Corners of The Mouth

One of the best treatments to correct wrinkles at the corners of the mouth involves the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable material made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our body. The function of hyaluronic acid naturally in the body is to maintain the skin’s volume and hydration. It is appropriate, therefore, that fillers made from such materials are the products used to plump up, or fill in hollows and creases in the skin in areas which lose fat or internal shape with normal ageing.

Corners of The Mouth Treatment.

Lines around the corners of the mouth appear as we age, and these often cause us to appear sad, or look older than we are. Using dermal fillers at the corners of the mouth to correct lines and wrinkles, help to make this area of the face look less careworn and appear younger.

  • How are dermal fillers administered to treat lines at the corners of the mouth?

    After assessment by one of our qualified practitioners, dermal fillers are administered by way of small injections through a fine needle around the mouth area, then massaged into the skin to encourage even coverage and instantly plumping up the lines.

    The doctor has control over the volume of filler used, using just the right amount to create a natural – looking effect.

  • Is this process of treatment of lines at the corners of the mouth painful?

    Some of the fillers used at the Clinic have inbuilt Lidocaine, an anaesthetic, to help numb the area treated so as to cause minimum discomfort.

    Others do not, and so a topical anaesthetic is applied, which has the same effect. The process is comparatively quick, and the furrows and lines are immediately softened, instantly rejuvenating the area.

  • How long does the effect of treatment for the corners of the mouth last, and are there any side effects?

    Dependent on the type of filler used, between 6-12 months. Once the injections have been administered, the area may be a little swollen for a short time.

    Side effects are rare, as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in humans, and over time, will be broken down and eliminated naturally through the body.

  • Who will perform the dermal fillers for the corners of the mouth treatment?

    As with all Dermal Fillers treatments, Corners of the Mouth treatment for men and women is performed by one of our qualified practitioners and supervised by Doctor Maria Gonzalez.
