How does facial balancing work?

When researchers examine what makes people perceive others as beautiful or healthy, symmetry plays a huge role. You might be surprised to learn that most people do not have perfectly symmetrical faces. Facial balancing uses dermal fillers to alter the fullness of your skin and achieve better symmetry.

There are a wide range of dermal fillers currently on the market. Many are formulated from synthetic hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in your skin. Some fillers are thicker than others and better suited to create additional volume in larger areas of the face, like the cheeks. Thinner versions are a great fit for adding a bit of volume around the eyes or lips. 

Am I a good candidate for facial balancing?

It’s important to wait until your facial features have fully developed before seeking out facial balancing, so this treatment is not a good fit for younger people. In general, facial balancing is well suited for men and women in their 30s or beyond who are starting to notice the visible signs of aging. 

Facial balancing usually focuses on adding volume to the midface (cheeks), beneath the eyes, and around the chin and jaw. Of course, if you have deep lines, folds, or wrinkles in those areas, facial balancing also works to smooth them away. 

You can expect your results to last up to a year. Over time, your body will slowly absorb and eliminate the filler material. That said, research shows that dermal fillers also stimulate your body to produce new collagen and elastin, so those new tissues will remain even after the filler itself is gone. 

How do I know which facial balancing options are right for me?

The best way to achieve success with facial balancing is to clearly understand your goals. That’s why the team at YS Aesthetics takes the time to fully understand the results you’re hoping for and to educate you on how dermal fillers can bring you closer to your ideal facial balance and symmetry. 

When you come in for a consultation, your practitioner assesses your skin and facial features to see where fillers can improve balance and symmetry. It often takes a combination of different fillers injected in various areas to achieve optimal results. 

The best way to get started is by reaching out to YS Aesthetics online or by phone to schedule a consultation.
