How to get a V-Shaped Face without Surgery
Asians love a V shaped face. Take cue from the soaps on TV to manga comics, anyone with a feminine, good looking face tends to have a V shape to it.
It may well be the standard definition of beauty (in Asian terms), where in a symmetrical face, the lip to chin distance should equal the distance between the forehead and eyes.
A popular trend across the continent, most celebrities have allegedly had surgery done to enhance this V shaped angle to their face thus resulting in an onset of cosmetic procedures that may or may not help you achieve this look.
If you are looking to get a sharper chin and the highly coveted V shape to your jawline, do think twice before heading for surgery. With advances in aesthetics and science, there are now ways to achieve this look without going under the knife.
What procedures can get me that V shaped face?
The distance from lips to the chin can be altered using fillers. In most cases this is considered more ideal than surgery because it is a quick and minimally invasive procedure and the results can be seen and adjusted during the procedure. The type of fillers being used can be based on your requirements as well as your aesthetician’s recommendation.
How will a V shape be achieved?
To create symmetry along the vertical plane, neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport can be used to define the jawline by reducing the size of the master muscles on each side of the jaw. These muscles are used for chewing and grinding and as most people tend to chew their food on a particular side, one of the muscles tends to be slightly bigger than the other. This can be adjusted by tailoring the dose of neurotoxin used on each side. With these minor adjustments in play, you can easily contour your jawline to give that pointed chin look.
How quickly do the results show?
The use of hyaluronic acid fillers means that the results are seen immediately. While the effect of the neurotoxin (Botox/Dysport) is, temporary and lasts a few months, the change in contour of the face will last longer. With reduced top up doses given at regular intervals, this contour or V shape can be easily maintained.
How drastic is the change?
A significant change can be seen in people who undergo this treatment - almost immediately to give a slimmer, youthful, natural looking, more symmetrical face. So, if it’s a quick lunch time beauty treatment you are seeking or want to get that desirable V shape before a special event; don’t think twice as it really has that quick a turnaround time.
Can this treatment help with any other ailments?
Not just for cosmetic purposes, this V shape treatment also helps people who grind their teeth in their sleep. The neurotoxin relaxes the muscles and the muscle size will reduce over time. As this occurs, other muscles will take over the function of chewing.
Is there anything I need to keep in mind?
As always, we would recommend caution and diligent research on where you get this treatment done. Bio Aesthetic Laser Clinic for one, use doctor-designed treatments to ensure that you are always in medically safe hands.
