No, it is not a joke. The angry resting face is real. The catch phrase simply describes someone, usually female, whose facial expression often looks angry, grumpy or annoyed even if their face is at rest.
A person who has an angry resting face normally gets asked by people if she is mad or if there’s something is wrong even if she feels perfectly fine. The main culprit is usually the lines between their eyebrows.
The Angry “11s”
Having these two lines or furrows in between the eyebrows can immediately make a person look angry or grumpy that’s why it’s called frown lines or angry “11s”. These wrinkles usually appear when you squint, frown, think or whenever you move your forehead muscles.
However, if you keep on squinting and overuse these muscles, it will eventually leave a deep crease in the skin. This explains why some people have forehead wrinkles and frown lines even if they are not moving their forehead muscle.
Besides from “11s”, some may have “1s” one line or even “111s” three lines in between their foreheads that can make them appear very fierce and angry even though they are not.
In order to treat and remove these lines and wrinkles, the treatment must target the root of the problem – the facial muscle that was overused. This is where a Botox treatment can help.

Botox in Cutis Laser Clinics for a Naturally Well-Rested Look
Although Botox is FDA-cleared for it’s high safety profile, it can give disastrous and disappointing results in the wrong hands. Botox is a powerful neurotoxin so it should only be administered by a doctor who has long years of experience with the treatment to avoid any negative side effects.
At Cutis Medical Laser Clinics Singapore, Botox injections are prescribed by Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, a US Board Certified physician who focuses on safety, effectiveness and natural-looking results. During the consultation, Dr. Sylvia will assess your skin and facial muscles if you are a good candidate for Botox and whether how many units should be used for frown lines.
Botox works by blocking the signal from the nerves to facial muscles, temporarily relaxing the muscles resulting in their inability to contract. When this happens, the wrinkles formed by the targeted facial muscles relax and soften, giving a well-rested, natural-looking facial expression.
If you are a first-time Botox patient, Dr. Sylvia will start will a conservative approach of low dosage to see how your facial muscles will respond to the treatment. A review can also be scheduled to see if more units are needed as every patient may require a different amount (unit) of Botox depending on their facial muscles.
The results will be seen within one to two weeks after the procedure so if you’re having Botox treatments for the first time, you don’t need to worry if you cannot see any immediate improvement of your lines and wrinkles. There is also no reason to fear the “frozen face” or “spock look” as this is dosage-dependent which is why a conservative approach is important to give natural-looking results.
Aside from improving the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles, Botox is also FDA-cleared to treat excessive underarm sweating, strabismus (cross-eyed), urinary incontinence, muscular spasms, and migraine.
