Answer

The muscle from the corner of the mouth down to the jaw is called the depressor anguli oris (DAO). The action of this muscle is to pull the corners of the mouth down, causing a ‘sad’ face. When injected with any-wrinkle injections, often, only requiring 2 units each side, it relaxes the muscle back up, resulting in a ‘happy’ face. 
 
This area can also also be treated with dermal filler. Sometimes, the corners of the mouth still turn down, have creases and folds in them because of retaining ligaments and fat pads sagging on this area. Dermal filler allows us to turn the corners of the mouth back up, add support and structure to the area, as well as minimising the visual appearance of folds and creases. 
 
Depending on the individual, you may only need anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, or both. Best to come in for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced practitioners for options and pricing.
