Fine Line and Wrinkle Reduction
Reducing forehead lines can significantly change the way you feel about yourself. We can softly reduce dynamic frown lines by relaxing the muscles that create these lines, giving you natural looking results that look like a younger, fresher version of you. After treating this area, many people say they appear ‘happier’ and ‘fresher’.
Botulinum Toxin injections work to stop the communication between muscles and the nerves causing them to over contract. When we make facial movements for example, the muscles are causing the skin to wrinkle, frown and leave permanent lines. I mean who wants to look grumpy!
Our smile lines (or crows) are positive lines however they can get to the point of unnecessarily showing signs of ageing. Botulinum Toxin can be used to soften the lines by relaxing the muscles in this area without completely freezing the smile.
Gummy Smile is when some people smile, their upper lip elevates too far above their upper teeth, exposing gums. One of the causes is a hyperactive muscle which elevates the upper lip. A gummy smile can be simply and effectively corrected with Botulinum toxin to reduce the activity of the muscle.
Do people often ask you if ‘everything is alright?’, or tell you to ‘cheer up’? If so, then this could be a sign that you have a reverse or ‘upside down’ smile.The muscle in question is called the Depressor Anguli Oris or DAO for short. This is the muscle that is responsible for lowering the corners of the lips and mouth.
