Everyone looks grumpy or crabby from time to time, depending on their mood or circumstances. But for some people, their facial features always look angry or irritated, even when they are actually in a good mood. Some people refer to this perpetually moody expression as “Resting Bitch Face,” or “RBF.” If you have RBF, you might find that people treat you differently because you look unapproachable or aloof.
Luckily, Dr. Ary Krau can soften your RBF and give you a more pleasant and approachable expression to better reflect how you feel on the inside. Furthermore, he can often complete the treatment during a single office appointment that does not require surgery, incisions or anesthesia! Read on to learn how.
Creating a More Pleasant Expression With Botox and Fillers
Dr. Krau can use a combination of injectable Botox and filler products to address the areas of your face that look unapproachable or angry. The key is knowing which features to refine, and which to preserve for the most natural-looking result. Dr. Krau will perform a comprehensive analysis of your facial features, bone structure and skin quality before mapping out a plan of treatment.
Your treatment will be tailored to your unique needs, and could include any of the following elements:
Smoothing out marionette lines: Dermal filler injections can fill in and minimize the appearance of marionette lines, which are the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. This can help to give the lower face a more neutral and relaxed expression.
Plumping up pursed lips: Fillers can also be used to plump up thin lips that appear pursed or grim. Adding volume to the lips is especially helpful if the corners of the mouth turn down in a scowl.
Minimizing forehead creases: Botox injections are perfect for minimizing forehead creases and wrinkles that give the face a scowling appearance. Botox can also soften furrows between the eyebrows, also known as the “11 lines,” for a more neutral facial expression.
Elevating low brows: Botox is also effective at giving low or furrowed eyebrows a subtle lift, which opens up the eyes and brightens the facial expression.
