Treatment To Fix Resting Bitch Face (RBF)
What vibe does your face give off when you are relaxed? If you have downward lip lines, frown lines or other aging facial factors, you may look unhappy or even angry when your face is at rest. This appearance has been labeled “resting bitch face,” or RBF, an undesirable facial look. Achieve a more pleasant and happy appearance – Maia Plastic Surgery offers non-surgical treatment to fix resting bitch face (RBF) at our locations in the Washington, D.C., area.
RBF affects individuals of various ages, but it is more common as you get older. You may be a happy, positive person but if your mouth naturally turns downward when you are relaxed or scrunch lines appear between your brows, you may look grumpy and unapproachable. Some of the key features that contribute to resting bitch face include:
- Marionette lines – these are the downward lines that appear at the corners of the mouth, creating a “perma-frown” when your face is relaxed.
- Frown lines – the “11s” between the brows that are caused by the glabellar muscles in the forehead.
- Puckered lips – wrinkled, puckered lips can appear to be angrily pursed when your face is resting.
These lines and wrinkles can create a cranky expression on your face. For some individuals, it can affect their work and personal lives. The good news is that you can eliminate RBF and portray a more pleasant appearance with cosmetic injections.
RBF Cosmetic Injections
A combination of dermal fillers and neuromodulator injections are the solution for RBF. Dermal fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane® use hyaluronic acid to plump wrinkled lips or erase marionette lines. This can create a more pleasant mouth appearance when your face is relaxed. Neuromodulators like Botox® and Dysport® injections can smooth away the frown lines between your eyebrows, creating a happier resting face.
If your resting face looks angry and unapproachable, you may be suffering from RBF. Change your look with the help of resting bitch face treatment at Maia Plastic Surgery. Contact our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA, or Chevy Chase, MD, to schedule an RBF treatment consultation.
