Why Is My Resting Face So Sad? How Can Facial Injectables Get Rid Of It?

Whether we like it or not, appearance and first impressions can play a significant role in how we are perceived by others. It is natural to desire a face that radiates positivity and vibrancy. 

However, for some individuals as we age our resting face may appear sad, tired, or even angry. Facial injectables have emerged as an effective tool to combat concerns associated with ageing. 

This blog aims to consider the various reasons behind a sad resting face and explore how facial injectables can help in enhancing appearance and overall sense of well-being.

What is a Sad Resting Face? 

A sad resting face is commonly characterised by a downturned mouth, drooping corners of the lips, and a generally tired or dejected expression, even when you are not experiencing any emotional distress. This phenomenon can be due to numerous factors, including genetics, loss of facial volume, muscle movements, and ageing.

How can Facial Injectables help cure a sad resting face? 

Facial injectables, which include dermal fillers and botulinum toxin injections, can help address the subtle facial features which contribute to a sad expression whilst also rejuvenating your overall appearance. Let’s explore the benefits of these treatments in tackling the sad resting face:

1. Dermal Fillers for Volume Restoration:

Loss of facial volume commonly caused by ageing, can contribute to a sad or tired appearance. Dermal fillers, typically made from hyaluronic acid, offer a non-surgical solution by replenishing lost volume and restoring youthful contours. By plumping up areas such as the cheeks, lips, and tear troughs, dermal fillers can help to reduce shadows and create a more refreshed and happier appearance which can get rid of your sad resting face.

2. Botulinum Toxin Injections for Expression Lines:

Dynamic wrinkles, caused by repetitive facial muscle movements, can lend a sadder appearance. Botulinum toxin injections, commonly known as Botox, are an anti-wrinkle treatment that can temporarily relax the targeted muscles, smoothing out lines and wrinkles. By preventing the formation of frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet, these injections can often soften the sad expression and promote a more cheerful expression.

3. Overall Facial Rejuvenation:

For many, a combination of dermal fillers and botulinum toxin injections may be required to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. This individual approach ensures that all aspects of a sad resting face, including volume loss and wrinkles, are effectively addressed, resulting in a more balanced, less shadowed, youthful, and contented appearance.


A sad resting face often makes people self-conscious and can affect your overall confidence and happiness. Fortunately, with the advancements in facial aesthetics treatments, facial injectables have emerged as a reliable solution to combat this concern. By using dermal fillers to restore lost volume and botulinum toxin injections to relax frown lines and wrinkles, individuals can achieve a more positive and vibrant appearance. If you are troubled by a sad resting face, it is worth considering a consultation with a qualified aesthetic professional to determine the best course of action.
