Do you have a permanent frown? If the corners of your mouth turn downward when your face is relaxed, you may look angry or upset when you are perfectly happy. There are muscles that pull the corners of the mouth into a smile and others that pull the lips down into a frown. The downward muscles have gravity on their side and can outperform the upward mouth muscles. If you have a perma-frown, Westside Aesthetics offers Botox® injections as a corner mouth lip lift treatment at our clinic in Los Angeles.
The depressor muscles that pull down the corners of the mouth can outperform the elevator muscles. The result is a mouth that looks sad, angry or tired, and the lines at the corner of the mouth age the entire face. People with downward turned mouths are often asked, “What’s wrong?” even when they are content. Relaxing the depressor muscles can allow other muscles to pull the corners of the mouth back into a pleasant position. This can also smooth downward lines that create that permanent frown.
