For adding volume to particular facial areas, dermal fillers are one of the most popular options. But did you know that these can also be used to sculpt the face, and to create effective contouring and shaping? Well, as Preston’s leading aesthetic professionals, here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we have the skills and expertise to help sculpt and alter your facial structure. And this is our guide to everything you should know about dermal fillers and facial sculpting.
What is facial sculpting?
Facial sculpting involves the use of aesthetic practices to alter and change the shape of the face, without surgery. One of the most important aspects of this is the application of dermal fillers into different facial areas to create different results.
What are the different options for facial sculpting with dermal fillers?
There are a number of different ways to use dermal fillers to sculpt and shape the face. These options include:
- Creating higher, more prominent cheekbones
- Slimming the jawline
- Widening the jawline
Using dermal filler to sculpt the cheekbones
Dermal filler can be an effective option for sculpting the cheekbones. By injecting dermal filler under the skin just above the cheekbones the profile of the cheeks can be raised, and the cheekbones will look more prominent. This can be a great option for maintaining a youthful appearance and changing the facial structure. Cheekbone fillers can also help to slimline the face too.
Using dermal filler to slim the jawline
Injecting dermal filler into the right areas in the lower part of the face can make a dramatic difference to the overall shape and structure of the face. To slim the jawline and change the profile of the face, dermal fillers can be added slightly higher up to replace lost volume. This automatically allows the skin around the jawline to rise, resolving any sagging skin and creating a well defined jaw.
Jawline fillers can also be complemented by injections of filler into the chin area. By increasing the length of the chin, even slightly, the width of the jawline will again be reduced. This, paired with cheekbone fillers, can even help to create a more heart shaped face.
Using dermal filler to widen the jawline
For some people, a wider, well defined jawline is the ideal result of facial sculpting and this is again something that dermal fillers, injected under the skin, can help to achieve. In this instance, the fillers will be used to move and tighten the skin in the surrounding area, as well as to add volume to the jawline itself, increasing jawline definition. For a more square jaw result, this process can also be very effective.
Again these jawline fillers should be paired with effective chin fillers to also widen the chin in line with the jaw, and to create the right facial structure for your natural build.
Choose professionals for facial sculpting
While facial sculpting may not require surgery, and while dermal fillers can also be dissolved, this aesthetic treatment should only ever be provided by professional, qualified and registered professionals. There are a number of risks associated with dermal filler injections delivered by someone without training, including life altering and life risking complications. On top of avoiding these dangers, working with a professional aesthetic provider can ensure that your facial sculpting has the desired result, with subtle, natural and stunning results in line with your individual requirements and natural structure.
