V-Shaped Facial Rejuvenation
Our Instant V Shape Jawline is a non-surgical procedure that gently contours your face for a slimmer appearance. The two-step treatment involves a combination of botulinum toxin, more commonly known as Botox, to reduce the width of the jawline and dermal fillers for the chin to add a defined tip and complete the heart-shaped appearance of the face.
A two-step procedure for a V-shaped face without surgery
Jaw Botox and Chin Fillers are popular minimally invasive treatments to create a softer and more feminine-looking facial structure that resembles a V shape. Botox is an FDA-approved brand of botulinum toxin. When injected into the jaw (masseter) muscles, It temporarily relaxes the muscles to prevent it from contracting. Over time, the muscles will reduce in size, resulting in a slimmer face and more defined jawline.
Step 1. Slimmer Jaw – Jaw Botox
This face slimming treatment is recommended especially for patients who have a squarish face shape or squarish jaw-line. Botox is injected into the masseter (chewing muscle) at both the deep and superficial parts of the muscle to shrink and relax them. Once the muscles are relaxed, the muscle bulk is reduced by 60-80% in size. This defines the lower shape of the face and makes your face appear slimmer.
Step 2. Chin Filler
Effects from chin fillers are immediate; you may observe a slimmer face and more defined chin after the first session. On the other hand, jaw reduction from Botox may take a few weeks up to a month to show significant changes. As your jaw muscles continue to reduce in size, your V-shaped face will become more evident.
Is it painful?
It may vary for individual. Generally, pain is minimal. A numbing cream is usually applied on your face prior to treatment to minimise discomfort.
Are there any complications?
Complications are rare. In the worst case scenario, you may have some redness and bruising at the injection sites which disappear very quickly. Facial asymmetry is possible but rare, and can be corrected easily.*
Follow up is usually arranged at 2 weeks post treatment. Please consult the doctor for more information.
How long does the effect last for?
It may varies for individual. Face Lift and V-Face slimming effect typically lasts for about 6 months, after which the procedure can be repeated. It is usually repeated at about 6 months to achieve the optimal and longer lasting outcome.*
