Assessing the chin and lower face

Assessing the chin and lower face

As an ethical training provider and pioneer in the aesthetics space, we pride ourselves on our high standard of teaching at Harley Academy. 

Our 1:1 Jawline and Chin training provides state of the art e-learning for you to become familiar with the relevant anatomy, product and techniques to deliver this treatment. Upon completion you will be ready to book a 1:1 practical session with one of our experienced mentors in order to complete these treatments competently and safely.   

The image above, for example, summarises how to assess the lower face; more specifically the chin.  The Frankfort horizontal plane is the line between the highest point on the upper margin of the opening of the external auditory canal and the lower margin of the orbit. This is used to orient the head so that the plane is horizontal. A perpendicular, vertical line is then drawn from the soft tissue nasion. The chin soft tissue pogonion,ideally, should be 0 +/- 2mm from this line.
