Everyone is an individual, and we all look different. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, and this also applies to our aesthetic and the way that we age. This is why there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution, and even if there was, it would look ridiculous if applied to everyone in the same manner. There are many factors that play apart in how each of us age and anti-wrinkle injections can be used in many areas of the face and body to help improve the areas appearance. Reducing the formation of expression lines with anti-wrinkle injections is the well-known method of reducing wrinkles in certain parts of the face, and it is very possible to do this in a ‘natural’ looking way. It is also possible to elevate some features of the face, such as the brow, and reshape the face using the same anti-wrinkle injections.
The lines that occur across the forehead when you lift your eyebrows can be softened with some anti-wrinkle injections. You might lift your eyebrows as you have an expressive face, or to elevate your brow when you are trying to open up the eye area. The amount that is used to soften these lines depends entirely on the result you are after, the severity of the wrinkles, and size of your forehead.
As we age our brow often gets lower which can contribute to looking tired or angry. Or perhaps you have always had a lower set brow and would like to get a bit more a flared brow. Anti-wrinkle injections might just be what you are after.
Whether you are frowning, thinking, or squinting, the lines in between the eye brows can give off a negative vibe to anyone looking at you. The frown muscles also contribute to pulling down the brow and hiding your eyes. Reducing the your ability to create these frown lines can really change your look and how others may be perceiving you.
We all love to laugh and smile, so there is nothing wrong with having some crow’s feet/laughter lines. If you prefer them to be a little softer or non-existent, then anti-wrinkle injections can help. You can let us know how fond of character lines you are.
Down turned mouth
Sometimes you won’t even know you are doing it, but creating a frown or pulling down the corners of your mouth can really create a sad look, and contribute to early aging in the lower face. Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers may be helpful in this area.
A square jaw can be attractive on both males and females, however if this is not your preference, and a more heart shaped face is more your desired aesthetic, then softening the bulk of the masseter (chewing) muscle might be the answer for you.
With an active chin muscle (mentalis), the formation of a chin crease can develop very early on, and for some people this is not a desirable look. Not only can anti-wrinkle injections help to reduce the chin crease, it can also help to create a more heart shaped and longer appearing face.
The neck has can be a problem area for many as we age due to skin texture and laxity. Protruding bands of muscle also add to the ‘stringy’ appearance of the neck. Reducing their appearance with anti-wrinkle injections can help to reduce the ‘turkey’ like appearance.
To help add definition to a jawline line like ‘Queen Nefertiti’, anti-wrinkle injections can help to lift the lower face and result in a more structured appearance of the jawline.
Vertical Lip Lines
Peri-oral lines, often referred to as ‘smokers lines’ are formed due to continue movement of the lips over time and the loss of volume in the tissue above the lip. Soften muscle contraction can help prevent the formation of these lines and help reduce the appearance of any existing lines.
Grinding your teeth at night could result in an enlarged jaw size, and also some hefty dental bills in the future. Relaxing the masseter muscle with anti-wrinkle injections can help to reduce grinding and excessive muscle contraction.
The fine lines that can appear on the side of the nose occur due to scrunching up the nose like a ‘bunny’. This can be a cute look, but over time the lines can get deeper and can start becoming as distraction from your eyes and other great features. Reducing the contraction can help prevent and soften these lines.
