Jawline augmentations are a fast-growing, non-surgical treatment to enhance the look of your jawline and jowls. While some people naturally don’t have a sharp jawline, others start to get a sagging jawline due to the aging process. If you feel like your jawline is asymmetrical, lacks definition, or is sagging, you may want to consider a jawline augmentation. By placing filler along the jawline, Michele is able to sculpt a tighter, more defined profile; making your face appear slimmer. Maybe you feel like your chin is too short or small in relation to the rest of the face? If so, adding a filler to the chin can help create balance in the side profile.
A jaw/chin enhancement uses injections of dermal fillers such as Radiesse or Restylane Refyne. During the treatment, small volumes of the filler are injected at several places along the jawline. This process changes the contours of the area by filling in the skin from the inside out. The result is a jawline/chin that looks more prominent and well defined. The process is quick and virtually painless. No to little downtime is needed, as you should not get much swelling in this area and bruising is minimal. The results will last anywhere from 6-12 months (individual results may vary).
The longevity of your results is largely dependent on the age of the patient, their metabolism, the amount of exercise they do regularly, and the normal blood flow to the face. For example, someone who is young with a fast metabolism and more blood flow to the face will most likely burn through filler quicker than someone who is older. In addition to this, filler in certain areas of the face tends to last longer than others. For example, lip fillers only last about 6 months due to how much we move our mouths. However, filler in a less mobile area such as the tear troughs and cheeks lasts around 1 year. Each filler product is uniquely formulated, therefore some products will last longer than others. Please remember individual results will always vary.
Radiesse ($800/syringe): Radiesse is smooth and gel-filled, with tiny calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. When injected, it adds immediate volume and correction while the microspheres act as a scaffold, stimulating your body to produce its own, natural collagen. Since Radiesse is not a Hyaluronic Acid Filler, it cannot be dissolved. With that said, Radiesse injections should only be performed by an experienced and highly skilled injector. Lasts up to 12 months. Individual results may vary.
Restylane Defyne ($800/syringe): Restylane Defyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with XpresHAn TechnologyTM that helps correct lines for a more natural look to your face. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Defyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning, and even puckering up. Lasts up to 12 months. Individual results may vary.
