It is better to see pictures in black and white to be able to see the effect on the shape of the face. The shape of the face can change due to the reversal of the ageing triangle. After wearing the Oralift device it seems the facial muscle are deprogrammed and the deprogrammed facial muscles try to achieve golden proportion on the face and we can see that the face looks more oval.
Again it is better to look at the black and white pictures to see the improvement in skin. Here we can see how the skin looks smoother and how the wrinkles on the forehead do not look as deep. These pictures are eight months apart and when viewing images, it is important to keep in mind other factors that might be affecting the skin. Has the person been on holiday resulting in sun damage?
The lips in this case have had what we call the Oralift effect. As we get older we tend to get a sad, sometimes even grumpy look! This is due to the reversal of the ageing triangle when all the soft tissues migrate downwards: the corners of the eyes droop, the cheeks flatten, the tip of the nose starts to droop, the width of the nose increases and the corners of the mouth also start to turn down….all of which contribute to that sad look.
When taking smile pictures, the aim should be to show the widest smile, showing as many teeth as possible. When pictures are taken with this in mind, the smiles are repeatable and can be more easily compared for changes. You can not compare a half smile with a full smile as the wrinkles on the face of the full smile will look worse. Let us look at these changes in detail.
A healthy and friendly smile can have a significant impact on your first impression on other people. The smile is affected by the ageing process: the teeth can become more crooked and worn down, the colour darkens and the corners of the mouth don’t lift up as much. The top teeth show less and the lower teeth more…. this happens even when we are talking. The smile however, is not just about the teeth and lips.
As we get older, our chin sometimes recedes due to tooth wear and clenching and grinding habits. If these habits are severe they can lead to premature ageing of the face. The Oralift device can help you to stop clenching and grinding , and your deprogrammed facial muscles will try to achieve the golden proportion on the face. In cases where the chin is retruded, the chin will come forward and the opposite will happen if the chin is protruded, resulting in a more pleasing profile.
Here we can see that the chin which was slightly retruded has come forward, resulting in an improved profile and the eyes looking less sunken.
We can also see the improvement in the skin.
