3 Non-Surgical Ways to Get a V Shape Face
Whether it’s V shape face treatments in Singapore or over-the-counter products that offer the same solution, the mission to achieve a well-defined face is serious business in Asia.
In recent years, the V-shaped face has become a much sought-after beauty phenomenon internationally. However, in Asia, this preference for a V-shaped face is largely cultural and historical. The V-shaped face is considered to be an ideal of beauty in many Asian cultures and is often the go-to standard for casting actors in films, screenplays, K-pop and other forms of art and entertainment.
What is a V-shaped face, you ask? If you are new to the concept, a V-shaped face refers to a face that is narrow at the jawline, giving the whole face a triangular shape. As with rare beauty, not everyone is blessed with this shape. And as we grow older, loss of collagen and elastin, and gravity in general lead to the unappealing double-chin and thereby lack of a v shape.
So, if like thousands of other women and men, you are curious about v shape face treatments in Singapore, keep reading. We’ve listed the easily accessible routes to achieving a slimmer jawline – from home hacks to those developed by doctors, these are 3 non-surgical v shape face treatments to try in Singapore.
#1 Non-Surgical V Shape Face Treatment: Face Massage and Other DIY Hacks
There’s something cathartic about face massage videos on TikTok! While beauty enthusiasts swear by the technique, using face massage to achieve a V-shaped face, remains a long-term if not tall order. However, there is no harm in trying your hand at rollers and gua-sha tools. If anything, these will help settle any inflammation on the face, and also release water retention that maybe the cause for bloating.
Exercising your jaw and neck muscles can also help to improve the appearance of your jawline. Facial exercises like extreme smiling and frowning will tone the muscles in your face and jaw, making them stronger and more defined. You can also consider neck exercises to tone your neck muscles and reduce the appearance of a double chin. However, take it all with a pinch of salt! When it comes to exercises and face massages, you will need to keep at it for a while before seeing any ‘real’ results.

#2 Anti Wrinkle Injections and Fillers
Anti Wrinkle Injections such as botulinum toxin are used to relax the muscles in the face and jawline, which can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Not only that but they are also used to treat migraines, teeth grinding and other medical issues, so there’s no surprise that it is one of the doctor’s choice for non-invasive V-shape treatment in Singapore.
By relaxing the muscles in the jawline, it helps to create a more defined and structured look, improving the overall appearance of the V-shaped face. Keep in mind they will only temporarily relax your muscles, so you will need to keep going back for top-ups to maintain your look.
Another option to consider is Chin fillers. Fillers are a popular non-invasive V-shape treatment that adds volume to specific areas of the face, thereby re-shaping the chin. When used to create a V-shaped face, fillers can add volume to the cheekbones, temples, and jawline. This volume allows your doctor to add more definition and structure to the face, giving it the converted V-shape. Additionally, fillers are also used to fill in wrinkles, and sallowness, which helps deliver a more youthful look to your appearance.
#3 V Shape Face Treatment: Ultherapy
Not reserved just for your body, Ultrasound therapies can also be used to achieve a slimmer face. This non-invasive V-shape treatment is an FDA-approved ultrasound skin-lifting technique that works many layers below the surface of your skin. Patients love it for the long-lasting tightening it delivers, along with the visible lift and contour. Ultherapy contracts saggy and loose skin and stimulates collagen production. This allows sagging skin along the jawline to be tightened and lifted, resulting in that V-shaped face. Often described as a non-surgical facelift, Ultherapy can take years off your face, leaving behind a contoured, refreshed and younger-looking you.
Which non-invasive V shape treatment in Singapore should you consider?
Whether you need a v shaped face is entirely a personal call! Some prefer it for a slimmer appearance, whilst others feel the need due to ageing and sagging as the years catch up. Luckily for us, the world of science and technology has opened up plenty of options to achieve a V-shaped chin, without going under the knife. However, knowing which treatment is best suited to you and your face should be a decision made along with your medical practitioner. We recommend booking an appointment and taking along a list of questions for your aesthetic doctor. Once they have an idea of expectations and can map out your current stage of ageing, you will find several options on the table – each designed to help achieve that v shape of your dreams, non-surgically!
