Sorry to hear about your situation. In my opinion, you should wait at least 10 to 12 days after your treatment to be certain of the final result. Botox can migrate causing unwanted effects to the surrounding muscles. In my experience, DAO injections have been very beneficial. Please return to see your injector so that he/she may more accurately evaluate you. Best of luck.

Sorry to hear about your experience with Botox. Small doses of Botox can be injected in the depressor anguli oris muscle (DAO) to improve downturned corners of the mouth. However, this is an advanced injection technique and requires an experienced injector who understands the relevant anatomy. Over injection into this muscle can result in an unnatural appearance, a "joker's smile". Also, if the Botox is misplaced, it could affect the depressor labii inferioris muscle and result in an asymmetric smile. When this does occur, unfortunately, the best option is just to wait the 3-4 months for the Botox to wear off.
