The V-shaped face phenomenon has been around for almost a decade, not just in Singapore but in the rest of Asia as well, and it doesn’t seem to be dying down any time soon. It is not difficult to see why. The Korean wave shows no sign of slowing down despite having been around for 10 years, and the attractive V-shaped facial silhouette is thus still a big thing.
Many turn to plastic surgery and even travel overseas to countries such as South Korea to achieve their dream facial shape but surgery has its risks. The surgery can be costly and time-consuming, most requiring a long period of downtime. They may even result in complications and trauma. Risks aside, there are also those who are simply not comfortable with going under the knife just because they want to enhance their features.
This is where non-surgical non- or minimally-invasive facial enhancement treatments come in. Aesthetics doctors in Singapore are well-equipped with the medical tools and techniques to help their patients achieve the much-coveted V-shaped look. The signature of a V-shaped face is a slim and defined jawline paired with a well-shaped nose and chin, and this is how aesthetics doctors can help their patients achieve it:
Botulinum neuromodulators is quite a mouthful, that’s why people commonly use the word “Botox”, although there are two other common brands in the market that achieve the same result—Dysport and Xeomin. One of the features of the V-shaped face is the slim and defined jawline, and botulinum neuromodulators are effective in achieving such a result as it can relax the masseter, or jaw, muscles. Larger jaw muscles give the appearance of a bulky and squarish jaw, which is why one of the non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments for attaining a V-shaped face are the botulinum neuromodulators.
Fillers typically are classified into hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers and collagen-stimulating or non-HA fillers. To achieve a higher nose bridge and sharper chin, HA fillers that are firmer and higher in viscosity (thickness and stickiness) are popular as they provide a good underlying foundation, allowing doctors to enhance specific facial structures like your nose. Besides having zero downtime, the results are also instantaneous.
There are many filler brands that fall under this category, and depending on the condition of your skin and the desired result, your doctor will prescribe the most appropriate one for you.
Ultherapy is commonly associated with anti-ageing, and for good reason. So how does it help one achieve the V-shaped face? The micro-focused ultrasound energy used for non-surgical skin tightening and skin firming is effective for lifting the face and that naturally helps to attain the slim, V-shaped face without loose, sagging skin.
There’s no need to go under the knife to attain a V-shaped face when you have non-surgical and no downtime options like the V-Face Golden Trio of Botox/Dysport/Xeomin, fillers, and Ultherapy. Of course, don’t forget to approach a certified aesthetics doctor and share your concerns with them so that they can recommend the optimal combination of treatments for you.
