Profile balancing or harmonisation is a popular and approved procedure amongst aestheticians and doctors in the cosmetic injectables industry. It’s all about looking at your profile from the front and the sides ensuring a balanced profile from your forehead down to your chin. We cover the ins and outs of Profile Balancing for you below.
What is facial profile balancing?
It’s in the name, Profile Balancing or facial profiling looks at the face as a whole, focusing on multiple key features such as the nose, lips, chin, or jawline, or facial characteristics that when balanced and harmonised work in aesthetic synergy. The results should achieve harmony from the forehead down to the jawline.
So, rather than looking to improve or correct a certain part, it’s about taking a step back and looking at the face as a whole. That is when you realise that by treating a different area or multiple areas in synchronicity, we can create full facial harmony.
How does facial profile balancing work?
Profile balancing, also known as Profiloplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using dermal fillers to alter the proportions of the face in order to balance and optimise an individual’s facial profile.
What does it include?
So, Profile Balancing entails that rather than altering specific features, the approach is to look at the full picture by viewing your overall profile which is The Cosmetic Skin Clinic method.
The face is assessed from all angles, taking into account proportions of the forehead, cheeks, nose, lips, jawline and chin. These areas when balanced can create the ideal geometric facial aesthetic. Our practitioner will select the areas where you will get the most impactful balancing effect if they add definition to it.
Depending on the individual, it can be a combination of non-invasive defining treatments such as cheek filler, lip filler, non-surgical rhinoplasty, forehead lines, tear troughs, nasolabial folds, chin or jawline filler.
