While a few facial lines can be endearing and add character to your face, many of us would rather avoid them if we can, and there are many techniques a Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurse can use to help keep you looking refreshed and rejuvenated.
The most common facial aesthetic concerns and how wrinkle reduction treatments can help are detailed below.
The most significant cause of Crow’s Feet is a loss of elasticity in the skin combined with early wrinkles caused by smiling and squinting. Over time, your skin’s elasticity decreases, and normal facial expressions result in heavier wrinkles around the eyes.
A Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurse can inject wrinkle reduction medication in this area to smooth and soften the lines around the eyes.
Forehead Lines (horizontal lines)
Forehead wrinkles are caused by the action of the frontalis muscle on the forehead. This muscle contracts when we raise our eyebrows. The raising of the frontalis muscle pulls the skin of the forehead up and causes forehead wrinkles which appear as lines across our forehead.
Forehead lines, also known as forehead wrinkles or ‘surprise lines,’ become more apparent as we age. Excessive lines on your forehead can give the face and skin an aged appearance.
If you’re starting to see traces in your late 20s or early 30s, it is best to consider exploring preventative treatment options. The more you wait to address your forehead wrinkles, the more difficult it will be to achieve the best possible results.
Frowning Lines (vertical lines)
Frowning is a facial expression that conveys the negative expression of anger, even when one is not angry. Frowning is produced by two main muscles, the corrugator supercilii and the procerus muscles. First, the corrugator supercilii muscle runs along the length of the eyebrows and draws the brows together. It creases the skin between the brows to create one or two vertical lines that may become ingrained should frowning be frequent or intense enough. Secondly, the procerus muscle runs vertically between the brows and on contraction causes bunching of the skin and a horizontal line across the bridge of the nose, which again can become etched in if the use of the muscle is over-utilised.
Wrinkle reduction injections can relax the muscles that cause frowning and help reduce the intensity and severity of this expression.
Top of the nose (diagonal lines)
Lines on each side of your nose are often referred to as ‘Bunny lines’. This is because they are the creases that appear when the nose wrinkles up, for example, when we sniff or smell something.
The careful placement of anti-wrinkle injections at either side of the nose can reduce the appearance of these lines.
These lines can be a natural part of growing older, and some people find them charming. However, others may feel that bunny lines age their face and are self-conscious about it. If you fall into the latter category, your Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurse can help you get rid of your bunny lines.
In younger faces, the brow is well supported, and its position above the eye remains high. However, the effects of ageing can cause the brow to drop, giving the eyelid a ‘hooded’ appearance. This can create horizontal folds in the surrounding skin.
Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurses are trained in techniques that sculpt and lift the eyebrows, putting them back in a youthful position. This procedure involves placing injections in a careful combination of areas on the upper face to open up the eye and lift droopy lids.
Lines Around the Mouth (smokers lines)
The fine lines around the mouth or ‘smokers lines’ become more apparent with age is another ageing concern. We use muscles in this area when we smile and for other facial expressions.
Cosmetic Nurses can use these injections to help turn the corners of the mouth up and improve your smile.
A combination of wrinkle reduction and dermal fillers to this area can smooth the wrinkles, creating a refined surface to the skin with minimal risk.
Chin (to prevent dimpling)
As we get older, the muscles in the chin, known as the mentalis muscles, become overactive meaning they flex more often than they should, creating a dimpled, puckered appearance.
Wrinkle medications can relax these muscles, thereby smoothing and reducing the overall dimpled look of the chin.
