Facial aesthetics

Closely intertwined with smile aesthetics

Facial aesthetics are closely intertwined with smile aesthetics. If we aim for a perfect, personalised smile, it is essential to consider facial aesthetics as well. Only by doing so can we achieve a complete smile transformation. The aesthetics of a smile should not be limited to the smile itself. This is especially true for the areas immediately surrounding and defining the mouth. Naso labial and marionette wrinkles, as well as the wrinkles above and below the lips, serve as the frame for one's smile. When the aesthetics of this frame do not align with the aesthetics of the smile, both the patient and the dentist often feel unsatisfied. At Zimmermann Dental Aesthetic Studio, we prioritise the health of your oral cavity, the function and aesthetics of your smile, as well as the overall aesthetics of your face.

At Zimmermann Dental Aesthetic Studio, we focus on the health of your oral cavity, optimising the function and aesthetics of your smile, and enhancing the overall aesthetics of your face.

Dermal fillers

With years, skin looses its collagen. Collagen is an important protein and is an essential part of the human body, including skin, muscles, bones and connective tissues. Reduced amounts of collagen in the skin cause sagging skin and loss of volume. The skin becomes thinner, loses elasticity and begins to hang. We can successfully replace the lack of collagen in the skin with the help of dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers belong to non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic procedures. We use them to fill in wrinkles, smooth out accentuated lines and restore volume to facial contours.



Hyaluronic acid is an integral part of our body. It binds water and gives volume to the skin. With age, hyaluronic acid in the skin loses its ability to store water.

The skin loses moisture and volume, becomes drier and thinner, and regenerates less, and the loss of volume results in sagging skin.

Hyaluronic acid has a form of crystal clear gel which is injected in order to restore the lost volume to our face, to smoothen the wrinkles and lines and to model your profile or enhance the volume of your lips.

There are different kinds of dermal fillers, which we choose depending on the result we want to achieve.


  • enhance the volume of the lips
  • shape or enhance the cheekbones
  • lift the corner of the lips
  • enhance or fill in the shallow regions of the face
  • reduce or remove the shadow or the wrinkle under the eyes which caused by the lower eyelid
  • soften the appearance of sunken scars
  • fill or soften static wrinkles, especially on the lower part of the face (marionette wrinkles, laughter lines, smoker's lines)


Botox or botulinum fillers are now widely accepted and discussed openly. Patients' focus has shifted from simply seeking rejuvenation to desiring subtle corrections in facial aesthetics. Botox works by blocking signals from nerves to muscles, effectively preventing muscle contraction. This relaxation of muscles leads to the softening and reduction of wrinkles.

While dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, are used to restore volume and fill specific areas of the face, Botox is primarily used for preventive purposes.

What does that mean?

Let's consider globular wrinkles, which are two parallel wrinkles between the eyebrows that become more pronounced and prominent with age. In this case, applying Botox will inhibit muscle contraction in that particular region. By preventing muscle contraction, frowning is minimised, resulting in the reduction of wrinkles.


  • remove the wrinkles between the eyes (glabellar lines)
  • remove the wrinkles from the forehead
  • remove the wrinkles around the eyes
  • lift-up the corner of the lips
  • lift-up the eyebrows
  • lower down the upper lip in case of over exposed gums - i.e. gummy smile



Patients often come to the Zimmerman dental aesthetic studio unsure about the type of wrinkle treatment they would like to undergo.

The type of treatment we dr. Zimmermann will suggest will depend on the region and the type of wrinkles we want to correct. In general, we use botox for wrinkles that are caused by expression, i.e. more or less pronounced facial expressions - the so-called dynamic wrinkles, while dermal fillers are used for static wrinkles that are visible on the face even when mimics are not present.

It’s safe to say that the chosen wrinkle treatment as well as the quantity of the fillers and/or botox will vary from patient to patient. These parameters are impossible to evaluate before the clinical exam of the patient.
