As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about using dermal filler change the shape of the jaw.
What is dermal filler?
Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid into different facial areas. This a naturally occurring acid, found throughout the body, but more commonly in the skin cells. As a natural part of the ageing process, this hyaluronic acid is used up, leading to a lack of collagen and elastin, which in turn causes the skin to lose volume and elasticity. By injecting hyaluronic acid into specific facial areas, you can add more volume directly to these areas, changing the shape and structure of the face. This will also hydrate skin cells and provide much needed cell nourishment. But how can this be used to target the jaw directly?
How can dermal filler change the shape of the jaw?
Dermal filler can be used effectively to change the shape of your jaw. This can be achieved through a range of methods, including:
- Direct jaw filler
- Chin filler
- Cheek filler
Jaw fillers can change the shape of your jaw
Dermal filler injected into areas of the jawline itself can be very beneficial for changing the shape of the jaw. By increasing volume, in very small amounts, in areas of the jaw targeted by a professional, in line with your natural facial structure, you can experience dramatic jawline changes. This is because the filler injections will increase volume slightly in key places, particularly where volume may have been lost. This will move skin back to where it should be, and reduce any sagging skin around the very edge of your jawline. As a result, you can expect a clear, smooth jawline.
Chin fillers can change the shape of your jaw
Naturally, because the chin is the most forward part of the jawline, changing the shape or structure of your chin can have a knock on impact on the overall shape of your jaw. By using dermal fillers to add more profile, or projection to the chin, any sagging skin can be pulled tighter, smoothing the jawline. Alternatively, injecting dermal filler in the pre-jowl sulcus, or the area between the jowl and the chin, can immediately lessen the appearance of any jowls, and change your facial shape.
Cheek fillers can change the shape of your jaw
Finally, injecting dermal filler into the cheek areas of the face can also have an impact on the shape of your jaw. This is because, as a natural part of the ageing process, fat and volume is often lost from the cheeks, as the fat pads move lower down the face. This results in sagging skin, which becomes heavier towards the base of the face and jawline. By increasing the volume of the cheeks, the skin can reset to it’s original position, and smooth or sharpen your jawline.
