There are a number of factors that may contribute to a down turned mouth, which is when the corners of the mouth droop, arching the sides of the mouth downwards and causing a sad, grumpy expression. The muscles responsible are the depressor anguli oris muscles beneath the corners of the lips that allow us to frown. Overactive DAO muscles can cause a down turned mouth by constantly pulling down both sides of the mouth.
Therefore, anti-wrinkle injections are ideal to treat these symptoms as the muscles can be temporarily relaxed, limiting movement while still allowing for necessary facial expression and movement.
