Will jawline filler lift jowls?
Jawline filler has become an increasingly popular treatment in recent years. It involves injecting a dermal filler into the jawline area to enhance its appearance and create a more defined and youthful contour. But what exactly is jawline filler, how does it work, and can it lift jowls? Let’s dive into these questions and explore this treatment in more detail.
What is jawline filler?
Jawline filler is a cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler into the jawline area. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. The filler is injected under the skin in the targeted area to add volume and definition to the jawline. This can create a more chiselled and youthful appearance.
How does jawline filler work?
As we age, we may start to lose volume and definition in our jawline, which can create a less defined and sagging appearance in the lower face. Jawline filler works by adding volume to the jawline area, which can create a more defined and lifted appearance. The filler is injected into the targeted areas using a small needle or cannula, which allows for precise placement of the filler.
What are the benefits of jawline filler?
It can balance the lower face
The jawline and chin are fundamental parts of the facial structure, and making adjustments to these areas can have a significant impact on overall facial balance. When treating the jawline, it is generally approached as an aesthetic unit, meaning that the entire area is evaluated as a cohesive whole, even if only one specific area requires enhancement. These areas are also taken into account when evaluating other facial features, such as the eyes, nose, and lips.
The primary goal of jawline filler is to improve facial harmony by restoring proportion and balance with other facial features. A weak jawline can manifest in many ways, such as a small or retrusive chin, a chin that does not reach the line of lower lip projection, or weak lower jaw bone angles. Ultimately, it’s all about balance. By adding definition to the jawline, a more elegant contour can be created as it transitions into the neck. Jawline filler can also be a good option for those who have submental fullness, commonly known as a “double chin”.
They can camouflage skin laxity
While some people may have naturally smaller chins due to genetics, others may experience a reduction in chin size as they age, which can alter the shape of their face and deepen fine lines. Our bones change as we age, and while the lower face gains volume, the jawline becomes wider, causing sagging skin, or jowls, to become more noticeable in the jawline and neck area. By strategically injecting filler into the chin itself and an area called the “pre-jowl sulcus,” or the dip beneath the chin where it meets the jowls, the chin can have a more prominent projection, plumping the area and reducing the appearance of fine lines while temporarily smoothing and rejuvenating the jaw contour.
It can be used to proportion other parts of the face
Adding filler to the chin area can have a significant impact on facial contouring. Many people are surprised to learn that chin filler can also create the illusion of a smaller nose by altering facial proportions. This makes jawline filler a potential alternative to rhinoplasty for those seeking a similar effect without surgery. Therefore, choosing a highly experienced practitioner who understands not only facial anatomy, but also the subtle interplay between various facial features, is crucial.
Can jawline filler lift jowls?
While jawline filler can create a more defined and lifted appearance to the jawline area, it is important to note that it may not necessarily lift jowls. Jowls are caused by sagging skin and loss of elasticity in the lower face, and while jawline filler can help to create a more defined and youthful jawline, it may not address the underlying cause of jowls.
In some cases, a combination of treatments may be recommended to address both the jawline and jowl area. This could include a combination of jawline filler, dermal fillers in the midface, and possibly even a facelift or other surgical procedure to address the jowl area.
Overall, jawline filler can be a great option for those looking to enhance their jawline and create a more defined and youthful appearance. However, it is important to work with a skilled and experienced injector who can help you achieve your desired results while also considering your individual facial structure and goals.
