Descrição

Description:
The facial muscles are a group of striated muscles innervated by the facial nerve that, among other things, control facial expression.

The facial muscles are subcutaneous (just under the skin) muscles that control facial expression. They generally originate on bone, and insert on the skin of the face.

The facial muscles are innervated by facial nerve (cranial nerve VII). In contrast, the nearby masticatory muscles are innervated by the mandibular nerve, a branch of the trigeminal nerve (V).

The facial muscles include: Occipitofrontalis, Temporoparietalis muscle, Procerus, Nasalis muscle, Depressor septi nasi,
Orbicularis oculi, Corrugator supercilii, Depressor supercilii, Auricular muscles (anterior, superior, posterior), Orbicularis oris, Depressor anguli oris, Risorius, Zygomaticus major, Zygomaticus minor, Levator labii superioris, Levator labii superioris alaeque nasi, Depressor labii inferioris, Levator anguli oris, Buccinator, Mentalis
