Droopy mouth corners are also known as inverted smile lines. Basically, you take a smile and turn it upside down. The frowning face emoji is the perfect example of that. When we frown or sulk, our jaw muscles tense up and pull the corners of our mouth downwards. This set of muscles is called the depressor anguli oris. When they are overused from the repetitive action of frowning, they can cause the corners of the mouth to droop even when the muscles are at rest.
Ageing is another cause of this condition. The loss of collagen and elastin in the skin causes it to sag, thus resulting in the drooping of the corners of the mouth. The sagging could cause one to look like they have lines running downwards from the sides of their mouth. This is also why this condition is also referred to as marionette lines. It’s named as such for its resemblance to the lines demarcating the moving parts of a puppet’s face.
This condition could cause one to look like they are feeling down, troubled, or unhappy, even when they are not. That is the reason why many with this condition choose to seek treatments for it. With the advancements in technology, there are now many choices of effective treatment available in the market. The key thing is to find an experienced doctor with a keen eye for aesthetics as they would be best able to recommend a treatment or combination of different treatments to give you the best results.
