Learn how to understand the golden ratio of beauty with NYC’s Lushful Aesthetics, and how cosmetic doctors use the mathematical symmetry of the golden ratio to create a face that is aesthetically harmonious with fillers, microneedling, and more.

What is the Golden Ratio?

How do we define beauty? Symmetrical balance is one way we have defined it over the years, and it has helped us to understand how we can create a cosmetic change that strives for beauty and a sense of aesthetic completeness. The Golden Ratio of beauty states that when a line is divided into two parts in a ratio of 1: 1.618. The result is what we have considered the ideal portion for thousands of years. From visual art to architecture and beyond, the golden ratio has been used as the standard, and the closest thing that we have come to perfection in all realms of aesthetics. This also

How does the Beauty Scale for Facial Aesthetics use the Golden Ratio? 

While a Aesthetic Injector will have the knowledge and instinct to how one might create a more symmetrical face, the golden ratio allows them to use mathematical precision to create a face that is aesthetically harmonious:

  • An aesthetically balanced face is 1.618 times longer than it is wide. 

  • The distance from the top of the nose to the center of the lips is 1.618 times the distance from the center of the lips to the chin. 

  • The hairline of the upper eyelid should be 1.618 times the length of the top of the upper eyebrow to the lower eyelid. 

  • The model ratio of volume in the lips is 1:1.6, with the lower lip supposed to have slightly more volume than the upper lip. 

  • The length of an ear should be the same length as the nose. 

  • The width of an eye should be the same as the distance between the eyes. 

Of course, this is not a rule. Since beauty is a subjective and man-made idea, the golden ratio of beauty is just a set of measurements one can use as a guideline to create a more harmonious and balanced face.
