Wrinkles of the forehead muscle (1)

To reduce the upward movement of the forehead muscle (frontalis muscle), a Botulinum-A neuromodulator (Botox®, Bocouture®) can be injected. As a result, the activity of this muscle decreases so that fewer wrinkles appear on the skin of the forehead. Any deep wrinkles that have become visible in this area can be repaired with a hyaluronic acid filler.

Frown wrinkles and headache (2,3,4)

The frown is made of five small muscles. These pull down the skin in a joint motion, resulting in an angry or focused expression, often with deep wrinkling effects. When these muscles are treated with a neuromodulator botulinum A the tensile strength reduces thereby reducing the pull on your skin. Certain types of headache can be combated and migraines can be reduced. Any deep wrinkles that have become visible in this area can be repaired with a hyaluronic acid filler.

Sunken temples (5)

The temples of the face will transform from a slightly convex shape during puberty to a hollowed-out shape later in life. Both bone density, fatty tissue and muscular tissue over time reduces, resulting in sunken temples. Often your temples may be concealed by long hair so it does not stand out too much, but in the end it is still visible. This area can be restored using fillers. Volume will be returned and it re-creates the slightly convex shape. You will be amazed by the rejuvenating results.

Sagging Eyebrows (6)

One of the first signs of aging is the lowering of the eyebrows. As a result, the eyes appear to be smaller and deeper. Furthermore, there are wrinkles on the forehead and "crow's feet" become more apparent. These problems are not only present when aging. A low position of the eyebrow (or bags thereof) is sometimes heritable.

Due to loss of bone density and eye socket-structure along with a change in the balance between the eye socket-pinching and eye socket-relaxing muscles, a sagging skin at the location of the eyebrows often results.

The imbalance between the orbital muscles can be restored by softening the muscles that pull the eyebrow down with neuromodulator Botulinum-A. This puts the upwards pulling muscles in favor and the eyebrow will be lifted slightly. Drooping eyebrows unfortunately give you an older and sadder / angrier appearance. High, slightly arched eyebrows on the other hand give you a younger and fresher appearance.
