Facial Balancing with Dermal Fillers

Facial Balancing with Dermal Fillers

In recent years, “Facial balancing” has become a buzz phrase in the aesthetic industry. So, what is facial balancing? This practice refers to harmonizing facial features, ensuring that everything from your forehead to your chin are in the correct ratio. The concept on facial balancing started during the European Renaissance, when renowned artist and architects used an equation known as the “golden ratio” to map out their masterpiece.  Thousands of years later, scientist applied the “golden ratio” formula to beauty and facial symmetry to determine the true meaning of beauty.

The Golden Ratio States:

  • A visually balanced face is 1.618 times longer than it is wide.
  • The distance from the hairline to between the eyes, from between the eyes to the bottom of the nose, and from the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin should all be the same distance.
  • The length of an ear equals the length of the nose and the width of an eye is equal to the distance between the eyes.

Facial balancing is most often performed with hyaluronic acid based fillers. As with anything in life there are pros and cons to this treatment.


  • The results are most often immediate, with patients leaving the office with visible results.
  • Not a surgical approach so there is no scarring, anesthesia or extended downtime.
  • Most fillers used are reversible if patient is not satisfied with results.
  • Topic numbing is applied and there is numbing in the product, so, the treatment is virtually painless.
  • The in-office treatment takes anywhere from 1-2 hours with you being able to return to normal activities directly following the appointment.
  • Cost is much lower than any surgical approach to facial reconstruction.
  • Facial balancing is completely customizable and tailored to each individual patient’s need.


  • The effects of dermal fillers are not permanent, with most fillers lasting anywhere from 1-1.5 years with minor touch ups needed.
  • While the fillers can offer great results, they cannot provide the kind of structural changes you would see from a facelift or nose job.
  • Typically, most filler and injectable side effects are mild to moderate. Patients usually experience minor bruising for 24 hours to several days. Other symptoms include rashes, swelling, and potential infection. Filler can migrate from desired area over time, or develop lumps under the skin, although extremely rare.

In conclusion, facial balancing is an art that requires skills, expertise, and understanding of facial aesthetics. Through these soft tissue fillers, you can correct issues of asymmetry while gaining natural results to increase your self-confidence. If you have been considering filler or learning more about facial balancing we would love to schedule a consult for you.

New Year, New Skincare Resolutions!

2024 Skincare Resolutions

I personally don’t like to make New Years Resolutions, feels like too much pressure. But when it comes to healthy, beautiful skin sometimes we need some guidance. So we’ve compiled a VERY FEW things you can do this year to make life easier but get some results!

1: Simplify your skincare routine

I know skincare is a hot trend right now, and I love that. But a lot of people are using way too many products due to so many being the trendy thing to try. If you are applying 5/6/7 products at one time, ask yourself, how much are these actually absorbing? You are most likely wasting your time and your money. Use 1-3 products that you love and are medical grade and corrective. For example:

Morning Routine:

Cleanse: IF not extremely dry. If you are like a lot of our Colorado clients and extremely dry, it is best to skip cleanser in the morning or use a creamy cleanser. You do not need to spend a lot of $ on a cleanser, it is on the skin for about 15-30 seconds. Use something basic and affordable such as Cetaphil or Cerave. Save your $ for the corrective products.

Antioxidant: This is a product you want to spend your $ on. Topical antioxidants fight free radical damage such as UV radiation, pollution, etc. all of which breakdown your skins’ barrier function and collagen and also create sundamage in the form of reds and brown spots in the skin. A high quality antioxidant will most likely contain Vitamin C. Not all Vitamin C’s are created equal, you want to look for THD, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. This is the most advanced form of Vitamin C.

Moisturizer: If your skin requires extra moisture after your antioxidant then apply. You don’t need to spend a lot on this product either as you have already put the correcting product on.

SPF: Apply your SPF last and use something you love. With all the choices out there these days, it’s very easy. Make sure to reapply mid day.

Nighttime Routine:

Cleanse: I always recommend a double cleanse especially when wearing sunscreen and makeup. This insures a clean, fresh slate for your very important correctives to absorb and work properly.

Retinol or Retinoid: These Vitamin A derivatives are the single most important part of anyone’s skincare routine aside from SPF! Retinoids are most likely prescribed from a doctor and tend to be more aggressive but definitly work. Retinols are mostly over the counter, but come in a variety of strengths and tend to be more time released so they are tolerated well by the skin and therefore can be used more consistently.

Moisturizer: A simple moisturizer will seal in water and prevent water loss. The corrective ingredient is on the skin so your moisturizer doesn’t need to be fancy.

2: Get consistent with professional treatments

Monthly treatments don’t have to break the bank. We offer several membership options to make it easy to be consistent. Treating your skin monthly with either a microdermabrasion, chemical peel, hydrafacial, dermaplane etc. allows us to stay on top of any skin concerns you have and improve them. Consistent exfoliation, extractions and collagen stimulation gets the skin in shape and keeps it there. Think of us as the gym for your skin!

3: Practice better sun prevention

Sunscreen can only protect your skin so much. Here in this Colorado elevation we absorb SO much more UV rays than those at sea level. In order to really prevent sundamage you need to apply spf every 2 hours when outdoors and wear a wide brimmed hat to keep the rays off your face as much as possible. A lightweight neck gator like the ones used for fishing are a great idea to prevent redness, brown spots and wrinkles on your neck and chest.

Simplify your skincare in 2024

Consider a simplified approach to skincare in 2024. Focus on quality rather than quantity, streamlining your routine to include essential steps like cleansing, a high-quality antioxidant with Vitamin C, moisturizer if needed, and reliable sunscreen. Consistency is key, both in your daily regimen and regular professional treatments. With a commitment to sun prevention, including frequent sunscreen application and protective accessories in sun-exposed areas like Colorado, you can look forward to healthier and more radiant skin without the burden of excessive skincare rituals.
