If the corners of your mouth turn downwards when your face is relaxed, it can sometimes make you appear unhappy even if you are in a good mood. One solution to this problem is a corner lip lift which involves injecting dermal filler into specific areas by the corner of the mouth to make the lip edge lift to be horizontal again.
What causes a downturned lip?
Over time as a result of gravity, ageing and genetics, the corners of the mouth can pull downward, and permanent lines can appear that exaggerate the frown expression. As we age, the hyaluronic acid and facial fat breaks down which causes wrinkles to form and the skin to become more lax. This skin laxity can contribute to the corners of the mouth becoming downturned into a sad expression.
Corner Lip Lift Treatment
Despite there being a variety of skin treatments which are available to help improve the skin’s firmness, none of them provide such a quick and simple solution as dermal filler. In just a few minutes Dr Hennessy and his team can help to smooth the mouth lines and relax the muscles that pull down the corners of the mouth giving you an effective lip lift.
