procerus

[prəsir′əs]
Etymology: L, stretched
one of three muscles of the nose. It is a small pyramidal muscle that arises from the fascia of the nasal bone and the lateral nasal cartilage and inserts into the skin over the lower part of the forehead between the eyebrows. It is innervated by buccal branches of the facial nerve. The procerus functions to draw down the eyebrows and wrinkle the nose. Compare depressor septi, nasalis.

There are two muscles responsible for glabellar wrinkles: the procerus muscle contracts down toward the medial edge of the muscle and causes horizontal lines in the glabella, while the corrugator superciliaris muscle pulls down and in toward the medial end of the muscle, thus creating vertical lines in the area.

The muscles in the forehead, such as the procerus and corrugator supercilli, often respond well to a few units of the medically prepared toxins, administered by shallow injection, and the 'relaxation' of such muscles can reduce the recipients ability to frown; thereby often giving a 'smoothing effect' to the area over its duration of action.
Usually procerus and corrugator muscles also require injection along with orbicularis muscle.
