Our last blog post on toxin has hopefully left you with an understanding of the botox eyebrow lift that is second to none. Today we will unveil some lesser known intricacies of toxin options that mean that this treatment can be used not just as a treatment for fine lines in the upper face.
We have had a few enquiries about the lip flip procedure – it is essentially tiny tiny tiny injections of toxin across the top lip used to lift out the edge of the top lip which often becomes less defined with age. It is also a treatment for smokers lines which are pretty stubborn to get rid of.
In our client group over the age of 40 lots of you point to the lower face in your consultations, the little jowly bit along the jaw, and some of you mention a “down-turned smile” or looking like you have a droopy mouth. One of the clever things we can do with toxin, which works by stopping muscles from moving, is stop the little muscles that pull the corners of the mouth downwards from doing so. As a result you won’t be able to gurn…small price to pay for lifting the corners of your mouth and softening the jowls a bit…?
Another great use of toxin is in the neck, which is one of the crucial areas that many of you complain about with ageing. Treating the neck is a crucial part of a surgical facelift and that is also true for any non surgical facelift treatment. At The Clinic we can use toxin to treat the lower face and neck to cause skin tightening and a more defined jawline. It is important to have a consultation first as not everyone is appropriate. But there are great success stories with this, it is sometimes termed the Nefertiti Lift in honour of the Egyptian queen with a famously defined jawline.
And finally for today we have the gummy smile treatment, anyone hate smiling because it shows their gums? We’ve had so many clients who hadn’t realised you could do anything about this until our recent Instagram before and after. But we can, a small injection into the muscles that pull up each side of your mouth and we’re there, you can still smile, but you’ll be showing less gum.
