And we can also help change the shape of your face too, including the jaw. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about using dermal filler to reduce the jawline.
How can dermal filler be used for slimming?
Normally, when we think of dermal filler we associate this with adding volume to the skin. So it seems like an impossible task to consider reducing the jawline with dermal fillers. But actually by replacing lost volume in other parts of the face, and by using filler to exaggerate different points of the jawline, we can contour the jawline helping to create a slimmer overall visual effect.
There are two main causes for a wider jawline and these are:
- Facial bone structure – the facial bone structure around the jawline can be a genetic and inherited quality, and it can also be something that changes over time. For some this can lead to an angular or squared jaw. In this case, dermal fillers can be used to add volume to certain areas of the jaw, to create a more ovular contour.
- Sagging skin – as a natural part of the aging process, skin can begin to sag. This is because of a loss of collagen and elastin within the skin, as well as the loss and reduction of facial fat pads. Combined, this allows skin to sag particularly around the edge of the jawline. Here, dermal fillers can be used to add volume to replace the lost volume higher up in the cheeks, which can create a smoother more streamlined jawline.
What are the advantages of using dermal filler to slim the jawline?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to choosing dermal filler to help slim the jawline. These include:
- Non surgical treatment
- Natural results
- Reversible results
Dermal fillers are a non surgical treatment
Although dermal fillers should always be administered by a qualified, trained professional, like us here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, dermal fillers are not a surgical procedure. This means that they can be carried out at any time of the day, and it also means that you can continue with your day straight away, without any downtime. You can also avoid taking time off work for the treatment to be carried out, and you won’t need to spend the night (or longer) in the hospital.
Dermal fillers provide natural results
With a dermal filler treatment for reducing the jawline, you can be sure of a natural, subtle result that suits the shape of your face. This can help to increase confidence and self esteem associated with your jawline.
Dermal fillers are reversible
Unlike facial surgery, dermal fillers are an aesthetic procedure that can be reversed if you do not like the results. This gives you full flexibility and can help to put your mind at rest before undertaking any treatments.
