Your jawline plays a major part in defining your face shape, especially with the current ‘v-shape’ trend of focusing contouring on your jaw and chin but as we grow older and start to lose skin and muscle tone this definition and clear shape start to get lost. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we use Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to correct this issue before it turns into a jowl and the sagging becomes too severe to treat without invasive surgery.
Hyaluronic acid is a compound naturally found in the skin which gives the skin volume and elasticity. We use high quality, synthetically created Hyaluronic acid which is free of animal products and biocompatible, typically market leaders Juvederm and Restylane which are both in sterile gels. These fillers are injected in small, precise amounts where it is needed across the jawline and then massaged into place. You can hold a mirror throughout the treatment so you have complete control of the result, which will last between 9 to 12 months.
Although the treatment does not require any recovery time and is non-invasive, we will still apply a numbing cream to minimize any discomfort. It is best to avoid touching your face and applying makeup as well as not using Vitamin E, St.John’s Wort, ibuprofen or aspirin. We also advise that you refrain from exercise apart from walking. There should be minimal bruising and swelling but your jaw will look younger, firmer and more defined. If you are concerned that your jawline is starting to look saggy, call us today and book your free consultation.

Dermal Fillers for a Sagging Jawline

Thread veins can appear on our legs for a variety of reasons such as poor circulation, alcohol
consumption, carrying extra weight or simply being stood up for a long time for a prolonged period
and they can look particularly prominent if you have very fair skin. Whilst there are a few things you
can do to try to prevent them from appearing, none of which are guaranteed to work, you can erase
them at the London Cosmetic Clinic with the use of IPL treatment.

Short for intense pulsed light, we use IPL treatment for various treatments at our Knightsbridge-
based clinic including skin rejuvenation and minimising skin pigmentation. The light rays from the
device create a thermal reaction in the skin which cauterises the broken capillaries that make up
thread veins. As less blood flows to these broken capillaries, they start to fade and the thread veins
disappear. Straight after your IPL session your skin may appear redder but this will quickly calm
down as your skin recovers. We recommend that you use SPF 35 or higher as your skin will be
temporarily more susceptible to UV damage.

You may need several sessions depending on the severity of your thread veins and this will be
discussed at your consultation. We also use this technique to remove other areas of redness such as
port wine stains and hyperpigmentation. To find out more about thread vein removal or any of our
other treatments, contact us today to book a consultation.
