How to remove negative emotions from your face

Artisan Doctor, Dr Kathy Gallagher reveals how to remove unwanted negative emotions from your face.

Many clients I consult with are seeking cosmetic treatments because they see something about their appearance they are not happy with. Very often, they are concerned that they look tired, angry or sad; even when they’re feeling the opposite.

So why is it that we see these negative emotions, particularly as we age?

Facial ageing explained

Facial ageing can lead to volume loss in some areas and heaviness or sagging in others, and this can leave the face displaying negative emotions that you may not feel internally. For example, sagginess in the jowl area can be mistaken for sadness and volume loss around the eyes can make you look tired.

The good news is that with a full cosmetic assessment, we can identify and then treat the specific areas of the face that are responsible for these negative attributes.

The Treatment

One of the methods I use to assess my clients is referred to as ‘MD Codes’. This method involves systematically identifying the areas of the face that are contributing to the perceived negative emotions. I then plan subsequent treatments for my clients based on their priorities and rejuvenation goals. Each treatment plan typically involves a number of sessions using dermal fillers and sometimes anti-wrinkle injections.

The Results

Every treatment session is aimed at restoring volume and lifting sagginess on the face. The end result is a naturally refreshed appearance that leaves you looking less saggy, tired or sad. By erasing the effects of ageing that are associated with negative emotions, we can achieve a look that is perceived as more youthful and attractive. Who doesn’t want that?!
