Understanding Jawline Definition
A strong jawline can become weak over time. As you age, fat beneath the surface of your skin fades, but it also descends and redistributes itself in unwanted ways. To make matters worse, you also lose volume in your jawbone.
An undefined jawline can be an issue for younger patients too. Due to your unique bone structure and the shape of your face, your chin and jaw may not have the elegant look that you desire.
The desire to improve your jawline is very common. Thankfully, Dr. Patel has a solution.
Injectable dermal fillers offer impressive results when it comes to restoring lost jawline volume. These gel-like formulas also correct the aesthetic impact of age-related jawbone insufficiency. Thicker fillers are ideal for this area, and Dr. Patel knows how to administer them to create a stunning outcome.
Popular fillers for the jawline include:
Nefertiti Lift Using BOTOX® Cosmetic
The Nefertiti Lift is a great option for younger patients who want a subtle improvement in the definition of their jawline. However, it may not be the ideal treatment for older patients who have significant volume loss.
This treatment relaxes your platysma muscle through the strategic placement of BOTOX®. This is the muscle that runs all the way from your chest to your face. Your platysma muscle constantly pulls down on the face and jawline, tugging at your features.
By relaxing this muscle right at the jawline, the contour and definition of the area will improve. The treatment can also be used to address the appearance of prominent vertical neck bands as well.
You can reduce fat under your chin and in your jowls with safe and effective Kybella injections. This can lead to a significant improvement in the definition of your jawline.
The main ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, the molecule in your body that breaks down dietary fat. Once injected, it works to eliminate unwanted fat cells in the treatment area.
Currently, Kybella is FDA-approved for the treatment of fat below the chin. Treating jowl fat is an off-label use, but many practices — including ours — are seeing great results from this application.
Energy-based devices can tighten skin and help with jawline definition. While there are several effective devices on the market, we exclusively offer Sublime skin treatments with the elos Plus platform.
Sublime is a radiofrequency treatment that gently heats the skin, stimulating natural collagen production. This reduces skin laxity and sagging to define the jawline.
Combining Treatment Options
All of these treatments can be combined. In fact, they can all be performed on the same day. Of course, that approach may not be right for everyone, but it can provide remarkable results for the right patient.
Usually, an energy-based treatment should be performed first because it involves deep skin heating. Then, fillers can be placed in the chin or jawline. Lastly, Dr. Patel may strategically inject BOTOX®.
Dr. Patel will create an individualized treatment plan for you. He will find the best way to help you achieve the jawline definition you desire. In the end, it’s important to love the way you look!
