Guide to Facial Aesthetics

Here at Penryn Dental Practice, we offer facial aesthetics treatments to complement the dentistry we provide, as we understand that some people are looking for ways to boost their confidence and appearance beyond their smile. 

What is Facial Aesthetics?

Facial aesthetics is an exciting medical speciality that incorporates a range of non-surgical procedures, such as skin care, skin treatments, anti wrinkle injections and dermal filler treatments, to reduce the signs of aging, enhance natural contours or improve the shape of certain features of the face. With advances in techniques and technology it combines creativity with clinical expertise that is safe and minimally invasive, with very little downtime to recover.

Together with our high standards of a sterile clinical environment, and using the best products available, you will be in safe hands due to our extensive medical and facial aesthetics training. All our facial aesthetic treatments are carried out by our experienced dental practitioner Claire Shaw, at our comfortable practice near Falmouth. Claire has a Level 7 in Injectable Medicine (Masters equivalent) from the prestigious Harley Academy in London, which recognises her competence and experience.

Wrinkle Reduction

The development of lines and wrinkles around our face can be the most obvious early signs of aging. They develop from the contraction of facial muscles that we use in our expressions, and whilst those laughter lines can indicate a friendly face, the frown lines between our eyes, or the lines in our forehead can make us look tired or angry.

Crows Feet



Botulinum toxin (botox) treatments are safe, simple and effective at softening the dynamic wrinkles that can deepen with age. Factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress can cause the wrinkles to deepen and remain. Patient reports show high levels of satisfaction with the treatment, that can be beneficial not only for wrinkle reduction, but also for treatment of high lip lines (gummy smiles), migraines, and excessive sweating.


Dermal Fillers

The aging process affects several layers of the face, starting with bone, muscle, fat and the skin. Dermal filler treatments can be used to smooth and plump the skin, enhance thin lips and create a volumised and more youthful contour to the face. At Penryn Dental Practice we offer Belotero Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that have an excellent safety profile, biocompatibility and integrate well with the dermis to create a natural effect.


Skin Care

In addition to providing a range of leading facial aesthetics treatments it is of course important to look after the outer layer – the skin! We offer clinically proven, evidenced-based skin care from Neostrata, which can address a number of skin issues. The specially developed formulas stimulate cell renewal, boost collagen and even skin tone to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores and under eye puffiness.
