Have you ever noticed that your mouth turns down? Instead of your lips being in a neutral position or even lifted up, some patients have significant downward turn of their mouth. This makes them look angry or upset when they are not (hence, the slang term “RBF”). You don’t have to settle for this inherent look. There are two great solutions that can dramatically improve this.
The first solution is adding some dermal filler like Restylane or Juvederm to the corners of the mouth to lift the skin and soft tissue. This before and after picture shows a dramatic improvement in the contours of the corners of her mouth with some filler. She looks more pleasant and approachable. Filler placed in the corners of the mouth are an instant improvement with long-lasting results of about a year. In addition, filler also boosts collagen so your skin gets a healthy pick-me-up. Don’t worry that you will look filled. You will look natural and “more pleasant” after filler in this area. A recent patient exclaims “I was so tired of people at work asking me what is the matter. I asked my friend why people think that and she told me that I always have a mad look on my face around my mouth. That was it. I decided to treat this area at Charmed Medispa with some filler. Wow. No regrets getting filler. It looks great as well as natural and the comments that people used to make have stopped. I should have done this sooner.”
There is another treatment with Botox that improves the downturn of the mouth. When you use Botox (or Dysport) into the muscles that pull the mouth down, you get lifting of the corners of the mouth. Some patients chronically smile down or unconsciously move their mouth down all day long. Putting Botox into the muscle area that is pulling down relaxes the strong muscle and the corners of the mouth can go up. Botox is safe and effective for relaxing muscles that can be hyperactive. Botox is also given far more for medical reasons than cosmetic Botox. Our Delaware med spa does Botox treatments all day, every day. We are lucky to have a provider that has the most experience in Delaware in aesthetics. Loraine has also trained other health care providers for 14 years in the fine art of doing injections.
Sometimes filler and Botox are combined to improve the downward turn of the mouth. It really depends on the case.
