Frown Lines: Vertical lines between the eyebrows in the area known as the Glabella can give some people an ‘angry’ appearance. These lines are caused by several small muscles we use in this area. We usually use these muscles for frowning and communicating anger to others. These muscles are also used when squinting, so not wearing glasses or sunglasses when you need them can make these lines develop quicker than they otherwise would. Anti Wrinkle Injections can be used to reverse or slow down the progression of these lines. For most people the lines can be quite easily treated with Anti Wrinkle Injections and if necessary, with dermal fillers. The muscles can be treated fully to completely obliterate movement in this area and thereby often obliterate lines or they can be treated partially, depending on the amount of toxin used. Usually treatments need to be repeated twice to three times per year. Over time the lines can require less frequent or less strong treatments as a result.
Worry Lines: Worry lines are horizontal lines that run across the forehead. These lines are caused by the folding of skin when the frontalis muscle contracts. Prominent or scarred lines in this area can make some people look worried when they are not. This area is quite sensitive to Anti Wrinkle Injections and smaller amounts of toxin are often required to treat this muscle relative to other areas in the face. For this reason, this area responds very well to Anti Wrinkle Injections and dramatic results can be achieved. However, over treatment of this area can be quite noticeable as several celebrities unfortunately have demonstrated, so we are very cautious and have a policy of under treatment with free follow up ‘tweaks’ afterwards if necessary. This policy and service applies to all areas where we use Anti Wrinkle Injections, but especially with worry lines.
Smile Lines: Smile lines are the lines that appear at the side of the face when we smile. These lines can be present from childhood and like everything can be more prominent in some individuals. The lines are caused by the tendency for the skin to fold and are totally dependant on the shape of your face, the size of the muscles involved and of course how often you use these muscles to smile and laugh!
Brow Lift: Ladies work tirelessly at achieving the perfect seagull wing eyebrow look. Some people naturally have a nice lift in the outer portion of the eyebrows. Others don’t and may also have excess skin hooding over the outer part of the eye.
Fillers Lip Augmentation: The lips are a focus of facial attention and are said to contain 100 times more nerve endings than the fingertips. Not only are lips handy for talking and eating but can even reveal things about us like distress or worry by variations in their size and colour.
Fillers Nasolabial Folds: Lines stretching from the corner of the nose to the side of the mouth are known as the nasolabial folds. These lines are usually produced as a result of strong muscles of smiling and can be a feature of ageing in some individuals.
Fillers Cheek Lift: One particularly effective treatment is the ‘liquid cheek lift’. This procedure involves injecting cheek volumising product into the cheeks below the natural cheek fat pads to replace lost volume in these areas. Lifting the cheeks can be one of the most dramatic, yet ‘hard-to-put-your-finger-on’ improvements to somebody’s face. Typically a treatment would need 2mls of filler. Local anaesthetic is used to minimise any pain involved with the procedure.
