Drooping Mouth Corners
Introduction to Drooping Mouth Corners / Downturnerd lips
Downturned mouth corners give a sad and old look to the face even when you are not sad. This makes the face aesthetically less pleasing.
As we age the collagen and elastin fibers of the skin reduce making the skin lax, simultaneously soft tissue volume loss along with gravity brings the cheek downwards and results in downturned mouth corners.
Another important cause of downturned lips or mouth corner is the over activity of DAO (Depressor Anguli Oris) muscle. This is a facial muscle that begins from the jawline and attaches to the corner of the mouth. Its contraction brings the corner of the mouth downwards and closer to the jawline. Overactivity of this muscle is easily correctable with anti-wrinkle injections.
