Want a Tighter Jawline à La the K-Pop Stars?

Astique Clinic | 18 Apr 2017

V-shaped or V-line face was coined by none other than the Koreans, who see V-shaped faces with slim jawlines as a symbol of youth and beauty.

Many Kpop stars are known for their small faces and tight jawlines, which has resulted in many Koreans and foreigners alike trying ways and means to achieve that coveted look. Jowls, which are the results of skin aging and sagging, tends to make one’s face appear more rounded or squarish. This look is not desired, and more often than not, seen as a form of aging.

There are various ways that we can achieve a tighter jawline à la the K-Pop stars. From doing facial massages and using lifting creams daily, to more extreme methods like plastic surgery. However, if you are looking for something that is more effective yet non-invasive, look no further than High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU).

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for skin tightening

HIFU helps to lift and tighten skin around the jaw area without any injections or surgery. The energy can penetrate the skin's deeper layers for maximum lifting effect without affecting your skin surface, and is safe to be used around our eyes, face, neck, and also our jawline to get rid of crow’s feet, droopy eyelids, jowls, or sagging skin.

For busy urbanites like ourselves, we always try to avoid treatments that require a period of downtime because most of us just can’t afford the time. The good news for us is that HIFU is a non-invasive procedure and has no downtime.

HIFU uses ultrasound energy to target the connective tissues under our skin to stimulates cells to produce collagen, which helps in tissue rejuvenation. The effect of skin lifting and tightening will take place over 3 to 4 months and the collagen regeneration will continue up to 6 months after the initial treatment, and we can look forward to having a firmer and tighter skin after that.
