“They had style, they had grace / Rita Hayworth gave good face,” Madonna sang in her song Vogue.
As the gorgeous entertainers of Las Vegas know, Rita Hayworth is not the only one who wanted to give “good face.”
Sculpt Spa is the home of “good faces”, whether you are a professional show biz performer, a businessperson, or a homemaker. Our faces are our calling cards, and we often tie our self-esteem to how well they present.
Why Do People Appreciate Certain Types of Faces?
Beauty studies have shown that many people are drawn to, and appreciate, even “symmetrical” faces.
Actress Angelina Jolie has a face that is almost perfectly symmetrical, and she is considered one of the world’s great beauties. Her features are almost perfectly mirrored by the other side of her face and are incredibly even. Being too symmetrical gives an unnatural look, so many believe that NEAR symmetry is the ideal.
Seeking this symmetry is why many seek to improve their features when their face is dramatically uneven or asymmetrical.
7 Ways Botox Creates Facial Symmetry
At Sculpt Spa, there are significant strategies used to correct facial features that may be causing your face to be uneven. Sculpt Spa provides Botox injections in Las Vegas, which serve as a huge tool to solve several asymmetrical features, along with the Restylane family of dermal fillers. These skin treatments are ideal for patients with a small degree of asymmetry and who don’t want to commit to any permanent change in their face.
Botox, a purified neurotoxin, erases lines and creases by weakening wrinkle-producing facial muscles. It is artfully injected into specific points around your face by a Sculpt Spa expert. She knows exactly how to apply the injection to avoid paralyzing the wrong facial muscles and producing a “frozen” look.
Restylane, meanwhile, is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Here are seven facts that you need to know about correcting uneven, asymmetrical facial features:
1. Botox can help rectify uneven eyes
Besides reducing the appearance of forehead lines and other dynamic wrinkles, Botox is also a known treatment for eye conditions like strabismus (crossed eyes) and amblyopia (lazy eye). It is known for fixing brow and eyelid asymmetry to enhance a person’s appearance. Certain cases of asymmetrical eyes caused by uneven, low, or droopy brows are fixed by Botox. The Botox is injected into the lower forehead and the outer tail of the affected eyebrow to relax the facial muscles and lift the upper eyelid. This makes the eyes look more awake and open.
Botox injections work by relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. It effectively lifts the eyebrows and the droopy eyelid in the area. It works differently from Restylane because it doesn’t restore the lost facial volume. Botox is the best option in this case because the eye’s levator palpebrae superioris muscle needs to be “relaxed” and not “filled” for better facial symmetry.
2. Asymmetry is pretty common
Asymmetrical features are considered normal. Perfectly symmetrical facial features are extremely rare. Most people have some degree of facial asymmetry in their eyes, nose, and other features that are based on their gender, age, and ethnicity. Smoking is an example of where a repeated movement can cause asymmetry. The constant drawing and puffing on a cigarette are not done in one consistent way.
This has the effect of strengthening some of the muscles around the mouth which cause unevenness and wrinkles.
3. Several uncommon conditions can cause uneven faces
There are conditions that cause asymmetrical faces, and if that is the case, the cause should be addressed before trying to rectify the effect. These conditions include enophthalmos, bell’s palsy (which Botox is used to treat), and ptosis.
4. Restylane can help rectify cheeks and jawline asymmetry
Injecting a Restylane into the “deficient” cheek creates fullness and volume to improve balance and proportion between both cheeks. Restylane can be used to sculpt and contour areas of the jaw that need more definition.
5. Botox and Restylane can even out lips
Botox can amplify the natural look of your lips by creating a more open mouth, while Restylane can increase volume for a fuller shape, balance any asymmetry, and smooths vertical lip lines. Work with your Sculpt Spa expert to find out what combination of the two will work best for you.
6. Evening your face has numerous benefits besides looks
Besides giving you a more youthful and attractive appearance, your Botox service for symmetry will give you a better balance of your facial muscles. This can provide you with better facial function as well.
7. Solving asymmetry can depend on what caused it
The cause is likely the way you’re programmed and genetics. Genetics can also affect the way your muscles move which can accentuate mild asymmetries, especially as we get older. Your muscles move consistently and in the same kind of pattern. Even if your face is otherwise symmetrical, if your muscle movements are asymmetrical, the effects of these repeated movements will cause unevenness to form at rest over time. Smoking and sun damage can contribute to an uneven face as well. If the cause of your asymmetry is muscle and movement based, Botox likely can affect it.
