(loss of shapE)
As part of the facial re-contouring, jawline reshaping is sought after to pursue a youthful and fresh look, as well as to enhance masculinity in men and sensuality in women.
In all cases, a sharp and well-defined jawline is desired.
The volume loss due to the decrease in muscle and bone mass associated with ageing often results in loss of jawline definition. The first signs are, in some individuals, visible in their 30s, sometimes earlier.
Reshaping the mandible area by injecting dermal fillers helps sharpening the jawline whilst restoring definition. In order to achieve the best results in face contouring the concomitant injection in the chin region, jaw corner and cheekbone is often recommended.
Hyaluronic acid volumizing agents have changed the treatment of chin and jawline reshaping, often representing the preferred pain and complication-free alternative to surgical procedures.
With the introduction of newer fillers, a higher performance, longer-lasting and more natural results are expected. In the case of older patients, the appearance of mild degree jowls can also be improved by the procedure. Results may vary depending on the individual factors.
About the treatment:
The area around the jawline tends to be less sensitive to pain than some other areas.
An anaesthetic cream will, however, be applied locally to numb the area to be injected.
procedure time: 45 to 60 minutes
back to work: immediately
the onset of action: immediately
duration of action: results are maintained for approximately 6 - 18 months
anaesthetic: not required
risk and complications: minor swelling at the injection site
