Why are dentists best placed to administer facial aesthetics treatments?

Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. As collagen production decreases, skin loses its volume and elasticity, causing the skin to sag. Excessive exposure to ultraviolet light can speed up this process, breaking down your skin’s connective tissue at a faster rate. A high price to pay for days spent basking in the sun!

At New Smile Fulham, we offer a range of cosmetic treatments to slow down the ageing process and reduce the appearance of sun-damaged skin. Wrinkle relaxing injectables weaken individual facial muscles to prevent frown lines, crow’s feet or lines on the forehead. Alternatively, dermal fillers add plumpness and definition to specific areas of your face that have lost volume over time.

If you’re looking to achieve a more youthful complexion, you might be more likely to turn to dermatology or cosmetic clinics rather than your local dental practice. Facial rejuvenation might not have earned its place on the traditional list of dental treatments, but dentists are some of the best-placed professionals to administer wrinkle relaxing injectables. Why is this?

You may have seen examples of facial rejuvenation treatments gone wrong, where perhaps too much wrinkle relaxation has been added in the wrong area – this can cause the face to look frozen and strange. Dentists spend a great deal of time studying facial anatomy; we’re experts on the structure of facial muscles and bones, meaning we know exactly where to administer injections for the most natural result.

Injections of any kind can be slightly uncomfortable, especially if they’re not administered by a skilled professional. You can expect quicker and less painful treatment from a dentist – we spend hours a week injecting anaesthetic before dental procedures, so we’re well practised!

Choosing the best treatment for you isn’t always as simple as it sounds – you might’ve been weighing up the different options for months or even years! You can do all the research you like, but sometimes all you need is to have a proper conversation with someone who knows the ins and outs of everything on offer. That’s why we offer a FREE consultation at our South West London cosmetic clinic for anyone who’s tired of pondering their options alone. If you’re still not sure after your visit, there’s no obligation to proceed.

We’d love to hear from you! Contact us at to book your complimentary visit today.
