Facial contouring can be an extremely gratifying treatment procedure when done properly. However, the various different treatment methods underscore the need for precise treatment, occasionally in combination.
- Lifestyle measures include trying to sleep on your back instead of your sides, as well as minimizing the drag of facial tissues when washing of face or applying skincare.
- Botox/Dysport treatments of the jaw can help make your face slimmer dramatically and with long lasting results after a few sessions. However, this treatment is not for everyone and a proper medical assessment is always recommended instead of ‘blindly’ asking for these injections from your doctor. Also, they tend to be pretty long lasting, so don’t blindly repeat it every 6 months!
- Devices such as HIFU and Lasers are a gratifying and natural way of improving sagging or enlarged facial contours, but these can take some time, so be patient.
Injectables like fillers and thread lifts can give more drastic and immediate results. However, these need to be done carefully, as there can be terrible side effects in the wrong hands.
