Dento-facial Aesthetics at Vision Dental

Facial Rejuvenation Services in Menai

Older woman with dark hairIf you’re looking for an extra boost for your smile, a dentist is your best choice when it comes to enhancing your facial features. Dentist Dr Stephen Suster’s experience in dento-facial aesthetics combined with his training in cosmetic dentistry means he can carefully enhance your features to compliment your natural face shape and perfectly frame your smile.

We use a combination of dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers to minimise frown lines and crows feet, as well as define and volumise your lips to create a rejuvenated look, and healthier, wrinkle free skin.  Relaxing a high upper lip can also reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.

Here are three ways our trained team uses wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers to enhance your smile and natural beauty.

1. Wrinkle relaxers reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around your eyes. When you smile, the muscles around your eyes tend to cause lines that gradually become deeper with time. These are called crow’s feet and are located around the corner of your outer eyelids. If they bother you, wrinkle relaxers are an excellent, non-invasive way to manage their appearance.

2. Dermal fillers replace lost volume in the cheeks. A beautiful smile doesn’t just involve your teeth—your cheeks play a big role. When we’re young, our cheeks are plump and full of collagen, but with ageing comes collagen loss. This can result in a hollowed out look that may dull your smile. Dermal fillers restore that lost volume, giving you a fuller look.

3. Wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers work together to manage a gummy smile. Wrinkle relaxers can be injected above the upper lip to weaken muscles, allowing it to not raise as high when smiling. This means less of your gums will be revealed. In addition, dermal fillers can be added directly to the lips for a fuller appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

To better help our patients understand facial aesthetics offered at Vision Dental, we’ve compiled a list of questions we hear most often. If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information—we’re happy to assist you.

Do facial injections hurt?

Facial injections do not hurt most patients, as they’re not much different from a typical shot. We’ll also use a local anaesthetic to numb the area initially.

How much will my treatment cost?

Until we determine exactly what you’re having done, it’s difficult to provide a cost estimate. Once you’re able to visit us for a consultation, we’ll outline your care plan so there are no surprises—we want you to be confident in your decision.

How soon can I see results?

Depending on the treatment you’re having done, some results are noticeable right away while others take time to appreciate. Wrinkle relaxers will require roughly one week before final results are achieved. Dermal fillers may cause initial bruising or swelling at the injection site, though this will subside in the weeks after your treatment and allow you to see your stunning results. We always get you back to review your result after 2 weeks to make sure you’re happy with your facial rejuvenation.

How often will I need additional injections?

Because everyone’s body metabolises at a different rate, it’s difficult to predict how often you will need follow up injections if you choose to continue with maintenance. As a general rule of thumb, wrinkle relaxers may last anywhere between 3 – 6 months, and dermal fillers may last up to 2 years.
