A growing trend in aesthetic medicine is for a combination therapy approach to rejuvenation and correction, and botox and fillers are one such winning combination.
There have been a couple of recent studies that suggest that neutralising key facial muscles with Botox can reduce the symptoms of depression.
Bunny lines are wrinkles that appear on the bridge of the nose. The lines often become more prominent when smiling and can convey a false appearance of distaste.
Bunny lines are also called nasal sidewall “scrunch lines”.
The “bunny lines” are worsened by contraction of the transverse part of the Nasalis muscle.
The chin can develop an excessively dimpled, pebbly or orange peel (peau d’orange) look.
The orange peel (peau d’orange) appearance of the chin gets worse whenever the Mentalis muscle (chin muscle) contracts.
Marionette lines are grooves or furrows that run from the corners of the mouth downwards towards the jawline.
Often the corners of the mouth are turned downwards as well, leading to a sad, dissatisfied or scornful look.
Forehead lines or wrinkles run from side to side on the forehead. Forehead lines can involve the whole forehead or be worse in certain parts of the forehead.
Often the lateral (outside) part of the forehead is involved in isolation. During ageing the brow starts to sag. The forehead then tries to compensate for the saggy brow by contracting to hold the brow up. This contraction of the forehead muscle causes wrinkles on the sides of the forehead.
Frown lines are excessive vertical and/or horizontal lines or wrinkles between the eyebrows. Sometimes these lines area present even when not frowning, leading to an angry or scowling look.
Smokers lines or lipstick lines are fine wrinkles and lines on the upper and or lower lip that radiates out from the red lip border.
These lines are more prevalent on the upper lips.
The condition known as “gummy smile,” when a person’s smile reveals far more of the gums than is considered attractive.
A lot of things may cause the condition: small teeth, too much gum tissue, and a thin upper lip can each be a cause. In all cases of gummy smile, genes are at fault.
Crows feet are the fan shaped lines and wrinkles that radiate out from the outside corner of the eye.
Crows feet are worsened when smiling, laughing or squinting.
