You may already know that dermal fillers can be a great solution for smoothing out wrinkles, restoring lost volume, and plumping up lips. But they can also improve facial aesthetics in other ways — specifically, contouring your jawline so it looks smoother, chiseled, and more defined.
At Pure Dermatology in Austin, Texas, Christopher Chu, MD, FAAD, is skilled in using dermal fillers to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals without surgery and without downtime. In this post, learn how fillers can help improve your jawline and your overall facial contours, too.
Many people don’t give a lot of thought to their jawline area or the way its shape influences the rest of your facial contours — at least, not until age turns jaws into jowls. But your jawline plays a major role in defining not only your overall facial shape, but the harmony between other facial elements, as well.
A poorly defined jawline can result in a weak chin area or make your face look too narrow or too round. While clever use of makeup may provide some camouflage, it can’t truly redefine those lines; plus, you need to apply and reapply makeup throughout the day.
A well-defined jawline helps highlight other facial features, balancing your face shape while enhancing overall facial symmetry. What’s more, people of all ages can benefit from jawline enhancement with facial fillers, reaping the benefits without surgery or downtime.
One of the most obvious uses of jawline fillers is to help define a weak or underdeveloped jaw area. But there are lots of other reasons to have fillers in this area, too, including:
Overall, jawline fillers can help chisel your look and remodel your face shape, helping you look more youthful and feel more confident.
The filler process is simple and straightforward. First, we meet with you to evaluate your jawline, your facial shape and symmetry, and your treatment goals. Then, we design a filler injection plan specifically for you. Dr. Chu is skilled in a variety of filler products to help you achieve your desired look.
Your treatment begins by marking injection sites to ensure accurate and precise placement of your fillers. Then, Dr. Chu makes injections along your jawline to distribute the material according to your treatment plan.
After your filler treatment, there’s no downtime, but you’ll probably have some temporary redness and minor swelling around the injection sites, both of which resolve within a few hours.
Depending on the filler used for your jawline contouring, you can expect your results to last for more than a year. And regular touch-ups can help those results last indefinitely.
Dermal fillers can help you achieve your aesthetic goals, providing beautiful, natural, custom results so you can look and feel your best.
