The use of photographs in facial aesthetic analysis

Standard photo shoots are made with the patient sitting on a chair in front of a blue background. In order to achieve a standard in all photo shoots; The shots are applied with a tripod in such a way that the same height and distance are maintained for all patients. The photographs taken are transferred to the computer environment and aesthetic analysis measurements are carried out using the Klonk Image Mesurment Light program.

Before the photo shoot, all cosmetics of the patient are wiped and jewelry and accessories are removed. The patient’s hair is collected and the face and ears are fully exposed. During the photo shoot, the patient’s face should be relaxed and expressionless apart from the smile images. The patient is asked to take a position where the lower and upper lips touch each other and the mouth can be closed comfortably without squeezing.

We used a cross line laser pointer to give the natural head position.
