Forehead Lines

Excessive frontalis muscle movement can result in expressive lines across forehead. This is not a privilege to older group of people, but can also affect younger age group. Reducing excessive frontalis muscle movement, can even slow and delay the presence of static lines across the forehead.


  • Botulinum Toxin Injection

    Botulinum Toxin Injection

    Our expression lines are resulted from facial expressive muscle contraction stimulated by our neurotransmitter Acetylcholine (Ach). Botulinum toxin (BTx) is purified protein which can effectively reduce the excessive muscle contraction via competing with Acetlycholine for the receptive binding sites on muscle plates and hence reduce our expression lines. Furthermore, we can also delay the formation of static lines on face at later age through reducing excessive facial muscle contraction.

    The certified available botulinum toxins in HK are BOTOX from USA, Dysport from UK and Xeomin from Germany. However, those with neuromuscular diseases, pregnant or lactating mother are not advised for botulinum toxin injection. It is important to seek medical advice before deciding on the treatment. It will start effect about 3 - 7 days after injection, and the result can last about 4 - 6 months, variation subjected to individual patients.

    Botulinum toxin has been widely used clinically nowadays mainly at the following:

    Face: Reduce expression lines, namely frown lines, crows feet, forehead lines, bunny lines and etc.

    Calf sculpture: Reduce the muscle bulk of gastrocnemius, it can help reshaping the contour of calf muscle..

    Square face: This is resulted from the muscle bulk of masseter muscle (main chewing muscle of face), botulinum toxin can reduce the muscle bulk and hence reshape the facial contouring.

  • Dermal Filler

    Dermal Filler

    Dermal tissue filler has been widely used in aesthetic medicine, Hyaluronic acid is considered as most commonly used material, it is a naturally occurring polysaccharides distributing throughout dermis, epithelial and neural tissue to provide support of dermal structure and hydration to skin. However, the production of Hyaluronic acid will gradually decline with age, hormonal changed and excessive sun exposure. Skin then begins to lose its fullness and elasticity and result the presence of dehydrated and sunken texture , static lines and wrinkles.

    Replenishing deprived hyaluronic acid via injecting directly into dermal layers help rehydrating the skin and restoring weakened dermal support, and hence improvement of deep grooves and lines and improve the overall facial contouring. Common areas of treatment include tear-trough deformity, sunken and sagging mid-cheek, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sunken temple areas, as well to enhance nasal bridge, chin and lip. Normally exogenous hyaluronic acid can last 6 – 9 months but duration does vary individually. They will be gradually dissolved and eventually excreted. Possible post injection phenomenon include transient swelling, redness and bruise, normally it will subside within 1 week. However, it is not recommended for pregnant, epileptic patients, drug allergy to anesthetic, and those on blood thinning medications such as warfarin and aspirin.

  • Ellanse Dermal Filler Collagen Booster

    Ellanse Dermal Filler Collagen Booster

    As a dermal tissue filler, Ellanse is a new breakthrough as the mixture of hyaluronic acid, radiesse and collagen booster. It is unique for its specificity to be able to fill and lift (eg nose, chin, nasolabial folds and tear trough deformity), and at the same time to induce collagen synthesis. Therefore, its effect can be more stable and durable, normally it can last for more than one year.

    This new member of dermal filler is formed by combing two materials PCL and CMC to produce a good anti-aging effect. Both ingredients are approved by US FDA as safe for clinical usage.

  • Poly-L-lactic acid/PLLA

    Poly-L-lactic acid/PLLA

    The elasticity of skin is mostly contributed by healthy collagen and elastin fibers present in the dermal layer, these important elements will gradually reduce in quantity and quality with aging process, and resulted in wrinkles, grooves, hollowness and sagginess. Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) is one kind of fillers and also known as collagen booster. The new collagen was produced when PLLA was broken down into carbon dioxide and water. The newly formed healthy collagen will replace the quantity lost of original collagen, and support the falling down dermal layer, and hence it can achieve wrinkle reduction, cheek augmentation and facial contouring effect (Total Facial Rejuvenation). Commonly treated areas include facial contouring, cheek augmentation, tear trough deformity, sunken temple area, nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

  • Thermage CPT

    Thermage CPT

    Physiological aging process resulted in gradual losing of dermal collagen and connective tissue, leading to wrinkle formation and skin sagginess. Thermage CPT is a safe, FDA approved, non-invasive, mono-polar radiofrequency (RF) procedure that is clinically proven to help smooth and improve skin for an overall younger looking appearance. The treatment delivers electric current which penetrates down the skin and converts into heat energy to initiate dermal collagen remodeling and hence induction of new healthy collagen production, and at the same time, the heat energy can also tighten fine fibrous septum intersecting in dermal layer and result strengthen the anchoring effect. However, those are pregnant, had mental implants, wearing pacemaker or other implanted electronic devices are not suitable for Thermage treatment.

    Clinically proven effective treatment area:

    Peri-orbital area: Sagging upper and lower eyelid area, reduce peri-orbital fine lines, improve drooping eyelid and eyebrow.

    Face: Treating lower face aging signs such as sagging jowl area, improve deepening nasolabial folds.

    Body: Loosening skin under arm, abdomen (after losing weight or post-delivery), wrinkling skin around thighs, buttocks or above knee area.

    Thermage can be used to treat skin colour of any type, however the treatment result may be subjected to individual response, lifestyle, age and condition at presentation, and the duration of result may be varied as well.

    Time required for Thermage treatment varies according to treatment areas, numbing cream will be applied for an hour on treatment area. There will be heat feeling during treatment and the skin will be protected from the heat by cryo-cooling of the machine.
