Jawline fillers

The jawline is one of the most striking features of the face. A sagging jawline can be a sign of ageing and an under-formed or weak jawline as a genetic pre-disposition can severely affect someone’s confidence. Having a defined, strong jawline can lift the facial features and offer the appearance of attractive youth and facial vitality.

Treating an under-defined or sagging jawline historically would mean invasive surgery such as liposuction or a face-lift. Fortunately, now aesthetic medicine can offer a non-surgical solution to this issue.

At Dr. MediSpa in Loughton, Essex and Harley Street, London, Dr. Munir Somji offers injectable dermal fillers as a procedure to re-structure and define the jawline, lifting the facial features and giving a youthful and attractive appearance.

Frequently asked questions about Jawline Fillers

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances used to sculpt, plump and volumize weak and sagging areas of the face, such as the cheeks, temples, chin, nose and of course, the jawline. Made from a naturally occurring substance within the body called Hyaluronic Acid (HA), dermal fillers mimic and replace the natural HA that is lost over time and when contained in a viscous gel matrix, can be used as a ‘scaffold’ to support sagging and loose skin. When injected in to the jawline, dermal fillers act to lift, sculpt and re-structure areas of weakness and have both an immediate and long-term effect on the hydration, tone and texture of the skin.

How do I know if I am suitable for dermal fillers for the jawline?

Before any treatment can commence, Dr. Somji will ask you to attend a no obligation consultation to assess your unique concerns, expected results and to ensure you are medically and emotionally fit and well for treatment. After this consultation, you will be invited back to the clinic for your dermal filler procedure

What happens during the treatment?

To ensure your comfort throughout your jawline filler treatment, a small amount of topical numbing cream will be applied to the area of injection. As most HA dermal fillers now contain Lidocaine, an anaesthetic which numbs at the point of injection, you will feel very little discomfort. Dr. Somji will then use a cannula, which is a blunt needle used for larger areas and to avoid bruising, to inject the filler along the jawline and will mould this in to place to ensure a pleasing and natural result.

Do jawline fillers hurt?

As dermal fillers contain Lidocaine, you should not feel any pain during this treatment. However, you may experience a little tugging and pulling which is completely normal. This sensation can be a little strange, but not uncomfortable. If you are extremely sensitive, Dr. Somji may decide to inject an anaesthetic beforehand so that you are completely numb.

What happens after treatment?

Following your dermal filler treatment, you may experience some slight swelling and bruising and this can be expected. Using some ice topically and avoiding caffeine, alcohol and hot baths, saunas or steam rooms can help to minimise any bruising. You’ll be able to cover the area with medical or mineral makeup 24 hours after treatment.

When will I see the results of dermal fillers for the jawline?

Results can be seen both immediately and improve over time. As the dermal filler is contained in a viscous gel, this acts as a plumping cushion, supporting the facial tissues and creating a lifting effect. As HA holds up to 1000 times its own weight in water, it’s a superb hydrator and you’ll see your skin tone and texture improve in the weeks that follow your treatment.

How long do results last?

Everyone is different and longevity of results depend on your individual response to the treatment as well as your lifestyle choices. If you are a sun worshipper, excessive gym goer, lose and gain weight quickly or you are a smoker, your skin may not be as healthy as someone who uses SPF, obtains from over-exercising and rapid weight loss or gain and doesn’t smoke. However, expect the results to last from 4 months to a year. Dr. Somji will explain your expected results and length of effectiveness in your pre-treatment consultation. Dr. Somji can also give you options for longer lasting solutions such as filler with greater longevity and fat transfer.

The use of dermal fillers in the jawline is proving a popular and effective treatment for those seeking more definition and tightness in this area and at Dr. MediSpa, we have one of the leading authorities in aesthetic medicine on hand to deliver superb results that will leave you looking and feeling amazing.
