We always associate “sad” and “angry” as emotions that are stereotypically applied to older people. Well, the truth is that old people don’t actually exhibit negative emotions than any other segments of the population. Old people look angry perpetually because of wrinkles that are present on the face.
Commonly known as “The Resting Bitch Face” in today’s context, it describes a person who appears upset or sad even when they are feeling perfectly fine. It is a common problem older people face, with increasing incidence in the mid-thirties.
Signs of aging start to appear on our faces: Forehead creases, droopy eyelids, thin and down-sloping lips, and sagging jaw do not make a cheery appearance. In addition to gravitational pull on the face, wrinkles on the face can cause the mouth to droop and forehead to crinkle. These signs can be perceived as anger or sadness even though the person may not feel that way.
For a person who possesses a “Resting Bitch Face”, it takes him/her to put in conscientious effort to smile all day, which can be annoying and tiring.
Whether you are looking to reduce the clear signs of aging or to minimize the “Resting Bitch Face”, here are some solutions to put the smile back to your face and make you look more friendly and approachable.
Botox: The Wrinkle Eraser
Even after more than two decades Botox was used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it still remains one of the most effective treatment for wrinkles today, especially on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and the sides of the eyes (commonly known as “crow feet”).
By easing up chronically tensed expression, Botox helps the muscles to relax to provide a more balanced and happy-looking face.
Dermal Fillers: Non-Surgical Liquid Face Lift
By making subtle changes to the facial features using dermal fillers, aesthetic doctors are able to reverse the signs of aging and restoring a youthful look to the face.
Facial fillers, or commonly referred to as dermal fillers, are extremely versatile. Leveraging on the doctor’s skill and technique, he is able to restore lost volume by adding small amounts of dermal fillers to strengthen the underlying support that was eroded with time. By placing dermal fillers in strategic points on the face, dermal fillers can help to augment and shape the mouth upwards, while building a more defined jawline to create a natural smiling face.
Using lip fillers, the doctor is also able to change the shape of the lips to alter and enhance the appearance by increasing its fullness and volume. By restoring volume to the lips, it lessens the misleading expression of making one look unfriendly and unapproachable.
Agnes: Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift
As we age, the connective tissues in the body weaken. The tendons that attach the muscles that are responsible for lifting eyelids get worn out and weaken over time, leading to droopy eyelids. Although droopy eyelids can happen due to the natural process of aging, it may also occur due to certain medical conditions. It is important to know the cause if you have droopy eyelids and address the issue quickly as it makes people look older than they actually are. In more serious case, it can also obstruct the vision.
Using AGNES Eyelid Treatment, the doctor uses a special micro-insulated needle to create micro-wounds on the eyelids skin to delivery targeted radiofrequency waves to the eyelids. The treatment stimulates collagen production and remodeling. With sufficient collagen production, the eyelids tighten and reduce the appearance of droopy eyelids.
Ultherapy: Overall Skin Lifting for a Younger-Looking Face
For people who experience mild to moderate sagging of the face, Ultherapy Skin Lifting treatment – a one-time treatment – uses high intensity focused ultrasound to stimulate the skin’s collagen regeneration abilities to tone and tighten sagging skin.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for skin lifting in Singapore. Ultherapy emits ultrasound waves deep under the skin, gently heating the tissue to contract so that it lifts and tightens loose skin without disrupting the skin’s surface. Optimal result can be seen only after 2 to 3 months because no foreign object is introduced into the skin.
