Non-Surgical Facial Slimming with Botulinum Toxin and TriPollar
In South Korea, a beautiful woman would have a protruding, defined forehead, crescent-shaped eyebrows, single-fold eyelids, and a small mouth. A high, sharp nose and a slim lower face creating a V-shape jawline are also the hallmark of a Korean beauty.
The recent K-wave has purported a new standard of beauty that is closer, more attainable because of the similarity in our Asian features. The V-shape face is one of the most desirable features that has been popularised by K-pop celebrities.
A slimmer face is attractive because it leaves one looking more pleasant, younger and slimmer.
Non-Surgical Facial Sculpting with Long-Term Results
The main reason for a broad jaw is because of the strong, overactive masseter muscles. By reducing the broadness of masseter muscles on both sides of the face, it gives a visible, yet natural impression of a slimmer and sharper face.
Botox Facial Sculpting Programme features 3 sessions of microinjections of Botox – which will give you long-term reduction of the facial muscles for a lasting effect. Non-invasive injections with Botox or Dysport can be used to contour and slim the lower face, relaxing the appearance of a tensed, broad jaw. The injections weaken the muscles, causing it to shrink.
To make the facial contouring treatment more effective, TriPollar treatment will be administered. TriPollar uses focused radiofrequency waves to heat up the collagen fibers in the skin. As they are heated, the collagen fibers are pulled closer resulting in immediate tightening of skin. The deep heating accelerates the metabolism of fat cells and encourages collagen regeneration.
TriPollar V-lift treatment
Ultherapy Facial Slimming is added to Botox Facial Sculpting Plus to encourage longer-lasting result. It provides maximum contouring effects required for a slimmer, V-shape jawline. Ultherapy is a U.S. FDA-approved procedure which uses focused ultrasound energy for non-surgical skin tightening treatment. When directed at a deeper level, Ultherapy Facial Slimming can penetrate the deep, fat layers of the skin to produce a skin tightening and fat melting effect.

By targeting different layers of the face, the added benefits from TriPollar and Ultherapy treatments can prolong the desired outcome of the facial sculpting programme.
Is Botox Treatment Safe?
Even though its cosmetic use is very popular, many people are apprehensive about giving botox a try.
Botox is botulinum toxin which is purified and sterile and is safe to use. It has been used for medical as well as cosmetic purposes. Doctors use botox to treat medical conditions like hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), enlarged pores, and bruxism (grinding of teeth and clenching the jaw). From a medical aesthetic perspective, botox is commonly used to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and tighten the jawline to give it a slimmer look.
Many people fear that the treatment will make them look unnatural and the skin and muscles will lose their sensitivity. This only happens when wrong quantities of botox are administered. Hence, it is important to go to an experienced doctor for a botox treatment. The right amount is key to looking beautiful, yet natural.
How Long Do I Have to Repeat The Treatment?
Botox Facial Sculpting Programme is best done over a program of 3 sessions of about 3 months apart.
For a longer-lasting facial slimming result, Ultherapy will be done on the 4th session. Ultherapy Facial Slimming is non-invasive in nature. Although there is no radical, obvious change immediately after the treatment, it stimulates the production of collagen over the next few months. You will notice gradual tightening of the skin, resulting in lifting of the face and tightening of the skin for a more obvious V-shape contour.
Who is a Suitable Candidate for the Treatment?
People who have a strong jawline or wide or square-shaped jaw who wish to achieve a slimmer or more v-shaped face.
Botox Facial Sculpting Programme is suitable for risk-adverse people who are unwilling to undergo a surgical procedure to augment the jawline. A surgical procedure may have long downtime and cause extensive pain. Most of the time, the results are not reversible.
Assessment by an experienced doctor is necessary to determine if the enlarged jaw is due to the bone structure or muscles in the jaw. If it is the latter, this can be easily addressed by Botox Facial Sculpting Programme. After determining that you are a suitable candidate for a non-surgical facial slimming treatment, the doctor will identify the masseter muscles to determine the degree of enlargement and pinpoint precisely where the injections should be administered.
Is The Treatment Painful?
Numbing cream can be applied to reduce any discomfort if your pain threshold is low. However, feedback from most patients is that there is a tolerable, slight stinging sensation when the injections are administered.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Side effects following these injections are rare. Some bruising or mild swelling may occur at the site of the injection immediately after the treatment but these side effects should subside in a few hours.
Patients may also experience slight difficult in chewing or muscle fatigue in the jaw muscles if chewing for prolonged periods of time. This should resolve in a couple of weeks. Although more effort is required to chew, normal chewing is not affected.
