Expressive: Reveal the right expression


“Age is not important unless you’re cheese”- Helen Hayes

Ever get told you look sad, angry, scary or intimidating? One usually has to field these questions if they have hooded lids, frown lines and other prominent lines.

The most common lines that most are concerned about are the “11” vertical lines between the brows and horizontal lines that go across the forehead.

The vertical lines that appear are commonly referred to as frown lines. If these lines are prominent they can give the appearance of being angry and intimidating.

The horizontal lines across the forehead, can give the appearance of being tired and older than you are!

These lines are usually caused by repeated facial expressions over time, and these will appear as early as your mid 20’s.

Hooded lids can begin to appear as early as your mid 20’s and it is usually hereditary. Hooded lids can give the appearance of being tired, sad and it is an aging feature.

All of these minor concerns can easily be corrected with muscle relaxants. Face Plus Medispa carry two brands of muscle relaxants, the most commonly known brand is “Botox” and the other brand we carry is “Dysport”.

Botox if offered at $16 per unit and Dysport at $5.50 per unit. This cost variant is due to the strength of the product. Which brand your nurse would prefer to treat your concerns will be determined at a thorough cosmetic consultation.

A cosmetic consultation is a great opportunity to discuss why and how your aging concerns have appeared. Your nurse will provide a clear treatment plan to target your concern and a realistic timeline to achieve your goals.

Patients who are specifically treating frown lines and forehead lines see a huge change in mood and how others engage with them.
The same can be said for those targeting hooded lids.

Muscle relaxants are not a permanent solution for hooded lids but a great temporary option for those who are not yet ready for a surgical procedure.

You can find out more about the injectable brow lift treatment here.

Muscle relaxants last approximately 3 to 6 months depending on the strength of your muscles and the dosage provided within your budget. Your cosmetic nurse will always provide you with options considering your budget.

For those of you who are concerned you may look frozen and expressionless, do not fear! Face Plus Medispa’s team of cosmetic injectors have 1000’s of hours of experience between them.
