If you’ve been interested in having a chiseled jawline for a while, you’ve probably come across several articles and blogs that will tell you “how to achieve your strongest jawline” with a jawline filler.
However, a lot of health magazines fail to uncover the science behind ageing jawlines. Here at Dr Scott Allison’s clinic we make sure that you are well informed before making any decisions about your body health. So, let’s start with our expert insights into all things jowl!
Why do i have a saggy jawline?
Ageing jawlines or “jowls” as they’re commonly called in the medical field, have many contributing factors. The most primary cause for jowls, is the loss of bone and structure as we age causing saggy fat pads in the skin.
Collagen is a hard, insoluble protein produced in the body that scaffolds and gives your face structure. As the years go by and you begin to reminisce over the photos from your youth, you’ll begin to notice that the skin on your face begins to lose structure. This is completely normal with the natural reduction of collagen production in your body.
By using dermal fillers, we restore lost volume in the face to improve the overall appearance of your jawline.
Jawline fillers – what is the procedure?
The procedure is non-surgical and involves the injection of hyaluronic acid. Although hyaluronic sounds like something a crazy scientist would use for his experiments, it’s however, a naturally occurring sugar molecule that helps to bind water to collagen so your skin can appear plumper, dewier, and more hydrated.
The procedure is fairly simple, most patients don’t require a numbing agent. One to four injectables are needed and are placed directly into the jawline. The new defined shape is immediate.
Choosing the shape of the jawline
Jawline Fillers are used by both men and women. After a consultation, we implement a plan that works with your desired look.
If you’re looking to have a more angled jawline, we can use fillers to accomplish this.
Many women choose fillers to give their face an ‘oval’ or softer appearance. We can use jawline fillers to add volume to create a more even balanced appearance.
How long do jawline fillers last?
Jawline enhancements can make the biggest difference to the contour of your face. These fillers last for 6 to 12 months, sometimes even longer, depending on your body.
What to expect with aftercare of jawline fillers
Some bruising and swelling is to be expected with Jawline Fillers. This is usually minor and settles within a few days. We generally recommend no exercise for 24 hours and to stay away from makeup as long as you can. Using an ice pack would help to ease the bruising or swelling.
