Do you ever feel a little dissatisfied with your appearance but can’t exactly figure out what’s wrong? It’s possible your issue is facial balance. Part of what makes us beautiful and unique is that each one of us has different features. That said, if you feel like your facial proportions or symmetry are off, it’s hard to feel beautiful.
Thankfully, with injectables, we’re able to restore harmony to the face without compromising on what makes you special! In this post, we’ll explain everything you need to know about lasting facial balancing with fillers.
What Is Facial Balancing?
Facial balancing is a technique of correcting facial volume in order to make the features come together in a more harmonious way. This technique relies on a masterful understanding of facial aesthetic proportions and the mathematics behind them.
There are many ways to improve facial balance, from makeup to plastic surgery. In our opinion, the best tools for facial balance are actually dermal fillers. Unlike makeup, which is two-dimensional and short-lasting, dermal fillers can correct asymmetry and imbalance by actively adding lasting, three-dimensional volume.
Unlike plastic surgery, dermal fillers are significantly less painful and invasive. That’s why they’ve become the secret beauty hack for many Hollywood celebrities.
Facial balancing with fillers is a totally customized treatment since each person will achieve better proportions through slightly different injection patterns. In some cases, a touch of Botox can also help boost facial balance by correcting overactive muscles.
What Areas Are Commonly Treated for Facial Balancing?
The unique thing about facial balancing is that it’s a holistic injection process. The areas we target most frequently are the cheeks, chin, jawline, lips, and nose, but this can vary from client to client.
Normally, dermal fillers are injected into a specific area like the nasolabial folds or lips. With facial balancing, we examine the entire face to understand how to create better proportions with filler.
For example, if you have one cheek that’s naturally fuller than the other, we’ll add filler in the opposite cheek for better symmetry. For someone else, we might focus on adding a bit of volume in the chin and jawline to better balance out a prominent mid-face. The key is to tailor the injection pattern specifically to your needs, which is why a consultation is always a major aspect of a facial balancing treatment.
What Type of Filler Is Used For Profile Balancing?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the best option for profile balancing. Hyaluronic acid exists naturally in the human body, so it’s a safe material that creates natural-looking results. Usually, firmer formulas like Juvéderm Voluma work best, but this will vary from client to client. At SEV, we’ll recommend the precise filler that will give you perfectly balanced results.
How Long Does a Profile Balancing Treatment Last?
Your profile balancing results can last up to two years, depending on the type of filler used and your body’s metabolism. With touch-ups, we often find that it’s possible to use a little less filler each time, and that results last longer and longer.
Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Balancing With Fillers?
If you’re over the age of 18 and you find that your face is slightly asymmetrical or has subtle proportion issues, facial balancing might be for you! That said, if you’re currently pregnant or breastfeeding, have a history of scarring easily, or are currently taking blood thinning medications, then dermal fillers might not be appropriate. If there’s any doubt, please speak to your doctor prior to booking an appointment.
