Improve the appearance of mouth wrinkles with the leading cosmetic injectables

About Cosmetic Injectables

The skin around the mouth area creases so as to accommodate recurrent muscle movements. Over time, our skin loses its elasticity and mouth wrinkles become more prominent.

At VL Aesthetics, we can reduce your mouth wrinkles with the leading cosmetic injectables (well-known brands include Botox® and TEOSYAL️® – which type of injectable is used depends on your suitability for that injectable).

If you would like to improve the appearance of mouth wrinkles or any other facial feature, please book a Free Consultation with our expert injector who will talk you through what is involved.

Dr Abs at VL Aesthetics in Carlisle (Cumbria)

Dr. Abs (MChD) (BChD)

Principle Injector

Initially graduating in dentistry, Dr. Abs has practised and studied aesthetics under some of the world’s most renowned cosmetic doctors. He brings his wealth of experience not only to VL Aesthetics but to other doctors, dentists, and nurses across the world through lecturing Cosmetic Medicine internationally. Dr. Abs is known for his skilful technique and honest approach. At your Free Consultation, he will advise you about what treatment is right for you, and will make sure that you are suitable. For example, perhaps Botox® is appropriate, or perhaps a different treatment (such as an advanced medi-facial) will meet your aims and objectives better.


How Cosmetic Injectables Work

There are many different types of cosmetic injectables, and many different brands that use these injectables. For example, Botox® is a trademarked name for a treatment that uses botulinum toxin, and TEOSYAL️® is a trademarked name for a treatment that uses hyaluronic acid. At VL Aesthetics, we only use the top brands for our cosmetic injections.

To activate muscles, motor neurons release a neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) into the neuromuscular junction. Botulinum toxin inhibits this release – it breaks down the communication between the motor neurons and the muscle cells. This has the effect of relaxing the muscles, and when applied to specific facial areas, will improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body. It is a sugar-based compound that acts as a powerful humectant - it can carry up to 1000 times its weight in water, giving skin a young and supple appearance. As you get older, your body makes less hyaluronic acid, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. By filling in your fine lines and wrinkles with hyaluronic acid, we can restore a youthful look.

Cosmetic injections are very safe if administered correctly by a medical professional – Dr. Abs practises and teaches aesthetics internationally and is highly qualified to carry out the injections.

However, although the treatments are very safe, they may not be suitable for people with certain medical conditions or for pregnant / breastfeeding women.

We carry out a full medical assessment before starting your treatment, so if you are not a suitable candidate, we will find out before your treatment begins.

The injections themselves are relatively painless. However, the most common side effects are tenderness and mild bruising around the injected areas.

Should you have any concerns after your treatment, Dr. Abs will be happy to conduct a telephone consultation with you.

The most common minor side effects are tenderness and mild bruising around the injected areas.

Very rarely some patients may experience headaches, drooping eyelids, or muscle weakness. These reactions usually disappear after 72 hours.

In general, it takes 7-10 days for the treatment to take full effect.

Treatments that use botulinum toxin (e.g. Botox®) usually last 3-6 months, while treatments that use hyaluronic acid (e.g. Juvederm®) usually last 6-9 months.

How long the results last for depends on the number of previous treatments, the treatment areas, and your individual characteristics.

Botulinum toxin (e.g. Botox®) and hyaluronic acid (e.g. Juvederm®) can treat many different facial areas. Which type of injectable is used depends on which facial feature you would like to enhance and on your suitability for that injectable. At your Free Consultation we will determine which treatment best suits your aims, objectives, and personal characteristics.

Cosmetic Injectables Treatment Areas at VL Aesthetics

There is no specific age at which you should start the treatments – All people age differently and feel differently about how they look. In general, we find that people start the treatments for the following reasons:

20s – To prevent wrinkles and fine lines from occurring.
30s – To prolong the youthful look as wrinkles and fine lines start to appear.
40s – To tackle wrinkles and fine lines before they are deeply imprinted.
50+ – To improve the appearance of deeper wrinkles and fine lines.

Before your treatment begins, our expert injector will discuss your aims and objectives, explain the various therapeutic options, and will determine if you are a suitable candidate.

If cosmetic injectables are right for you, then Dr. Abs will begin by cleansing your face and marking out the treatment areas.

A fine needle is used to deliver the chosen solution directly into the target areas, avoiding facial veins to prevent bruising.

Depending on which areas are being treated, the session can last between 30-60 minutes. The treatment is done on a walk-in walk-out basis with no time required for recovery.

In the first 24 hours post-procedure, please try to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Clean your face with a gentle cleanser and warm water.
  • Try not to wear makeup.
  • Use creams with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to reduce irritation and hydrate the skin.
  • Avoid active skincare products which contain: Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids, Retinol (Vitamin A), and Vitamin C (in low pH formula). Continue to do so for 3 days post treatment.
  • Do not drink excessive alcohol.
  • Don’t go swimming or to saunas.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise.
  • Avoid direct sunlight. If you absolutely must be outside, be cautious and wear a shaded hat.
  • Try to avoid lying face down.
  • Don’t take Ibuprofen and continue not to for two weeks after the treatment.
