How facial shaping & sculpting work

As we age, our facial shape changes. Facial bone volume and subcutaneous fat volume decrease, deflating our faces. As it shrinks & deflates, signs of ageing become more obvious, even from a distance. Jowls and cheeks may appear sunken. 

With the right combination of injectables & other treatments however, we can turn back the clock and reverse the shadows that give that gaunt look.

Facial shaping is used to reduce fat, relax certain muscles, and lift certain parts of the face to achieve the desired appearance.

 

Treatment Options

 

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are used to sculpt & enhance facial features. They are commonly used to sculpt features such as the cheeks, tear troughs, nose, temples, chin, and jawline. 

They can also be used to rejuvenate your face by lifting and defining certain features for a brighter, younger-looking appearance and improved skin quality.

Botulinum Toxin A

Botulinum Toxin A (commonly referred to as botox) is used to make the face appear more slender and less box-like. Commonly used for the jawline, the lower pole of the jaw muscle is injected with Botox to weaken it, thereby creating a slimmer appearance. 

PDO MINT™ Thread Lifts

PDO MINT™ Thread Lifts are a non-invasive treatment used to instantly improve facial sagging with little to no recovery time needed. These thread lifts lift drooping & sagging skin to restore lost facial volume. 

FAQ

How long does the treatment last?

In general, most fillers have a half-life of 6-18 months. However, the longevity of dermal filler is dependent on various factors such as product type, location, needle depth, amount of filler, and the patient’s metabolic rate. 

Results are rarely perfect with one treatment, but can always be perfected by adding more before it has worn off.
