Lifting the corners of the lips with botulinum toxin (Botox).
The corners of the lips have undergone significant changes over the years. At an early age, they are directed upwards, in the 20s and 30s they level up and finally turn downwards, creating an expression of sadness. In most cases, this decline is due to loss of support in middle facial floor and underlying tissues. Restoring these lost volumes secondarily leads to lifting the corners of the lips and leveling them.
In some cases, the pronounced puppet lines and the decrease in the corners of the lips are not due to loss of support from the underlying tissues, but to increased activity of m. depressor anguli oris. This muscle pulls the corners of the lips down when contracted, for example when expressing sadness. Through the application of botulinum toxin can relax, as a result of which it occurs lifting the corners of the lips and smoothing puppet lines.
For a longer and more satisfying effect, it is recommended to combine with hyaluronic filler.
