Do you feel like your face looks a little more round than you would like? It's not uncommon. You're not the only one. As we age, weight gain and sagging skin can make our faces appear fuller and plumper. There are many face slimming treatments that can improve your facial contours and reduce your appearance.

Why does skin sag over time?

Elastin is a protein that helps skin snap back into shape after it has been stretched. As we age, our skin loses this protein. As we age, we are more likely to have sagging and wrinkles. The loss of collagen can also lead to wrinkles and decreased skin volume. These changes are caused by the natural aging process of collagen breaking down over time. Environmental factors like sun exposure can accelerate this process.

Why choose non-surgical procedures?

Non-surgical Face Slimming Procedures are fast, inexpensive, simple, and require little downtime. They deliver great results, that's the most important thing! You will notice a more toned appearance to your face, slimmer skin, and possible improvement in wrinkles.

How Can It Be Treated?

For those who don’t have the time or money to undergo general anesthesia for invasive surgery, non-surgical procedures can be used to improve facial contours.

What Non-Surgical Treatments are Best for a Contoured Facial?

Non-surgical facial contouring is best done in consultation with a qualified professional. This will help you to decide which treatment options are most suitable for you. Two types of non-surgical facial contouring treatments are available:

Dermal Fillers

This treatment increases the volume of the face by injecting hyaluronic (HA) fillers in specific areas such as under the eyes and cheekbones to increase volume and reduce wrinkles.

Jaw-Slimming BTX Treatments

Botulinum Toxin (BTX), a new treatment, is used to contour and smoothen your face. It injects botulinum toxin (BTX), into both the jaw muscles of the face. These muscles are no longer able to contract as much, which results in a decrease in their size. This allows the face to appear tighter and lifted.

Thermage

The radiofrequency (RF), the device heats the skin to tighten it and stimulate collagen production. This reduces lines and wrinkles, giving you a more youthful appearance.

HIFU

The treatment uses ultrasound energy to heat the skin's deep dermis and SMAS layers to tighten them. This non-invasive treatment is powerful and can be used to reduce facial fat, sagging cheeks, and double chin.

The skin is not damaged by the focused beam, which penetrates the skin without causing any harm.

Patients will see results in a few months. Depending on the treatment area and individual goals, maintenance treatments may be required every 6-12 moist.

What is best for me?

Your unique needs, goals, and skin type will determine the best non-surgical treatment for you. You should choose a professional who will discuss all options with you and give you advice about how often to do them. It is important to have realistic expectations and to find something that fits within your budget.
