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.
