Our non-surgical treatments have little to no downtime, while offering gentle and pain-free procedures.
What Is Involved in Contouring?
The contour of a person’s jawline can change the entire look of the face, thus when skin starts to sag, or your jawline is naturally weak, it can feel distracting when you look in the mirror at your reflection. Being able to achieve a more defined and strong jawline can be appealing to most, but if you’re not sure of the procedure and risks, non-surgical options may be right for you. A non-surgical contouring is a cosmetic procedure that uses injectable dermal fillers to add volume to the jaw, sculpting and contouring the lower part of your jaw. Although it sounds odd to add fillers to get more defined results, the process is highly effective and is increasing in popularity. The slight increase in volume helps to enhance and build the jawline’s existing structure, while creating a more definitive separation between the jawline and the neck to give more of a contoured appearance.
Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring
There are a wide variety of dermal fillers available for body sculpting in Orlando. The most popular is Juvederm Voluma XC, which is a FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler for adding volume to the face. It’s usually used for restoring volume in cheeks and for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, and more recently for a more defined jawline. There are two other dermal fillers, Sculptra and Restylane, which can be used for sculpting the jawline as well. To be an ideal candidate for contouring procedures, it’s best to be in optimal health and be honest with your doctor on any medical history in the family.
Your doctor will determine which dermal filler will help best, along with determining your overall health and whether you are a good candidate. Not only does your health play a factor, but also the structure of your face and jawline, your skin’s elasticity, your associated concerns and what your actual jawline goals are, as sometimes what you wish for may not be available to you. One of the many benefits of non-surgical contouring for the jawline is how long the results last. Your results could last up to two years before your next needed treatment. Overall results do vary depending on every individual, and if you also add in other injections such as Botox, those results have more limited results and will vary with the timeframe of the jawline dermal filler as well.
Although not medically cleared as a specific contouring tool for jawlines, Botox does offer many of the same benefits as other dermal fillers. Botox is not a dermal filler itself, but works to relax the masseter muscles in your jawline to help create more of a defined and strong jaw. If you also suffer from teeth grinding and other jaw-related issues, as well as migraines, pain, and poor sleep, Botox has been shown to help relieve these symptoms as well. Your doctor can better assist you in whether you want to pursue a regular jawline dermal filler, Botox, or both to achieve the look you desire.
