WHAT IS FACE SLIMMING?
Face slimming and neck tightening are noninvasive dermatology procedures developed in Eastern Asia that have become immensely popular in the last 5 years. Given its high clinical effectiveness, little downtime, and long lasting results, we decided this treatment was a must-have in America also.
Sagging or bulky cheeks can produce an aged, heavy, or even overweight appearance. By using a combination of methods, we are able to slim the cheeks, tighten the chin, and define the jawline to achieve a more V-shaped facial contour. These techniques can also be used for neck tightening at SLK Clinic.
This is a popular option for anyone concerned with “chubby cheeks,” or for individuals who desire a contoured appearance without having to use makeup.

WHAT MAKES SLK DIFFERENT?
At SLK we believe filler is as much an art as it is a medical procedure.
The technique of filler injection was invented and mastered in Europe, and perfected in Asia. The latest advancements in filler techniques continue to be pioneered overseas, and all SLK nurses and nurse practitioners are trained in the most advanced filler techniques from around the globe; such as specialized cheek filler, lip filler and under eye filler techniques.
All of our injectors are both naturally artistic and experts on facial anatomy and its 3-dimensional structure. Depending on the individual, we may use a custom combination of fillers, including Juvederm, Belotero, Restylane and Radiesse.
The SLK team are filler artists, gently smoothing, lifting and plumping the skin in any of the following areas:
WHICH TYPE OF FILLER IS BEST?
We carefully select our fillers based on their safety profiles and how they morph and flow in response to a force that is applied to them, for example, how they stretch, mold, and travel in the tissue. Fillers we use include:
- Juvederm Ultra
- Juvederm Ultra Plus
- Volite injectable moisturizer
- Radiesse and Radiesse +
- Belotero and Belotero +
Layering the above fillers with PRP (platelet-rich plasma).
We utilize injection techniques that keep bruising and swelling to an absolute minimum. We will also teach you all of our secrets on how to prevent the body from swelling or bruising once you go home. Please inform us early on what medications or supplements you are taking because certain medications need to be stopped 2 weeks before your appointment.
