What do some of the most stunning Hollywood celebrities have in common? Many of them were born with a perfectly chiseled jawline. Or were they?
More on that later but first a little background: Regardless of gender, a beautifully sculpted lower face is considered the universal beauty ideal. In fact, it spans thousands of years and many cultures. But why exactly do we find this facial feature so attractive? The answer lies in evolutionary biology. It turns out a slightly squared off jawline is associated with vibrant health, robust immune system and good fertility. It’s a subconscious process that’s hardwired into our brain; it’s simply what the eye is drawn to.
Back to the question at hand – did your favorite celeb win the genetic lottery? Or do they have an incredibly talented plastic surgeon or cosmetic injector? Maybe. The reality is that with today’s highly advanced techniques it’s not always easy to detect if someone’s face has been enhanced. That’s actually great news for you. It means that if you weren’t born with that perfectly chiseled jawline, or your jawline has succumbed to gravity, you can achieve an impressive augmentation with a little jawline filler.
The number one reason patients seek jawline contouring with dermal filler is to reverse the signs of aging. If you’re entering middle age and notice that your jawline is not as sharp as it used to be that’s because our face can change dramatically as we enter our forties and fifties. Natural bone, collagen and fat pads that support our skin decline over time, leading to jowls, sagging and wrinkles.
Another cosmetic reason to get jawline filler is to enhance facial features you weren’t born with to look better and feel more confident. It’s not necessarily an age-related concern but rather a personal decision to reshape your face and improve your appearance. As a matter of fact, we see patients of all ages who want to sculpt and contour their jawline. Fortunately, now we have a safe and effective non-surgical option readily available with today’s advanced dermal fillers.
At Azala Medical Aesthetics we prefer to use specialized high density hyaluronic acid (HA) to restructure and contour the jawline area. We absolutely love working with cross-linked fillers such as Juvederm ®Voluma®, Restylane® Lyft® or Restylane® Defyne®. These products offer consistently reliable performance. Additionally, they contain materials that are perfectly suited to providing lift and correcting sagging to enhance facial features. They also last longer – you can expect your results to hold up for 12 to 24 months.
Just like treating any other area, the cost will be determined by a number of factors. Are you looking to address sagging skin and age-related volume loss? If so, are there any other areas that need to be treated simultaneously to ensure optimum facial balance? If you’re a younger patient with a receding jawline or seeking augmentation for other reasons, we may recommend injecting the chin as well. Again, our goal with every patient is to always respect the subtleties of facial proportion and symmetry.
When you come in for you initial consultation our expert injector will fully assess your concerns and recommend a customized treatment plan. You’ll also have the opportunity to view jawline filler before and after photos. All treatment costs will be discussed in detail and a quote provided ahead of time. Keep in mind that if budget is a concern, your treatment can be split up over several visits. The beauty of dermal filler is that it can be done in stages and layered over time to achieve your desired results.
We encourage you to schedule a consultation with at Azala Medical Aesthetics to find out if you’re a good candidate for the jawline filler.
