Mouth Corner Lifting
As we age our mouth might lose its form and get downturned. This causes the face to look unpleasant or express a sad feeling. People who have sagging and droopy mouth corners and those whose mouth corners do not rise while smiling are best candidates for this treatment. The corners of the mouth will be slightly raised as a result of treatment, giving the mouth a more relaxed, cheerful, young, and attractive appearance.
Lip frowning is made possible by muscles that run at an angle from each corner of the mouth to the jawline. Some patients unconsciously misuse the depressor anguli oris “DAO” which are the muscles used to draw down the mouth corners. Botox® permits other muscles to raise the corners of the mouth and minimize the frowning appearance by relaxing them.
By injecting a few units of Botox into the muscles that pull the mouth corners down, the corners of the mouth can be lifted in 1 to 2 weeks. The treatment is painless and fast, with little downtime, and the effects endure for 2 to 5 months.
How often should I get my DAO treatment?
In order to maintain the desired results patients will have to return for a follow up treatment after their DAO mobility has returned to between 50% and 80%, which might take anywhere from 3 to 4 months.
