1. Why is it so difficult to get a v shape face?
These days, many people yearn to have a almond-shaped face. Besides making you appear more youthful, this particular facial structure will look beautiful in any photograph, hairstyle, or neckline. Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with a naturally petite shape. The thing about fat is that it does not discriminate — it can appear anywhere, even on your face. Extra fat can accumulate in your cheeks and under your chin, giving you a chubby appearance and “double chin”. For some people, they might naturally hold on to “baby fat” and hence, have a round “baby face”.
Water retention can also make you appear rounder. High sodium intake, as well as poor blood circulation, can cause excess water to build up. This is why you might sometimes wake up with a puffy look after a heavy, sodium-laden dinner. Additionally, sagging skin due to the natural process of ageing can make you look rounder. As you grow older, your skin will lose elasticity and may not be as supple and firm as before.
2. Is v shape face treatment better than cosmetic surgery?
Cosmetic surgery typically involves a surgical procedure, which means that anaesthesia will be administered to you. Anaesthesia itself can cause an adverse reaction in some individuals. Besides nausea and vomiting, some patients might even experience serious issues like blood clotting and hyperthermia.
As with most surgical procedures, cosmetic surgery means that there will be incisions made into your skin tissues. As a result, the level of risk involved is relatively high. Some complications include infections, nerve damage, scarring, and excessive blood loss.
On the other hand, our advanced facial slimming is completely non-invasive and does not require anaesthesia or any surgical incisions. The treatment harnesses controlled, uniform heat to cause a thermal reaction in your skin tissues. This engages your body’s natural healing process, which will boost your collagen production for firmer and smoother skin. At the same time, the volume of fat cells in your targeted areas will be broken down and metabolised by your body. The damaged fat cells will then be naturally flushed out by the body’s lymphatic system as waste. Overall, this non-invasive treatment will enable you to achieve a slimmer and more supple look.
3. What can I expect during the procedure?
You will first meet with our qualified therapists for a detailed discussion about the overall treatment process, as well as the expected outcome. You can choose to treat your full facial structure or contour specific areas of concern, such as the jawline or jowl.
Before the procedure, a gentle liquid will be applied to your face for hydration. Your therapist will then apply a handheld device to your targeted areas in a steady motion for 10 to 20 minutes. You may feel a gentle warming sensation as the applicator works to tighten your skin and shrink fat. You can rest assured that the treatment will not be painful. After the procedure, your skin will be cleansed and moisturised, and your therapist will provide you with simple post-treatment care steps to aid in your progress. Taking into account the pre- and post-treatment steps, a complete session will usually last about 45 minutes.
4. Will the results last long?
Yes, the results are certainly long-lasting. The advanced procedure is designed to destroy the stubborn fat cells and boost the elastin fibres. Once your damaged fat cells have been eliminated by the body, they will be gone for good. As the method will also continually spur your collagen production, you will get to enjoy firmer and more supple skin from now on. All in all, you can expect to achieve a sharper and more defined jawline. Depending on your ultimate goal, you can expect to undergo several sessions to obtain the most optimum results.
5. How long is the downtime?
One of the best things is that you will not have to spend days or weeks recuperating after the procedure. As this is a non-invasive and non-surgical process, there is minimal to no downtime. You can even return to your daily activities after each session without much fuss. This is a great advantage when compared to other painful and invasive procedures like bone shaving — a procedure that can take months to heal from and carries risks such as chin paralysis and facial nerve damage. You will not have to worry about scary risks or a long recovery time with our treatment.
