Best Injectable Fillers for Frown Lines in the Corners of the Mouth
Nobody wants to have a permanent frown on their face. But unfortunately that’s what can happen when the effects of aging cause the corners of your mouth to downturn. This creates a frown that can make it seem as if you’re mad, sad or disgusted. But don’t despair. If the corners of your mouth turn down or droop, dermal fillers can be used to uplift the mouth and restore your smile back to a lovely position.
What Causes A Downturned Mouth?
The “mouth frown” is most frequently caused by aging which brings about a loss of volume and elasticity in the skin at the corners of the mouth.
The wrinkles that make up a drooping mouth are usually static and are visible even when there is no facial motion. Most of the time, they become more noticeable with facial expressions.
In addition to mouth wrinkles, vertical lip lines, nasolabial folds, fine lines and marionette lines also appear on the lower region of the face. Dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm® can help with these aging skin issues as well.

How Does Dermal Filler Correct Frown Lines in The Corners of the Mouth
Dermal fillers placed near the corner of the mouth can be used to create an upturn in the corners and replace volume lost in this area. Dermal fillers are non-permanent and many use a biocompatible gel made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural component found within our skin.
So what are the best injectable fillers for corners of the mouth frown? There are several options.
The FDA-approved Restylane® family of hyaluronic fillers offers a number of specific fillers such as Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne to combat moderate and severe wrinkles in the lower portion of the face. These state-of-the-art injectables can correct many facial wrinkles and other issues including vertical lip lines, mouth frown, marionette lines, nasolabial folds and more.
Restylane Refyne and Defyne are specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that are often used to correct smile (marionette) lines for a more natural and youthful looking face.
The main difference between the two is that Restylane Refyne treats mild to moderate lines and wrinkles, while Restylane Defyne is used to treat moderate to severe smile lines. Both fillers can last up to 12 months.
As our skin loses elasticity with age, some facial lines become more noticeable. The lines that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) become deeper. The lines that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) can also become too defined. Refyne and Defyne are also great for these areas because they are more flexible and suited for areas of the face with more movement.
What Are Dermal Fillers Made From and How Do They Work
Dermal fillers are safe injectables that work to plump up, smoothen, and fill out any lost volume under the skin. These gel-like substances help reduce the signs of wrinkles, lip lines, and chin creases. They are also quite popular these days as lip fillers. In fact, dermal fillers have gone from a procedure done by celebrities and influencers to popular aesthetic procedures for your everyday men and women. Studies estimate that over one million dermal filler procedures happen yearly.
Esthetic providers use a wide range of FDA-approved facial filler products to treat frown lines at the corner of the mouth and other issues. To ensure safety, always seek an FDA-approved, brand-name injectable filler.
Restylane® and Juvederm® Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Filler
Hyaluronic acid, which is found in Juvederm® and Restylane® is a naturally produced substance found in the skin. It aids in keeping skin soft and hydrated and is usually gel-like in texture. Its effects are long lasting, from six months up to one year. Today most HA fillers contain lidocaine, which helps to reduce pain during and after treatment.
Sculptra® Aesthetic Filler - Poly-L-lactic Acid
Poly-L-lactic acid fillers like Sculptra are classified as "collagen stimulators.” They smooth fine lines and boost natural collagen-a process that is not instantaneous but happens over a few month period. Sculptra typically lasts one year.
Radiesse® Filler - Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)
Calcium hydroxylapatite filler like Radiesse® has a denser consistency than a hyaluronic acid filler and typically lasts longer, about one year for most clients. It is typically used for a deep wrinkle; also confirmed to help enhance natural collagen production.
Which Filler Would Suit The Client’s Needs?
The amount of filler required to lift a downturned mouth and the depth of the folds are the two key factors that affect the right option of dermal filler. Some folds run from the drooping corners of the mouth down to the side of the chin.
With several dermal fillers available on the market, it can be hard to ascertain which option is best without the assistance of a skilled provider. Since every filler is distinctively formulated to have a specific texture, density, and injection depth, certain fillers work better for particular problem areas.
The greater the depth of the folds and the more required mouth lift, the higher filler lifting capacity is necessary. Each filler has distinct properties, such as lifting capacity. The injectables with the highest lifting capacity are Voluma and Restylane.
