Facial Aesthetics: Why Dentists are Trusted Providers

No matter how young you feel on the inside, the visible tell-tale signs of wrinkles, facial lines and sagging skin can often give away your true age. Non-surgical and non-invasive facial aesthetics treatments are often sought after in an attempt to combat these noticeable signs of ageing.

However, selecting a provider that you can trust to complete the treatment with the utmost care and with minimal risk of complications is important. Here’s why your dentist is ideally placed to do just that…

Extensive Knowledge of Facial Anatomy

As part of their professional training, dentists are required to have a comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy, particularly in facial expression dynamics. As a result, dentists have a greater appreciation of facial proportions. They are therefore able to recommend how best to achieve a balanced, natural look from facial rejuvenation treatments.

Highly Specialised and Transferrable Skills

From years of training and practicing interventions in the oral cavity, dentists develop a high level of the vital skills needed for cosmetic injectable procedures. These specialised skills of clinical dexterity and artistry are easily transferrable and therefore naturally applied to the field of facial aesthetics.

Legal Allowances

Dentists are prescribers by definition. They therefore benefit from legally holding stock of prescription-only drugs and being able to prescribe the necessary medications should a rare complication arise.   

Duty of Care

Dentists and other medical professionals are bound by a duty of care. This means they have the responsibility to maintain the health, safety and wellbeing of their patients. This duty of care applies the minute a patient walks through the door to well beyond treatment.

Safety First

Dental practices are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC are the independent regulator of health and social care in England. They ensure patients are provided with safe, effective, compassionate, and high-quality care.
