Look Amazing on Zoom
Look Amazing on Zoom: Is Your Face Zoom Ready?
With more and more people working from home and not seeing friends and family, virtual meetings and get-togethers have become the norm but the burning question you may be asking is this - “Do I look amazing on Zoom?”
If your answer is a big, resounding NO, read on for the tips our top aesthetics experts at Skin Theory Aesthetics™ suggest to help you look great for all these intense closeups.
In a time of social distancing, Zoom has become our virtual workplace, school and hang-out place. It has become the platform to hold not only meetings and classroom sessions but also meet up with friends and family for wine and cheese nights, birthday parties and other social interactions.
However, let’s be honest here. With all the time we all spend in Zoom calls, staring at our own faces close up, we all have become intensely aware of our own perceived flaws. Do you find yourself distracted with your face on Zoom instead of focusing on what your colleague was saying in the meeting?
And are you dismayed how the lines around your lips look more noticeable when you speak or how your jowls seem to be more prominent than ever? You’re not alone.
As Zoom meetings are not going away any time soon, more people are looking at themselves with a new perspective. In this article, our experts suggest treatments you can have to look your absolute best in your next conference call.
Why Does Your Face Look Bad on Zoom?
As we age, loss of collagen under the skin causes skin sagging and creasing. Movement causes the muscles underneath to pull more strongly on your skin.
So, while you’re talking on video, issues like lip lines, frown lines, jowls or lines around the eyes look more exaggerated. Simply put, movement highlights the flaws in your face.
In addition, the front-facing camera has a wide-angle. This can cause shadows around your eyes and nose that puts focus on skin imperfections, blemishes, and wrinkles and can make you appear bloated with a double chin.
How Can You Look Better on Zoom Meetings?
Often, the wrong angle or lighting, or a combination of both can leave you looking absolutely awful. Here are some tips on what you can do to make you face appear fresher, without cosmetic intervention:
Angle. Make sure the angle is upwards. Position your laptop higher so that your face tilts up. This lifts the cheeks and tightens the jawline. If you remember your best selfies, it would be those taken with your phone held high. This works under the same principle.
Lighting. Make sure you have a full light on your face rather than one coming from above. If you have day light, find a spot where you are facing the window, preferably with no windows at the side.
At night, you can use a special LED ring light set at eye level positioned behind the screen. These can be purchased at low cost online and are very worth the price.
Filter. If you don’t mind filters and like the way they can make you look better, you can try Zoom’s filter. This can smooth out your skin tone and improve the look of any blemishes. To find Zoom filters, Click your profile picture and then click Settings. Click the Background & Filters tab. Click the Video Filters.
Look Amazing On Zoom With Skin Theory Aesthetics™ Treatments
Manipulating angle, lighting or filter may help you look better on Zoom but doing this can only do so much. If you want to look amazing on, and offline, you may want to consider cosmetic treatments to address your skin and line problems.
Among the top issues that people like to correct are lip lines, frown lines, jowls and double chin. However, skin issues including dark spots, acne scars and other blemishes are also common complaints.
Skin Theory Aesthetics™ offers a wide range of services that can address these and more that can make you look amazing on Zoom.
As we age, our skin thins due to loss of collagen. This results in loss of elasticity and ability to retain moisture. And this is why we get lines around our nose and mouth.
The face also thins due to loss of fat or movement to the other parts of the face. These factors contribute to skin appearing looser. As gravity acts on the skin, it pulls on both the skin and the fat underneath. This results in sagging eyelids, bags under the eyes, and jowls.
For these issues, dermal fillers offer the perfect solution. These injectable gel-like substances are administered beneath the skin’s surface to add volume and fullness.
We even offer the option of dynamic dermal fillers that work on the folds and creases that only appear as you change your expression.
What are the issues that dermal fillers can help address? Though dermal fillers are often called wrinkle fillers, they do more than this. Dermal fillers can be used for:
✔️ Lines around the nose and mouth - marionette or smile lines
✔️ Static wrinkles that result due the combination of loss of collagen and fat, loss of elasticity and gravity
✔️ Vertical lip lines, otherwise known as smoker’s lines
✔️ Sunken cheeks and temples
✔️ Chin crease
✔️ Jowls and double chin
✔️ Droopy eyelids
✔️ Under eye bags
Skin Theory Aesthetics™ specializes in dermal filler injectables using Hyaluronic Acid and Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA). Depending on your needs and your unique facial structure and expectations, your specialist will recommend what kind of dermal filler to use to yield the best results.
We use FDA approved dermal fillers, including:
Botox®️ and Xeomin®️
Called neuromodulators, Botox® and its alternative, Xeomin® are popular injectables that help improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in your face.
Neuromodulators are a diluted and purified form of the toxin produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. They work by reducing contractions of facial muscles resulting in reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Botox®️ and Xeomin®️ are suitable for:
Crow’s feet - the wrinkles around the eyes
Horizontal creases on the forehead
The “elevens” or frown lines
Lines at the corners of the mouth
“Cobblestone” skin on the chin
If your double chin offers an unwelcome distraction each time you go on Zoom meetings, Kybella may be the answer to your woes. While surgery is an option, do you really want to go under the knife?
Approved by the FDA in 2015, Kybella offers results with none of the drawbacks of surgery. It’s an injectable with synthetic deoxycholic acid as its active ingredient. This substance breaks down fat by destroying the cell membrane.
After injection into the treatment area, the targeted fat cells are sloughed off by the body naturally 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment. Because the fat cells are sloughed off naturally, Kybella’s results appear gradually making the change in your appearance more natural to those who see you all the time.
Ultherapy offers the skin lifting and tightening benefits of a facelift without the surgery. If you’re bothered by sagging and wrinkles on the face, neck and chest, this amazing treatment is for you.
Fat pockets under the chin and on the neck translate into a double chin which can look doubly awful on Zoom. They can also cause droopy brows that can make you look old and tired. These can quickly be addressed using Ultherapy.
This non-invasive procedure uses microfocused ultrasound applied to the target areas. This generates a thermal effect under the skin which works to stimulate your skin to produce collagen which is a natural protein that keeps the skin firm and toned.
Theory™ ⛛ Lift
Skin Theory Aesthetics ™ is especially proud of the Theory ⛛ Lift™. This revolutionary liquid facelift treatment can lift and tighten facial skin. This eliminates lines and sagging that can definitely make you look older on Zoom or off.
The Theory ⛛ Lift™ reverses the effects of time.
