Asymmetrical Face Treatment
Did you know you can give a number to beauty? This is roughly 1.62 and it is known as the Golden Ratio of beauty.
The Golden Ratio (also known as Phi, or the Fibonacci number) is a mathematical symmetry algorithm that underlies our perception of attractiveness. Studies of the most beautiful women in the world have shown that they have countless instances of this ratio in their faces.
This proves symmetry to be a key factor in perceived attractiveness, especially in female faces.
Why symmetry is important for our perception of beauty
Some scientists believe that we perceive proportional bodies to be healthier. Likewise, if a face is in proportion, we are more likely to find it beautiful. Others think that we tend to perceive a face more aesthetically appealing when it features the Golden Ratio because the human eye can process it faster and that causes our brain to feel ‘pleased’.
How Facial Sculpting can restore facial symmetry
During the initial consultation appointment, Dr Nina uses the Golden Ratio formula, as well as her own personal assessment, to analyse her client’s face and devise a specific treatment plan.
This method works particularly well when it comes to correct a patient’s visible facial asymmetry, such as one eyebrow higher than the other, or one cheek fuller than the other.
In addition, with age our face tends to lose volume and the skin loses elasticity, often becoming saggy. This means that with time, even faces that were previously considered symmetrical tend to deviate from the Golden Ratio.
How aesthetic treatments can help correct an asymmetrical face
Have you got very visible facial asymmetry, which may be especially noticeable in photographs?
Have you got one eyebrow higher than the other? Have you got one cheek fuller than the other?
Thanks to the latest advancements in facial aesthetic treatments, today it is possible to restore facial proportions and rejuvenate older features with a different combination of non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment options.
Treatment options usually include a combination of dermal fillers and botulinum toxin. Here are a few examples.
Cheek Sculpting (or Cheek Fillers Treatment)
Cheek fillers can bring your face into balance by making the cheekbones more prominent. This can give you an instant, razor-sharp definition, and a natural-looking, youthful appearance. The treatment also smooths the nose-to-mouth lines, effectively lifting the entire face.
Nose Sculpting (non-surgical nose job)
This treatment is often required by patients who have had just had chin sculpting, in order to maintain the right proportions and the Golden Ratio of facial beauty. A non-surgical nose job consists in sculpting your nose with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to resolve a range of nose issues, such as:
Correcting a dorsal hump, making the nose look smaller and straighter
Building the nasal bridge when this is very shallow
Optically correcting a septum deviation
Raising the tip of the nose with non-surgical treatments
Chin Sculpting is another popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure and is an excellent and affordable option for patients with a weak and/or small chin, or a chin with irregularities, who want to avoid surgery to achieve facial symmetry.
The procedure involves injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin to improve projection, volume, or definition in the chin. This can also change the contour of the face by balancing the facial features.
Chin sculpting is often required by patients who have had just had Nose Sculpting, in order to maintain the right proportions and the ‘Golden Ratio’ of facial beauty.
This procedure is also popular with women who want to make their overall face shape more feminine, or gentlemen who want a more masculine jawline.
The Brow Lift
Low brows can make your eyes look heavy, while higher, defined yet natural-looking brows have the opposite effect. Our eyebrows are genetically determined, but you can make the most of your natural shape to make your eyes stand out and immediately acquire a fresher, younger look.
A non-surgical brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that tightens and raises the skin on the upper third of your face, specifically the forehead and eyebrows. The eyebrow lift can be achieved with injections of the neurotoxin Botulinum Type A and/or PDO threads, both subject to a full-face assessment and consultation.
Hemifacial asymmetry is a common congenital facial asymmetry that causes an abnormal development of the face. This condition may affect all structures of the face, but most commonly causes asymmetry of the eyes, jaws, ears, muscles/nerves that allow a patient to smile, and the soft tissues of the face.
While most severe cases of facial asymmetry may require invasive surgery, mildest cases can be successfully treated with less invasive aesthetic procedures, such as dermal fillers and Botulinum Toxin A injections.
Bell’s palsy is a condition that causes a temporary weakness or paralysis of the muscles on one side of the face. It can occur when the nerve that controls the facial muscles becomes inflamed, swollen, or compressed.
The primary symptoms of Bell’s palsy are facial and mouth drooping that affects just one half of the face, causing a very visible asymmetry of the face. Luckily, this condition can be easily treated using injections of Botulinum Toxin Type A to restore facial muscle function.
