Facial aesthetics treatment has become one of the fastest growing areas of cosmetic business in the UK, due to it offering quick and simple solutions to clients looking to improve aspects of the face area, as well as being easier to access than traditional cosmetic surgery. These procedures are also considered as an affordable option by many clients when compared to the more traditional options.

When you are looking for facial aesthetics treatments you will quickly see that this term includes many different solutions, but knowing what each one is used for will help guide you to the best product that will match your needs and create the desired results you are looking for.

What follows should not be seen as a definitive guide to this subject, as an article of this size could never be such.  However, when seen as a starting point the reader may be able to take away some ideas that they can carry out deeper research on for themselves.

At all times it is important to state that anyone thinking of undergoing any of the procedures discussed in this piece should seek professional medical advice before doing so.


When it comes to cosmetic procedures that are carried out via injection, Botox is the first one that comes to mind for many people. Injections of botulinum toxin are used to relax the tiny muscles in the face, helping to hide lines and wrinkles thus creating a more youthful appearance to the face.

Botox is a quick and relatively painless procedure to go through, with most treatments taking five to ten minutes to fully apply. It is important to understand that this is not a permanent solution, the effects of treatment will wear off over time, meaning clients who have this treatment may find it needs to be repeated as often as every 3 months.

Dermal fillers

As we get old the skin of our faces starts to lose the hyaluronic acid that it needs to stay looking fresh and youthful.  Dermal filler is used to compensate for this by injecting hyaluronic acid gels into areas of the face, this helps to plump up the face and create the appearance of youth.

Once the dermal filler is applied it will help to disguise lines, wrinkles, and folds in the skin of the face. Again, this treatment is not a permanent fix, with results lasting up to 12 months (up to 6 months when used on lips).

Like many medical treatments, these types of treatment carry a risk of infection and other complications. So, anyone thinking of undergoing these types of treatments needs to be fully aware of such, along with given details of what they should do if they have negative side effects.
