Considered as a beauty requirement in Korea, the V-Face is increasingly popular in the recent years. The treatment is catered for those who want a natural, more relaxed and youthful appearance. A non-surgical facelift is the minimally invasive yet ‘natural’ way of using injectables or facial fillers to enhance your features. For those interested in getting chin or lip fillers, or a jawline (V-face) botulinum toxin treatment, find out more about the benefits, procedure and expected results below.
WHO IS IT FOR?
V-Face treatment is equally effective on men and women. While the optimal age for a patient to begin getting fillers is in the 40s to early 50s, younger patients are treated on a case-by-case basis, depending on situations and expectations. Many patients start botulinum toxin and fillers to maintain their appearances in their 30s and because of this, our patients still look 30 when they are 40! If you have a special event coming up, have the treatment beforehand so that your skin has time to settle down.
V-Face treatment consists of botulinum toxin and fillers injected into the skin to fill up furrows and lift up areas with volume loss. Most fillers are made up of Hyaluronic acid and are considered highly safe products akin to the collagen in our skin. These inert materials can plump up wrinkles with effects that last from 6 to 18 months, depending on the material used. The best way to think of them is a structural support for wrinkle busting and volume replacement.
This treatment can also be used to raise the nose bridge, enhance lips giving a fuller appearance or fill up nasolabial (area between the nose and upper lip) folds with simple injections of fillers. The main advantage of fillers is the enhancement of facial features naturally. The downtime of nasal (nose) bridge augmentation and lip augmentation are significantly shorter compared to a conventional rhinoplasty.
There are many types of approved fillers in the market. Among them, the safest and most popular is the hyaluronic filler. As hyaluronic acid is naturally and extensively found in the skin, this filler acts as restoration to the facial volume lost due to aging.
Do you know that fillers, through their mechanical and chemical nature, help your skin produce more collagen? This means that not only do fillers immediately improve the shape of your face, it also stimulates your cells to extend the effects of rejuvenation!
Treated area will be numbed with topical anaesthesia (numbing cream). The procedure is tolerable by most patients.
Treatment is used to relax your jaw muscles that creates a V-shape jawline overtime, enhance and sharpen your chin with quick and simple injections of botulinum toxin and fillers. It is a structural support for wrinkle busting and volume replacement, using inert materials that can plump up wrinkles with effects that last from 6 to 18 months (depending on material used).
For the first 2 weeks, patients are advised not to have facial massages, as it may alter the shape of the fillers. Patients should avoid pressure on the filled areas (e.g. do not sleep on the nose or cheeks which received treatment).
Patients are also advised to avoid places of high heat (e.g. sauna) so as to extend the effect of fillers. Not every furrow is right for the same type of facial filler. The least risk and best result come from using the suitable facial filler correctly. Therefore, we strongly advocate that you select a certified physician to inject your facial fillers. They are trained to choose the right filler material that will work best for the specific area of your face.
There may be slight swelling (more common in lip augmentation). Bruising, redness, skin rashes and localised swelling may also occur at the injection areas. However, swelling and bruising, if any, should resolve in three to five days’ time.
