Here’s a Botox treatment that you may not be aware of. The injection of Botox into the chin area will allow the corners of the mouth to turn up, giving a more relaxed look to the lower part of the face.
As we age, the activity of a muscle called the depressor anguli oris acts to turn the corners of the mouth down. This results in an unhappy look on the face. A small amount of Botox can be used to relax this muscle and, as a result, allow the corners of the mouth to turn back up. This results in a more relaxed and attractive look.
Next time you are having a Botox treatment, ask your doctor if this treatment will improve your result!
