What is the most desirable face shape?
Studies have found that face shapes resulting in a heart shape or commonly known as V shape, is the most ideal across different communities. According to a study published by the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, “A heart-shaped midface is the quintessential symbol of youth and remains the overarching goal of midfacial rejuvenation.” In Asia, a study found that the heart and oval face shape was the most ideal with a smaller, more pointed chin.
Different types of face shape
How to get a V shape face
Here are some non-invasive ways to get a V shape face:
Getting rid of stubborn fat in the submental area (double chin), may require more than just diet and exercise. Get a V shape face with Ultherapy – a US FDA-cleared treatment for non-surgical lifting of the double chin and neck. Ultherapy stimulates collagen production to lift tissue in this hard-to-treat area without downtime. Results can be seen in two to three months and can gradually improve up to six months.
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances made of hyaluronic acid and are commonly used for restoring volume loss and facial augmentation. A weak jawline and receding chin could be hindering you from having a V shape face. Dermal fillers can help to increase chin projection and length, achieving a more defined profile typical of a V shape face. Treatment results can last from six to nine months.
To get a V shape face, botulinum toxin (commonly known as Botox) can be injected to slim the jaw and give a pointier look. Botulinum toxin helps to relax the muscles by blocking the signals between the nerves and muscles. When the jaw muscles are relaxed, muscle size is also reduced creating that V shape face. Results can be seen in one month and will gradually improve over time.
Thread lift is a non-surgical procedure that uses 100% bio-compatible and bio-absorbable threads that act as scaffolding to lift and tighten skin. Thread lift can be used to contour the face, giving a sharper and more youthful appearance. It can be used to lift cheeks and jawline for a more defined V shape face. The result is almost instant and can last nine to 18 months.
Maintaining the results of the treatments
To ensure lasting results of the treatments, you may opt for lifting or tightening treatments such as Exilis Ultra 360. Exilis Ultra 360 is a US FDA-cleared treatment that utilizes a combination of monopolar radio frequency and ultrasound, to lift and tighten the face.
Alternatively, medi-facials such as Designer Contour utilizes radio frequency that stimulates collagen production to smooth and lift skin.
Your doctor may recommend a combination of the above treatments to get the face shape that you desire. The methods above are aesthetic treatments that should be administered by certified and licensed doctors.
