As the body’s production of collagen declines and the muscles on and around your face weaken, fine lines and wrinkles generally develop around your eyes, nose and mouth. Your body fat, including facial deposits, also redistributes and certain areas of your face can lose the fullness it once had.
In recent years, the cosmetic industry has developed cosmetic injectables as an innovative solution to counter these signs of ageing. In response to growing demand, these non-invasive methods are helping more and more people achieve their desired appearance without the need for plastic surgery.
Dentists are now able to utilize their vast skills and experience in the facial region to provide patients with more comprehensive care for facial skin health and provide facial rejuvenation therapies.
Dr. Colleen Loo has a specific interest and expertise in this particular field and has done advanced training with AADFA to be able to provide this sound approach – combining dental and facial treatments under the one roof, making treatment less painful, more convenient and more comprehensive.
What are Cosmetic Facial Injectables?
Cosmetic Facial Injectables may be broadly grouped into two categories: relaxing agents and filling agents. The type of product and application depends on your specific concern and the existing quality of your skin.
Relaxing agents help to ease the involuntary tension around the muscles that cause wrinkles. The process of relaxing the muscles also smoothens out the wrinkles with lasting results.
Filling agents, or dermal fillers involve the injection of a gel-like substance under or within a targeted area of your skin. As the name suggests, the gel fills in wrinkled and sagging skin on your face to recover the tautness and smoothness of younger skin. Fillers are prized for their effectiveness and versatility – allowing great precision when correcting wrinkles while equally adept at adding “volume” to larger areas such as cheeks.
32 Gems Dental provides cosmetic injectables as part of a range of cosmetic treatments designed to rejuvenate the look of your smile and visage. Dr. Colleen Loo combines comprehensive clinical training and experience with excellent aesthetic judgement to provide you with safe and predictable outcomes.
