Signs of Ageing

Our expressions are part of who we are, but as we age our faces don’t always communicate what we want them to! The muscles of the face allow us to express a range of emotions but repetitive movements over time lead to folds and wrinkles that alter the appearance of the face. These lines, particularly in the frown area and outer corners of the eyes can cause our faces to look old, tired or angry (even when we are not!)


Wrinkle reduction treatments are aimed at smoothing away wrinkles and lines on the face and neck. This treatment, when administered at low cosmetic doses, is generally well tolerated. It allows untreated areas to maintain normal movement. Even after treatment, you'll still retain the ability to laugh, smile, and frown, with reduced wrinkling in the treated areas. These treatments are effective on wrinkles that appear with muscle movement but don't address pre-existing wrinkles; they can only soften these areas. The substance used in these treatments may also have applications in treating certain medical conditions like bruxism (teeth grinding) and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

Successful treatments are useful for:
• Frown lines (11’s),
• Smile lines (around the eyes)
• Forehead lines
• Scrunching ‘Bunny lines’ of the nose
• Chin Crinkling
• Downward pull of the mouth
• Neck wrinkles
• Teeth grinding (bruxism)
• Excessive sweating of the hands, feet, under arms and face

Crow's Feet

Crow’s feet are the fine lines and wrinkles that appear around the eyes. It is natural for crow’s feet to develop as we age and lose collagen.

Before and after
Bunny Lines

Bunny lines are known as lines along the nose that form when we ‘scrunch’ our nose up.

Before and after
Frown Lines

Frown lines appear as 2 deep furrow lines between the brows and are visible when we frown. They become more pronounced as the skin thins and ages.

Before and after

Forehead wrinkles run horizontally across the forehead and are caused by frequent muscle movement. They also become more pronounced as collagen diminishes during the ageing process.

Before and after

Teeth grinding can be painful and cause the masseter muscles to over-develop. When these muscles over-develop, they can become more pronounced. Masseters can be treated to assist with discomfort from grinding as well as aesthetics.

Before and after
Neck Wrinkles (Platysma Bands)

Part of treatment of aging of the lower face is to treat the neck. Some individuals have strong platysma bands. These are the muscles that pull the bottom of the face down and can be seen best when opening the lower mouth wide and down. A strong platysma pulls down and can contribute to the jowls and lower face and neck ageing. These muscles are often very strong in desk workers. Successful treatment to the neck muscles can create lift in the lower part of the face, and the treatment is often called the “Nefertiti lift.’

Before and after
Chin Dimples (Mentalis)

An overactive chin muscle can cause dimpling of the chin and an orange peel appearance. Successful treatment can elongate the lower part of the face and also help with puckering from acne scarring in the area.

Before and After
Downward Smile Lines (DAO)

The depressor angular oris muscle pulls down the corners of the mouth. It can lead to a sad face and the appearance of ageing. Treatment of the DAO allows an upturning of the bottom lip.
