Lakeshore Vein & Aesthetics Clinic can help you make friends

Is RBF holding you back?

RBF, also known as resting b-tch face, is a real thing. Have you ever met someone who looks a lot like the grinch, so you avoid them? Or have you ever walked into work and thought your co-worker looks like Eeyore and might be dealing with some personal problems?

If you aren’t sure what we’re talking about, let us set the scene.


Does anyone specific come to mind?

The furrowed eyebrows, dark circles under the eyes and downturned mouth are characteristics that seem to say: This person is cold, unapproachable, angry and uninterested in a conversation.

Maybe you believe that sometimes people think you’re angry, tired and sad, even though that certainly isn’t how you always feel. It’s not your fault that people think your normal, relaxed face means you’re unfriendly just because you don’t behave like a golden retriever, but it can hold you back from being your best self.

And yes, usually women are the first ones we think of when it comes to RBF. But guess what, men can suffer from RBF too. Everyone with RBF has some sort of story to share about a time when it affected an experience or caused them to miss out on an opportunity.

It can be as simple as an interaction at a local coffee shop when grabbing your morning latte.

The barista greets you happily with a huge smile. You greet them back in a normal tone and ask for a medium vanilla latte with a double espresso. The barista’s mood does a 180-degree turn. They become quiet and avoid conversation or eye contact.

You might be thinking: What is going on? You had a completely reasonable interaction, and now this barista thinks you’re in a terrible mood, but you’re totally fine. What are you supposed to do? Walk around with a big, fake grin on your face all day?

Luckily, there is a solution.

SoftLift combines Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm dermal filler to provide a non-invasive, non-surgical makeover. It requires little to no downtime and can help you get back to being the best version of yourself, without the expense or risk of cosmetic surgery. While SoftLift is effective on its own, what really achieves effective and natural-looking results is the injectors expertise. Finding a professional with excellent technique and great experience is an important part of getting the results you want.
