What are the Best Ways to Treat Drooping Mouth Corners?

Drooping mouth corners, medically known as oral commissure ptosis, can give an appearance of sadness or aging that many find undesirable. This common issue might be caused by factors such as loss of skin elasticity, decreased muscle tone, and volume loss due to aging. Thankfully, there are several effective treatments to lift and redefine the contours around the mouth. In this blog post, I’ll explore the best ways to treat drooping mouth corners, offering both clinical and at-home solutions to help you achieve a more youthful and vibrant smile.


  1. Topical Treatments

For those who prefer a non-invasive approach, topical treatments can provide a subtle improvement:

  • Anti-Aging Creams: Creams containing peptides, retinoids, and antioxidants can help increase collagen production, improving skin elasticity and firmness around the mouth.
  • Hydrating Serums: Products with hyaluronic acid can plump the skin, slightly lifting the corners of the mouth by improving skin hydration and texture.
  1. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are one of the most effective treatments for drooping mouth corners. Fillers made from hyaluronic acid can be injected directly into the area around the mouth corners to add volume and provide an immediate lifting effect. The results are typically natural-looking and can last between 6 to 12 months.

Dr. Rakib is a highly skilled cosmetic doctor with extensive expertise in using fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments to address a variety of aesthetic concerns, including drooping mouth corners. His in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and his precise injection techniques ensure that patients receive tailored treatments that enhance their natural features. Dr. Rakib’s approach to using hyaluronic acid fillers focuses on restoring lost volume and creating a subtle lift, resulting in a more youthful and harmonious facial appearance.

  1. Anti-wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle treatment is another excellent option for treating drooping mouth corners. By carefully injecting small amounts into the muscles that pull down the corners of the mouth (depressor anguli oris), the muscles relax, allowing the corners to lift—the results typically last about 3 to 4 months.

Additionally, Dr Rakib’s proficiency in anti-wrinkle treatments allows him to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, further enhancing the overall effect. Patients trust Dr. Rakib for his meticulous attention to detail and his commitment to achieving the best possible outcomes with a natural-looking finish.

Drooping mouth corners can be effectively treated with a combination of professional cosmetic procedures and home care practices. Whether you choose fillers, anti-wrinkle, or topical treatments, book an appointment with Dr Rakib to select the safest and most effective treatment plan tailored to your needs. With the right approach, you can restore a more youthful, uplifted appearance to your smile.
