You don’t need to undergo surgery to come closer to the facial shape and contours that you find appealing. New Image Cosmetic’s laser and skin medical spa provides many non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Whether you want your face shape to more closely resemble the traits considered attractive by people of your ethnicity or culture, or would like to reshape parts of your face and body without the risks associated with surgery, we can help.
In a general sense, Asians, like all races of people, are born with distinctive facial characteristics. Compared to Caucasians, the Asian face is often wide, sometimes appearing round, and when viewed from the profile, appears more flat.
Over the years, what is thought of as ideal Asian facial proportions has changed. Currently, the trend is toward narrowing the lower half of the face; creating a more V-line jaw and a narrower, more pointed chin (resulting in a heart-shaped face); building up the nose bridge and nose tip; and, balancing the thickness of the lips – often a thinner top lip with a well-defined cupid’s bow.
New Image Cosmetic provides several treatments that can help bring you closer to that heart-shaped or V-line facial shape you desire.
Dramatic results can be achieved without surgery. Facial fillers like Juvederm ®, can be used to augment the nose tip and nose bridge, and neuromodulators can relax the jaw muscles, effectively narrowing its contours.
The flat Asian nose shape is a result of a low nose bridge and a wide base. While standards of beauty change, the current ideal for some Asian women and men is to achieve a slightly more westernized appearance. The boom in cosmetic surgery for Asian people, both men and women, is a testament to the influence that cultural shifts in the perception of beauty can have.
If you are Asian and have considered cosmetic surgery for your nose, but you are concerned about the risks, you may want to consider a non-surgical, non-permanent, quick, and relatively painless alternative to Asian rhinoplasty (nose shaping) that can be achieved with facial fillers. Consider instead Nose Bridge Nose Tip Augmentation with Juvederm ®.
Asian people are prone to many conditions that darken skin tone in patches or spots – a condition known as hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation includes Melasma, freckles, sun spots or age spots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation caused by skin injury or conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. While staying out of direct sunlight and using a high SPF sunblock may help, because Asian skin has more melanin than Caucasian skin, hyperpigmentation is nearly a fact for many Asians, and may become more noticeable with age.
New Image Cosmetic offers several effective treatments for improving pigmentation conditions, including:
IPL (intense pulsed light) – sometimes referred to as IPL Photofacial.
Co2 and Sublative Laser – an effective treatment for Melasma and deeper pigmentation issues, acne scarring, fine lines and pore reduction
Skin lightening skin care such as Zo Skin Health by Dr. Zien Obagi, who has developed a wide spectrum of therapeutic treatments for everyone regardless on skin condition, age, gender, or ethnicity. Based on the latest advances in skin therapy technology – biotechnology complexes, plant stem cell components, and multi-therapy delivery systems – these products and programs have been optimized for your specific needs.
