Case Study – Smile correction anti-wrinkle treatment
By anti-aging Cosmetic Nurse Practitioner Jessica Maggs
Facial muscles play a significant role in portraying how we mimic and present.
The smile muscles consist of six key muscles which influence the many types of smiles that we see every day. For some of these people there are pronounced asymmetries which create an unwanted appearance and in many cases these can be treated very simply and effectively with anti-wrinkle injections in very small doses which are repeated periodically to maintain the symmetry.
This example demonstrates the zygomaticus major smile muscle pulling upwards more so on the clients left side. A very small dose of anti-wrinkle injection treatment was able to correct this side by relaxing this muscle to balance the strength of the opposite side. This can be seen in the after photo taken one month later. In this example the treatment lasted about four months.
