Anti-Wrinkle Solutions – Down Turned Mouth

There are a number of factors that may contribute to a down turned mouth, which is when the corners of the mouth droop, arching the sides of the mouth downwards and causing a sad, grumpy expression. The muscles responsible are the depressor anguli oris muscles beneath the corners of the lips that allow us to frown. Overactive DAO muscles can cause a down turned mouth by constantly pulling down both sides of the mouth.

Therefore, anti-wrinkle solutions are ideal to treat these symptoms as the muscles can be temporarily relaxed, limiting movement while still allowing for necessary facial expression and movement, with a check up after two weeks and a complementary top up if the practitioner feels it is necessary.

Frequently asked questions

Both the size and strength of your DAO muscles will play a part in the overall cost of your treatment at North West Aesthetics as this will affect the amount of treatment required. A definitive price will be determined and discussed with you during your free consultation.

Over the first 14 days following your treatment, you will start to notice your muscles relax as the corners of your mouth begin to lift, resulting in a softer, youthful appearance. This is a temporary treatment, so it is only natural that the results should begin to wear off after a period of 3 months post-treatment, after which repeat treatments are required to maintain your results.

This is one of our most popular, non-surgical aesthetic treatments due to its' simplicity, effectiveness and fast results turnaround. The treatment is only 5 minutes.

Another benefit of this type of treatment is that it requires absolutely no downtime or recovery afterwards, allowing our patients to return to their daily routine instantly.

Anti-wrinkle solutions commonly trigger bruising, redness and slight swelling post-treatment, which is perfectly natural as the treatment heals. There is no cause for concern, but if you are at all worried, please don't hesitate to get in touch as our friendly, approachable team are always happy to help you.

If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above, anti-wrinkle solutions may be the answer you've been looking for. However, overactive DAO muscles aren't the only factors that contribute to a down turned mouth. For example, if ageing is the primary cause, the concern is with the structure of the skin and other treatment options might be better suited.

At North West Aesthetics, our friendly and attentive team prioritise your wants and needs, offering bespoke treatment plans that work specifically for you. We take the time to get to the bottom of your concerns via a thorough consultation, before then considering the best possible course of action.

“I was very anxious after having Botox treatments at other places in the past. I was recommended to use Dr David Taylor at North West Aesthetics, and so far I am amazed! David is great and very understanding of my needs. The results are just as I wanted, I will be using David for all my treatments in future!”

“I was nervous about trying fillers but Dr David put me at ease right away. The whole team are so friendly and welcoming. Before my treatment David went through a pre treatment medical assessment, which made me feel safe and secure as I have seen some horror stories before! I had Botox and Lip Fillers and I love them. I get so many compliments on how natural looking my lips are and how my complexion is glowing – for the first time in my life people are saying “you have such amazing clear skin!”…”
