Drooping corners of the mouth

Do you suffer from drooping corners of the mouth? As we age, the corners of the mouth can start to droop. This can be due to increased muscle tension around the mouth. Botox causes the muscles to relax again and subtly elevator the corners of the mouth. This gives a rejuvenating effect!

Drooping corners of the mouth can give a sullen and gloomy facial expression. The facial muscles that normally pull the corners of the mouth down can be overactive and tightened. This happens more often as we age. Over time, the mouth will form accordingly and the corners of the mouth will be permanently pulled down. This can be very distracting because it ages the face considerably.

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a muscle relaxant that causes the muscles around the mouth to temporarily contract less. Because the muscles no longer contract properly, the corners of the mouth are no longer pulled down as hard. As a result, the corners of the mouth are lifted in a subtle and natural way.

When should I start with botox?

The ideal time to start botox is when the corners of the mouth begin to droop visibly and permanently. In fact, from this moment on, the corners of the mouth will only start drooping further. The botox not only elevators the corners of the mouth, but also prevents the corners from drooping further.

How long does the result last?

Botox remains effective for 3 to 4 months on average. At JECT Clinics we offer both Azzalure and Alluzience botox, with effective duration times up to 6 months. At the end of the effective duration period, the treated muscles will gradually start to move again. When the effect has diminished, the treatment can be repeated. Repetition of treatment is important to maintain the best possible results.
