A strong, well-defined jawline is universally considered attractive in both men and women. Jawline fillers can add symmetry and definition to the lower face, hide double chins, jowls and better frame facial features.
Jawline sculpting offers multiple benefits. It can strengthen and define a weak jawline or soften a jawline to ultimately enhance facial features. For adults who have lost volume due to age, fillers can effectively plump the lower face to restore a more youthful appearance. As people age, it is common to lose bone density in the jaw. This affects both sexes, but is more common among women and occurs earlier due to hormonal changes that occur with menopause. For some, fat can accumulate in the chin area, resulting in a loss of definition; others may not have had a strong jawline structure to begin with. Dermal fillers are a practical and an effective choice to address your concerns, they are non-invasive and long lasting. When injected along the mandible (lower jawbone), dermal fillers can define and improve the look of the jawline. In addition to making the facial structure appear stronger, this also results in the neck appearing slimmer.
Dermal fillers are an effective and reliable method of temporarily adding definition to the jawline and reducing the appearance of sagging skin and a double chin. This can accentuate feminine features in women and produce a chiselled, strong jawline in men.
90% of the results become visible immediately after the procedure but it may take up to 4 weeks to see the full results.
Jawline filler contouring effects typically last 18–24 months and may last longer in some cases when using the newer thicker fillers. Dermal fillers are biodegradable, which means the body will gradually break them down – this means results will fade in the months following treatment.
IS THERE ANY PAIN
We use local numbing cream, ice and very small needles, resulting in a virtually pain free experience to our patients.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME
There is no downtime associated with this procedure; you can go back to your regular routine the same day.
You may experience some redness, swelling and discomfort at the injection site for a few days after the procedure. As with all dermal fillers, following some precautions can help side effects resolve more quickly and reduce the risk of complications:
- Avoid alcohol, direct sun exposure and intense physical activity for 48 hours
- Avoid unnecessarily touching the treatment area
- Apply ice packs or cold compresses to reduce swelling
- Avoid facials, saunas for 2 weeks
To minimise the risk of bruising, we advise all our clients to avoid the following for several days prior to treatment:
- Green tea
- Fish oil capsules, Vitamin E, Ginko Biloba, St John’s Wart
- Anti-inflammatory / Blood Thinning medications such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen and other NSAIDS are all blood thinning and can increase the risk of bruising/swelling after injections.
