While everyone is familiar with filler used to plump lips and lines, it’s now being used in chins and jawlines to contour faces. Here’s how it works.
Not only can filler be used to contour the cheeks and help restore volume that is lost over time. It can also augment natural features and provide more definition and structure to the chin and jawline area. By injecting into this region, dermatologists can contour – or, rather, recontour – a patient’s face shape. And a subtle change can have a major impact on your appearance and your self-confidence!
Jawline and chin contouring: How it works
By injecting fillers strategically, dermatologists can help reshape and provide enhanced definition in the chin and jawline area. This treatment is popular among both men and women. In men, it can create a more defined, masculine jawline. In women, it can subtly provide definition that is lost over time to create an angular more sculpted appearance. Using dermal fillers in these areas can also minimize signs of aging in the lower half of the face and improve sagging and jowls.
The effects of this type of augmentation are both subtle and dramatic, as it can improve your side and front profile without having to undergo an invasive procedure. When injected into the chin, the fillers can elongate the profile and balance the face.
What you need to know
What do chin and jawline contouring involve? Your dermatologist will examine your face and discuss if and how dermal fillers would be an appropriate option. Then, the hyaluronic acid filler is injected after the skin is prepped and clean. This offers a long-lasting and natural finish.
Generally, only one appointment is required to achieve the desired result. The filler typically lasts around one year in this area. The treatment is only as painful as the prick of a few needles, and you may feel some pressure or discomfort. This makes it a great option for people who want an affordable solution to a more sculpted profile with minimal downtime.
