side effects, but due to injection by microneedles, itching, redness, inflammation, some tenderness may persist for a few days.
The application of ice is recommended after the treatment to soothe the skin and relieve the symptoms.
- Skin peel treatment: Skin peel treatment is aimed at enhancing the complexion and texture of your skin by a comprehensive skincare system called the Priori® forte skincare system. It provides exfoliation and moisturisation. It also boosts your body to produce natural collagen and elastic that enhances your skin naturally. It is based on lactic acid and provides pharmaceutical anti-ageing. It is an entirely safe and natural treatment option. The peels consist of 50-75% free acid and help you with premature ageing.
The results will appear gradually, and a course of 6 treatment sessions is recommended for the best results. You should visit us regularly, and our dentist will prescribe you when would the next treatment be required. Other skin care products included in this skincare system include Facial cleanser to exfoliate and cleanse your skin, facial lotion to decrease fine lines and soften your skin, facial cream to ameliorate skin tone, and skin perfection lotion.
- Restylane skin boosters: It is a form of synthetic moisturiser injected under your skin to make it smooth, soft and glowing. Skinboosters treatment makes your skin more firm and helps them regain their elasticity. Restylane reviews have shown that it is highly efficient in providing you with radiant skin. This is quite a long-lasting last treatment and may last up to 12 months because of the cross-linked hyaluronic acid used in it.
