As we age, the skin loses elasticity, volume and structural support which leads to the formation of deep lines, grooves and folds – especially around the mouth. In addition to this, our lips, which are perhaps the most prominent aesthetic feature of our face, begin to lose volume and become thinner and less well defined. Naso-labial and Marionette lines are formed by skin folds running between the nose, mouth and chin. These furrows are among the first to appear on the aging face, and together with lip enhancement, are the primary areas treated by Dermal Fillers to improve facial aesthetics.
Dermal Fillers are a temporary treatment method, that provide immediate results for eliminating these facial lines. They consist of a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies and is therefore broken down by natural means and is hypo-allergenic.
Realising that the result of aesthetic dentistry are limited by the condition of the facial tissues surrounding the mouth means that Dermal Filler treatment is the logical next step for Dentists wishing to frame their artistry. Dentists must use aesthetic principles to harmonise the dentition; muscles of mastication; lips, cheeks and nose – training in Dermal Filler therapy will allow a truly holistic approach to facial aesthetic enhancement.
