V-Shaped Face

Having a wide or less defined face is a common aesthetic concern, especially in Asia. It is not surprising that a lot of people desire having a slim, V-shaped face. Many will agree that having a defined facial structure manifests radiance, beauty, and youth.

Aging, water retention, fat deposits, and large muscle groups can make your face look broad. Fortunately, there are now non-surgical and minimally invasive facial treatments that can help you achieve that slimmer, young-looking V-shaped face.

The V-shaped Face: A Beauty Dream

The V-shaped face, also known as the V-line face, is currently the most popular and most desired face shape in Asia. But what exactly is a V-shaped face?

A V-shaped face is described as having a slim lower face with sharper facial features, such as:

More defined and lifted cheeks

A smooth, contoured jawline

A refined and sharp chin

These facial features create a prominent V-line contour of the face. These features collectively result in a fresh, radiant, and younger-looking face.

Why is the V-shaped face so popular?

Many people, particularly in Asia, desire of a V-shaped face because it gives an aura of youth, beauty, and radiance. Experts in aesthetic medicine agree that the V-shaped face is the ideal example of the golden ratio, which suggests that a beautiful face is about 1.5 times longer than it is wide. Because of this golden ratio, the V-shaped face is considered as an attractive face shape that looks great in every possible angle – a characteristic that is very much desired in this era of social media.

How can you achieve a V-shaped face?

The conventional way to achieve a V-shaped face is to undergo surgeries such as jaw reduction or chin implantation. However, surgeries require long recovery periods and are associated in certain health risks.

With the advancements in aesthetic medicine and technology, you do not have to undergo surgery to achieve a V-shaped face. Non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments with minimal to no downtime are now available to give you a younger-looking, radiant V-shaped face.

Non-surgical V-shaped Face Treatments

Non-surgical treatments for a V-shaped face include BTX jaw reduction, Ultraformer III HIFU, and chin fillers. To determine which treatment is suitable for you, our clinic experts will closely assess and evaluate your facial features and target areas such as wide jaws, weak chin or jawline, and loose fat or skin under the chin.

BTX Jaw Reduction

Individuals with a square face shape or large jaw muscles will benefit from the BTX jaw reduction treatment, also known as the V-line BTX.

BTX is a minimally invasive treatment that involves injecting botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that can effectively shrink and relax the large chewing muscles of the jaw. Injecting BTX into these muscles reduces their size by 20-30%, resulting in a considerable reduction of the jaw. The ultimate result is more defined lower face, with a slimmer, V-shaped jawline.

Ultraformer III HIFU

Ultraformer III High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a modern non-invasive face lifting technique that targets loose fat or skin under the chin. Ultraformer III uses ultrasound energy to melt loose fats, stimulate collagen and elastin production for a natural facelift, and induce natural skin remodeling. The result is more defined jawline, slimmer cheeks, and a V-shaped outline of the face.

Chin Fillers

Individuals with a short or receded chin will benefit most from chin fillers. Chin fillers contain high amounts of hyaluronic acid, which augments and revitalizes the shape of the face. Fillers are carefully injected to key areas around the chin to create a more defined, visually appealing shape of the lower face. Fillers injected to the chin area create a sharper chin that effectively reshapes the face.
