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. Muscle relaxants allow the muscles to relax again and subtly elevator the corners of the mouth. This produces 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 makes the face age considerably.

Botulinum toxin is a muscle relaxant that causes the muscles around the mouth to temporarily relax. 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 to start muscle relaxants?

The ideal time to start using muscle relaxants is when the corners of the mouth begin to droop visibly and permanently. In fact, from this point on, the corners of the mouth will only continue to droop. The muscle relaxants then not only elevator the corners of the mouth, but prevent the corners from drooping even further.

How long does the result last?

On average, muscle relaxants remain effective for 3 to 4 months. At JECT Clinics we also offer Alluzience in addition to the regular muscle relaxants, which can be longer effective up to 6 months. After that time, the treated muscles will gradually start working more and more. Once the muscle relaxants have worn off, the treatment can be repeated. Repetition of treatment is important to maintain the best possible results.
