What can jawline fillers do for you?
Published on: July 17, 2021
Dermal fillers are famous amongst cosmetic doctors and their patients alike, for improving facial contours and offering a more youthful appearance. They are so versatile that they can physically lift the skin, plump out lines, furrows and wrinkles and even re-build structural contours of the face, such as the nose, cheeks and chin.
At The London Cosmetic Clinic in Harley Street, Dr Salinda Johnson and her team offer non-surgical dermal filler injections for a whole host of facial concerns, with excellent, long-lasting results. One of the more popular treatments that have become well-known amongst our patients is dermal filler injections for the lower face, namely the jawline. We see more and more people get in touch purely because of its popularity and word-of-mouth amongst friends who have had this treatment.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are multi-viscous injectable gels that contain hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural component of healthy tissues, helping to hydrate, plump and cushion areas such as the eyes, joints, connective tissues and of course, the skin.
When we start to age, HA can deplete, making our skin dry, dehydrated and less able to produce collagen, another vital component of healthy and youthful-looking skin. As the skin degrades, it can start to sag. This action, combined with the loss of bone mass, fat, muscle tone and other tissues within the skin, can mean our appearance can start to age. Those who experience illness, rapid weight loss or gain, those who do not protect their skin against UV rays, smokers and excessive gym bunnies can experience facial ageing far sooner than those who are not in these categories.
Dermal fillers can offer significant anti-ageing benefits as well as reconstructing certain facial contours. The treatment takes minutes to perform, and results can last as long as 18 months, depending on the areas treated and the products used.
But what can jawline fillers do for you?
As dermal fillers can offer a myriad of benefits to enhance the facial structure, jawline fillers can benefit most people at some point in their lives. Dermal filler used for jawline can last up to 2 years.
In a no-obligation consultation with one of our medical practitioners, you can discuss the concerns that you have about your facial appearance. We will also check your medical history to ensure any treatment’s safety and efficacy here at the clinic. Dr Johnson will also examine your facial anatomy to advise on the very best course of action for the most natural-looking and successful result.
Jawline fillers for jowls or sagging face
Those who experience jowls from sagging/aging skin or a double chin can benefit from jawline fillers, as a more pronounced mandibular can be achieved simply by injecting along the jawline ( front and back part of jowl to stretch and lift the jowl) and offering a more sweeping statement to the contours of the jaw and reduce the double chin.
Dermal fillers for jawline contouring in women and square/ strong jawline for men
Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance the sharp contour jawline in women who don’t have defined jawline without widening face.
For men, square masculine jawline/face is desirable. Dermal filler can enhance the weak/ oval face shape to become square shape and define the jawline. Although some women prefer this square shape face as it is trendy at the moment too.
We can add fillers not only to the jawline, but lateral cheek area, to give the impression that the face is wider, thus adopting a more heart-shaped appearance. This treatment can also be enhanced further by injecting the temples. The face can suffer in this area due to the loss of fat and bone mass. Injecting dermal fillers into the temples reduces that ‘skeletal’ appearance of the temples, giving a softer look, raising the eyebrows and lifting the skin around the eye area.
Dermal fillers for a weak chin
Dermal fillers can also enhance a weak chin, create a more pronounced profile and lengthen and enhance the lower face, creating a more balanced side-on appearance. This can also have a slimming effect on the neck area, lifting the skin and forming that beautiful arc under the chin, synonymous with youth and vitality.
Combining dermal fillers with other cosmetic treatments
Dermal fillers are a superb non-surgical injectable treatment, offering significant results and in some cases, comparable to a partial or full-face surgical lifting procedure. In some cases, Dr Johnson may recommend combination treatments to you, such as anti-wrinkle injections (commonly referred to as prescription-only Botox®) or PDO threads, to complete your treatment and offer the best results.
