Mona Lisa Smile Injection?

Recently heard about a procedure called the Mona Lisa Smile Injection. What is it and who would be a candidate for the procedure?

The idea behind the "Mona Lisa Smile Injection" is to raise the corners of the mouth from a frown into a more youthful, buoyant, smiling position. As we age, losing volume at the corners of the mouth causes the lips to curl downwards on each side. This gives a melancholy and aged appearance. 

The Mona Lisa Smile Injection is performed by using fillers such as Juvederm or Radiesse, depending on your needs. The procedure usually takes just 15 minutes and is performed in the office.

This is an advertising technique to get you into the door and part you from your money. This is an unethical advertising since there is NO WAY any body could make the claim to give you the Monalisa smile.

Only Michaelangelo did that on canvas.

Mona Lisa gets a lot of play.  But what this is really is a procedure to fill the corners of the mouth to change the corner so that it gets a little lift.
