Downturned mouth corners are caused by overactivity of the depressor anguli oris (DAO) muscle. This muscle attaches to the mouth corners and pulls them down. It often gets stronger with age.
Downturned mouth corners can leave you looking tired, angry and unhappy, and are a common sign of ageing.
We use downturned mouth injections to lift your mouth corners. The treatment uses the muscle relaxing property of anti-wrinkle injections to relax the DAO (depressor anguli oris) muscles.
Relaxing the DAO muscle then leads to a lifting effect of your mouth corners.
The ideal candidate for downturned mouth injections is someone with sagging mouth corners, with an heavier looking smile.
The DAO (depressor anguli oris) muscle is located at the front of your jawline and attaches to your mouth corners. Its pulls your mouth corners down when speaking and making certain facial expressions.
With age, the DAO muscles become hyperactive, causing your mouth corners to constantly pull down. This gives you an angry or unhappy expression.
Downturned mouth injections are an effective treatment option to relax the DAO muscles and lift your mouth corners.
The DAO (depressor anguli oris) muscle causes a downturned mouth by pulling down on the mouth corners.

DAO injections for a downturned mouth with Cosmetic Connection
With advancing age, the depressor anguli oris (DAO) muscle (highlighted red in the image) of the lower lip starts to become overactive. This pulls on the mouth corner, dragging it down. The result is that you are often mistaken for looking sad or angry, and your smile may also start to look aged.
Downturned mouth injections effectively target the DAO muscle to relax it. This reduces the downward pull it applies to the mouth corners. This gives a lifting effect, so that your face looks more friendly, less saggy, and your smile more attractive.
The injections use the muscle relaxing property of anti-wrinkle injections to temporarily weaken the DAO muscle. The effect takes 1-2 weeks to kick in, and generally lasts 3-4 months.
