If you wish your jawline was sharper and more sculpted, you’re not alone. Jawline-enhancing treatments and procedures have recently experienced a boom in popularity. Of all the options, injectable dermal fillers are one of the fastest and most effective ways to treat poor jawline definition. These products can make you look slimmer and, in the case of age-related volume loss, take years off your appearance. Let’s get into the details of jawline filler treatments.
What Causes Poor Jawline Definition?
Jawline definition is a multi-faceted concern. For example, genetics play a role in your chin and jawline development, so you might find that your lower face has never been as structured as you would like. If you had a strong jawline in your youth but have noticed it getting weaker with age, it could be the result of volume loss. More specifically, bone loss in your mandible and fat loss are likely to blame. Jowl fat repositioning can also contribute to loss of jawline definition. Other things, such as having an overbite, smoking, and eating soft foods or sucking on your thumb as a child, can also impact the shape of your chin and jaw.
What Type Of Filler Is Best For The Jawline?
Several fillers are ideal for improving jawline definition and creating a more elongated look. At Miami Skin and Vein, Dr. Shaun Patel prefers to use thicker gel formulas such as Restylane® Lyft, Radiesse®, and Juvéderm® Voluma to help mimic the bone structure of the lower face.
Restylane Lyft, in particular, is a sturdy filler that performs very well when treating the chin, pre-jowl hollow, and posterior jawline. If you are dealing with age-related changes to your jaw, you may feel a bit of a give when you press on these areas due to bone and fat loss. Your chin loses structure as well. Fortunately, formulas like Restylane Lyft can improve the projection of the chin and pull it back out. This step will help enhance your facial harmony.
When treating the lower face, Dr. Patel often likes to combine traditional injections with microcannula injections. In his experience, microcannula injections result in less bruising, are more comfortable for the patient, and are safer to use when adding filler anywhere near the facial artery. The results are immediately apparent and can last for up to 24 months.
