Guide to Facial Contouring

What does the term facial contouring entail? The ideal facial shape is very subjective as what is attractive to one may not be viewed as attractive to another. Of course different cultures have their opinions on what an ideal face shape should be. For example, the Koreans feel that females should have a small face with sharp distinctive features whilst the men should have a masculine jawline. Non or minimally-invasive facial contouring treatments can help to further enhance features that individuals may not be entirely satisfied with. These short procedures can also bring an overall balance and harmony to the face. Here are the treatments we use for facial contouring. 


Dermal Fillers

Usually made up of Hyaluronic Acid, dermal fillers give shape and contour to to the face. It fills up hollow areas that suffer from a loss of volume due to ageing and minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also injected into the nose, extending the nose bridge to a desired height. Each session takes around 45-60 minutes depending on the treatment area and the recommended frequency is to return once every 6-12 months.

  • Gangnam Laser Clinic uses:
    • Juvederm Voluma (For nose, chin, nasolabial lines, cheek and temples)
    • Redensity II (For the under eye-bag)
    • Juvederm Ultra XC (For lips with fuller volume)

 

B-TX (Botulinum toxin)

Many of us have heard of B-TX but what does it really do? When injected, Botox paralyses the underlying muscles, causing a blockage between the nerve transmission and the muscle tissue. Without the muscle contracting, the skin will stop creasing, resulting in lesser fine lines and wrinkles from forming. Common treatment areas include the jaw, crowsfeet, forehead and glabella. Our doctors recommend a session once every 4-6 months. Effects may take 2-4 days to show and will peak at 2 weeks after treatment.

Thread lifts

Thread lift is a minimally-invasive procedure whereby dissolvable PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are inserted under the skin to effectively lift and rejuvenate. It tightens sagging skin or heightens the nose bridge through the stimulation and production of collagen around the 3-dimensionally barbed threads. Thread lifts are done under the eye, on the nose, cheeks and jowls. There is minimal downtime with slight swelling and redness at injection sites. Effects tend to last from 12 to 18 months and individuals may return for a top-up 1 to 2 months after the initial treatment.

  • Gangnam Laser Clinic uses:
    • N-cog threads
    • Y-ko threads

 

HIFU V-face lift 

HIFU is a FDA-approved non-invasive treatment that makes use of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound technology to effectively lift and tighten sagging skin not only on the face, but also on the body. The heat generated by the HIFU beams are delivered into the deeper layers of the skin, promoting the tightening of collagen fibres and generation of new collagen as well.

It is also used as a preventive treatment to reduce existing fine lines and wrinkles.  The tightening produces a much desired lifting effect and patients will notice smaller pores, tighter and improved skin tone.

  • Gangnam Laser Clinic uses:
    • HI-PRO V
    • HI-QUEEN

 

Treatments can be combined to further enhance the results. For a V-line face shape, chin fillers are recommended to be treated with Botox at the jaw. The fillers elongate the chin while B-TX reduces the size of the masseter muscle. The result is a sharper chin along with a defined jawline. Each treatment is customised according to the individual’s needs and requests. Consult our doctors today to see how they can improve your facial shape.
