This incredibly detailed anatomical model shows the complexity and structure of facial muscles in a format no other skull offers. The model is life sized, and has no external hardware, allowing for an uninterrupted study of the muscular and external structure of the skull. Its removable calvarium is attached using magnets and small pegs, allowing for easy removal and secure replacement.
Great for students and practictioners of facial injections, whether for therapeutic or aesthetic injection applications, this skull includes many facial muscles, including the the major muscles where facial injections are performed:
- Orbicularis Oculi
- Zygomaticus Minor
- Zygomaticus Major
- Depressor Anguli Oris
- Depressor Labii Inferioris
- Orbicularis Oris
The skull has a realistic bone texture and color with clear sutures, allowing for clear identification of the individual bones of the skull. All foramen and fossa are present. The articular disc of the temporomandibular joint is displayed, carefully cradling the mandibular condyle and allowing for the smooth articulation of the jaw. The permanent teeth are displayed, as well as an impacted wisdom tooth. Even the texture of the palatine bones is clearly visible, making this a truly deluxe skull model.
The true highlight of the skull is the 37 featured life-like muscular pieces that represent the facial structure just below the skin, which include the muscles for facial expression and chewing. The skull comes with 36 removable parts.

Purchased as a home study-aid while going through pre-med. Really a helpful tool to have on hand. The level of detail is pretty incredible.
This model was purchased for our breakroom at our day spa. It is a good tool to keep our therapists familiar with the make up of a human's face and the muscles that it consists of. The only concern I have is that the pegs while being unobtrusive seem like they may break and I also am concerened with the small pieces and hope they don't get lost. Only time will tell.
