Anti-wrinkle injections For Lifting the lateral corners of the mouth
The DAO treatment, also known as Depressor Anguli Oris treatment, is a specialised procedure offered at The Skin Works to address the downturned corners of the mouth.
By targeting the depressor muscles that pull the corners of the mouth downward, the treatment helps to lift and rejuvenate the appearance of the mouth area. It can effectively improve the look of a sad or downturned mouth, creating a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
During the DAO treatment, Dr. Sarah Davies will strategically administer anti-wrinkle injections into the depressor muscles around the corners of the mouth. These injections work by relaxing the muscles responsible for pulling the corners of the mouth downward, allowing the opposing muscles to exert a lifting effect. This results in an upward rotation of the corners of the mouth, giving a more positive and youthful appearance.
The procedure is quick and minimally invasive, usually taking just a few minutes to complete. Dr. Sarah Davies will use a fine needle to administer the injections with precision, targeting the specific muscles involved in the downward pull. The treatment is generally well-tolerated, and any discomfort experienced is minimal.
The results of the DAO treatment become noticeable gradually within a few days to a week after the procedure. You can expect to see an improvement in the downturned corners of your mouth, with a more lifted and balanced appearance. The effects typically last for several weeks to a few months, after which additional treatments may be required to maintain the desired results.
There is typically no downtime associated with the DAO treatment. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some individuals may experience mild redness or swelling at the injection sites, but these effects are temporary and generally resolve quickly.
Discomfort during the DAO treatment is minimal. The injections are performed using a fine needle, and Dr. Sarah Davies may apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the treatment. Most individuals tolerate the procedure well with minimal pain.
It's important to have a consultation with Dr. Sarah Davies to discuss your specific concerns and determine if the DAO treatment is suitable for you. During the consultation, she will evaluate your facial anatomy, discuss your goals, and provide personalised recommendations based on your unique needs.
