Hi i was wondering what non- surgical procedures and surgical would change my face from looking; grumpy, mean, mad, angry to a "happy" more approachable facial expression? People always avoid/ignore me because of my misleading facial expression, I want to improve my approach-ability thanks.

Thank you for your question in regards to a non-surgical face lift. A combination of botox, fillers and possible laser treatments can all help achieve your desired goal. To be sure what would be best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.

You have several non-surgical options that could improve your appearance

Your non-surgical options are dictated by your specific needs, which may include any of the below measures:
1) improving your wrinkles: Botox
2) improving your loss of volume: Radiesse
3) improving your texture: Cool Helium Plasma resurfacing.
4) improving skin looseness: VIORA REACTION radiofrequency treatment
5) improving skin discoloration: IPL
A consultation would be necessary to customize your treatment plan. You may visit the following link to see examples of these procedures.

Dermal fillers are a great option for treating frown lines as well as lip lines. Jowls can also be improved with a filler or a pre jowl sulcus chin implant. Lasers can be added to improve texture. The ResurFX and CO2 fractional laser systems are great adjuncts for skin texture improvement.

A combination of Botox, Fillers, Sculptra, Lasers such as Fraxel will all complement each other and make your skin and the shape of your face look more beautiful.  Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with these advanced procedures.  Best, Dr. Green

I suggest a formal consultation as you have a lot of issues that can be addressed in a consult.  Fillers and botox can be used to shaping the face and improving both dynamic and active lines.  Lasers and radiofrequency devices with or without microneedling/PRP can improve the complexion.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Look happier

These pictures don't portray the description you gave of yourself. They convey a pleasant look. However, expressions change. If you frown a lot and at times look angry or stern, Botox therapy might help. Also a makeover by a good cosmetologist could show you how to emphasize your best features and expressions.
