Accordingly to Merz Aesthetics, achieving the “Golden ratio” for your face shape and features is the key to possessing a face that is considered universally beautiful.

Merz Aesthetics, the company behind the only U.S. FDA-cleared, non-invasive skin lifting and tightening ultrasound device Ulthera, recently announced that 29-year old Sales and Marketing Executive Nurin Nisha M. Heallmy (pictured in the article) has the most well-proportioned face, based on a total of 80 submissions from Singapore from the “MAAT2 Golden Ratio Search”.

The search was a first of its kind in Asia and sought to promote a better understanding of how facial proportions can translate to attractiveness. It was also an integral part of the launch of the first medical guideline that provides a holistic approach to aesthetic treatments to achieve well-proportioned faces in Asians. The “MAAT2 Golden Ratio Search” was conducted in 10 countries to demonstrate that well- proportioned facial types transcend ethnicities and geographical borders. More than 3,000 submissions were received from Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

During the search, it was found that the oval (65%), square (19%), round (6%), inverted triangle and oblong (1% respectively) were the most common facial shapes amongst the 80 Singapore female participants between the ages of 21 – 54 years old. According to Dr Joyce Lim, Dermatologist at Joyce Lim Skin and Laser Clinic, a member of the local panel for the “MAAT2 Golden Ratio Search”, the oval face shape is the ideal face shape regardless of ethnicity.

Step 2:
Measure the upper 1/3 of the face (forehead to eyebrow), middle 1/3 (eyebrow to nasal base) and lower 1/3 (nasal base to chin). The ideal ratio is 1:1:1


Step 3:
Draw a line down the middle of the face. One side of the face should be a reflection of the other.

If your features are not as proportionate as Nurul’s, fear not as Merz’s wide range of aesthetic products, which includes Ulthera (an FDA-cleared non-invasive skin lifting and tightening ultrasound device), Xeomin (IncobotulinumtoxinA), Radiesse (calcium hydroxylapatite dermal filler), Belotero (hyaluronic acid dermal filler) can be used alone or in combination to help even out features and proportions .

But if you are thinking of looking like a better version of yourself and impressing your loved ones during the upcoming Chinese New Year, keep in mind that it will take at least two weeks from the first treatment to see visible results.

If you want to know how you can achieve the ideal face shape, just submit your questions to MAAT Singapore ( Medical professionals will answer your questions on facial proportions and advise you on suitable aesthetic treatments and products that will help you to achieve a well-proportioned face.
