Downturned Mouth

As women and men age, volume is lost, upper and lower lip wrinkles develop and the corners of the mouth draw down.

This often creates a sad or unhappy appearance to the lip area, the "mouth frown" or marionette line, a very ageing sign. In some patients a chronic irritation due to salivary overflow (a condition known as angular cheilitis), can develop.

At Skin Renewal we can treat this ageing sign by injecting a dermal filler such as Juvederm, Surgiderm, Restylane, Emervel or Perlane into the small triangle of skin just below the corner of the mouth. In this manner a drooping mouth corner can be turned up quickly and easily. The key to a good corner of the mouth lift is very dependent on the expertise of the injector.

At Skin Renewal, the rejuvenation of the downturned mouth with dermal fillers and other injectables is performed daily with great success. The sooner this procedure is performed the better the final result will be. If these wrinkles at the corner of the mouth are neglected, they become deep folds with scar like wrinkles which are very difficult to treat successfully.

Skin Renewal Tip

A downturned mouth with ingrained wrinkles is very often due to overactive depressor muscles of the mouth or a habit or tic that the patient has developed over time which causes constant creasing of the mouth corner. Small injections are into the mouth depressors and the downward pulling action is negated and the mouth takes on a smiling appearance. The correct placement of this treatment injection is very dependent on the experience of the injector. Make sure that the practitioner you choose for this procedure has done numerous procedures.

Review -The answer to all my prayers!
Reviewed on 26 May 2015 by Maryann Gama

To all at Skin Renewal, Dr Marilyn and Dr Debbie,

I am so pleased that you have brought in the threads into your treatment menu, they are the answer to all my prayers as they have delivered immediate conclusive results to a mini- facelift without all traumas associated with surgery. It is definitely a worthwhile procedure and has made me feel much more confident about the way I look. The folds from my nose that surrounded my month area have magically disappeared, and it is ideal as it looks so natural – really turning back the clock, looking like a younger version of me, so no one suspects. People think I have just had a damn good holiday……..just what I wanted them to think.
