Jawline Definition and Contouring

The loss of jawline definition and the formation of jowls is a multifactorial age-related process. The primary reasons for jowl formation are loss of volume, gravitational changes and shrinkage of bone. The accurate diagnosis of these changes is critical to successful facial rejuvenation. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment option that can be used individually or collaboratively with Ultherapy treatment to restore volume, lift, contour, define and stimulate new collagen and elastin production.

Jawline Definition and contouring

The jawline and chin have an essential role in the overall facial shape. Jawline filler treatment can create a sharper and more defined jawline and reduce the appearance of jowls which will enhance the facial profile. Male patients may seek treatment to achieve a more chiselled, sharp and sculpted appearance of a weak jawline. Jawline slimming can also be achieved by reduction of the power of the masseter muscles using Botulinum Toxin injections, this can help to reduce the appearance of a lower square face and create a more oval appearance.

The Treatment

Dermal Fillers are an effective non-surgical way to enhance the look of the jawline and jowls. During the treatment, dermal filler is injected at several places along the jawline, supporting and lifting the jawline and correcting any minor deformities, softening shadows and creating a more youthful appearance. This process changes the contours of the area by filling in the hollows under the skin which have been caused by the reduction and loss of the fat pads and bone resorption due to the ageing process. The result is a jawline that looks more prominent and well defined, making the area look younger and rejuvenated.

The Skintalks team can create a more defined jawline without any surgery for many patients. This treatment can be used in combination with Ultherapy to further enhance the treatment outcome. During the consultation process all potential risks and side effects will be discussed in full. How long the results last are very individual to each patient, many factors such as age, skin type, lifestyle, muscle activity and the product used will influence the duration of the result. However, results are usually impressive and long lasting.

An individual treatment plan will be developed to meet your specific needs.
