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.
Is there any pain after the treatment, for example when eating? Should I change my diet?
You’ll feel no pain when eating. However, In the immediate aftermath of the treatment, you need to avoid chewing sweets, harder meat products and sepia fish.
How many units are needed to reach the desired effect?
The amount of units is set on an individual basis depending on the size of the muscle and the result you want to achieve.
Is it possible to get my original face back?
Yes and no. When we apply Vistabel into the muscle, it contracts naturally. If you follow our recommendations, you’ll achieve a long term effect. If you want your original face back, you should break all the rules. If you chew too much or chew hard objects, the muscle gains size again.
How much time do I need between 2 or 3 treatments?
We recommend having your second treatment after 2-4 months. Many clients don’t need a third treatment at all, but if you feel further corrections are necessary, a third treatment is possible.
When do I need to repeat treatment to maintain the effect?
Nothing more is usually needed after two treatments. But if you want to maintain the effect, you can undergo the treatment as often as every 6 months.
