Slimming & Definition
For a long time now, a ‘V-shaped’ face has been known to be the definition of feminine beauty in our Asian culture. This look is characterized by a slim defined jawline merging into a sharp chin. As huge proponents of natural beauty, we do not subscribe to the theory that this look suits everybody. Unless your natural facial features and structure go with this look, undergoing plastic surgery is the only way to achieve a ‘real’ V-shaped face, and we all know how badly plastic surgery can sometimes turn out.
For most people, undergoing non or minimally invasive procedures is sufficient in improving their natural facial contour and definition. Over-doing treatments to force the V-shaped look would only end up making you look unnatural, which is something we strive to avoid here at Harmony Aesthetics. We also strongly believe that realistic expectations are key, and that there is no one size fits all treatment. Each person’s face is unique in their own way. Our goal is to enhance your natural beauty, while preserving the features that define you as an individual.
BTX is typically used on jaw muscles to create a slimmer facial silhouette. Using a microdroplet technique, the jawline can also be firmed up and lifted, creating more definition. Placement in the chin also contributes to a smoother contour. Filler injections can be placed at specific points in the temple, cheek, jaw, and chin to improve facial contour.
Ultherapy, Ultraformer III, and Sofwave are non-invasive ultrasound-based devices that work on multiple layers beneath the skin (1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm and 4.5mm) to help firm, debulk fats, and lift the face. This creates better facial definition in both the cheeks and jawline.
Double Chin Reduction
Double chins are often inborn due to the natural alignment of one’s facial anatomy. It can also be acquired from weight gain, due to accumulation of submental fats. Skin laxity due to collagen loss from various causes (aging, UV damage, smoking etc.) contribute to the appearance of a double chin too. Figuring out the cause behind your double chin is just as important as the actual treatment. Blindly going for the latest or most popular options may leave your pocket lighter but with little results to show for it.
BTX injections can be used to sculpt and lift the lower face as well as the neck. This can provide better support for the chin as well as improve overall facial contour. Filler injections into the chin and jaw can be performed to ‘mask’ double chins and provide better lower facial support, in order to lift the area under the chin.
This technology utilizes radiofrequency energy to cause selective destruction of fat cells, while concurrently tightening overlying skin. This comfortable, non-invasive, fast and effective treatment requiring no downtime is undoubtedly our star pick for reducing the appearance of unsightly double chins.
Ultrasound-based devices like the Ultherapy, Ultraformer III, and Sofwave can be used to firm up and lift skin overlying the chin. Penetration of focused energy beams into deeper levels also aid in debulking the fats that contribute to double chins.
