A Beautiful Face
Our face is the most individual part of our body and thus also gives it most character.
A woman’s face is considered to be attractive when it looks typically feminine, a man’s face when it is typically masculine, at least according to the theory of sexual dimorphism (Sex Hormone Markers Theory). But what exactly are the “typically feminine” and “typically masculine” facial features we find attractive?
The Typically Feminine and the Typically Masculine
According to scientific studies, both men and women find certain pronounced facial features to be decisive for attractiveness (e.g., baby face, cheekbones, chin area), proportions, symmetry and especially the surface. In women and men, typical facial features are hormone-related and of course differ. They instinctively trigger reactions in the opposite sex.
External features and the entire human physiognomy reflect a person’s hormonal and health condition. The individual’s condition can be seen particularly well from the face. The shape of the face, the consistency of the facial skin, changes in color and shadows around the eyelids and under the eyes, reddening of the eyes, external signs of skin aging, skin elasticity, etc. are important indicators for a holistic approach to therapy.
What Do We Associate with a Beautiful Face?
We find those facial and body shapes attractive which appeal to our instincts and (arche)typal conditioning. In their subconscious, humans are interested in maintaining the species, so they react to visual cues originating in a certain balance of hormones, vitality and energy.
There are some highly interesting study findings which show that, depending on the attractiveness-based stereotypes, certain (character) traits can be more or less associated with the faces shown in the study, such as gregarious, creative, hard-working, intelligent and so on. The more attractive the faces, the more positive traits were assigned with them. Judging someone’s personality by external, superficial features is, however, a highly questionable attitude.
We nevertheless react to other people with instinctive, archetypal assessments and prejudices. Perhaps this explains why people have been interested in beauty and aesthetic issues since time immemorial.
Stem Cells, Growth Factors, Platelet-Rich Plasma, and Bioidentical Hormones
Our treatment philosophy is based on enhancing and accentuating your natural beauty with autologous substances. We completely reject artificial “fillers” (e.g., silicone) and firming facelifts during which skin is cut away with scalpels, since these often lead to unnatural and mask-like results.
The human body usually has enough of its own stem cells, growth factors and hormones until the mid/end-thirties. From about age 40 onwards, it gradually produces less of these substances. External deficiency symptoms can be seen in the face in the form of familiar signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging cheeks, loss of volume and sallow skin.
By administering autologous substances or substances similar to the body’s own, these disagreeable signs of aging can be eliminated to a certain degree. Your face will be more elastic and the skin quality will improve making the face look fuller and more youthful.
