Whether it is right or not, we all spend a great deal of time trying to judge what others are feeling as we interact. We make judgments that we don’t even think about on a daily basis. Whether this person might be friendly, happy, smart, fun or even a good person to get to know. Our first interaction with people is through the use of our visual observations. This goes back to our caveman instincts as to whether it is safe to be around a person or not. Our initial judgments served as a survival instinct and we can’t simply turn it off.
One of the common emotions that we see conveyed in the aging face is sadness. This is often subtle but a little bit of heaviness to the eye and brow and a downturn in the mouth corners creates what others would perceive as a sadness in the face. Again, for better or worse, it is natural to not want to interact with someone who seems sad all the time.
So, how can we help? We reverse our perceptions mostly through the use of Juvéderm. With Juvéderm, we perform an eye lift, we lift the cheeks to create a tighter eye area and more feminine look to the face. We turn up the corners of the mouth with Juvéderm as well. These techniques take years to master and all the injectors at ReNue understand how to improve the sad look to the face. It is one of the most rewarding treatments we perform on a daily basis.
