Youthful appearance of the upper face
Little to none

The upper face can be affected by a series of wrinkles – forehead lines, glabella lines and crow’s feet – that are caused by weakening skin and repeated facial movement. Young skin will see these wrinkles appear and disappear as facial expressions are used, but when the complexion gets older these wrinkles can become permanent.
The Facebible can address these concerns in one combination treatment whereby anti-wrinkle injections are applied to each set of wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin is the product that is used in anti-wrinkle injections. During this particular procedure, a series of tiny injections are administered precisely into the muscles in the forehead (frontalis), between the eyebrows (corrugator and procerus) and around the eyes (orbicularis oculi). The contractions of these muscles will start to soften as the toxin is absorbed, to lessen their movement. This in turn will prevent the skin and underlying tissues from creasing, and the wrinkle will cease to exist.
Anti-wrinkle injections can produce natural looking results that softens facial movement, whilst still allowing the face to make expressions and show emotion. The reduction in the noticeable appearance of upper-face wrinkles can rejuvenate the face and create a younger-looking profile. It is often the case that by treating the upper face (particularly the eye area) it can contribute to an overall refreshed look.
Avoiding touching or rubbing the face is advised aftercare for this treatment. You will also benefit from staying out of the sun, and being mindful of exposure to extreme temperatures – hot and cold.
At The Facebible this treatment is often recommended to men and women who are affected by the visible signs of ageing on the upper face. Permanent lines on the forehead can often be accompanied by wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows as a person gets older. This unique procedure can address each of these concerns simultaneously rather than individually, for a more youthful and refreshed look.
Botulinum toxin is a widely recognised product (often referred to as BOTOX). Its reputation for producing a safe and effective outcome has increased over the years, which is supported through the expertise of experienced injectors. The toxin is an FDA approved product that has many medical, cosmetic and aesthetic uses.
The application of a topical numbing cream, prior to the treatment, will help to ease any potential sensitivity that an injection may cause. Most patients will describe this treatment as being easy and comfortable to undergo.
Anti-wrinkle injections can cause temporary side effects, including: redness, swelling and minor bruising. In some cases a patient may also experience a headache, twitching and numbness. Your practitioner will assure you that these effects will usually only last for around 24 – 48 hours. Other, more rare complications will be discussed at the consultations.
As this particular treatment addresses more than one concern, it is likely that a longer treatment time will be necessary. The results from botulinum toxin injections will often only require a single session, with regular maintenance sessions performed every 3 or 4 months.
