Doctors at The Sloane Clinic™, a leading chain of medical aesthetic clinics in Singapore and Malaysia providing advanced aesthetic dermatology and cosmetic solutions, shares groundbreaking insights on the universal laws of beauty; such as symmetry and proportion, and how they are found to be integral in the judgment of facial aesthetics. While surgical rhinoplasty was the only option in the past, doctors at The Sloane Clinic™ introduces Juvéderm® Voluma; the latest non-invasive innovation to achieving a Golden Ratio Nose.

What has mathematics got to do with beauty? Evidently quite a lot. Mathematical rules of the universe, such as symmetry and proportion, are found to be integral in the judgment of facial aesthetics. Understanding these rules of aesthetics will allow for a more objective analysis of facial beauty in any person.

Dr Low Chai Ling, medical director of the Sloane Clinic: "We employ some of these mathematical principles in our treatments to bring out the best of each individual by working towards the ideal facial contour, harmonious proportions and balanced facial curves."

The nose is the one of the defining features of an attractive face. A beautiful nose can boost the beauty quotient of an otherwise plain face. So what makes a nose beautiful? Apparently, mathematicians are able to derive at what constitutes an ideal nose based on equations involving the golden ratio or phi. This is certainly not a new principle, it has been applied for thousands of years in the works of many famous Renaissance artists (including Leonardo Davinci’s Mona Lisa), famous buildings (such as the Parthenon in Athens) and perhaps even in the construction of the pyramids.The gold-colored grid lines in the photo above were created by PhiMatrix, a golden ratio design and analysis application, which overlays a grid template with lines that are in golden ratio proportion to the lines on either side of it. A nose that follows the proportions of this golden ratio is deemed to be more attractive than one that deviates from it.

With so much emphasis placed on this one central structure, it’s no wonder why enhancements however subtle to the nose can instantly transform a person’s face. While surgical rhinoplasty was the only option in the past, a slew of simple, effective, no downtime, non-invasive aesthetic enhancements are now available to give many faces that added beauty edge.

Fillers for the nose    
Juvéderm® Voluma has special characteristics which makes it an ideal filler for enhancing the definition of the nose in an effective yet natural manner. This natural hyaluronic acid filler with its large particles has some advantages over traditional fillers when it comes to sculpting bony areas such as the nose and chin. It is able to provide long lasting definition to the nasal area, adding height to depressed nose bridges, even raising the tip of the nose in those who desire nose tip elevation. Best of all, this FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler will be slowly and safely degraded by your body over a period of 12 months. However, should you like to reverse the results of your Voluma procedure immediately; you can opt for an enzyme injection called hyaluronidase that breaks down the bonds of the Voluma filler, thereby dissolving the filler in a few days.

Procedure details
The total treatment takes approximately 40 minutes. Patients will have their nasal area gently cleansed by a therapist, and a series of photographs and measurements are then taken for the doctor to decide on the most ideal enhancement for the nose. A numbing cream is then applied onto the area to be treated for maximal comfort before the doctor performs the treatment. Some mild pin-prick marks and redness may occur post-treatment but will usually resolve by the following day and can be covered with makeup if needed. Occasionally, mild bruising may occur but they will usually resolve in a few days.

Juvéderm® Voluma for nose enhancements is available at The Sloane Clinic branches from S$1512. Price is inclusive of prevailing GST.
