Jawline Filler can help both men and women to create a contoured sharp jawline that frames the face to obtain a more masculine or feminine jawline, respectively.
While some people are born with a jawline they are not happy with, in most cases, the jawline appearance is affected by the ageing process, mainly in two ways.
- As the skin loses elasticity and begins to sag, the jawline starts to appear soft and lacking definition. The corners of the mouth also begin to droop, causing ‘marionette lines’ – wrinkles that extend into the jawline – and creating jowls.
- A loss of fat tissue often causes two divots to form along the jawline, known as the pre-jowl sulcus, which further accentuates the appearance of jowls.
In these cases, dermal fillers are used to fill in the lines, add volume where it has been lost, create a lifting effect, and camouflage the look of jowls with strategically placed filler. This procedure may also be combined with a skin tightening treatment.
When it comes to using jawline fillers to correct the signs of ageing, dermal fillers are useful to also help restore collagen and elastin, two substances responsible for maintaining a youthful volume and the skin’s ability to bounce back. This will result in the jawline area appearing both tighter and lifted.
Who is Jawline Filler For?
This treatment is popular in both men and women, who feel their face is too slim or too oval and want to have a more chiseled profile. Women who find that aging has caused them to lose definition and want to restore a more youthful look with an upward lift of the jowls also benefit a lot from this procedure.
Contouring a woman and man’s jaw using fillers involves creating angles and straight lines to enhance the patient’s bone structure, whereas for a woman it means creating more gentle, feminine curves.
How does Jawline Filler Work?
The application of jawline fillers is administered through a series of small injections in multiple sites along the mandible. These are typically not painful, although some people may experience mild levels of discomfort as you would with any injection or a prick to the skin. If this is the case, a numbing topical cream can be applied to help reduce sensation in the jaw.
The most common jawline fillers contain hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) and are particularly effective combined with the Nefertiti Lift and after Jawline Slimming.
Jawline Filler Results
The application of dermal fillers is used to effectively sculpt and reshape the jaw, creating balance and symmetry to frame the face. Jawline filler results are immediately visible.
Using dermal fillers to shape, define, and enhance the lower facial contours also has the added benefit of decreasing the appearance of loose skin and the appearance of a double chin (especially when combined with a chin sculpting procedure).
In men, this chiseling effect can be more dramatic. For women, depending on their desired facial shape, jawline fillers can achieve an angle that can range from soft to dramatic.
There are a few things you can do to help maintain the life of jaw filler. These include:
- avoiding UV light and protecting your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen
- moisturizing your skin regularly
- keeping your skin hydrated by drinking lots of water
- eating a healthy diet
- reducing stress
Any potential side effects will be discussed during a pre-treatment consultation.
In general, fillers are considered very safe for most people. However, as with any treatments that involve injections, patients might experience a few temporary side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, itching, and sensitivity at the point of application for a few days after the procedure.
Any swelling should subside within 48 hours and bruising can be easily concealed using makeup.
Patients should avoid exercise for twenty-four hours after the procedure to minimize swelling. After this time, it will take approximately two weeks for the results to settle. Hard chewing should be avoided during this time.
