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.

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. Only expert injectors like those on our team can really treat this well, as it requires a specific treatment into a particular muscle group. The results just make you look.. and feel happier!
We use a range of injectable relaxants and pride ourselves on achieving fresh, vital, real results with our highly qualified nurses.
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.
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.
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.
