The mouth frown refers to the downturn in the corners of the mouth that can occur as we age, this can often lead to a ‘sad’ look. Loss of elasticity in the skin and repeated use of the perioral muscles contribute to this issue. Dermal Fillers placed near the corners of the mouth can be used to create an upturn in the corners, and can be used to replace volume lost in this area. Small amounts of wrinkle relaxants can also be placed into the lower lip depressors to prevent their downward action.
Accordion lines are the lines on either side of the lower half of the face, caused by repeated muscle action when you smile. They increase as you age due to loss of elasticity in the skin. Dermal fillers can be placed here to soften these lines.
