Botox Facial Slimming is an off-label use of Botox (just as the forehead is off label but is done commonly). This step takes just 1 injection (20-60u) on each side of the cheek. Typical cases see facial slimming in less than 2 weeks with results lasting up to 6 months.
Hanging cheek fat is also known as buccal fat. Due to time and gravity, the fat in the cheek gets pulled down to the corners of the mouth, creating a sad and tired look. Kybella injections can be used off-label to address this area. Treatment for this area generally takes 2 to 3 sessions a few weeks apart with results fully present within 4 weeks.
Kybella is an FDA approved on-label treatment for double chins. Once the fat is gone from the chin, you may consider tightening treatments as well.

Although each person is unique, certain facial features are more common to some ethnicities than others. For example, Europeans tend to have more projected features than their Asian counterparts. V-Line 3D contouring is a 3-step process that requires strategic injections of fillers (such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane and Sculptra) in three different areas to make the face more contoured.
Our V-Line 3D contouring treatment is customized for each person’s unique facial features. Thus, you may need a combination of all three steps for best results.
