Botox Corner Mouth Lip Lift
Gravity and lost elasticity in the skin and facial tissues can create a permanent frown. The corners of the mouth can droop, and a downward crease can be etched in the skin, making you look mad or sad when your face is resting. If you want a happier, more youthful mouth and lips, Botox injections may be the solution. Avance Plastic Surgery Institute offers Botox corner mouth lip lift treatment at our clinic in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
There are two factors to a resting, frowning mouth. The anguli oris muscle can be hyperactive, contracting to pull the corners of the mouth downward. This can be due to age or genetic factors. Secondly, years of downward pulling on the corners of the mouth can create a dynamic crease or line in the skin. Relaxing the anguli oris muscle can allow the corner to “lift” by stopping the hyperactivity or contractions, resulting in a smoothing of the beginning of marionette lines. In many cases, this can be accomplished with Botox injections, a non-surgical, quick solution to the resting-frown face.
Non-Surgical Corner Lip Lift
There are surgical lip lifts that can permanently elevate the lip corners, but it is not always necessary in the early stages. Botox injections can target the anguli oris muscle to allow it to relax and spring the corners upward for a more pleasant resting face and mouth. The procedure consists of a short office visit, and the results are usually noticeable within a week, lasting 3-4 months. If you are tired of people asking, “What’s wrong?” due to a perma-frown, reclaim your happier, youthful mouth with Botox treatment.
Botox injections are the solution for a wide variety of facial aging and cosmetic issues. If you want to explore receiving a non-invasive corner lip lift with Botox, contact us at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute to schedule your consultation or treatment to fix your upside-down smile.
