Why do people choose facial enhancement?

Facial enhancement (or dento-facial aesthetics) is popular with people who want to enhance a specific facial feature (usually in places where creases and lines have formed) in order to restore a more youthful, vibrant appearance.

For instance, Dermal fillers are popular for lip enhancement and to reduce ‘smokers lines’. Botox is a popular method for getting rid of crow’s feet around the eyes, removing frown lines or hiding wrinkles.

How is facial enhancement performed?

Botox treatment and dermal fillers are minimally invasive facial enhancement procedures that we offer at Southside Dental Options.

Dermal fillers require collagen (or a similar material, such as hyaluronic acid) to be injected under the skin where wrinkles or creases have formed, and these are then ‘filled in’ so that the skin becomes smooth again.

The results are not permanent, and you can expect the effects of dermal fillers to last for around six to eighteen months. Botox treatment is similar, in that a small amount of the protein more properly known as Botulinum Toxin is injected into the muscles of the area being treated.

This acts as an immobiliser and causes the skin and muscles to relax, which in turn prevents existing wrinkles from becoming deeper and new ones developing.

What are the benefits of facial enhancement?

One of the most significant benefits of dermal fillers and Botox is that neither is a permanent procedure.

They are designed to affect the surface and texture of the skin, giving it more volume and a fresher look, but without permanently altering your appearance in the way that facelift surgery might.

The results can generally be seen within 24 to 72 hours, and can last for between 4 to 18 months, depending on the treatment. If you decide at any time not to continue having Botox treatment or dermal fillers, you can expect your natural skin texture and lines to return over time.

All in all, these features make dento-facial aesthetics one of the most straightforward and cost-effective ways of slowing down or alleviating the physical signs of ageing.

Is facial enhancement right for me?

Dermal fillers and Botox can be used in a variety of ways to enhance and revitalise your facial features. If you want to remove creases and wrinkles from around your mouth or simply restore the glow and vitality of your skin, then facial enhancement treatment might be the solution you are looking for.

We can take care of all your needs in-house at our Morphett Vale surgery, where we will factor in your individual circumstances in order to find the most appropriate procedure for you.


Common Questions about Facial Enhancement

How much does Botox cost?

The price charged for Botox treatment in Adelaide will depend on how much Botox is used in a treatment session, which will generally be measured in units. Call us on (08) 8382 2436 or email admin@southsidedental.com.au to find out more.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

The charge for Adelaide dermal filers is usually determined by how many areas of the face or neck are being treated in a session.

How long does Botox last?

Botox is not permanent and you can normally expect the effects to last for approximately 3 months. This means you have the option of having a single course of Botox injections, or continuing with the treatment and having them on a regular or semi-regular basis.
