People who are not comfortable with their lower face, will smile rarely or of they do they do it in an uncomfortable or covered manner. When a smile is forced or not comfortable, this often gives the impression of being unfriendly or mean or false, which can have repercussions in our professional and personal life. A bright smile is associated with intelligence, friendliness, comfort, extroversion and attractiveness.

The smile is more than just teeth. The smile involves the way our lips lock, the way our chin projects, the way the skin appears around the mouth. A smile involves the whole face but is truly supported by the structures of the lower face. It is often said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, but the smile is the door.

In youth, generally everything is full, plump, balanced, symmetrical and strong. There are opportunities to help correct balance and symmetry in youthful patients and in our older patients we can help restore, rebuild and re-energize the way the lower face is portrayed. As we age, the structures of the lower face start changing due to a range of activities:

  • The bones start to resorb and reduce over time
  • The teeth change in colour and size
  • The gums start to reduce in size
  • The muscles around the mouth become stronger
  • The muscles of chewing become bigger and bulkier
  • Fat pads move and either become bigger or smaller, and
  • The skin itself becomes thinner and our lips start reducing in size and shape.

With all of these changes taking place we become more and more concerned about how our smile looks, or how our lower face reflects how we feel on the inside. Suddenly we don’t look like the person we think we are.

Enhance Your Look

The following areas can be addressed by Muscle Relaxant Antiwrinkle Treatments:

While a strong, square jawline can be distinctly masculine and desirable in male patients, many female patients are seeking softer more feminized shape to their face.

Those annoying little lines that lie perpendicular to your smile in your cheek hollows are generally static wrinkles that are present when smiling or when not.

The pronounced creases that run from the corners of the mouth to down along the chin. It can also refer to nasolbial folds occurring around the top of the mouth.

Lip Treatment People of all ages seek improvement to the appearance to their lips. Whether extra fullness is desired or the effects of ageing have caused wrinkling and thinning of the lips.

The two skin folds that normally run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. These lines can appear at any age and contribute to an aged appearance.

Having a continuous jaw line represents strength, balance, harmony and youthfulness, projecting the image they feel on the inside.

Muscle Relaxants

Gummy Smile TreatmentSome patients have smoker’s lines around their mouths – and they don’t even smoke! These are caused by the continued contraction of the muscles around the mouth. By using muscle relaxants carefully in this area, these lines can be softened. Muscle relaxants can also be used to soften a mouth frown – where the corners of the mouth are being pulled down by muscles, creating a sad looking mouth.

Showing too much gum or a gummy smile is another area that is easily managed with muscle relaxants, as is smoothing a ‘golfball or popply’ chin! Teeth grinding can also be a problem for some, causing tightness and pain in the jaw and lips result in a square shaped face. This can be helped by relaxing the muscles.
