Having asymmetrical eyes is a problem that plagues countless people. Models and artists who work in the world of fashion and entertainment certainly suffer the most. Having a slight asymmetry of the eyes, for instance, where one eyelid is not as open as the other, can create discomfort and embarrassment in people who use social media. Starecta solved this problem with a biomechanical device that forces the muscles of the face to work symmetrically. It can solve the asymmetry of the eyes, cheekbones, mouth and eyebrows.
This aesthetic problem is gripping the lives of millions of people. Girls are certainly much more affected by this problem and that is why many of them go to the facial surgeon to resolve this asymmetry as soon as possible.
One of these girls left a comment on a beauty forum that summarises all her frustration in a few lines. Let’s read together what it says:
“I come out REALLY BAD in photos!!! I get all crooked, I have a smaller eye, a piece of lip (the left one) wider .. but in reality, it is not! without pulling it, I’m really cute … I have a sweet face, a fleshy mouth, big eyes, a slightly upturned nose, an oval face! The fact is, my reflection sucks! I’m not kidding, when I go to the gym and two mirrors show you on one side and the other there is a very good side and a VERY crooked and ugly side. I LOOK CRAZY I KNOW, BUT IT’S THE TRUTH!!! I don’t mean one beautiful and another ugly side of the face, but a good perspective and an ugly one! Does it seem possible? Does anyone get what I’m saying!?!? Sorry for the rant, but it’s something that grinds my gears!!!!!!”
The asymmetry drove this poor girl crazy.
Eye asymmetries can be subtle or quite pronounced; they can be congenital or formed as a result of accidents or illnesses. But excluding these problems, eye asymmetries can also be caused by a craniomandibular imbalance that causes the muscles of the face to work poorly and asymmetrically.
These asymmetries can be resolved with the Rectifier Starecta.
Why do so many people suffer from eye asymmetry?
The mainstream’s point of view!
According to the most common and current medical knowledge, the asymmetry of the eyes is called Ptosis of the eyelid or blepharoptosis.
The eyelid ptosis occurs when there is a tendential closure of the eye, commonly called drooping eyelid.
The causes of this condition can include: oculomotor nerve paralysis, paralysis of the superior tarsal muscle, myasthenia gravis, the development of brain neoplasms and Bernard-Horner syndrome. The chance of a person experiencing an eyelid ptosis event increases considerably with ageing.
Eyelid ptosis may, in severe cases, require surgery.
Therefore, excluding serious cases that do not involve health problems, having asymmetrical eyes according to the mainstream is a common problem that is not serious, but rather completely normal, which can be treated if you want with aesthetic precautions by the facial surgeon.
So no one has ever wondered if there was another reason besides the aforementioned causes.
Starecta has identified another possible cause that generates the asymmetry of the eyes. This cause is biomechanical, unfortunately, no one considers it. After all, few would know how to intervene appropriately.
I reported the comment of a person who explains perfectly what the common beliefs are:
“ALL Faces are asymmetrical, there is no symmetry in the human body. The fact that for years we are used to seeing each other makes us automatically compensate for these asymmetries, which inevitably come out in the photos because they are overturned.
The ideal would be, but it is pure madness mixed with OCD, to have a set of mirrors (some hotels have them) that reflect our upside-down image and get used to looking at ourselves like this from an early age. This is just a technical disquisition and I hope no one is crazy enough to start doing it.
Obviously, there are also more evident asymmetries that will always be visible, but a slightly cross-eyed person will never notice it in the mirror. They can only do it through photos or feedback from others”.
So unless you have obvious defects the proposed remedies are to retouch the photos with photoshop or for those who want to conceal more invasively there is always a plastic surgeon.
The surgeon’s remedy is to fill the sulcus above the left eyelid with lipofilling or hyaluronic acid or with Plexr on the skin fold on one side which would cause an increase in the mobile eyelid area on the other side.
The remedies can be: botulinum and filler. The risk, in the event of such slight asymmetries as in your case, is that you cannot obtain perfect symmetry”.
In a nutshell, non-invasive methods using botox and fillers can help but it is only a way of concealing the problem of eye asymmetry.
Other very simple remedies can be used by people in the case of photoshoots.
- strategically apply the eyeshadow to make the eyes symmetrical and, consequently, enjoy yourself in the photos.
- strategically outline the eyelid with eyeliner. If the eyes are asymmetrical in a photo or mirror, the eyeliner application does not have to be exactly the same for both lids.
- cut some cucumber slices and place them on the movable eyelids
- place some cold chamomile bags on the mobile eyelids
- firm the drooping eyelids by making an aloe vera mask
All these remedies are ploys to appear more symmetrical in the photos but they do not solve the biomechanical problem.
So let’s see Starecta’s point of view regarding the asymmetry of the eyes and how to solve it
According to Starecta, if you view yourself in photos or the mirror with an asymmetrical face it is due to the cranial mandibular imbalance or lateral deviation of the mandible concerning the skull.
All humans have this mandibular deviation from the skull. Although imperceptible, it creates a notable postural and aesthetic imbalance.
Asymmetry occurs when one side of the mouth is slightly higher than the other. This height is caused by the asymmetrical extrusion of the molars, which in turn create a muscular asymmetry of the face’s masseter and temporal muscles.
These muscles are used for chewing and are the most powerful muscles in the body. Remember that when a muscle is shorter it is also the strongest. The muscular asymmetry of the masticatory muscles caused by an asymmetry of the tooth height affects the whole face.
The face’s skin moves towards the shorter and stronger side of the skull, hauling all the soft and cartilaginous parts such as the nose, eyes, ears, scalp and lips.
Here one eye is more closed than the other and one gets the impression of having a drooping eyelid.
Furthermore, this asymmetry of muscle forces, which starts from the chewing muscles, also transfers to the nerves and eye muscles.
Here is the diagram to understand how this facial asymmetry process occurs: https://www.starecta.com/how-to-look-at-asymmetries/
What happens when we wear the Rectifier?
When the Rectifier is worn, the mouth sends an immediate neuro-muscular signal of symmetry to the entire face. Over time, the muscles that work symmetrically push the soft parts of the face (skin, eyes, eyebrows, nose cartilage, scalp) towards a more symmetrical and correct position also from a physiological point of view.
After a few weeks, this Chinese girl has a much more symmetrical face after using the Rectifier Starecta.
How does the Rectifier manipulate the muscles of the face symmetrically?
The Rectifier succeeds in its purpose because it makes the chewing muscles work symmetrically. But how? When the Rectifier is applied there is a symmetrical redistribution as you close your mouth.
The upper and lower dental arches come into contact evenly. The chewing loads are redistributed symmetrically on both the right and left arches.
This process occurs simply by bringing the arches into contact when we close the mouth and is amplified during the act of swallowing. Furthermore, this neuromuscular signal passes from the mouth to the whole body. Just think of two very significant aspects:
1) The force emitted by the contact of the canines at the moment of occlusion can reach up to 400 kg.
2) Each act of swallowing redistributes 1 kg of force along the entire spine.
The Rectifier forces the chewing and swallowing muscles to work symmetrically. Consequently, muscles shape the skin to the skull. As a result, the more closed eye will open because the eye muscles, eyelid and eyebrow are not pulled by the shorter strong and asymmetrical masseter.
The image below shows a distribution of masticatory forces. They are often asymmetrical and this leads to the problems described in the article.
