Beyond having silky smooth skin, the ultimate manifestation of beauty for many is perhaps looking younger and having more refined features. While celebrities and idols make it look easy to achieve that look, the “average” person would dwell on the fact that it would require going under the knife just to have that gorgeous V-shaped face. This begs the question, “is it possible to get a V-shaped face without undergoing surgery?”
Not only is it possible—there are numerous simple and non-invasive ways to go about it! To give you an idea, here are just a few treatments that make it possible to get a V-shaped face, just like your favourite celebrities.
Fillers are used in restoring the natural and curved contours of the face in a very subtle manner. These are medicinal chemicals that are injected into the deeper layers of your skin. The chemical, usually made out of hyaluronic acid or collagen, helps in refining and sculpting the targeted facial area.
This procedure primarily targets the cheeks or the chin area. In fact, you may observe a slimmer face just after your first session. That’s how effective the procedure is if applied correctly.
Dermal fillers can soften facial creases like fine lines and wrinkles. If you want to reshape your face and gain a more youthful profile, this is the procedure for you.
Botulinum toxin (Botox)
People are all too familiar with Botox being used for cosmetic procedures. It is injected into the deeper layers of your skin, all the way into your facial muscles. It relaxes the muscles to make it appear younger and smoother.
What most people don’t know is it can also make your face look smaller by injecting Botox for the masseter, one of the muscles in charge of helping you chew your food. It can effectively reduce muscle bulk by 60%-80% in size!
Using patented radiofrequency (RF) technology, Thermage is a non-invasive procedure that works best by tightening the skin on your face. Thermage treatments involve the application of heat on the different layers of your skin. This promotes collagen production that helps contour the face and smoothen out fine lines. Within a couple of months, you’ll achieve the optimal tightening effect with noticeable results.
Popular for anti-ageing procedures, ultrasound technology can also be used for facial contouring. It uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to reduce fat on the targeted facial area and also stimulate collagen production. The procedure keeps your skin elastic and gives it an improved texture. Those fat cells that have been zapped by the ultrasound are then considered a waste product by your body and naturally removes it.
By reducing the amount of fat around your jawline, you can achieve a more v-shaped appearance with a more youthful look. It basically works as a non-surgical form of facelift!
While these treatments are not permanent, they can produce long-term results and help you get that v-shaped look you are aiming for. However, remember that there is no such thing as a cure-all treatment for everyone, as it all depends on the shape and structure of your natural face. As such, it’s best to seek the help of a skincare professional to achieve optimum results.
