In this blog from Essential Dental Of Roslyn, we examine facial harmony and the science behind what makes a face attractive.
A Reason For Beauty
When you ask a group of people who they believe to be the most attractive, you will typically receive a wide variety of responses, including those of actors and models. Even though there is disagreement on who is the most beautiful, studies have revealed that there is more that we agree on than disagree on.
Using eye-tracking technology, a research study uncovered that babies as young as three months old spend a greater amount of time gazing at faces adults deem to be more attractive. At this early age, infants have not been exposed to any type of socialization, nor do they have any comprehension of culture or fashion. This is tangible proof that our brains may be preprogrammed to recognize beauty and be attracted to visually pleasing images.
How The Golden Ratio Affects Harmony
The Golden Ratio, sometimes referred to as the Divine Proportion, is a ratio of 1:1.618 that is believed to create the perfect balance. This ratio has been used in the designs of many of the world’s most iconic architectural and artistic masterpieces over the centuries, as it can be found in the natural world in plants and even snail shells. Some experts suggest that humans have an innate ability to recognize and appreciate this ratio when judging the beauty of others.
Cosmetic surgeons with experience have an eye for creating art, and some use the Golden Ratio as a tool to show their clients how they can balance their facial features back to a harmonious appearance. It’s important to remember that the Golden Ratio isn’t a must, as beauty can be found both inside and outside of its measure. Instead, the Golden Ratio serves as a reminder that the proportions of the features can impact how beautiful we perceive them to be.
Therefore, a skilled aesthetic surgeon will never look at one facial feature independently; they will take into account how changing one aspect will affect the overall face, and use both surgical and non-surgical treatments to adjust the distance between facial features, or add volume or projection when needed, to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing look.
Facial Harmony: What Makes A Face Nice To Look At?
Facial harmony is an important aspect of facial aesthetics, and it is used to determine which cosmetic treatments are suitable for a patient. It involves the combination of various features of the face, such as the size and shape of the eyes, nose, lips, and jaw, as well as the symmetry of the face, to create an attractive and balanced appearance.
Facial harmony is not about trying to be perfect, but instead finding the perfect balance of proportions. The measurements of the features are not as important as how they all work harmoniously together.
Cosmetic Injectables: Minimally-Invasive Aesthetic Treatment
In a world of increasingly more advanced aesthetic treatments, you now have more options than ever when it comes to cosmetic injectables. Exploring your options alone can be overwhelming, but the best way to learn how to soften fine lines, smooth wrinkles, and restore volume is to consult Dr. Krasnyansky who can help you explore the latest brands and treatments, such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm.
With record numbers, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the United States. Over 11 million women have enjoyed the effects of Botox. Botox is injected directly into the targeted muscle, where it works to block signals between the muscles and the brain, ultimately preventing muscle contractions in the localized area. When done correctly, these injections only affect the targeted muscles while still allowing for facial expression
Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are becoming the fastest-growing form of medical aesthetic enhancement in the United States. These cosmetic injectables help restore volume and elasticity by replacing depleted hyaluronic acid under the skin. When injected into the layers of the skin, hyaluronic acid binds to water molecules, making certain areas of the face appear plumper. Specialists use Restylane and Juvederm to treat many different types of fine lines and wrinkles, such as laugh lines and marionette lines around the mouth.
