The muscles that turn down the corners of the mouth are called the DAO (Depressor Anguilla Oris). When you inject anti-wrinkle into the DAO muscles, it relaxes the areas, in turn ceasing to pull your mouth downwards. You will be able to start seeing results in 3-4 days and full affects in 2 weeks time.

Treatment Overview

Over active muscles pulling the angle of the mouth down create this contradiction smile. These clients often have a downturned mouth at rest and tend to look sad.

The Lowdown

What to Expect

A bespoke treatment of anti-wrinkle medication will be administered. The procedure is safe, not painful and quick to perform. Note the treatment is temporary, relaxing the muscle for approximately 3-6 months. For optimum results continued anti-wrinkle treatments are required.

Before the Treatment

There is a detailed consultation with the cosmetic nurse or doctor to discuss treatment options based on the patient expectations. During the consultation the cosmetic nurse or doctor will assess your face, note asymmetry, and take photographs to document your cosmetic journey.

After the Treatment

Anti-wrinkle treatments are generally well tolerated. You will notice the product taking effect 2-4 days after the procedure, and full effect will be visible 2 weeks after the treatment.
The most common side effects include: local irritation or redness and mild to moderate swelling. Although rare, bruising can occur. If it does remember it is temporary and can be covered with make up 24 hours after the treatment.
