Skin health and aesthetics always go hand in hand. With 2 in 3 Australian adults developing skin cancer before the age of 75, skin health and aesthetics have become primary health concerns and an area in which Dentists are able to take a lead role in prevention and care.
As the only health professionals who work closely with the face every minute of everyday, Dentists have a duty to assist patients to achieve optimal skin health, and in turn aesthetics, across the dento-facial region. While Botox injections and dermal fillers will treat specific problems, they are simply two techniques amidst a plethora of facial rejuvenation procedures required to achieve optimal skin health and aesthetics.
As with tooth-brushing for oral health, Dentists can start by counseling patients on the role of good nutrition, exercise, staying out of the sun and use of appropriate home care products in order to achieve the best results from facial rejuvenation therapies.
Botox and Dermal Fillers will do nothing to improve the “quality” or health of skin. Pigmentation, sun damage, broken capillaries, scars, fine and static lines will all remain and detract from the overall picture. Dentists can now learn to incorporate procedures like microdermabrasion, chemical peels, lasers and skin tightening devices into their practice. Undergoing AADFA Skin Rejuvenation Training will allow Dentists to achieve optimal results for patients while increasing the success of their practice.

Dyschromia - alterations of the color of the skin – are most commonly related to sun exposure and can be treated successfully with lasers, lights and prescription products
Fine dilated blood vessels (Telangiectasia) that detract from the appearance of the skin can easily be treated with laser
Acne is not just a concern for adolescents and a range of treatments and products are now available to improve the condition
Skin quality and aesthetics go hand in hand. Treatments such as lasers, lights, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and topical prescriptives ensure the skin remains radiant, smooth and healthy as we age.
