Dermal fillers can be used to correct a downturn smile by adding volume and support to the areas around the mouth and lips.
Here are some potential benefits of using dermal fillers for this purpose:
1. Lifts the corners of the mouth: Dermal fillers can be strategically injected into the marionette lines, which are the lines that run from the corners of the mouth downward, causing a downturned appearance. By adding volume to this area, dermal fillers can lift the corners of the mouth, creating a more youthful and upward smile.
2. Restores facial balance: A downturn smile can make the face appear sad or tired. By using dermal fillers to correct this, you can restore facial balance and symmetry. Adding volume to the lower face can create a more harmonious appearance and make the smile look more natural and balanced.
3. Enhances lip contour: Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance the shape and contour of the lips, which can further improve the appearance of a downturn smile. By injecting fillers into the lips or around the vermilion border (the border between the lips and the surrounding skin), the lips can be plumped and shaped to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
4. Boosts self-confidence: Correcting a downturn smile can have a positive impact on a person’s self-confidence and overall well-being. When individuals feel better about their smile, they may feel more comfortable and confident in social situations, leading to improved self-esteem.
5. Non-surgical and relatively quick procedure: Dermal filler injections to correct a downturn smile are non-surgical and typically require minimal downtime. The procedure can often be completed in a short office visit, making it a convenient option for individuals looking for immediate results without the need for surgery or a lengthy recovery period.
