You know that look you see when you catch yourself in a mirror on a day where you’re overstressed, overtired and just angry at the whole world? It could be because you have what has been dubbed RBF, code for “resting bitch face,” and we’re all subject to it some of the time.
Luckily, there is a remedy for RBF that can change your look, your outlook, and how others react to you too. Botox and Dysport, known as toxins, with or without dermal fillers, are the usual combination treatment of choice, depending on the severity of the issue and the patient’s ultimate goals.
Not all wrinkles are equal and different wrinkles have different causes. For example, glabellar frown lines between the brows are due mainly to overactive muscles and are usually treated first with toxins to relax the muscles. In some patients who have residual creases in the glabella region after treatment with toxins, hyaluronic acid gel fillers like Restylane may be indicated to soften them. The procedure may take 20 minutes and can range anywhere from hundreds to thousands, depending on how intensive the treatment is. It is also not permanent, so you will need to check-in for touch-ups every 4-6 months to a year or more.
The end result of this treatment plan is that it can help to make you look less sad or cross and more refreshed. Contact us at 239-498-DERM (3376) to schedule your visit in Naples, Bonita Springs or South Fort Myers.
