A V shape face is the desired shape for many women. And that’s no surprise! A V-shaped face accentuates your cheekbones and chin, making you look thinner and more feminine. But what if you have a round or square shaped face?
Why Do Women Want a V-Shaped Face?
A V-shaped face is usually associated with high cheekbones, a defined jawline, and a smaller forehead. The best example of this shape is the 1950’s glamour icon, Marilyn Monroe.
Many women want to recreate that look, but it can be difficult if you lack naturally prominent cheekbones. That’s why so many women turn to plastic surgery in order to create a V-shaped appearance. Unfortunately, not every woman has the budget for cosmetic procedures or time for the recovery period. So what can you do instead?
How You Can Achieve A V-Shaped Face Shape With Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments?
The good news is that you can create a V shape face with the help of non-invasive cosmetic treatments:
Jaw Reduction BTX
Jaw Reduction BTX treatments involve the injection of small amounts of BTX (Botox) into the masseter muscle to reduce its size and therefore slim jawline. This treatment has been used for years in Singapore by plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and cosmetic centers.
How Does Jaw Reduction With BTX Slim Your Face?
The masseter is one of the strongest muscles of your face and it helps give your face a square shape when you tense up the jaw during speech or while chewing. After applying BTX injections to this area, you will notice some reduction in your chin, cheeks, and jawline within 2-3 days after treatment.
Is Jaw Reduction BTX Safe?
The BTX injections are usually not associated with any significant adverse effects. However, keep in mind that the product will act locally and block the nerve impulses between your nerves and muscles to temporarily prevent muscle contraction. As the result, there is no visible muscle activity in treated areas which can reduce facial expressions. During this time, it’s important to avoid pulling your face by smiling or frowning so as not to worsen the shape of your jawline.
Chin Dermal Fillers
Chin is another area of your face that can be enhanced with dermal filler treatments to create a V-shaped appearance.
How Does Chin Dermal Filler Work?
Dermal fillers are usually made from hyaluronic acid, and these fillers are used to enhance facial contours by adding volume to your chin or jawline. The product is injected into subcutaneous tissue through very fine needles under the skin, which allows for smooth and gradual absorption over time.
HIFU is a medical cosmetic treatment that uses ultrasound to selectively target and treat problem areas of the skin, such as the chin and jawline. One of the remarkable effects of HIFU is its ability to stimulate collagen production and tighten your skin over time.
How Does HIFU Work?
HIFU uses ultrasound technology to penetrate different layers of your skin without damaging the skin surface, allowing for a more comfortable procedure with less pain and downtime. The ultrasound beams reach different depths of your skin to deliver focused energy at very high temperatures in order to stimulate collagen production in the dermal layer of the skin. This treatment can tighten loose chin and jawline tissues, creating a more refined V-shaped appearance from all angles. You will start seeing results from this treatment within 4-6 weeks after treatment, which is also an advantage over surgical procedures that need time for healing before you can see any changes on your face.
Due to its non-invasive nature, HIFU doesn’t cause sudden changes in appearance which can be visible immediately after treatment. Instead, collagen production is stimulated over time through gentle heating of collagen fibers beneath the surface of your dermis. This process triggers the natural production of new collagen by follicles cells, resulting in the gradual improvement of facial contours over weeks to months until optimal results are achieved.
