The range of anti-ageing treatments is ever expanding, with more people than ever before opting for aesthetic or surgical procedures to slow the signs of ageing. Dermal fillers are a popular solution for people of all ages, because these can alter the shape and structure of your face. From lip filler to cheek and jaw filler, dermal fillers can be used in a range of facial areas for effective results. But how can jaw fillers fight the signs of ageing? And will they be suitable for you? Well, here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we are Preston’s leading aesthetic practitioners. We offer a range of procedures, including anti-wrinkle injections, dermaplaning and dermal fillers. And this is our guide to everything you should know about jaw fillers.
How does ageing change the jawline?
As we age, our faces develop lines and wrinkles caused by frequent expressions, a loss of elastin and collagen, and a loss of hydration. Our facial structure also changes as the bones of the face weaken, and the fat pads are depleted. This change is structure is particularly relevant to the jawline.
As part of the ageing process, the lower jaw bone often becomes lower, and facial fat pads around this area are lost, leading to a more angular, tired face.
At the same time, fat pads on the cheeks also become depleted. This causes the skin to sag, and over time this results in sagging skin around the jawline. A less defined jawline can age your appearance too.
What are jaw fillers?
So, what are jaw fillers? Well, these are specific injections of dermal filler, that are injected directly into points around the jawline. The dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the skin, that depletes as we age. This substance is responsible for retaining moisture to nourish and hydrate the skin.
Jaw fillers carried out by a professional team like ours here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, will be planned and injected into areas based on your individual facial scaffold for natural, effective results.
How can jaw fillers fight the signs of ageing?
But how do jaw fillers fight the signs of ageing? Well, jaw fillers tackle the signs of ageing in two ways:
- Jaw fillers add facial structure. By replacing lost volume around the jawline, you can prevent or reduce sagging skin. This will help you achieve a more youthful appearance with a well structured face. This doesn’t just apply to your jawline though. Additional structure in the lower half of the face can help prevent facial fat pads in the cheeks from moving down the face, preventing hollow patches forming under the eye.
- Jaw fillers add hydration. Hyaluronic acid can re-hydrate skin, bringing back a glowing, smooth, and youthful appearance. This can also help to prevent or reduce wrinkles from forming around the jawline area.
