3 Treatments That Can Help You Achieve a Youthful V-Shape

Categories : Aesthetic Tips, Aesthetics

Did you know that Asian age differently? While we show less fine lines and wrinkles, we lose facial definition. In layman’s terms, our skin tends to sag, especially around the cheeks and jaw. It’s a sign of lower collagen and elastin – and for many Asians, it’s the first sign of ageing!

That’s why the V-line face shape is so important. A sharper, slimmer facial shape helps us look younger. But there’s only so much that creams and jade rollers can do! To get faster, more effective results we can turn to aesthetic treatments that restore facial definition and the V-shape.

Botox and Fillers

One of the hassles of ageing is that you’re running low on collagen and time. Even if you know that you need a treatment, so many things can get in the way – your job, your kids, your household, and all the other demands of adult life!

That’s why we love very quick, convenient aesthetic treatments like injectibles. It takes about 10 minutes for your doctor to inject Botox and other anti-ageing fillers into your jawline. The results also last for as long as 9 months – it’s such a low-maintenance way to look younger!

LA Clinic —  a Singapore aesthetic center that offers both chin fillers and other anti-ageing treatments — says that chin fillers are a safer, non-surgical option to create a V shape. Fillers plump an area, and Botox freezes certain muscles that are activated during movement. An experienced Singapore aesthetic doctor will know where to inject this depending on the results you want.

Side effects are very minimal – maybe a bit of swelling that subsides after a day or two – and the only precautions you need to take are to avoid facial massages that can make the injected solutions migrate. Otherwise, you can go on with the rest of your busy life without any bother at all.

The results look natural but are still visible. Don’t be surprised if people ask if you lost weight, or tease you that you look the same as your old college photos! This non-invasive V-line treatment is meant to make you still look like you, but a younger and slimmer version of you.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that use micro-focused ultrasound or high intensity focused ultrasound (also known as HIFU). The sound waves penetrate the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate collagen growth and tighten the skin from within. Since the sound waves don’t damage the skin surface, you can get firmer skin with no visible side effects.

S Aesthetics Clinic, which offers ultherapy for different skin concerns, says that this ultrasound wave treatment can help treat sagging face, loose skin, double chins, eyebags and undefined jawline.

Even if you’re not facing collagen loss, but want to have certain slimmer features, ultherapy sessions can strategically tighten and firm up and lift areas of the face to achieve your desired face shape.

The number of sessions depends on your treatment goals and skin condition. The good news is that there’s very little redness or swelling. In fact, ultherapy is often called the Lunchtime Lift because you can squeeze in a session in the middle of the day, and nobody will ever notice!

Threadlifts

Threadlifts can help you achieve a V-shape that lasts longer than other non-invasive treatments but doesn’t have as much downtime or costs as surgical treatments.

Threadlifts are very effective treatments for visible jowls or nasolabial folds or marionette lines – or in layman’s terms, sagging around the mouth and chin. “The threads – which are inserted into the skin with a needle – stimulate blood circulation and collagen production. This results in tighter and more lifted skin,” explains SL Clinic.

You can see results in about  one to three months, but the best results emerge in 6 months once the skin has produced the new collagen. 

While threadlifts require some more recovery time than other non-invasive V-shape treatments, the results last longer. In some cases, effects last 1 to 2 years – much longer than other V-shape treatments!
