1) Why “V-Shaped” Face?
For a lot of Asian girls, the ideal and most sought after facial profile is the ever-so-popular V-Shaped Face! The term “V-Shaped” was coined in recent years by the Koreans while historically Chinese often refer to this as “melon seed face”. Unlike Caucasian, Asians tend to have wider mid and lower facial contour that caused by various factors such as hypertrophy of jaw muscle, square jawbone, baby buccal fat and double chin. V-Shaped Face describes a slimmer and more oval face that narrows to a sharp end at the chin. Such contour makes someone look more feminine, attractive and younger.
2) How is the procedure peformed? Is this a surgery?
As there are many factors that attribute to wider mid and lower face, you will need a professional customized assessment by our doctor. In most cases, Botulinum Toxin A is injected at the side of the face or below the jawline. Other supplementary treatments include dissolving fat pad with mesotherapy or radiofrequency technology. Moreover, filler can be added to the chin to enhance the V-shape. All the treatments are non- to minimally invasive and downtime is minimum.
3) How soon can I see the results?
You may start to see the result after 2 weeks. Progression of enhancement is gradual and maximum result is appreciated from Week 4. Should the filler is administered at your chin, you will see a sharper and more defined chin immediately.
4) How long does the results last?
You will expect the results to last for 6 months after the first treatment. For a more sustainable result, a booster treatment may be required after the 3rd month. With repetitive treatments, the results will last progressively longer.
5) Are there any side effects?
The treatments are very safe. There are several possible side effects such as mild bruising and swelling which will disappear after several days.
