A defined jawline is one of the key features of a youthful face. Having a weak chin or underdeveloped jaw can give the appearance of disproportion to the lower face and can even age one’s looks. After all, the jawline is the scaffold which holds the skin and tissues of the lower face taught and in place. If this support system is not functioning as it should, the cheeks can sag, skin can appear loose and jowls can form. Using a precise and mathematical technique, Dr. Munir Somji can reshape and contour a weak jawline to enhance this feature using injectable dermal fillers here at Dr. MediSpa in Loughton.
Dermal fillers have long been recognised as substances which, when injected in to specific areas of the face can enhance volume and restore areas which have lost their structure or are not in proportion with the rest of the facial features. Most dermal fillers contain a substance called hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring sugar which can be found in the skin, eyes, connective tissues and joints and is responsible for hydrated, youthful looking skin.
As we age, the natural hyaluronic acid in our bodies is depleted. Injecting areas lacking in volume on the face with a synthetic formulation of hyaluronic acid within a viscous gel can instantly improve the features, providing a supportive structure for the skin and underlying tissues. As hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water it can dramatically improve skin hydration, tone and texture.
Most people with a weak or sagging jawline can benefit from dermal filler injections, but it’s important to have a consultation with us to ensure you are both fit and well for a non-surgical treatment such as this. Jawline dermal fillers are becoming more and more popular in our clinic for those not wanting to go under the knife.
Jawline dermal fillers: what can I expect from the treatment?
During the treatment, you may have some topical anaesthetic applied to your skin which will numb the area for injection. However, most dermal fillers now contain Lidocaine, an anaesthetic or ‘block’ which ensures that you feel very little discomfort during the procedure.
Depending on the area to be treated and his preferred method for your individual needs, Dr. Somji may decide to use a cannula as opposed to a traditional needle. A cannula is a blunt needle which in recent years has become extremely popular for the application of dermal fillers, as the blunt end bypasses blood vessels, minimizing the risk of bruising. You might feel slight tugging and pulling with a cannula, but this is not painful at all, just a little strange in sensation.
How long do jawline dermal fillers last?
Results vary from person to person and it’s important to take pictures before your treatment as well as after, so that you can see the immediate changes that dermal fillers can offer. Expect to see an improvement in the lower jawline shape and tightening of the skin and the chin. Over the weeks that follow, your skin will respond to the hyaluronic acid in the dermal fillers and will also start to produce collagen.
You will need to adhere to any aftercare instructions given to you after the treatment and it’s worth taking in to account that smoking, drinking too much alcohol and even over-exertion in the gym can all affect the how long the results can last. Most people who live a healthy lifestyle, eat well and take care of their skin in the sun can expect their results to last from 6 months to a year.
