The lip area is quite vulnerable. Lips in particular have a very thin outer layer, which over time, gradually becomes progressively thinner, losing elasticity and volume.
If you are booked for Lip Enhancement procedures, it is a good idea to view MOST LOVED LIPS. Your cosmetic practitioner will then be guided to what you would like and if this is achievable for you. (Click here to download your copy.)
Frown lines are the vertical lines which appear between your eyebrows when you frown. Frown lines are formed by repeated muscle movement, which can sometimes leave an angry facial expression, even when you’re not frowning.
These are the horizontal lines that form when you raise your eyebrows. Forehead lines are the result of repeated muscle contraction during natural facial expression and raising of the eyebrows.
Crows feet are caused by muscle movement when we smile or squint. Very often these lines become permanent (static wrinkles) even when the muscle is at rest. More and more younger people are investing in cosmetic treatments as a preventative, especially when deep lines are starting to form at an early age.
The shape and contour of the brow is formed by interaction of specific muscle groups, which act as a depressor and/or elevator. These muscles lift and shape the brow. When the lateral brow depressor is weakened, other muscles aid the lifting process; resulting in a flared natural brow, which lifts, opens and widens the brow area.
The tear trough is the groove that runs under the eye between the lower eyelid and the cheeks. Prominent tear troughs appear as hollows and dark circles under eye. This can be hereditary and most commonly occur with age. Whatever the cause, prominent tear troughs, or under eye hollows and dark circles contribute to a face that looks tired and prematurely aged.
As we age, the cheekbone area particularly looses facial volume and our skin becomes thinner. Over time, the overall shape and contour of the face changes as the effects of gravity become apparent. Dermal filler to the
cheeks gives instant results. This procedure replaces lost volume, restores collagen and elastin, and helps restore the youthful contours of the cheek area.
Naso Labial Folds
Nasolabial folds are facial features and commonly known as ‘smile lines’, or ‘laugh lines’. They are the two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. With ageing, the fold may become more pronounced and may be become cosmetically undesirable to some. The most significant factors contributing to the prominence of these folds are excess skin and thinning of the skin tissue.
Accordion lines are the large smile lines that extend outside the lips to the cheeks. They are the result of repeated muscle movement around the mouth and are often present even when you’re not smiling (static Lines).
Marionette lines appear as long vertical lines which generally extend from the corners of the mouth. During the ageing process, they appear as the ligaments around the mouth and chin relax and begin to loose elasticity. Depending on facial structure and anatomy, some people never develop these lines which tend to develop with advancing age.
Jowls, or a sagging jaw line, occurs in many individuals when our facial features begin to loose volume. If a receding chin is accompanied by jowls, then lifting the jowls will give the lower face better balance. Dermal fillers placed in the skin in the recessed area between the jowl and the chin can restore the contour of the jaw line.
The second way to alleviate this condition is to lift the jowls with dermal fillers placed in the cheeks. This will add volume and gently lift the jowls up and away from the chin. The jowls are then less prominent.
Over time, the chin area of some individuals lose their definition as skeletal recession and loss of volume takes its toll. A receding chin may also be hereditary. The chin area can play an important role in appearance and stature. Often just a little volume added below the lower lip can improve your profile.
A double chin (sub mental fullness) is caused by genetics, ageing, or weight. Very often this is hereditary, and most commonly occurs with age. Those who have it are usually self conscious about it, as often they look and feel heavier or older than they actually are.
Clinical trials in the UK and Canada report positive results. A more contoured neck profile and jaw line, is reported following treatment, with a marked improvement in the appearance of a double chin. This procedure is finally here in Australia and available at our RCM.
