As we age, our skin loses collagen, which leads to wrinkling and skin laxity and can make us feel self-conscious. The jawline is one area that shows the most visible signs of aging. Jawline contouring is a simple and effective way to tighten the skin on your jaw, giving a more youthful appearance. North Dallas Dermatology Associates in Dallas, Texas, is available to help you feel confident in your skin!
What Is Jawline Contouring?
Jawline contouring is a popular cosmetic treatment that shapes and refines the jawline. This treatment can create a more pronounced masculine look or a softer, less prominent, feminine look.
You can contour your jawline through a variety of methods. While surgery is a popular option, others may choose to pursue injectable treatment options.
Who Should Receive Jawline Contouring?
This treatment is available for both men and women. While beauty comes in many forms, we most often associate a feminine face with the shape of an inverted triangle or heart, where the top of the head tapers off into the jawline, and a masculine face with a square jawline.
As a result, this treatment is most popular with women because it can create a less prominent jawline, allowing for a more harmonious balance with other facial features that can soften the appearance. However, most generally healthy adults with realistic goals and expectations may qualify as potential candidates.
What Does Jawline Contouring Entail?
There are a variety of injectables that may be utilized to provide jawline contouring benefits. For example, Kybella may be used to first decrease the presence of submental fat, which is a double chin. To improve skin laxity in the area or definition, dermal fillers may be recommended. Dermal fillers are an effective choice for providing targeted volume increases.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The visible improvement in the jawline becomes clear up to 6 weeks after the treatment. The results may last between 4 and 6 months on average. Depending on the injectables used, the results may gradually improve over time. However, some patients have reported results lasting up to 12 months.
Results will ultimately vary for each person, their goals, and their unique treatment plan. As these measures do not necessarily all create permanent results, a series of regular treatments may be recommended to achieve and maintain the best results. Our professional staff will work with you to create a specialized treatment plan.
