Profile Balancing Treatments

Sometimes we catch a glimpse of our selves in photos where our profile (or how we look from the side) just doesn’t seem to look right. Either the chin is too small, the nose is too long, the lips are too small, etc. Profile balancing is the combination of treating the nose, lips and chin, using dermal fillers, to achieve a balance across all 3 areas. The aim is to provide enhancements that are subtle which gently improve the proportions of each of the treatment areas (nose, lips and chin), relative to each other. Dr Hayder Ria has spent years perfecting the craft of using dermal fillers to balance profiles in a way that looks as natural as possible but with a visible improvement that will no doubt boost your confidence- no matter which angle you’re seen from.

Why consider Profile Balancing treatment?

Profile balancing treatment using dermal fillers is a highly effective way of improving the structure of the face in a way that looks natural and balanced- it’s in the name! The enhancements could be used to improve the overall structure of the face and can add towards feminising or masculinising the face depending on how it’s done.

Dermal filler is effectively a gel made of hyaluronic acid (which is contained naturally within the skin itself) which can subtly shape the nose, lips and chin towards the desired proportions and balance. Because dermal fillers are found naturally in the skin, rejection is almost unheard of and the filler usually integrates really well- so much so that most people, including yourself, won’t be able to tell that it’s there.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Benefits of Profile Balancing Treatment?
  • Profile Balancing focuses on the overall structure of the face when seen from the side. It’s designed to provide small improvements across the nose, lips and chin to make an improvement that looks aesthetically pleasing while looking as natural as possible
  • Profile balancing treatment could also help to reduce the appearance of the double chin area by projecting the chin with dermal filler
  • The results look completely natural and most people won’t look like they had treatment by the time the treatment settles
  • The treatment usually takes around 20 minutes so it’s easy to fit in between other commitments
  • There is usually minimal downtime and you can usually resume your normal routine immediately after treatment.
  • Profile balancing with dermal fillers eliminates the need to subject yourself to the pain, costs and risks of invasive surgery. It’s significantly cheaper and much much less risky
  • Results usually last around 12 months, sometimes longer

There’s no long-term commitment- in the event that you feel the treatment is not for you, the treatment can be completely reversed with dissolving or left to break down slowly over time. This is unlike surgery where the results are irreversible.

How do I know if Profile Balancing is right for me?

The answer to this is quite simple- if you’re looking to improve your appearance when looked at from the side in as natural a way as possible, at an affordable price, with minimal downtime and without the hassle or expense of surgery, then profile balancing using dermal fillers could be the right solution for you.

Will the results look natural?

Absolutely. Dr Ria is one of the most respected and experienced practitioners for dermal fillers in London with over 20,000 treatments performed successfully over the last 9 years. His focus is on enhancing your appearance in a way that doesn’t draw the wrong type of attention to yourself but rather subtly enhances what you already have or restores what you might have lost in volume over the years.

Is Profile Balancing treatment painful?

Weirdly, no! Most clinics use minimal anaesthetic but Dr Ria’s experience with the procedure has led him to invest in more effective anaesthetic techniques including anaesthetic injections (where applicable) to thoroughly numb the areas before treatment. A topical anaesthetic will also be applied. Dr Ria usually uses a combination of injection techniques which are often only mildly uncomfortable and most people tolerate the procedure without any issue and minimal pain.

What should I expect on the day?

Dr Ria would usually welcome you and start with a detailed consultation. This would include discussing any previous treatments you’ve had, what your understanding of the treatment is and exploring your goals and expectations. He will also discuss the nature of the injecting procedure and related risks. If you are agreeable, Dr Ria will then usually conduct the treatment by first taking a pre-treatment photo and then applying topical anaesthetic while you complete the necessary medical and consent forms. After the treatment is complete, the treatment area is massaged and cleaned and then a post-treatment photo is usually taken for comparison purposes. Dr Ria will then explain any relevant aftercare and offer you information on how to contact him for questions or any follow-up you might require. Dr Ria is always contactable directly by his clients for any clinical queries by email.

What should I expect afterwards?

There will usually be some redness and swelling in the injected areas. Usually this is mild/minimal but can vary from person to person and depending on the amount of work conducted during treatment. It’s usually easy to mask using cosmetics and often doesn’t last for more than a few days

Are there any precautions I should take beforehand or afterwards?

We usually advise that you refrain from drinking any alcohol for 48 hours before your treatment as this could increase your chances of bruising. Other than that, there’s not much you need to do in preparation for the treatment. We do not advise stopping any medication before your treatment. For treatments that include the nose, it is advised that you avoid wearing glasses for a 2-3 weeks after treatment.

Is there any follow-up after the procedure?

We don’t routinely follow up everyone after their treatment. However, in certain cases some people will need more treatment and they would usually be encouraged to come for a top-up or ‘second stage’ treatment (which comes with a charge). However, if you ever feel the need to be reviewed after your treatment for whatever reason then Dr Ria is always happy to offer this free of charge.

Can I see examples of your work?
