Many women wish their face was just that little bit narrower. Until recently, only jaw surgery was available to solve the problem, but it came with a long recovery period. At Envy, a new noninvasive treatment without scalpel is available and it’s called V-Shape.
When material is applied into the chewing muscle, atrophy is the natural result. This results in a narrower face with more prominent cheekbones — that’s why it’s called V-Shape. In practice, this means the muscle is weaker, it’s volume changes and the result is a longterm change in the shape of your jaw. It’s narrower and so is your face, which becomes more heart-shaped.
If your face is unnaturally wide and dominated by a genetically prominent chewing muscle, we’re here for you. If you suffer from bruxism, that is gnashing of teeth, you may not only damage them. Your chewing muscle is usually also larger and the features of your face are unnaturally rough. And if you think your face is just too round, the treatment is ideal for you, too.
A certain amount of material is applied into your chewing muscle using a thin needle. A week after the application, the chewing muscle softens. After a further 6 weeks the features soften and the face becomes narrower. In case of a single treatment, the results are temporary. If you’re looking for a more durable change, you need to undergo 2 to 3 treatments every 2 to 4 months. The treatment is completely painless.
No bruises appear after the treatment and the client feels no pain. In the immediate aftermath of the treatment, you need to avoid chewing sweets, harder meat products and sepia fish. Other than that, the muscle remains as functional as ever.
Nerve and muscle diseases, such as myasthensia gravis or Lambert-Eaton Syndrome. The treatment is not recommended if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding and also if you’re suffering from any kind of acute tooth infection.
