Why A V-Shape Face is Desirable in 2023


No artwork is complete without adding shapes to give it composition and balance. Similarly, your natural allure is best complemented by the right facial shape. And when it comes to Asian beauty standards, the V-shape facial shape holds utmost supremacy.

Many people deem the non-surgical V-shape face the perfect shape because it promotes balance and proportionality. With this, you can pull off almost any haircut, hairstyle, and makeup look without a fuss. But as life would have it, not all of us are born with this much-coveted shape, and hence the need for V-shape face treatments in Singapore

Today, we cover all the reasons why a V-shape face is all the rage right now. 

A V-shaped face denotes a slim face with a narrow jawline, broad cheekbones, and a sharp chin and is regarded as the most desirable face shape because it symbolises beauty and elegance in Asian culture. But more than that, here are other reasons why many women covet this unique face shape:

Facial proportions

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but there are actually scientific calculations that denote an irresistible charm. The Golden Ratio, inspired by Phidas’ mathematical symmetry, indicates beauty by measuring the distance of your facial features. While this ratio isn’t exclusive to a specific face shape, the V-shape face promotes the best symmetry among all. The more symmetrical and proportional your face is, the more attractive you look. Moreover, a V-shape face means having your natural face shape do the work for you. No need to spend so much time contouring anymore; your defined cheekbones need no more highlighting. Plus, almost all hairstyles look good with a non-surgical V-shape face. You can go for a shoulder-length or a short haircut that curves towards your jawline to accentuate them. You’ll also look great with your hair pulled back – it’s effortlessly a good hair day all the time! However, avoid hairstyles that fall forward into your face, as these throw off your nearly perfect balance.


Those with a V-shape face look more youthful because of their slim facial structure. The tight jawline and prominent cheekbones exude a younger aura because it contradicts the sagging skin that comes with ageing. Over time, your facial muscles weaken and lose their flexibility, and the skin loses its collagen. Add in the inevitable pull of gravity, and your skin and jawline turn into a loose, saggy dilemma. 


Confidence is the best accessory anyone can wear – it complements any outfit and makes you look ten times better. Since V-shape faces are desired by many, having it can contribute to a positive body image and higher self-esteem. The irresistible proportion and effortlessly complementing hairstyle can improve your poise and make you look your best. And when we know that we look good, we feel even better. Your walk becomes a strut, your smile becomes a beam, and your heart feels much lighter. Everything is way better when you’re confident in yourself, don’t you agree?

How to achieve a V-shaped face

Cosmetic treatments

Clinics that offer V-shape face treatments here in Singapore give you the desirable facial features as if you were born with them.  These treatments include facial fillers, V-shape laser, thread lifts and other non-surgical options. Before you choose the one most relevant to your condition, make sure to speak to a doctor first. 

The right cosmetic treatment for a V- shaped face, should be a decision you make with a medical professional who can tally your expectations with the results. Doctors are also well versed on up to date technology and treatments available for different types of skin-effects, so they are maybe able to advise a combination of therapies or a variation of the traditional treatments to get you the enhanced look you are after. 

Lifestyle changes

If you want to get a V-shape face without surgery here in Singapore, you can do so by improving your lifestyle. Losing weight helps shed excess fat around your face and neck, which can accentuate your jaw and cheekbones. 

Follow the 70-30 rule: 70% of your efforts go into your diet, while the remaining 30% goes to your workout. Cut down on refined carbs and empty calories that will only make you hungrier. Instead, switch to foods rich in fibre and protein, which improves digestion and helps you stay full for longer. 

Add cardio training to your workout routine since this is the fastest way to burn body fat. Boxing, jogging, running, biking, and walking are all examples of cardio which you can easily squeeze into your daily activities. 

V Shape treatments with SW1

As discussed previously in this article, the most suitable V shape treatment is the one that your doctor can recommend. This may be just one technology or a healthy mix of different treatments that complement each other. Some of the V Shape treatments available at SW1 that you can discuss with your doctor, are: 

  • Face fillers: This is the most common non-surgical V-shape face treatment Singapore clinics offer to achieve a V-shape face. It involves injecting dermal fillers to sculpt the jawline and chin and add volume to sagging areas.
  • Anti-Wrinkle injections: Botox and other anti-wrinkle injections are often used to relax the muscles in the jawline to treat migraine and teeth grinding. Doctors also use it to relax your chin muscles and design that v shape.
  • Ultherapy: The popular ultrasound therapy, Ultherapy is a non-invasive v shape treatment which also comes FDA -approved. Loved for its skin lifting, long lasting results, it can contract saggy and loose skin(aka double chins) and consequently stimulate collagen production
  • Thread lifts: Thread lifts use barbed threads to improve contour and reposition skin tissue without surgery. Don’t worry, these threads dissolve over time and stimulate collagen production leaving you with a V-shape and a plumper, lifted and youthful appearance.
