Facial Aesthetics Q & A

What are facial aesthetics?

Facial aesthetics refers to a host of medical procedures aimed to reverse signs of aging and providing you with a more youthful, vibrant appearance. These procedures can help boost your self-confidence by addressing cosmetic flaws, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Forehead lines
  • Facial creases and folds
  • Lost facial volume
  • Thin lips
  • Double chin

What facial aesthetics are offered?

The Dr. Theerathada at Westlake Smile Studio offers a variety of facial aesthetic treatments, including:


If your skin has lost its glow due to wrinkles, large pores, or mild to moderate scars, microneedling may be the answer. Microneedling involves pricking the skin with tiny needles that create micro injuries which encourage the growth of new collagen and skin tissue. Over time, the result is firmer, smoother, more toned skin.


BOTOX is the brand name of a toxin that when injected into your skin, causes facial paralysis of muscles that contract and cause wrinkles. These injections, typically in the forehead, limit the contraction of facial muscles and prevent deep aging lines.


Using the active ingredient synthetic deoxycholic acid, Kybella injections help get rid of fat below your chin — commonly known as “double chin. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in your body. Treatment permanently destroys fat cells, leading to a reduction in fullness below your chin.


This dermal gel filler is injected below the skin to add facial fullness or improve the appearance of fullness and wrinkles. Juvederm fillers are most often used on the cheeks, around the mouth and nose, or to plump up thin lips.

All facial aesthetic treatment results vary and typically require multiple in-office sessions to achieve optimal results.

Are facial aesthetics safe?

Yes, when Dr. Theerathada at Westlake Smile Studio administers facial aesthetics, the procedure is perfectly safe. She takes every precaution to make sure you have a comfortable, convenient experience. However, as is the case with all medical procedures, there are potential side effects, including:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Pain at injection site
  • Infection
  • Headaches
  • Fever

In most cases, side effects from facial aesthetics are temporary and should subside quickly on their own.
