sad face due to aging

There are those who have a sad expression on their faces and are constantly faced with people asking them why they are sad, regardless of whether they are happy. A sad appearance is caused by factors such as time and age. Some people may have natural features that give the impression of sadness.

Dr. Rory McGoldrick, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, discusses the most common causes of a sad face and possible cosmetic treatments to make the face look naturally happier.


Materials used for treatment

Treating lines begins with injecting hyaluronic acid into the face, which may reduce their appearance for a long time. However, it may have side effects.

The types of injections are varied and include caviar injections that give your lips and face a light pink color, as well as hyaluronic acid injections that cause a slight swelling in the size of the lips, which hides and fills the lines of sadness, so do not be afraid to use the (filler) technique to restore youth and freshness to your face. The effectiveness and safety of these must be verified. It is important to understand the risks and potential side effects of fillers before undergoing any procedure. 

Botox and fillers are used for different purposes in treating wrinkles and improving facial appearance. Botox is used to treat small wrinkles on the face, such as forehead lines or lines that appear around the eyes when smiling. Botox relaxes the muscles responsible for the formation of wrinkles, leading to a smoother appearance of the skin, but it must be renewed every 3-6 months to maintain the results.

Fillers are used to add volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, for example, clear smile lines on the sides of the mouth and sadness lines, or any other area that has changed with age or loss and change in weight (and fillers), as we mentioned previously, special materials are injected under the skin to fill Sunken cheeks, deep and simple wrinkles, the most important of which are the lines of sadness. It is essential to choose approved and safe fillers, which should be injected by qualified professionals to reduce the risk of infection and adverse reactions.

Causes and treatment of the sad face

 * Drooping eyebrows: This is caused by a loss of volume in this area, which affects facial expressions and makes the face look sad when it is not. This volume loss can be attributed to aging and weight loss.

Treatment: A plastic surgeon can use Botox to lift the eyebrow in cases of moderate ptosis. It is a temporary solution because it usually disappears after 3 to 6 months, but it is a good option for those who do not want to go the surgical route. . While forehead lift surgery is a permanent solution to the problem, it is a cosmetic procedure that results in a brow lift.

  •       Nasolabial folds: Nasolabial folds or lines form around the nose as a result of loss of volume in the area due to a variety of factors such as aging and significant weight loss from the face.
  •                                                                           treatment:

 Fillers, which improve the appearance of folds while maintaining natural facial features, are used to correct premature nasolabial folds. To tighten the skin and replenish collagen production, filler treatments can be combined with laser treatments.

  •       Marionette lines: These are the lines that appear from the corners of your mouth, similar to the outline of a wooden doll’s mouth. These lines make you look dissatisfied. This also occurs due to a lack of facial volume, and deep wrinkles appear under the mouth.
  •                                                                           treatment:

Marionette lines, like nasolabial folds, can be treated with fillers, but this time on the corners of the lips and chin. On the other hand, you can choose to restore volume with autologous fat injections to make the results last longer.

  •       Thin Lips: While some people are born with thin lips, others develop thin lips as a result of aging, lip-related habits, smoking, and dehydration, all of which contribute to collagen depletion. Thin lips give the impression of sadness and anger.
  •                                                                           treatment:

 The only treatment for extremely thin lips is filler injections, which involves injecting filler into the lips and surrounding areas to increase volume. It should be noted that to give the lips a natural appearance, only small amounts of filler are used. If too much filler is used, the lips will look exaggerated and unnatural.
