Professional Statement

Natural facial rejuvenation demands natural artistic vision creating proportions, light, shadows, and highlights that are pleasing. When we look at others or ourselves, our brains are wired to analyze the proportions of a face in milliseconds, the blink of an eye! If those proportions are off we immediately conclude that the face “looks funny and unnatural.” Over 500 years ago Leonardo da Vinci defined the proper proportions of the face. There is a “Divine Ratio” that defines beauty. Da Vinci found that a simple mathematic ratio of 1 to 1.618 was found both in nature, exquisite architecture, and in beautiful faces. Did you know that, as your face ages the distance between the inner corners of your eyes never changes? By using that distance, the rest of the features of the face can be restored to beautiful youthful natural proportions. For instance, the width of your lower lip should be equal to the distance between your eyes. Your lower lip height should be 1.618 times larger than your upper lip height. More than lines or wrinkles, “sagging” is the “4 letter” word of the dreaded consequences of aging. From age 25 on, our facial bones lose volume resulting in less support of the overlying skin and soft tissues. Fortunately today we have the tools on our “painter’s palate” to restore our patient’s natural divine facial ratios.
