Create a V shaped face with refined jawline ∙ Non-surgical operation
Like the face or leg slimming injection, facial contouring injection is another simple treatment that you can easily have done during your lunch break and then get straight back to your life. It is an open secret how ladies maintain their beauty during their busy life.
– Ai Beauty Facial Contouring Injection-
The facial contouring treatment in the Ai Beauty Clinic is performed by injecting botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid at the lower jaw area. It results in slimming down the face and creating a more defined jawline.
◎ Facial Contouring Injection with Botulinum toxin:
The facial muscles are mostly striated muscles that has contraction function. Botulinum toxin in the Botox solution can block the signal communication between nerves and muscles and hence paralyses and shrinks the overly used muscles. If the injection takes place in the centre of a muscle, the muscle will contract and pull to its both ends. If the injection takes place on the bottom of a muscle, the muscle will contract and pull upwards. In contrast, if the injection takes place on the top of a muscle, the muscle will contract and pull downwards. This is the basic principle of how botulinum toxin is used for creating a desired facial appearance.
The facial contouring treatment by botulinum toxin is to inject the solution in the facial muscles at multiple locations. The injection locations are carefully selected based on the nature of botulinum toxin and the dynamic of muscular contraction. By relaxing certain locations of muscles, the facial muscular contraction will change accordingly and results in pulling the skin in the desired direction for a lifting effect. Botulinum toxin can tighten the lower face by relaxing the depressor platysma muscle, lift the lower jaw, and thereby creating the V-line face contour.
◎ Facial Contouring Injection with Hyaluronic Acid:
The injected hyaluronic acid molecules will group with the hyaluronic acid molecules that already naturally exist in our body to plump up the skin. Hyaluronic acid is commonly used in facial contouring. The hyaluronic acid used in facial contouring treatment can plump up the hollow areas such as the temple or cheek, and, more importantly, the periosteum of the lower jawbone to improve the facial profile.
When the skin laxity begins and the lower jawbones become less dense, the face will start to appear older as the loss of its volume and support. The undefined jawline and sagging skin hanging around the jaw will take away your sharp facial profile.
The facial contouring treatment can offer an instant facial contouring effect by injecting hyaluronic acid at multiple locations. The injection can reshape a smooth and sharp lower jawline, creating a young and well-defined side facial profile.
◎ Their differences:
Facial contouring injection with botulinum toxin is suitable for the lower face contouring, which is the area below the corners of your mouths or ear lobes. Facial contouring injection with hyaluronic acid is suitable for a wider area. In addition to the lower jawline contouring, it can be applied to the middle to upper face contouring, helping to plump up the hollow areas.
Individuals can receive both injection treatments based on their actual conditions and desired results for a slimmer look. Attend a consultation with the practitioner to discuss your personal facial contouring plan.
Facial contouring injection will tighten the lower jaw and give you defined lower jaw lines and side profile. On the other hand, people suffering from skin laxity due to the contraction of platysma can receive the treatment to relax their platysma and depressor anguli oris (mouth corners), restoring a lifted lower jaw.
Once the defined jawlines appear, it gives the appearance of a slimmer face and tightened skin. The injection treatments not only help to restore a smaller face, but also slow down the formation of sagging skin, maintaining a youthful and elegant look!
