    Jab and relax for a slimmer-looking jaw

    FILLER injections are a minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment option used to diminish the look of wrinkles and pitted scars on the skin.

    Fillers can be used to augment the size of various facial parts including the nose, chin, cheeks and forehead, as well as to fill under-eye depressions and laugh lines.

    Then there's botulinum toxin, which is generally used to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, and around the eyes and mouth.

    A lesser-known fact is that botulinum toxin can make the jaw appear slimmer: It works by relaxing the jaw muscles and causing them to shrink over time, due to reduced muscle action.

    Interested parties can try Astique's Tru-V Face Contouring Package.

    It combines botulinum toxin jaw slimming and chin fillers. This combination of treatments helps reduce the appearance of a square jaw and aims to help achieve a dainty and distinctive V-shaped face.

    Both procedures are quick with minimal pain: The results last from four to six months for botulinum toxin, while fillers can last up to a year or more.

    Astique, The Aesthetic Clinic, is a boutique aesthetic clinic located in the heart of Orchard Road.

    Besides botulinum toxin and fillers, other treatments available at the clinic include laser skin treatments, pimple treatment, non-surgical face-lifts, targeted slimming and skincare products for both women and men.

    All procedures are performed by qualified doctors.

    The nett price for the botulinum toxin jaw slimming and chin fillers is $1,119.
