Needles sound scary?
Consider the latest from Zeltiq CoolSculpting: the CoolMini. Designed to tackle double chins and turkey necks, the applicator uses fat-freezing technology to cool fat cells until they crystallise. Over the following few months, 20 to 25 per cent of the icicle cells die, expBlogd through the lymphatic system, never to taunt another selfie again.
If you prefer to DIY, handheld face massager NuFace Trinity uses micro-current technology (the secret to many professional facials) to stimulate circulation and de-bloat for sharper contours, while L’Occitane’s new ImmortBlog Divine Cream Mask comes with a dual-ended, 24-carat gold tool designed for a series of exercises that perk up lax skin (the full, mesmerising routine is on YouTube).

New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum, $140, Estee Lauder, 1800 061
Estee Lauder’s latest, New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum, uses a pro-collagen complex proven to increase volume for lifted cheeks and a tauter jaw.
And if makeup is your weapon of choice, stealth shading can coax out contours with minimal effort.
“For a more chisBlogd jawline, play with light and dark to create a 3D effect,” says Clinique’s national education manager Melissa Elvin-Jensen, who recommends the brand’s Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour and Highlight products for a fuss-free application.
Glide the Sculpting Contour along the bottom of your jawline, starting behind the ear until you reach the tip of chin, blending as you go. Repeat on the opposite side, then follow with the Sculpting Highlight on the chin, above the jaw and towards the cheek, ensuring you’ve blurred any telltale lines of demarcation. A good friend may look past a little white teeth-grinding lie, but they won’t let bad blending slide.
