How to balance and improve your side profile with fillers
Facial profile balancing dermal fillers, West Malling, Kent
Do you feel self-conscious about your side profile? Many people dislike their side profile due to having a prominent nose or receding chin/jawline. There are a lot of different features that we perceive to be beautiful, but the secret lies in the balance of the face, and the chin, lips and nose in particular help to provide this facial balance. So, if you’re considering dermal fillers to help you achieve a perfectly balanced facial profile, read on for everything you need to know and the results you can expect.
What is profile balancing?
Profile balancing looks to balance and optimise your facial profile by altering the proportions of the face through the use of dermal fillers. Rather than altering specific facial features, this treatment takes an overall view of your profile, considering the proportions of the nose, forehead, cheeks, lips, chin and jawline. By creating adjustments to the ratios, proportions, convexities and projection of the features, we can help you reach your facial aesthetic ideals and harmonise the proportions of the face from the side view.
What happens during treatment?
After an initial consultation and assessment, your practitioner will discuss pre- and post-treatment care, expected results, and answer any final questions that you might have. They may apply numbing cream to the treatment areas before using a fine needle or cannula to inject small amounts of filler across the desired areas. Dermal fillers can help alter the facial structure by adding volume and definition. This means that dermal fillers can be used effectively to create higher cheekbones, or to balance out the shape of the nose, for example. As a result, for balancing the facial profile, dermal fillers offer a versatile and effective option for changing the structure of the face and balancing imperfections.
How much filler is used for facial balancing?
When it comes to profile balancing treatments, the amount of filler used can vary quite significantly between patients, but generally, you should expect at least 3-4ml to be required to encompass the augmentation of the jawline, cheeks, chin, lips and nose.
Who is a good candidate for profile balancing?
Because of the completely individual nature of profile balancing, it can work for anyone who is looking to improve the strength of their facial profile or enhance individual features in line with others, as the practitioner will work harmoniously to balance out the rest of the face. It will benefit you if:
- You have a misshapen nose that is drawing attention away from the rest of the balanced face.
- You have flat cheeks and want to add a lift and contour.
- You have small lips that detract from your lower face – such as an over or underbite appearance.
- You have a soft chin or jawline that you want to add definition to.
Is there any downtime?
A huge benefit of profile balancing is its minimal downtime; an appointment will generally take 30 minutes (not including the consultation, which should be in-depth to attain your desired results) with visible results immediately. With a skilled practitioner, there should be very minimal swelling and bruising.
