WHY CHOOSE FACIAL SCULPTING/CONTOURING?
Patients often look for a method to help shape or sculpt their face into an oval- or V-shape which is slimmer in profile, with facial sculpting or contouring usually the best option. Asians often opt for this popular and common facial slimming treatment, with the facial features slimmed down to give you a much more youthful appearance. Your skin will also look rejuvenated and healthier.
This treatment is suitable for:
- A square-shaped jawline
- A more masculine-looking jawline
- Chubby cheeks
- “Slimmer” cheeks
- Reducing involuntary teeth grinding (bruxism)
HOW IT WORKS
Acting as a jaw muscle relaxant, Botulinum Toxin (Botox) will help to induce relaxation and also thins down the masseter (chewing muscles) in your lateral jaw. As a results, the nerve impulses of the muscles in these particular areas will be blocked by the injected Botox, helping to reduce the number of fine lines and wrinkles. It also makes your cheekbones appear full while lifting the face as well. Your overall appearance will be boosted and refreshed, making you look several years younger than your actual age.
With only a few simple injections required, Botox is a suitable treatment for individuals that are afraid of or do not want to undergo surgery. Numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to reduce any pain or discomfort. Only small and fine needles will be used to administer Botox; this helps to keep any bleeding, bruising or skin redness to a minimum. These are the only “side effects” as a result of undergoing treatment; actual side effects due to Botox are very rare.
You will notice visible improvements after 3-5 days, and you skin will look smoother as the new oval- or V-shape starts to form. Other facial muscles will be unaffected by the treatment, functioning as normal and ensuring your expressions will not change!

Botox effects can last for about 3-4 months, but this may vary and more sessions are usually required in order to keep up your current look. After a few sessions are completed, you might only need top-up treatments once every 6 months as the effects start to last longer. Our experts will offer useful advice and guidance along the way, as well as scheduling another appointment 2 weeks after treatment to gauge the effectiveness of Botox.
