The forehead, the midface and the lower face can be maintained and rejuvenated with a variety of nonsurgical & surgical treatments. Learn the terminology, explore the options and you'll make better, more knowledgeable choices.
Horizontal lines of facial expression are common here. The frontalis muscle lines. Over time the skin gets thinner and the lines get deeper. Treatment involves muscle relaxing injections every 4 - 6 months.
Glabella (Midbrow) Lines
Vertical lines between the eyes (aka the "11") and horizontal "bunny" lines at the bridge of the nose are caused by facial expression & deepen over time. Treatment with Botox or Dysport muscle relaxing injections lasts 4 - 6 months.
Crowsfeet Wrinkles & Infraorbital Lines
Expression lines that radiate outward from the corner of the eye (lateral canthus) and lower eyelid deepen with age. Muscle relaxing injections every 4 - 6 months provide dramatic softening and a more youthful appearance.
Natural creases beside the nose that deepen with age or extreme weight change can be rendered less obvious with Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse fillers or with fat injections from your own body.
Vertical creases beside the mouth that appear with increasing age may appear independently or converge with the nasolabial folds. They too are treated with Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse or fat injections.
Even nonsmokers may develop unsightly lines which radiate outward from the lips. Muscle relaxing injections are the first line of treatment. Laser peels are an option for deeper or persistent lines.
A chin with a strong cleft may be desirable in men, but less so in women. Muscle relaxing injections can soften the cleft for a more feminine appearance. The same therapy can soften a dimpled chin.
Treat a friend, a relative or a co-worker.
Great for the bridal party, the graduate or just for fun!
