We’ve heard talk recently about women who have faces that naturally look permanently “grouchy” or upset. Having signs of aging that make your facial expressions convey a mood you don’t intend is actually common among both men and women. Cosmetic procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, dermal fillers and face lifts can help Detroit men and women ensure that their face isn’t reflecting negative emotions that they’re not really feeling.

Facial Expressions in Repose

Age brings a lot of changes to our appearance, especially when it comes to the face. The ravages of weather—especially our harsh Michigan winters—combined with the natural loss of collagen as skin loses elasticity and volume can leave their marks on your reflection. In some cases, these signs of aging are less than flattering, and may leave wrinkles that make you look angry or irritated full-time, even when you’re perfectly happy.

There are a few different ways Detroit men and women can minimize the wrinkles that are contributing to an unpleasant facial expression. Dynamic wrinkles, or those caused by repeated muscle movements like frown lines in the forehead, can be smoothed away with BOTOX® injections. Deeper lines, like the laugh lines (or nasolabial folds) running from the nose to the outer corners of the mouth, can be minimized with a dermal filler to replace lost volume.

With the right combination of procedures, an unintentionally grouchy face doesn’t have to be a problem. In the right hands, there’s no reason you can’t age beautifully…or even with a smile.
