Beauty in the Phi of the BeholderEvidence shows that our perception of physicalbeauty is hard wired into our being and based onhow closely ones features reflect phi in theirproportions. • 1.6180399
What is PhiPhi ( Ø ), is simply an irrational number like pi.What makes it more unusual is that it can be derived in many ways and shows up in relationships throughout the universe. Phi Ø can be derived through: *A numerical series discovered by Leonardo Fibonacci
Phi is Everywhere* The proportions of the human body* The proportions of many other animals* Plants* DNA* The solar system* Art and architectureThe ratio, or proportion, determined by Phi (1.618...) wasknown to the Greeks as the "Golden Section" and toRenaissance artists as the "Divine Proportion
• The head forms a golden rectangle with the eyes at its midpoint. The mouth and nose are each placed at golden sections of the distance between the eyes and the bottom of the chin.
• Science writer Eric Haseltine claimed (in an article in Discover magazine in September 2002) to have found that the distance from the chin to the eyebrows in Langloiss 32-composite faces divides the face in a Golden Ratio.
• A similar claim was made in 1994 by orthodontist Mark Lowey, then at University College Hospital in London. Lowey made detailed measurements of fashion models faces. He asserted that the reason we classify certain people as beautiful is because they come closer to Golden Ratio proportions in the face than the rest of the population.
• Beauty is not just in the eye of the beholder. Researchers say its also in the distance between the eyes and the mouth.• Researchers at the University of California, San Diego and the University of Toronto have identified the optimal relation between the eyes, the mouth and the edge of the face that distinguishes a beauty queen from a plain Jane.
Principles of Aesthetics• Balance• Rhythm• Proportion• Emphasis• Unity

Components of Aging• Thinning of Dermis• Atrophy of Fat Pads• Loss of elasticity• Greater Visibility of Bony Landmarks• Increased Visibility of Vessels• Increased Mental and Mandibular Folds
Components of Aging• Development of Wrinkles and Furrows• Transverse Forehead lines• Drop of Eyebrow and Eyelid• Descent of Corner of Mouth• Thinning of Upper lip and Inversion of lip• Nasiolabial Fold Development• Rhytids – smokers lines• Atrophy of Cupids Bow

Lipswhat defines lip structure and attractiveness.• Dentition• Width of upper vs. lower• Interlabial gap• Oral commissures should be located along vertical lines drawn from the medial limbus of the iris.
Botulinum toxin• Botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) works by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter necessary for muscles to contract• The effects of BoNT-A last approximately 3-4 months, with complete re-activation of the nerves and muscles• BoNT-A has been available and used for therapeutic uses since 1980

Placement of Radiesse into the Skin• Objective is to fill the depression and structurally support the line and provide volume – Inject Radiesse into the deep dermis and subdermal plane – Use non-dominant index finger to guide needle – Deeper threads can be placed to bolster depression – Use thumb and forefinger to massage and mold Radiesse Subdermal Plane

Radiesse & Restylane Histology – 4 weeks Radiesse Moderate tissue response Gel carrier replaced by native fibrinogen, elastin and collagen under the normal tissue repair mechanism Restylane • Minimal tissue response • No native fibrinogen, elastin and collagen is manufactured to replace absorbtion of HA
Mechanism of ActionWhen placed into soft tissue, Radiesse Over time the gel is resorbed and theprovides immediate correction CaHA particles stimulate and supportGel + CaHA Particles in-growth of new collagen Collagen + CaHA Particles

Addressing Some Misconceptions1. Radiesse cannot form bone in soft tissue • Micro-motion presence; No bone morphogenic proteins; No osteoblast progenitor cells2. Radiesse particles do not migrate • Exhaustive pre-clinical studies have demonstrated no migration • Particles are 25-45µm & thus too large (>15 microns) to be encapsulated by macrophage and migrate via lymphatic system • Collagen infiltration around particles hold them in place3. Radiesse will not obstruct X-rays • If visible, its only faint & whispy and won’t interfere • Barely visible on diagnostic x-ray, clearly evident bilaterally on CT scan with no masking of other structures4. Lip Nodules are not Granulomas • Zero granulomas reported in multicenter clinical trials (>1,000 patients) • CaHA molecular and chemical composition is identical to that in the human body and does not generate a foreign body Rx • Not seen as a foreign body so no delayed inflammatory response • Not for use in lips due to muscle motion & cohesive properties of the gel carrier • Nodules are not granulomas – nodules are early onset, accumulations of product, which are distinct from late onset granulomatous foreign body reactions

• When the laser pulses at thousandths of a second, the water in skin (skin is 90% water) heats up to a very high temperature.• The water is instantly vaporized into a smoke plume and residual heat, proportional to the pulse energy (mJ), spreads into the surrounding tissue.• Immediate contraction and epidermal dyschromias are removed.• Ablated tissue and thermal spread of heat causes a natural healing response that stimulates new collagen growth to restructure and restore the dermis to resemble new, undamaged skin. 124

Any Golfers out there?Very Similar theory…. To improve the condition of the green, Golf Course Superintendents don’t remove the entire putting green, they remove a portion, or fraction of it!!!
Hair Removal, Skin Rejuvenation, Acne Treatments, Vascular Treatments and Skin Tightening____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____ The Multi-Application Intense Pulsed Light System
What is Intense Pulsed Light?• Broad Spectrum Light Source – 420 to 1200 nm wavelength range – Filtered wavelengths to provide multiple applications• Delivered in Millisecond Pulses – Pulse duration 2ms to 9ms – TPW (total pulse width) from 10ms to 500ms – Up to 16sec in Skin Tightening• High Energy Output – 50j/cm2 max energy – 22 – 35j/cm2 typical treatment parameters
Why Use Intense Pulsed Light?• Multiple Applications – Hair Removal, Photo Rejuvenation, Pigmented Lesions, Vascular Lesions, Acne, Small Veins, Rosacea, Fine Lines• Popularity of skin rejuvenation treatments – Excellent for clearance of sun damage, pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, fine lines, and acne• Fast and effective hair removal – 40 x 10mm square spot Vs 6, 8, 10, 12mm round spot – Excellent long term results – rivals laser technology
What is Variable Pulsing?• New method of delivering Pulsed Light energy in a safe and effective manner• Allows for peak power adjustments – Peak power is the measure of total energy/ time – NaturaLight adjusts for high peak power when needed (fine hair, light pigment, ect) , low peak power (coarse hair, larger vascular) or medium power, depending on treatment parameters, goals, etc.• Peak power adjustments increase efficacy• Peak power adjustments increase safety• These manipulations dramatically alter the way the energy is delivered to the skin and allow increased controls for the physician
FotoFacial, PhotoRejuvenation, Skin Rejuvenation, IPL Skin Treatments… What do these treatments do?Improve the tone and texture of the face, neck, chest, hands, etc. Tone• Pigmentation, vascular, flushing, broken capillaries• All caused by sun damage Texture• Treatments reduce fine lines, reduce the appearance of pores, add laxity to the skin
Non-Ablative Photo Rejuvenation What patients want…• No downtime• Affordable procedure• Fresh and healthy looking skin• Painless and easily tolerated treatment• Safe and effective
Photo Rejuvenation• Patient consult – Expectations – Herpes prophylaxis?• Treatment coarse and follow up – After care• Technique and settings• Complementary treatments – Microdermabrasion. – Cosmeceuticals – Botox – Sunless Tanning
