Jawline Contouring with Fillers
A well-defined jawline can give you an edge with others. This is because people with such a feature are perceived to be good, strong, intelligent and confident, among other positive attributes. Some people are born with strong, well-defined jawlines, but not everyone. Also, time can weaken the look of your jawline as cheeks begin to hang and make it look less defined. Jowls may develop, giving your face an aged, saggy look. If your jawline leaves something to be desired, dermal fillers can make a difference for you.
Contouring your jawline with fillers is a fast and cost-effective way to get immediate and long-lasting results. An enhanced jawline adds definition to your face, improves the balance and adds symmetry to your facial features. It can also reduce the appearance of jowls. With this procedure, you will have a younger, more refined look without undergoing surgery.
Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring
In the past, surgery was necessary if an individual wanted to change the look of the jawline. While it is still available for those seeking a permanent change, today you have options. Dermal fillers provide immediate change without surgery and little if any downtime.
A topical anesthetic is used to minimize discomfort from the injections. The dermal filler is then strategically injected in predetermined areas around the jaw using fine needles. Typically, the entire procedure lasts no more than 20 minutes. After your treatment, you can resume normal activities. Strenuous activities should be avoided for 24 hours.
Side effects from dermal fillers are usually mild and include slight swelling at injection sites, tenderness and possible redness. These symptoms usually disappear after a few days. You will immediately notice the changes in your jawline and as the swelling decreases, improvement will continue. Results from jawline contouring with a dermal filler will typically last up to two years. Maintenance of these results can be achieved by having periodic follow-up treatments.
