Cheapest Way to Get a V-Face

Everyone wants a slimmer face.  But aside from dieting, what is the cheapest way to get a V-face?

 

Ultherapy is the latest technology using focused ultrasound to stimulate the formation of new collagen. It tightens the skin along the jawline, emphasizing the V-shape of the face.  However, technology does not come cheap.  Average cost is around P100,000 once a year depending on the area needed to be treated.

 

Thread Lift is becoming a new favorite nowadays.  The absorbable thread is inserted to lift the sagging skin to create a V-face without surgery.  It also induces collagen formation to make the skin tight with effect lasting around 9 months.   Cost depends on how many threads are inserted. A lot a budget around P20-30,000 per session.

 

Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the masseter muscle – you can feel the masseter muscle on your jawline when you bite.  Paralyzing the muscle will make it atrophy or become smaller.  The smaller the angle of the jaw, the slimmer your face will get. Botox is best done together with other procedures mentioned above, at least twice a year.  Average cost is around P15-20,000 depending on the dosage. 

 

Buccal Fat Pad Removal is still the cheapest way to get a V-face.  It removes the fat pouch inside our cheeks surgically.  Once the fat is removed, it is permanently gone.  However, the results are not instant.  Once the cheek fat is removed, you need to wait around 6 months to start noticing that your cheeks are slimming down.  Average cost is around P 30-50,000 depending on the clinic or hospital.
