The resting features on people’s face can change how they are perceived and can determine their destiny. We are subconsciously affected by these cues. Most of us think that a person’s facial features shouldn’t matter, but we rely on them far more than we imagine. Researchers found that happier-looking faces ranked higher for trustworthiness, dependability and friendliness.
"As we get older, some of us find that the corners of our mouths droop, giving us a distinctly permanent grumpy sad resting face. This sad grin is instigated by the alteration of skin quality, muscle function, support structure and fat volume. Unfortunately, people perceive the droopy mouth corners as a negative cue. It gives them a mistaken signal that the person is sad, angry or grumpy," said Dr. Sam Assassa, founder of Beverly Hills Aesthetics.
SmileLift™ is a revolutionary 30-minute non-surgical "expression procedure" invented by Dr. Assassa. It is designed to turn Perma-Mouth-Frown, a sad permanent drooping mouth corner, upside down thus restoring Mona Lisa Smile. SmileLift™ is an office procedure performed under local anesthesia. "I use a proprietorship tiny instrument to help lift the mouth corners and turn your expression from a sad resting face to a happy one," Dr. Assassa said. No scalpel or stitching is needed. The results are immediate and long-lasting, with minimal bruising and swelling lasting a few days. Best of all, the procedure leaves no scarring.
Moderate bruising, swelling and discomfort do occur and may last few days.
When asked about the cost of SmileLift™, Dr. Assassa utterly replies with a big smile, “Phyllis Diller once said, a smile is a curve that sets everything straight. A Mona Lisa smile is very affordable.
