As women and men age, facial volume is lost, upper and lower lip wrinkles develop and the corners of the mouth draw downwards.
This often creates a sad or unhappy appearance to the lip and mouth area. The formation of the "mouth frown" or marionette line can be a very ageing sign on the face. 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 and Restylane 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, ingrained folds which are very difficult to treat successfully if left for too long.
It is also important to note, that the stronger, tighter and healthier the skin tissue itself, the better and longer-lasting the injectables will be. For this reason we highly recommend treatments and products that will help to hydrate, restore, rejuvenate and tighten the skin in order to get excellent, long-lasting outcomes.
These may include:
· Laser Genesis
· RF Needling
· ND:Yag Skin Tightening
· Monopolar Radiofrequency
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 done 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.
