Drooping Corners of Mouth

Drooping Corners of Mouth

Do you find yourself constantly looking upset or grumpy, even when you’re in a perfectly good mood? If so, you may be experiencing the effects of drooping corners of the mouth, a common age-related concern that can affect your overall facial expression. Thankfully, Botox, an approved treatment for various cosmetic and medical conditions, can come to your rescue.

As we discussed in our previous blogs, Botox works by relaxing the underlying muscles responsible for creating wrinkles and lines. For example, we’ve covered how Botox can reduce forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and even alleviate conditions like hyperhidrosis and Bell’s Palsy. But did you know that the same mechanism can be used to help lift the drooping corners of your mouth?

Understanding Drooping Corners of the Mouth

As we age, our facial muscles lose tone, and the fat in our faces begins to thin out and sag, pulling the corners of our mouth downwards. The result is an appearance that can often look sad or severe, even when you’re not feeling that way. In fact, many people are surprised to find out how much this single feature can change the overall impression they make on others.

Botox as a Solution

When Botox is injected into the muscles that pull down the corners of the mouth, it relaxes them, allowing the opposing muscles (which lift the mouth corners) to pull upwards without resistance. This effect can result in a friendlier, more approachable look.

In some cases, we may combine this treatment with dermal fillers for enhanced results, helping to restore lost volume and give your mouth a more naturally youthful shape. We’ve previously discussed the importance of proper training for injectors performing these treatments to ensure the best results.

” I invite you for a no-obligation consultation to discuss YOUR concerns and goals. We will also talk about various treatment options and how they can improve your condition, boost your confidence and sense of well-being.” 

The Procedure and Results

Administering Botox for drooping mouth corners is a quick procedure, usually taking around 10-15 minutes with minimal discomfort. Effects begin to show within a week and typically last up to four months.

Botox, as we’ve covered in our blog on how long Botox lasts, doesn’t provide a permanent solution but does offer an excellent temporary fix that can easily be maintained with regular treatments.


It’s important to remember that everyone’s face and circumstances are unique, so consultation with an experienced practitioner is essential. If you’re tired of looking grumpy or sad due to drooping mouth corners, you may find Botox to be an excellent solution. After all, you should be the one in control of your facial expressions, not the other way around.

Remember, Botox isn’t just for wrinkles; it can also help with conditions like migraines, sleep bruxism, and even scalp sweating. Feel free to explore our other articles to learn more about the versatility of this treatment.

As always, we’re here to help. If you have any questions or if you’re ready to book a consultation, don’t hesitate to contact us.

I have been seeing Anna for quite a few years for various facial procedures and the transformation from when we first met to now is incredible! This is all thanks to the amazingly talented Anna, who is a true professional, providing honest advice and guidance to get the best, natural looking results. I trust Anna implicitly and this, along with Anna’s wonderful team, is the reason I wouldn’t go anywhere else for help to age gracefully 😉 Thank you all for doing such an amazing job!

Went to Anna to get my skin ready for my wedding. I have had wonderful hydro facials, skin pen with Erica who has helped reduce pigmentation from scaring on my skin. My skin feels so smooth and looks amazing without make up. I also had a tear trough treatment with Anna. She promised me I wouldn't feel any to very little pain, and she was right. It was comfortable, and the end result looks natural. Everyone at Anna Medical Aesthetics are understanding, approachable and honest. I feel these are such great qualities to have that I will be returning for more facials and any future treatments. Thank you ladies
