What is Facial Balancing?

What is Facial Balancing?

At NM Aesthetics in Arlington, Virginia, we create customized services and plans for each client to ensure they achieve their desired results. While conventional cosmetic procedures often focus on just one area like the lips or cheeks, facial balancing takes a comprehensive approach to enhancing your natural features.

Facial balancing is a customized treatment plan that analyzes the proportions and symmetry of your face. The goal is to restore an aesthetically pleasing balance and youthful appearance using a combination of injectables like dermal fillers and neurotoxins (i.e. Botox, Dysport, etc.). Facial imbalances can be caused by both genetics and lifestyle factors. For example, sleeping on your face greatly contributes to facial imbalances because it breaks down collagen and elastin, and also creates sleep lines.

Why is Facial Balancing Important?

Facial balancing addresses issues like:

  • Volume loss in the cheeks, temples, or under-eye area
  • Wrinkles, folds, and loose skin
  • Asymmetries between facial features
  • A poorly defined jawline or chin projection

Megan Francis, founder of NMA and NP, AGPCNP-BC, always says, “Faces will never be perfectly symmetrical, but we do want our face naturally balanced. The 2 sides of your face should be siblings, not cousins– but not twins either.”

By replacing volume in certain areas, while relaxing muscles in others, facial balancing can create a refreshed, rejuvenated, and harmonious look.

The Facial Balancing Process

Your facial balancing journey starts with an in-depth consultation and analysis. Our aesthetic injectors will evaluate your facial proportions, skin quality, and areas of concern. We use advanced digital imaging to develop a personalized treatment map.

Treatment plans may incorporate a strategic combination of dermal fillers/biostimulators to restore volume, neurotoxins to smooth lines, and other medical aesthetic treatments. The goal is natural-looking enhancement, not an artificial or overdone appearance.

Our goal at NMA is to help you age gracefully, with natural results and balance. If you're looking for total facial rejuvenation, schedule a consultation at NM Aesthetics today.
