The Pros & Cons Of Facial Aesthetics
As a reputable dental practice here in London’s Clerkenwell, we work hard to provide patients with all the information they need about any cosmetic treatments they choose to have with our expert dentists. In this post, we’ll focus on our facial aesthetics treatments, and what you need to know about them.
Pros: easy, effective and effortless
Whatever injectable you choose – whether botox injections or dermal fillers – pain and discomfort is always kept to a minimum, in part thanks to the fine needles we use and the expertise of our practitioners, who know where to administer injectables and how. And, because there’s no downtime or time off work needed, and little in the way of side-effects typically experienced in the average client (besides mild redness or swelling), it’s truly an effortless process.
What’s more, both have longevity. Botox injections may last up to 4 months, while dermal fillers can last up to 18. In other words, you’ll have a long-lasting treatment without the risks of surgery, and can easily change the quantity you have in the future. In addition, they’re both considered to be extremely safe aesthetic treatments – even though botox injections have sometimes been perceived negatively in the press.
Cons: repeat, expense, expectations
While there are countless advantages to botox injections and dermal fillers, we recognise that there is upkeep involved. While long-lasting, results don’t last forever – so to prolong the effects, more is needed over time. However, when spread out over the same period as a surgical procedure may last, injectables often come in at a smaller cost, and as we’ve highlighted, come with fewer risks.
Finally, while we would state that you need to have reasonable expectations whatever your treatment, it’s still true that many people try facial aesthetics treatments expecting a ‘miracle cure’. For example, some who choose botox injections expect their wrinkles to be erased or reversed, while others want the look of a certain celebrity. We will always be open and honest about what can be achieved and will never make promises about how you may look.
To sum up, we think that the good always outweighs the bad with facial aesthetics – it’s part of our commitment to patient care that we only offer treatments that we think can enhance your appearance and boost your confidence and wellbeing. If you’re looking for something low-risk but lasting, a quick fix that can be tailored to your requirements, and an easy appointment you can book over a lunchbreak, then look no further.
