Facial esthetics encompasses a range of procedures and treatments designed to enhance the natural beauty and appearance of the face. From non-surgical treatments to surgical interventions, facial esthetics can address various concerns, including wrinkles, volume loss, uneven skin tone, and facial contours. Facial esthetic procedures can target areas such as the forehead, eyes, cheeks, nose, lips, jawline, and overall skin texture. Symmetry, proportion, and the relationship between different facial components significantly determine facial attractiveness. At the Periodontal Center of Excellence Dental Implant Center, facial esthetic treatments aim to enhance these features and create a more pleasing and youthful appearance.

PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin)
PRF – Platelet Rich Fibrin is a cutting-edge technique that utilizes the patient's own blood, processed to concentrate platelets and fibrin, which are then used for various therapeutic purposes. Unlike its counterpart PRP (Platelet Rich Protein), which also contains white blood cells, growth factors, and leukocytes, PRF can trap these essential components within a fibrin matrix without releasing them too quickly. This unique characteristic ensures a controlled and sustained release of growth factors every 4-6 minutes over two weeks. The implications are truly astounding! By employing PRF during microneedling treatments, clinicians can witness enhanced healing processes and significantly reduced downtime. The slow-release mechanism of PRF allows tissues to continuously benefit from the therapeutic effects of growth factors that promote regeneration and rejuvenation. It's no wonder why the potential applications of this groundbreaking technology wow professionals in the medical community.
Microneedling with PRF
Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is an innovative and advanced aesthetic procedure that utilizes the power of tiny needles to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate collagen production. During this treatment, a skilled medical professional uses a specialized device equipped with numerous microscopic needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the surface of the skin. These micro-injuries then trigger the body's natural healing response, prompting increased blood flow and delivering essential nutrients to the treated area. The procedure microneedling with PRF incorporates Platelet-Rich Fibrin into this procedure. PRF is derived from your own blood, obtained through a simple blood draw before being processed in a centrifuge machine. This process separates red blood cells and concentrates platelets, growth factors, and white blood cells into a gel-like substance called fibrin matrix or PRF clot. Combining microneedling with PRF application directly onto the treated areas enhances results by harnessing your body's regenerative properties for optimal tissue repair and regeneration.
Microneedling with PRF treats the following conditions
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Pore size reduction
- Sagging cheeks and jowls
- Collagen production – buildable therapy (each application builds on the previous)
- Stimulating cell turnover
Bio-fillers are injectable treatments that restore lost volume, soften wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. They are commonly used to plump lips, fill in nasolabial folds, restore cheek volume, and improve the appearance of under-eye hollows.
Facial Laser Contouring
Surgical procedures such as facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid surgeries can address sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and excess fat deposits. These procedures aim to restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance by lifting and tightening the facial tissues.
Lip augmentation procedures, including injectable fillers or fat transfer, enhance the lips' size, shape, and symmetry. This can create fuller, more defined lips, adding balance and proportion to facial esthetics.
