Before & After
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.)
It is quite normal to have some upper gum showing when you smile- however some people have an excessive amount showing which is due to strong muscle activity above the upper lip. This is known as a ‘Gummy Smile’. It is simply treated with muscle relaxants. The insertion points for injection specifically target the strong muscular action which raise your upper lip when you smile. Following treatment- results will show less gum visible when you smile.
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. The younger generation are starting to invest in anti-wrinkle 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.
Chin – Orange Peel Effect
Over time, the chin area of individuals can lose definition. As skeletal recession and loss of volume takes its toll in the ageing process, your chin may appear to have an “orange peel effect”. While there is no medical cause for concern, if you have a dimply orange peel texture on you chin, you might feel self-conscious about it.
Jawline procedures are also a popular non-surgical option for both men & women wanting to enhance the contour and shape of the jawline. This treatment not only can restore lost volume, it adds structural support to the cheek and chin area. By adding further volume this procedure also can create a stronger jaw angle-with results creating a more youthful balanced profile.
Muscle relaxant procedures when injected into the vertical bands of the neck, can relax the dynamic muscles making them less prominent. This results in a smoother, younger looking neck appearance. This treatment simply relaxes the neck muscles.
Jaw Slimming/ Masseters
Masseter reduction or jawline slimming for cosmetic purposes is a simple and effective procedure. This procedure involves the injection of muscle relaxants into the large masseter muscles to create a slim and more balanced jawline. It is recommended for those who suffer from Bruxism, ie excessive grinding of the teeth or clenching of the jaw. The muscle relaxing injections improve the appearance of the enlarged jaw muscles, which can make a face look too square. Clients also report less sensitive teeth and improvement to their aching jaw muscles.
This procedure is a popular non-surgical option for both men & women. A receding chin is usually hereditary. With dermal fillers you can re-shape & contour the lower face to sculpt & enhance the chin. By adding further volume you can lengthen & project the chin forward which creates a more balanced profile.
Fat Dissolving Treatments
This procedure is a nonsurgical injectable treatment, which permanently destroys fat cells. A common area to treat is beneath the chin. A double chin (sub mental fullness) is caused by genetics, ageing, or excessive weight. Those who have it are often self-conscious about it & treatment will be dependent upon anatomy and assessment of fullness under the chin.
NOTE: Each individual is different. You may have ie mild, moderate or severe submental fat. Eg Those assessed with severe sub mental fat will have a larger area to treat, thus may require more treatment sessions.
Other areas may also be treated with this product. It is suitable for both female and male clients.
