Minimally invasive facial rejuvenation is the keyword in today’s cosmetic and plastic surgery world. There has been an unparalleled rise in the number of people worldwide seeking facial rejuvenation with the use of minimally invasive procedures. Minimal downtime and almost instant results are what the patient’s want today. The big shift in aesthetic medicine has crossed the boundaries of specialities and medical practitioners of every field today are expected to have training and expertise in aesthetic medicine.
Over the last decade, medical practitioners have grown aware and have accepted the need to adopt a more cordial approach with health care rather than limiting themselves to one speciality only. The number of cosmetic surgeries performed in the year 2018 itself was approximately 16 million, which is a very large number in itself. Out of these Botox, Dermal fillers, and facial contouring procedures such as lasers, Kybella, Ultherapy, and facial threads have been the most popular ones. Hair treatment and regrowth options such as PRP treatment, QR678 treatment, and Stem Cell Therapy have overtaken the traditional hair fall treatments. However, the cause of concern has been the lack of experienced and expert medical practitioners who are licensed to perform this non-invasive and minimally invasive procedure.
Dentists by the virtue of their education in facial anatomy, practical skills, and field of work in the facial region are the best candidates for providing facial rejuvenation treatments and therapies to their patients. A dentist’s education is much more than just teeth and gums, dentist counsel people for nutrition and quitting habits like smoking and drinking that cause premature aging, help people with breathing difficulties and help in posture and lifestyle habits. It is therefore naturals that dentists are the perfect candidates for undergoing training for facial skin health and facial rejuvenation treatments i.e. everything from Botox to dermal fillers including chemical peels, Ultherapy, Kybella, lasers etc. Also dentist are trained to establish a strong, long-term relationship with their patents for which they are trained early on in their careers. Excellent communication skills are a necessity in the world of aesthetic treatments as they are key to understanding the patient’s need and explaining the procedures risks and communication for expected results.
