We usually associate 'sad' and 'grumpy' with older people with sagging skin and deep-set wrinkles. We find it challenging to talk to older people because they always look upset.

Truth is, old people don't exhibit negative emotions much more than other segments of the population. We always associate negative emotions with older people because of their deep wrinkles and the loose skin that hangs down from the face because of gravity.

Also known as 'The Resting Bitch Face' to most people today, it describes a person looking upset or sad even though they may not be feeling that way. It is common for older people to look that way, with increasing incidence in the mid-thirties.

When we hit mid-thirties, signs of aging start to appear on our faces. We start to see forehead creases, droopy eyelids, thin and down-sloping lips, and sagging jaw. Wrinkles on the face can cause the mouth to droop and forehead to crinkle.

For someone who possess a 'Resting Bitch Face', it takes him/her a lot of effort to constantly smile all day, which can be tiring and difficult to maintain for a long time.

If people have been telling you that they avoid talking to you because you look unfriendly, perhaps it's a sign to take steps to minimize the 'Resting Bitch Face'.

Find out what are some solutions to put the smile back to your face and make you look more friendly and approachable.


One of the oldest treatments offered by aesthetic doctors to treat wrinkles, Botox still remains one of the most effective treatment for deep wrinkles today, especially on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and the sides of the eyes.

By relaxing the muscles, Botox eases up chronically tensed expression, providing a more balanced and happy-looking face.


Sometimes signifiant changes can be made by augmenting facial features using dermal fillers of various viscosity. Aesthetics doctors are able to reverse signs of aging by introducing little amounts of dermal fillers in different parts of the face, thereby restoring a youthful look to the face.

Dermal fillers, also known as facial fillers, are extremely versatile. With the doctor’s great skills and technique, volume can be added to deficient areas and strengthen the underlying scaffold that eroded with time.

In addition, dermal fillers can help to shape the corner of the mouth by moulding it upwards, while building a more defined jawline to create a natural smiling face.

Lip fillers can be done to alter and enhance the appearance of the lips by increasing its fullness and volume. By adding volume to the lips, it reduces the misleading expression of making one look unfriendly and unapproachable.


As we age, droopy eyelids can occur due to certain medical conditions or as part of natural aging process. As we age, the tendons that attach the muscles weaken and the muscles get worn out, leading to droopy eyelids.

AGNES Eyelid Treatment is a non-surgical treatment that uses targeted radiofrequency to lift droopy eyelids. Using a special micro-insulated needle to create micro-wounds on the eyelids skin, the doctor delivers targeted radiofrequency waves to the eyelids. During the process, it stimulates collagen production and remodeling. With sufficient collagen production, the eyelids tighten and reduce the appearance of droopy eyelids.


Ultherapy Skin Lifting treatment works best for people with mild to moderate sagging of the face. It uses high intensity focused ultrasound to stimulate the skin’s collagen regeneration abilities to tone and lift sagging skin.

Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for skin lifting in Singapore. After the treatment, gradual tightening occurs, resulting in overall lifting of the face and tightening of the skin.

Best result can be seen after 2 to 3 months because that is the time required to stimulate collagen and for it to develop.
