City Quay Dental Clinic

Facial Aesthetics

City Quay Dental Clinic creates luminous smiles; however, our meticulous practitioners also offer facial aesthetics services to improve your confidence and make you feel good about your appearance.

Cosmetic Dentistry is Only the Beginning

Cosmetic Dentistry is a centrepiece for many dental practices; it transforms ordinary smiles into smiles that meet and exceed beauty standards. An aesthetically-pleasing smile helps you get noticed, but it also draws attention to your perioral areas — the areas around your smile.

We want our patients to feel positive about their facial features. We, therefore, offer facial aesthetics services to elevate the appearance of your skin.

The skin is the body’s largest and most visible organ. As you age, your skin changes due to several factors, including genetics, ailments, sun exposure and more. Faces are often left uncovered and unprotected, causing facial skin to show age sooner than other areas of the body. When others look at you, we want you to exude confidence, which is the primary reason we offer facial aesthetics treatments that target the signs of ageing.

What is Facial Aesthetics?

Facial aesthetics refers to non-surgical, minimally-invasive treatments that help enhance the look of your facial skin. This discipline addresses patients’ primary concerns about their face — often fine lines, wrinkles, or volume loss.

Our dental practitioners are fully qualified to offer injectable treatments that help restore volume and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, our patients often feel that their reflection looks more youthful.

Facial Aesthetics Treatments at Our Clean and Comfortable Dental Clinic

Every facial aesthetics treatment begins with an in-depth consultation with one of our experienced practitioners. This appointment is crucial, as it enables our team to collect necessary medical information, hear your skin concerns, and determine whether facial aesthetics treatments are appropriate for you. It is also our opportunity to provide you with realistic treatment expectations.

During your consultation, our clinician will assess your skin to determine whether the muscles are causing the skin lines to form or whether the skin has collagen and elasticity. These details help us determine your treatment plan.

Candidates for facial aesthetics treatments will receive non-invasive injections using fine needles in our safe and sterile practice. The number of needles we use depends on the areas we treat during your appointment. Our practitioners have a gentle approach, and numbing agents are not usually required. We target the areas swiftly, and you can return to your day within mere minutes with minimal downtime.

At City Quay Dental Clinic, we offer our patients anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

The solution we use helps relax targeted muscles in the face, prompting a smoother skin appearance. Although the results can be dramatic, this treatment will not radically change your facial appearance. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile or look surprised without the muscles contracting to form wrinkles and creases between your brows.

These injections can help to smooth out the appearance of lines and wrinkles in several facial areas, including:
Patients who are suitable candidates for this treatment should see full results in approximately one week. Results are temporary, often lasting three to four months, at which point we can offer you another round of treatment.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers offer a safe and natural cosmetic treatment that restores volume and fullness to help refresh your appearance. The critical ingredient in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the body but breaks down over time. HA gives your skin flexibility and keeps it hydrated — as the body makes less of this substance, the skin starts to sag and show lines and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers work by plumping up and smoothing away the appearance of wrinkles or reintroducing volume to the lips and cheeks. At City Quay, we use high-quality Teosyal®, a full range of injectable dermal fillers made of non-animal origin and biodegradable hyaluronic acid.
At our premium dental practice, our clinicians use dermal fillers to:
Patients appreciate that they can see results of this treatment instantly, with full results visible a few weeks following treatment once the filler fully integrates into the tissue. Dermal fillers are a temporary facial aesthetics treatment with results that usually last from six months to a year.

The Benefits of Having Facial Aesthetics Treatments Performed by a Dentist

You have options for facial aesthetics; however, the fastidious team at City Quay have the knowledge and training you need to feel confident in our treatments. Here are some of the reasons we recommend getting facial aesthetics from a dentist:

A Precise Injection Technique

Dentists tend to have highly accurate manual dexterity and are incredibly familiar with administering appropriate fine-needle injections.

Detailed Anatomy Knowledge

Dentists undergo extensive training in the anatomy, biochemistry, and physiology of the head and neck in undergraduate dental training. This knowledge is crucial for administering any facial aesthetics injections.

Knowledge in Post Operative Aftercare

Dentists are experts in managing adverse events such as pain, sensitivity, swelling, and infection. We always ensure patients are aware of any treatment risks or complications and have realistic expectations of the results.
