Jaw Slimming / Frown Lines / Crow Feet / Brow Lift
Dermal Contouring Facelift
Achieve non-surgical facial rejuvenation through the precise application of Botox. This aesthetic dermal treatment helps to lift, re-contour the face, and rebalance the effects of sagging and ageing skin. Dermal Lift not only creates a tighter, firmer and more lifted face, it also imparts a smooth, seemingly poreless, whole-day “powdered” look that lasts up to 6 months.
Injectable smoothers work by relaxing targeted muscles under the skin, which in turn smooths out wrinkles like crows feet and forehead lines.
This is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time. It works by blocking nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract, reducing muscle activity. When muscle contraction is lessened, the appearance of forehead wrinkles is reduced.
It can also be injected into the jaw, where there is an enlarged muscle called the masseter muscle. This weakens the muscle and eventually makes it smaller, giving a face a slimmer look. As a non-invasive procedure, this is virtually painless compared to traditional jaw reduction surgeries. This makes it a preferred option for attaining a more defined jawline.
How does it works?
The Dermal Lift treatment is a series of Botulinum toxin injections administered along the jawline area up to just beyond the temple area, to target mid-face lifting and rejuvenation. It works by blocking the nerve transmission to muscle cells, thus relaxing the facial muscles. As a result, those muscle fibres contract much less and no longer create “dynamic lines” in the treated area. Results will typically be noticeable within a few days and will usually last 3 to 4 months.
This can be used for a variety of facial rejuvenation techniques, including elevating the brow by treating the brow depressor muscles. This gives the eyes a more open, lifted look (which is why it is also known as a brow lift).
Targeted areas exclude the muscles responsible for facial expressions. Instead, this treatment works on the fine muscles that control pore size and the platysma muscles of the jawline to counteract any sagging effects due to loss of firmness.
Ideal Candidates for Dermal Lift
- Individuals who are beginning to notice gaunt, sunken features and suffering from loss of tissue volume, which in turn leads to wrinkles, lines and folds are ideal candidates for dermal contouring lift.
- Women in their 40s who are just starting to see the signs of ageing, but who are not yet candidates for a surgical facelift.
- People who have had a facelift in the past, but do not look as youthful as they could because the facelift did not address age-related volume loss.
