Erasing signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines on the face is not all that Botox can do. Botox can also do wonders by helping to correct droopy or downturned smiles. People with downturned smile while resting can give a sad or frowny appearance, and look perpetually unhappy. The triangular depressor angular oris with the base along the border of the jaw is the muscle responsible for pulling the corners of the mouth down.
Smile surgeries could help in lifting the corners of the mouth to avoid the angry look. But like every other cosmetic surgery, this can be a long, painful procedure and can have severe side effects. A much simpler and less painful alternative to get the smile corrected is by opting for Botox. Botox is considerably more cost-effective than surgical option too. Though it is not a permanent solution to correcting smiles, when it is done by a board-certified cosmetologist, it is quite safe with no downtime. To keep seeing results, you’ll need to get additional Botox treatments every few months.

During the procedure to correct downturned smile, Botox aids by weakening the depressor Anguli oris muscle to permit the elevator muscle to lift the corner sides of the mouth. This muscle works in pulling down the edges of the lips as well as it is the muscle that is responsible for producing jowls on the features of face. Selective and precise administration of Botox can result in a relaxation of these muscles and a slight upturn of the commissure, giving a more ‘happier’ appearance. The procedure is normally combined with dermal fillers to accentuate the natural curve of the lateral lower lip upwards.

Apart from correcting smiles Botox injections can also help sort out Radial lip lines that extend vertically from the lips, lines around the oral commissure that widen from the corners of the mouth down toward the chin or marionette lines, nasolabial lines that comes from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth or parenthesis lines, it can work on the particular muscle that pull the edges of the mouth into a persistent frown and on thinning and ageing lips
