Facial aesthetics treatments have seen a meteoric rise over the years, with the aesthetics injectables market estimated to grow ‘by 12 to 14% a year over the next five years’.

In short, facial aesthetics treatments are non-surgical treatments that enhance your natural facial features and beauty.

Whilst there are a variety of different aesthetic treatments that target different areas of the face, these treatments can be broken down into two categories:


  • Filler Treatments

  • Dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin to smooth fine lines, enhance facial features, as well as restore facial volume. 

    Popular filler treatments include lip filler, jawline filler, as well as cheek and chin sculpting.


  • Wrinkle Treatments With Botulinum Toxin Type A

  • Botulinum Toxin, commonly referred to as botox, is an injectable neurotoxin that ‘temporarily reduces or eliminates facial fine lines and wrinkles’. Botulinum Toxin is therefore typically used to soften wrinkles that appear from facial movements such as squinting, smiling, and frowning.

    This can help to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines to name a few.

    Now you have a better understanding of what facial aesthetics treatments are as a whole, you might be wondering what facial aesthetics treatments can help with. Facial aesthetics treatments can help to: 

    1. Combat fine lines and wrinkles
    2. Refresh your appearance
    3. Boost your confidence
    4. Enhance your natural beauty 

    1. Combat Fine Lines & Wrinkles

    As we age, we naturally start to see more fine lines and wrinkles on our face. From crow’s feet to laughter lines, fine lines and wrinkles are inevitable.

    Wrinkles can begin to appear as early as age 25, with the majority of people searching for wrinkle treatment between the ages of 40 to 55.

    However, just because wrinkles are inevitable with age, this doesn’t mean you can’t do anything to reduce their appearance.

    Receiving facial aesthetics treatments is one way to help combat the fine lines and wrinkles that you gain with age.

    As such, facial aesthetic treatments can help your skin to look more youthful and supple, giving you a huge boost of confidence.

    2. Refresh Your Appearance

    Facial aesthetics treatments also help to refresh your appearance. As you gain fine lines and wrinkles with age, facial aesthetics can help to restore the volume in your face to give you a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

    According to experts, receiving preventative botox in your mid 20s to early 30s is a good age to keep your appearance fresh. 

    These treatments can smooth your skin to give you a more youthful complexion, and investing in them earlier on is the best way to prevent fine lines from becoming wrinkles.

    By making small adjustments with facial aesthetic treatments, you can also make your face more symmetrical. 

    3. Boost Your Confidence

    It’s natural for our appearance to change over the years. After all, that’s just a part of life.

    That said, you might feel like you need a bit of a confidence boost due to these changes, and facial aesthetics can help you achieve this. In fact, a study found that 87% of participants felt more attractive after receiving dermal filler.

    By choosing an established clinic that you trust to make small adjustments to your face, you can enhance your natural beauty.

    Not only do facial aesthetics treatments, such as Botox, help to celebrate your natural beauty, but they also help to minimise areas that you might feel less confident about.

    In doing so, you will receive a welcomed boost of confidence regarding your appearance, allowing you to focus on living life to the fullest.

    4. Enhance Your Natural Beauty 

    Facial aesthetics treatments are also great for enhancing your natural beauty, helping you emphasise the beautiful features you were naturally blessed with. 

    For instance, lip fillers can help to enhance the shape of your lips and make them more plump, whilst cheek and jaw filler can give you a more chiselled look. 

    As such, facial aesthetics treatments can help you to feel as ‘you’ as you can, whilst still ageing gracefully.
