Frowning Lips


Reducing the appearance of frowning lips

A frown is a unique facial expression that involves the action of many muscles used to convey a negative emotion across cultures and language barriers. A frown is supposed to be a temporary emotion but sometimes the corners of your mouth can droop down, causing you to frown even when relaxed. Fortunately, there are ways to help lift the corners of the mouth and bring back your happy face.

Contrary to popular belief, frowning lips is not caused by excessive frowning or being angry all the time. Frowning lips usually are a result of age, and when we age we tend to lose volume in our cheeks and elasticity in our skin. This means that the skin around our mouth loses the support it once had, and the outside corners of our lips turn down resulting in frowning lips.


How we can reduce the appearance and formation of frowning lips

If you have noticed that your lips have started to turn down and cause you to frown or look sad, we can help restore your beautiful smile and get you looking and feeling like yourself again.

Neuromodulators can be used to relax the muscles and help lift and smooth the skin and dermal fillers can be used to fill in deeper lines and creases reducing the severity of the downturned corners of the mouth.


Treatments for frowning lips

During your consultation, we will evaluate the cause of the downturned corners of the mouth and whether neuromodulation and/or dermal fillers are necessary. This will help determine the number of neuromodulators units needed to achieve your desired smile.

An appropriate amount of neuromodulators will be injected into the muscle downward pulling the corners of lips, and dermal filler may be used to fill any deep lines and creases.


Neuromodulators are nerve blocking agents that temporarily relax the muscle they are injected into, resulting in minimized or complete prevention of muscle contraction.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers work by boosting your skin’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid (HA). While there are many types of dermal fillers, they all work to build natural-looking volume in a controlled manner.
