Tired or Sad Looking From Facial Lines & Wrinkles? Este’s Dr. Kiran Explains Why!

Este Medical Group’s Dr. Kiran explains why certain faces look sad or tired. Besides skin laxity, the two main causes of a downturned expression (i.e., droopy eyes or mouth) are muscle tension and lack of volume in the skin. 

Skincare expert Dr. Kiran recommends the two best ways to correct a sad looking or tired face is with either Botox or dermal filler

  • Anti-ageing injections, like Botox, injected at the outer corners of the mouth or eyes can help to lift or raise these facial features. 
  • Dermal fillers injected at the corners of the eyes or mouth can help to replace lost skin volume, helping to plump up the skin, making it look younger and fuller again. 

The best way to determine which of these treatments is best suited to you is to book a skincare consultation at an Este Medical UK clinic near you

Find out how to avoid looking sad or tired in your face with Dr. Kiran’s skincare advice! Here are answers to some of the most asked questions about face folds and wrinkles.

Do Facial Expressions Cause Wrinkles? 

Because of skin ageing, and skin laxity, over time our skin loses its elasticity and flexibility. At some point our faces fail to spring back into shape, and that can make us look older or sometimes it can make our faces look sad. 

Our facial expressions, like squinting or smiling, can lead to lines, wrinkles and folds over time. Repeated facial expressions can cause grooves to form beneath the skin’s surface. 

If you think your face wrinkles might be at risk of getting deeper, then send us a message through our website to book a professional skin assessment to determine the best Este anti-ageing treatment. 

What Causes Marionette Lines?  

Marionette lines (i.e., puppet face) are very noticeable wrinkles at the outside corners of the mouth. These lines can be caused by ageing (e.g., collagen loss) and repeated facial expressions like frowning (also see sagging jowls).  

One way to get rid of marionette lines is with a surgical facelift. However, anti-ageing injections and dermal fillers can help to reduce the appearance of marionette lines. Can Botox be used for marionette lines? Yes, Botox injections will help relax the facial muscles responsible for marionette wrinkles; Botox will help to smooth out the skin in this area of the face.

How To Get Rid Of Nasolabial Folds? 

Laugh lines or smile lines are nasolabial folds that look like deep creases in your skin extending from both sides of your nose down to the corners of your mouth. As we get older these skin creases can deepen and become permanent, especially if you don’t protect your skin from the sun or have regular collagen boosting treatments like HydraFacial

This is how to soften nasolabial folds. Once smile lines or skin folds start to set in, you will need to speak to a skincare professional about Botox (to lift the folds), dermal fillers (to fill out the skin crease), and perhaps laser skin resurfacing. Este Medical offers all of these skincare treatments for nasolabial folds, book a skincare treatment with Este UK today
