THE PERFECT SOLUTION
Some individuals naturally have a smile that points downwards from the corners. Which unfortunately can have an impact in the way you are viewed, with our anti-wrinkle treatment we can prevent the muscle underneath your mouth from pulling your mouth down!
If the corners of your mouth naturally point down, you have a downward smile.
A chemical is used to inject below your lower lip. Once this chemical has taken it’s effect on your muscles, it temporarily blocks signals from your nervous system which normally would tell your muscles to move.
The serum will relax the muscles will pull the corners of your mouth down, resulting in a lifted smile!
After you’ve had your treatment, you may notice some stinging or slight bruising where the needle was injected. These effects are temporary and will subside.
Anti-wrinkle injections can take several days to take effect, don’t worry if nothing happens in the few days after your treatment. This is normal.
