Masseter / Facial Slimming

The presence of square jaw is due to the presence of chewing muscle (masseter) hypertrophy. Botulinum toxin can be used to reduce the muscle bulk of this powerful muscle but the result is not sustainable, and can normally last around 4-6 months subjected to individual response.


  • Botulinum Toxin Injection

    Botulinum Toxin Injection

    Our expression lines are resulted from facial expressive muscle contraction stimulated by our neurotransmitter Acetylcholine (Ach). Botulinum toxin (BTx) is purified protein which can effectively reduce the excessive muscle contraction via competing with Acetlycholine for the receptive binding sites on muscle plates and hence reduce our expression lines. Furthermore, we can also delay the formation of static lines on face at later age through reducing excessive facial muscle contraction.

    The certified available botulinum toxins in HK are BOTOX from USA, Dysport from UK and Xeomin from Germany. However, those with neuromuscular diseases, pregnant or lactating mother are not advised for botulinum toxin injection. It is important to seek medical advice before deciding on the treatment. It will start effect about 3 - 7 days after injection, and the result can last about 4 - 6 months, variation subjected to individual patients.

    Botulinum toxin has been widely used clinically nowadays mainly at the following:

    Face: Reduce expression lines, namely frown lines, crows feet, forehead lines, bunny lines and etc.

    Calf sculpture: Reduce the muscle bulk of gastrocnemius, it can help reshaping the contour of calf muscle..

    Square face: This is resulted from the muscle bulk of masseter muscle (main chewing muscle of face), botulinum toxin can reduce the muscle bulk and hence reshape the facial contouring.

  • HIFU for Face

    HIFU for Face

    Superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) is a muscular layer about 4.5mm underneath the skin, it is important in holding the face in youthful state. However, this layer will get weakened with time and aging process leads to falling and sagging to mid face, resulting deepening nasolabial folds and marionette lines. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound can effectively deliver high ultrasound energy to SMAS layer to form discrete coagulative points which initiates dermal rejuvenation mechanism by laying down new collagen. With the production of new collagen, it leads to effective skin tightening and improve facial contour and the sagginess of mid-face.

  • Polydioxanone Thread for Eye, Nose and Face

    Polydioxanone Thread for Eye, Nose and Face

    PDO, Polydioxanone, has been used as a suture material in surgeries for over 30-40 years, it will dissolve gradually in vitro and has been CE approved.

    What PDO does in vitro to achieve its tightening and lifting effect?

    • Stimulate micro-circulation

    • Improve tissue metabolism

    • Neocolleganesis

    • Creating a supporting frame in subdermal area

    • Stimulate the sagging muscle and hence to refine the facial contouring.

    5 advantages of PDO threadings:

    • Immediate effect

    • Minimal invasive approach for lifting

    • Collagen remodeling

    • Skin tightening effect

    • Lasting effect for 12-18 months

    N-Cog Y-Ko (Nose) for reshaping the nasal contour

    • Create a bony like support when reshaping the nasal bridge

    • Create a perfect lifting angle for nose tip and nasal contouring

    • Lasting effect

    Derma Spring (EYE):

    • Specifically designed for peri-orbital delicate area

    • Tightening lower eye and tear-trough area

    • Improve dark circle, tear trough sunkenness and lighten crow’s feet.

  • Silhouette Soft PLLA Thread Lifting

    Silhouette Soft PLLA Thread Lifting

    Aging face is resulted from shifting of fat pad, muscle weakening and gradual loss of good collagen, all these will cause the face look sagging, wrinkling and drooping. Silhouette Soft Thread Lifting is a minimally invasive procedure with both FDA and CE approval for facial contouring and lifting threads. PLLA is the main ingredient of Silhouette Soft and it has a unique design with PLLA cones appearing along the thread, these cones can specially improve the anchoring effect and its bi-directional is unique amongst other threads so as to be more specific in vector pulling effect. As a result, the lifting and holding effect can be strengthened. Moreover, PLLA has a property of boosting collagen in skin. Therefore, Silhouette Soft does produce a dual effect with both lifting and volumizaton. Silhouette Soft has been designed to contact 8, 12 and 16 PLLA cones, and selection of respective number of cones is subjected to individual need. It has no doubt provided a choice of minimally invasive, minor downtime, fast recovery, natural and longer lasting facial contouring treatment for appropriately selected candidates.
