As we age, many areas of our skin can begin to sag. One of these areas include the corners of the mouth, which can become downturned with age. This can cause us to look upset or angry, even when we are not. Thankfully, a downturned mouth can be treated using anti-wrinkle injections starting from $99.

About downturned mouth treatment

Skin sagging and drooping is one of the most common effects of ageing. So many areas of our face can be effected by reduced elasticity and collagen and volume loss in the skin. One of the areas that can sag is the corners of the mouth, which can become downturned as we age. This can cause us to look angry, sour or unfriendly.

The effects of a mouth that has become downturned can be made worse by overusing the muscles that are used to pull the mouth downwards, the DAO (depressor anguli oris). This causes a downward pull at the corners of the lips.

The appearance of a drooping mouth can be reduced and improved using muscle relaxants. After a quick one-on-one consultation at one of our M1 Med Beauty Australia clinics, your M1 Doctor will inject some anti-aging product into the DAO. This will work to actively relax the muscle, preventing contraction and causing the mouth become less downturned.

After treatment, results can take up to two weeks to become fully visible. Results from this treatment can last up to 4 months. After the effects have faded, the treatment can be repeated to maintain results.

Tackling the signs of skin ageing with anti-wrinkle treatments is easy and effective. For an overall facial rejuvenation you can combine treat other areas such as frown lines, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.

Do all practitioners have the same qualification?

The effects of cosmetic procedures are not permanent and very safe. However, these treatments can pose quite a few risks, especially when carried out by an unqualified injector.

Unfortunately, Australia does not regulate treatments which are considered to be non-invasive. As a result, they can be performed by any practitioner, regardless of qualification level or experience.

M1 Med Beauty wants all of our patients to feel safe and happy at our clinics. That is why all of our injectable procedures are administered by a member of our team of M1 Cosmetic doctors. Each of our doctors are highly experienced specialists and are AHPRA-registered. They are highly-qualified and look forward to helping you achieve your beauty goals.

Downturned Mouth Post-Treatment Care

It is quite common to experience some minor side effects such as swelling, redness or bruising around the area that has been injected. This should fade in a few days.

On the day of treatment with muscle relaxants, it is important to avoid alcohol, makeup and touching the treated area. It is also important to keep your head upright for at least four hours.

We recommend that you read through our treatment guidelines before your appointment. You can find our guidelines here.

DOWNTURNED MOUTH - Frequently Asked Questions

As we age, areas of the face can droop and sag as we lose elasticity. One of these areas include the corners of the mouth, which can become downturned and make us appear unfriendly, annoyed or upset. This can also be made worse when we overuse the area that pulls down the mouth corners, which is called the DAO muscle.

When the corners of our mouth becomes downturned, we can easily reduce the effects with anti-wrinkle injections. The treatment works by injecting a small amount of relaxants into the DAO, preventing it from contracting and reducing the effect.

Our procedures typically only cause minor discomfort. We use extremely fine needles and blunt cannulas to administer any treatment which help reduce any pain. Many of our products contain a local anaesthetic. We also have numbing cream which can be applied.

Mouth corners can be treated at any of our M1 Australia locations including Melbourne, BrisbaneSydney, Gold Coast & Perth.

We perform a number of non-surgical treatments including anti-aging and filler injections. Some of our most popular treatments include lip filler, jawline filler treatment, chin filler, cheek filler and fine lines such as smile lines, marionette lines, frown lines, and forehead lines.
