The high sodium content is the culprit, so if you are a big fan of chips, burgers, pizza, and similar foods, you may want to consider cutting down and consulting a nutritionist to reduce salt intake from your daily diet. Processed foods should also be disposed of, because they not only cause the cheeks to puff up, but are bad for health as well.

V-Line – Face Slimming using Botox (Asian Cosmetic Surgery)


A V-shaped face is highly coveted and is considered to be one of the more desired face shapes. Originally, it was Koreans who coined the term “V-line”, which is used to denote face contouring techniques for toning facial features by eliminating puffy cheeks, double chin, etc. to structure the face in a V-shape. However, it's popularity quickly caught on with Americans and Europeans as well.

Why opt for facial contouring or face slimming?

Facial contouring or face slimming helps to impart a V-shape face with sculpted cheekbones that narrow and converge in a sharp angle towards the chin. The face becomes slimmer in profile – Many Asians opt to use a popular facial slimming treatment with Botox and fillers, which helps to sculpt the face and make you look younger, while the skin looks smoother, more refreshed and much healthier than before. The best part is it doesn’t require any surgery!

Am I an ideal candidate for Face Slimming or Shaping?

This procedure is ideal for those with:

  • A square-shaped jawline

  • An overly masculine jaw structure

  • Chubby or bloated cheeks

  • Double chin

Will my face actually become slimmer, or just look like it?

Botox (Botulinum Toxin ) helps the jaw muscles to relax, thereby stimulating a soothing sensation, while causing the chewing muscles to become thinner.  The injected Botox will block the nerve impulses of the muscles in the selected area, reducing any lines or wrinkles, while ensuring the cheekbones long sculpted and the face is “lifted”. Your overall appearance looks fresher, which imparts a youthful appearance. This method is ideal for those who don’t want to “go under the knife” with surgical procedures. V-line techniques involve a few simple injections to the selected areas, with numbing cream applied prior to treatment so you don’t feel pain or discomfort. Sophisticated equipment and the finest of needles are used for injections, thereby reducing any itching, bruising, bleeding, or redness. If you experience these issues post-treatment, talk to your doctor.

How long do the effects of facial slimming last?

The effects of face slimming are noticeable after 3 to 5 days. Your skin is smooth and supple, while the puffiness and double chin disappears. Botox is specifically targeted towards certain areas, so it doesn’t impair functionality of other facial muscles. This effect can last up to 3 to 4 months, after which few follow-up sessions are required for maintenance. However, once the facial muscles get habituated and effects last longer, these sessions can be schedules once every 6 months or so.
