    Did you know that you can improve the appearance of your forehead, temples and brows using cosmetic injectables like dermal filler and muscle slimming injections.

    Treating the upper face with injectables takes 10-20 minutes, has no downtime, and gives immediate results (dermal filler) or within 6 weeks (muscle slimming injections).

    If you’re noticing hollow temples, forehead shadows, or developing deep wrinkles and sagging eye brows, then this may be the treatment for you.

    What does upper face contouring do?

    Depending on the issue at hand, upper face contouring can improve facial proportions, soften shadows, fill hollow temples and forehead dents, reduce wrinkles, and rejuvenate your appearance.

    We use dermal fillers to improve shape and structure, and botulinum toxin to relax muscles along your forehead and brows.

    The result? An improved, refreshed appearance, with softer lines, lifted brows, and a more attractive upper face contour.

    Some of the common goals of upper face contouring are:

    • Improve hollow temples
    • Reduce forehead shadows
    • Lift your eyebrows and upper eyelids
    • Sculpts a convex forehead contour

    Benefits of upper face contouring

    Enhancing your upper face with non-surgical cosmetic treatments is one of the most under-rated parts of cosmetic medicine. Treating your upper face is technically challenging, and is only done by the most experienced cosmetic doctors. This is why it’s not widely available.

    Facial contouring that targets your upper face aims to both rejuvenate signs of ageing and enhance the shape and appearance of your forehead, brows and temples.

    Upper face contouring is such a popular treatment because of the benefits.

    • Immediate, fully reversible results where dermal fillers are used.
    • Quick, easy and no downtime procedure done under local anaesthetic.
    • Precise results, that can be fully tailored to your preferences.
