Botox for Drooping Mouth Corners in Birmingham
MULTI AWARD WINNING LUXURY AESTHETIC CLINIC
Rediscover Your Natural Smile:
Drooping mouth corners can often give the impression of looking sad, even when you're not.
These concerns stem from strong depressor anguli oris muscles, causing the corners of the mouth to turn downward. Fortunately, by gently relaxing these muscles with Botox, a natural lift can be achieved, restoring a brighter and more confident smile.
Understanding the Ageing Process:
Ageing is an inevitable part of life, and it may involve the development of fine lines and wrinkles over time.
The timing and extent of these changes depend on a blend of genetics and lifestyle choices. What many people may not realise is that there are distinct subcategories of lines and wrinkles, each with its own unique causes and solutions. Dynamic lines, which result from repetitive muscle movements, are especially prominent on our faces when we engage in specific facial expressions. These are the lines that we address with our anti-wrinkle injections.
The Science Behind Botox:
Botulinum toxin type A, commonly known as Botox, is a purified neurotoxin extracted from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
It operates by intercepting muscle impulses, effectively reducing their activity. At Secret Aesthetics, we use only clinical-grade cosmetic Botox, a prescription-only medication meticulously extracted, purified, and diluted from its original paralytic form. Once administered, Botox temporarily weakens the muscle’s contractions, resulting in the softening and relaxation of lines and wrinkles caused by the underlying muscle. This process unveils a significantly smoother and more youthful appearance.
While there is currently no known method for reversing Botox, the body naturally breaks down the toxin over several months, allowing muscle movement to gradually return. The fundamental concept is to reduce muscle movement in hyperactive areas, giving the skin time to recover and rejuvenate. This, in turn, softens and fades creases and wrinkles.
Tailored Treatment to Revive Your Smile:
The versatility of Botox lies in its adaptability to your unique preferences.
Depending on your desires, our experts can customise the dose and treatment plan to achieve a naturally softened appearance of expressions and lines or a complete refinement of skin texture. During the initial years of treatment, more frequent sessions may be necessary to “re-educate” the muscles.
We strongly recommend initiating Botox treatments before dynamic lines evolve into deep static lines—those that remain visible even without any expression. The ideal starting point for this preventive approach varies from person to person, influenced by genetics and lifestyle choices such as smoking and sun exposure. In essence, the earlier you address these lines, the more manageable and less invasive the correction process will be.
Botox can also be employed proactively to prevent wrinkles and fine lines from becoming deeply etched into your skin, particularly advantageous for those with a genetic predisposition.
The Botox Procedure for Mouth:
Your journey to reviving your smile starts with an in-depth consultation at Secret Aesthetics.
During this session, our doctor conducts a facial analysis and evaluates your medical history while considering your personal expectations.
The actual treatment involves the precise administration of controlled Botox doses, administered intramuscularly using a microneedle. While the procedure is generally not painful, you may experience a stinging discomfort. The duration of the procedure varies depending on the number of areas treated but typically lasts just 5 minutes.
Potential Side Effects of Botox:
Following the procedure, you may experience common side effects such as tenderness and redness in the treated area, which can persist for up to 72 hours.
Some individuals may notice a headache, typically resolving within 48 hours. Although bruising at injection points is typically minimal, its severity can vary among individuals. To minimise this risk, we perform a thorough medical evaluation and recommend limiting alcohol intake for 48 hours before and after the procedure to aid in recovery.
Other treatable areas with Botox include:
Other Treatable Areas
Frown Lines – Lines in between our eyebrows. As the name suggests, they become apparent when frowning. Also known as the 11 lines or glabellar lines
Crows Feet – Lines that develop around the outer corner of our eyes, often become visible when we smile
Eye bag Wrinkles – Creases seen underneath and around our eyes more medial than crows feet. This treatment is often complimented with our 3-in-1 Eye Rejuvenation or with Crows Feet treatment
Cobblestone Chin – Ever noticed a bumpy uneven texture to your chin when you’re lifting your lips? Try pursing your lips together or pouting. If you notice dimpling of the skin that is bothering you, Botox can be injected to smooth the skin texture out
Bunny Lines – Wrinkles seen on the sides of the nose, often when smiling or scrunching your tightly.
Gummy Smile – The effects of a strong levator labii muscles, causing gums to show when smiling.
Eyebrow Lift – In some people, a lift can be created on the ends of the eyebrows by injecting Botox in specific areas of the forehead and outer eye.
