Frontalis – (1) forms horizontal forehead lines, caused when raising the eyebrows.

Glabella – consists of two primary muscles, the Corrugator Supercilli (3) which draws middle of eyebrows together to form vertical lines in the Glabella and the Procerus (2) which draws the middle of eyebrows downward to form horizontal line across top of nose at bottom of Glabella.

Crows Feet – (Lateral Canthal Lines) form on the outer edge of the eyes often seen with smiling or squinting.  These are caused by the contraction of the Obicularis Occuli (6).

Bunny Lines – form along the bridge of the nose from the contraction of the Nasalis (7) muscles.

Nasolabial Folds – also known as “Smile lines” or “parentheses” are skin folds that form from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth.

Smoker’s Lines – or “vertical lip lines” form around the mouth, vertically away from the lips. These are caused by contacting the Obicularis Oris (12) during pucker movements such as kissing, sipping from a straw, whistling or for many simply during talking.

Marionette lines – skin folds that form from the corners of the mouth down to the chin.
