At Mabrie Facial Institute in San Francisco, we’re raising the bar on great filler results with our exclusive Illumination 360˚ approach. It’s a paradigm shift in the application of fillers, and our patients are thrilled with their results! Here’s a preview of the refreshing difference non surgical rejuvenation and contour can make with Illumination 360˚. Our unique approach to filler can help accentuate your own radiance!
Makeup – The Illusion of Shape
Our approach starts with a concept that makeup artists have known for a long time: the way light interacts with your features has a significant impact on how you look. You can use makeup—highlighting and contouring—to create the illusion of improved shape and contours. Highlight can brighten under-eye circles, disguise bags, and give the appearance of shape to your cheekbones; contour can slim your nose, define your jawline, and enhance your cheeks; but it all washes off at the end of the day.
Fillers – Creating Real Shape
Why settle for the illusion of the look you want, when you can have the real thing all day, every day? With custom rejuvenation and contouring treatments at MFI, you can skip the makeup and start looking your natural best, from every angle, in any light.
Our process—Illumination 360˚—assesses your face from every angle and evaluates how light interacts with your features. Youthful faces reflect light with smooth, even surfaces. In contrast, shadows are created by uneven surfaces (deep folds and creases) that age your appearance. Illumination 360˚ uses BOTOX and filler to lift, smooth, and correct those unwanted shadows for a fresher appearance.
We customize your Illumination 360˚ treatment based on how the contours of your face reflect light and create shadows. There are no cookie-cutter procedures at MFI—your treatment is as unique as you!
Illumination – Your Face Illuminated
This woman is a typical example of the power of Illumination 360˚. Her natural radiance and beauty were “overshadowed” before, and she looked a little deflated and tired. After her series of treatments, the shadows are replaced with flattering contours—cheekbones, chin, nose—that capture and reflect light, for an overall youthful and luminous look.
You can see the straight, clean highlight line down the center of her nose—something many people create with makeup—that she now enjoys naturally 24/7.
Out of the Shadows
This young woman’s under-eye shadows (1) were caused by volume loss in the midface that also created shadowing under her cheekbones (2) that contributed to a flattened, aged look. Shadowing and dimpling on the chin was caused, in part by an overactive mentalis muscle (3), and in part by volume loss and inadequate chin projection (4). Her nasal bridge lacked definition (5), making her nose look wider.
Into the Light
We started by building up the midface and cheeks (1) with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® in order to provide support for Restylane® placed in the tear trough (2). This creates a smooth transition between the orbital area and the cheek and gives the cheekbones dimension, allowing them to better capture and reflect light (3). We used BOTOX® to relax her hyperactive mentalis muscle and smooth the dimpled look of her chin (4). We also injected RADIESSE®—a thicker filler—to give it more projection and bring balance to her facial proportions (5).
The careful addition of Restylane to the bridge and tip of her nose (6) improved its shape and definition, and really brings her whole look together.
360° – Contour & Rejuvenation From Every Angle
Your face isn’t flat, it’s multi-dimensional, that’s why we examine, photograph, and treat you from all angles. Every treatment plan is this detailed because we believe your face deserves nothing less.
Both women and men love the soft, subtle, natural results they get with Illumination 360˚. After their series of treatments, they look refreshed and feel confident, reinvigorated, and empowered.
