Beauty is subjective and varies between countries and cultures, but the importance of facial balance and symmetry is universal. This has been held to be true since Leonardo Da Vinci used the Golden Ratio equation to demonstrate that the closer a face gets to the Fibonacci number of 1.62, the more it is perceived to be beautiful.
Profile balancing, also known as facial harmonisation or a profiloplasty, is a non-surgical procedure to harmonise the facial features using dermal fillers. Rather than focusing on just one facial feature, an experienced and skilled cosmetic practitioner will consider the whole face from every angle. The proportions of the forehead, cheeks, nose, lips, chin and jawline are all taken into account.
Profile Balancing FAQs
All the information you need on profile balancing with dermal fillers:
Who is suitable for profile balancing?
Profile balancing is a bespoke procedure that is adjusted for the patient’s unique facial anatomy so anyone can benefit from the treatment.
Dermal fillers can lift and fill too flat cheeks, enhance lips that may look too thin, or add volume to a recessive chin that is out of proportion to their nose and other facial features. Men often wish to strengthen their jawline.
How long do profile balancing results last?
Dermal fillers typically last between 12 to 18 months, but this can vary depending on where it is placed. Generally, areas with more movement, such as the mouth area, tend to break down faster in comparison to less mobile areas.
How much downtime can I expect after profile balancing?
As with all dermal filler treatments, downtime is minimal. Results are immediately visible and there should be little bruising and swelling.
Are there any other treatments to combine with dermal fillers to achieve facial harmony?
Balance in the lower face can be further enhanced with fat dissolving injections to remove submental fat and the appearance of a double chin. Muscle relaxing injections aren’t just for smoothing wrinkles; they can be injected into the bulky masseter muscles on the side of your jaw. This reduces them in size, so the jawline is slimmed down and this can even make the cheekbones look more pronounced.
