Treatment Area

Glabella lines(frown lines) are the vertical creases also knows as the eleven lines. These lines appear over time in between the brows from frowning,concentrating or squinting Generating a tired or angry look. When treated with anti-wrinkle injections, it will soften the intensity of the muscles that cause the glabellar lines, resulting in a rejuvenated and more relaxed appearance.
Does your crow’s feet bother you? Do you see them every time you smile?Crow’s feet are one of the major signs of ageing. These lines start from the corner of the eyes and radiate a;; the way to the temples and upper cheeks. The skin around your eyes is 40% thinner than the skin of the rest of the body. Hence, making ot very delicate and susceptible to the effects of ageing. This is the very reason why your eyes are usually first place to show fine lines, creases and wrinkles. When using anti-wrinkle injections in this area, it relaxes the muscle that surrounds the corners of the eyes, smoothing the skin out.
Forehead wrimkles are are horizontal lines accross the forehead which occur when raining the eyebrows. They are used to convey feelings and human emotions such as fear, suprose and happiness. These wrinles are caused by the action of the frontalis muscle on the forehead. Anti-wrinkle injections are injected in the frontalis muscle causing relaxation of the muscle, thus reducing the upward movement of the eyebrow and stopping the skin from wrinkling.
A dimpled chin occurs is caused by an overly active chin muscle(mentalins muscle). The chin muscle. In some people, this muscle is particulartly active, which can lead to a stronger contraction. This can lead to the appearance of wrinkles or a ‘orange peel’ effect. A dimpled chin can easily treated with anti-wrinkle injections into the mentalis muscle to eliminate these dimples that will lead to a smoother and fresh appearance
Gummy smile can be treated with neurotoxin that is safe and effective. For people with a high smile line, when they smile they show too much of their gum above the teeth, creating the gummy smile. A gummy smile reduction can be achieved by weakening the hyperactive muscles and reducing the elevation of your upper lip.
Bunny lines are the diagonal and vertical wrinkles that appear on the bridge of the nose and on either side of the nose with repeated contractions(squinting and laughing) of the nasalis muscle. Neuromuscular toxin can smooth out creases in the nose.
Lip lines are also known as smokers or barcode lines. These vertical lines develop along the top lip are caused by the action of the orbicularis oris muscle that acts like a purse string. Although non-smokers often get these lines as they grow older, they tend to be more prominent in smokers. If you wear lipstick, you may notice that your lipstick bleeds into the lines. This can be helped with using anti-wrinkle injections to reduce muscle movement which will as a result reduce their appearance and help restore the definition of the area around the mouth.
As we age the eyebrows begin to descend. This is due to volume loss in the soft tissue and bone structures of the face. Minimally invasive treatment like neuro toxin injections into the muscles that pull the eyebrows downward will help elevate and shape the eyebrow and relax the dynamic wrinkles.

At the sides of the mouth there is a muscle called the depressor anguli oris. This attaches the edge of the lips and pulls downwards towards the jawline. As we age, this muscle can become overactive. By placing small accurate amounts of neuro-toxin on each side, it causes the muscle to relax. The relaxation allows the corners of the mouth to lift and give a more harmonious appearance in the lower face.
