Our mouths can start to pull down at the corners as we age. Anti-wrinkle injections stop the DAO muscle pulling down the corners of the mouth (downturned mouth) to be slightly lifted.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A local anaesthetic is first applied to the injection sites on your face. Once you are ready, small quantities of the Anti-wrinkle treatment (Downturned mouth toxin) are injected into the DAO Muscle either side of your lips.
Anti wrinkle is suitable for most people; however, this treatment should be avoided by anyone with muscle problems or nerve damage, or anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding.

As we age, our mouths can start to pull down at the corners. Here at Eden Medical Clinic we can treat the DAO muscle (that is forming the downturned mouth) with anti-wrinkle injections to give the lips an uplifted, happier look. Our aesthetic doctors inject small quantities of the anti-wrinkle treatment into the DAO to relax the muscles either side of the lip.
The anti-wrinkle treatment should last around 3-4 months. The substances contained in the injections are broken down and absorbed by the body and so additional treatments will be necessary to maintain this look. A plan for regular follow-up treatments will be put together for you.
The common side effects that occur with thread-lifting and anti-wrinkle injections are generally connected with the injections sites and usually resolve themselves within two days. They include:
- Temporary skin dimpling
These generally resolve within 2 – 7 days.
Massage the face for two weeks
Avoid direct sunlight and tanning machines
Avoid alcohol and aspirin, ibuprofen and Advil for seven days before and after treatment
Avoid blood thinning vitamins A,C and E for seven days
Avoid physical exercise for seven days
Avoid heat treatments on the treated areas for 10 weeks
Avoid temperature extremes
