What is V Sculpt?
V Sculpt is a popular non-surgical treatment especially amongst Oriental and Asian girls to achieve a V shaped face. It is common knowledge that many Chinese or Far Eastern girls love the V shaped lower face. They often seek surgical treatment in South Korea (hence the boom in South Korean cosmetic surgery) to achieve that look and will go to all extremes including having part of their jaw bone (mandible) chiseled off. In parts of the far east, it is not uncommon to receive a gift of cosmetic surgery when one reaches the age of 18, 21 or when you graduate from university.
How does V Sculpt work?
V Sculpt is a bespoke, tried and tested non-invasive treatment to achieve the V look without surgery but using a combination of Botox®, dermal fillers, fat dissolving injections (Aqualyx) and radio frequency (RF) depending on each individual.
- Botox® (Botulinum toxin) if necessary to treat masseter hyperthrophy. This is the muscle that can cause bruxism (teeth grinding). Located at the jaw, this is a muscle of mastication (helps to chew your food). Injections of this muscle should only be done by a medical professional who understands facial anatomy and can adequately deal with possible complications.
- Dermal fillers (hyaluronic acid) such as Juvederm, Teosyal (Teoxane), Restylane, Belotero or Ellanse (polycaprolactone) can help define the jaw line by masking any presence of jowls or chin augmentation. By injecting dermal fillers into the chin, this will help to reshape the face and thus giving it a sharper look; the V shape.
- Fat dissolving injections such as Aqualyx or Kybella and help to dissolve any excessive baby fat to shape and sculpt the face and better define the V shape.
- Radio frequency using eTwo or Thermi RF can also help with skin tightening to help define that sharp V shape face.
The above treatments of course can also be applied for those who are not interested in Oriental cosmetic surgery but merely wanting to improve their lower face, jaw line or sagging jowls. V sculpt is also called a jowl lift by many ladies who are starting to lose that jaw line definition without having a thread lift. The jawline fillers can help to mask the jowls and help redefine the lower face giving it a sharper V shape appearance.
It is very important to consider facial harmony in these treatments in order to achieve the perfect V look without overdoing it, looking overdone and not natural.
For permanent or longer lasting results, you may want to consider VASER Lipo using liposuction to help with a V shape definition if fat pockets are the main concern. Thermi RF (radio frequency) technology can help with skin tightening after liposuction to give the jawline and lower face a better definition.
