Although developing a rounded or sagging jawline is a natural part of aging, having a defined, sharper jawline can help you look younger and defy early signs of aging. At The Skin Center, we are happy to offer our patients the opportunity to achieve the overall face shape they’ve always wanted with our Jawline Contouring procedure with JUVÉDERM® VOLUX®.
What is Jawline Contouring?
Jawline contouring at The Skin Center involves using the dermal filler JUVÉDERM VOLUX. By injecting this filler into the lower half of the face, the jawline is lifted, sculpted, and almost instantly more defined. Not only does this contour the jawline, but it also helps achieve facial balancing, create symmetry, and improve volume in the lower half of the face, creating a more picture-perfect side profile.
Who Is a Candidate for Jawline Contouring?
Ideal candidates for jawline contouring are those who are interested in improving the appearance of their jawline. Candidates should be in overall good health, non-smokers, and not have any allergies to the ingredients used in the dermal filler JUVÉDERM VOLUX. This procedure is most popular with women between the ages of 21 to 50 years old. However, jawline contouring is a beneficial procedure for any adult, including men!
How Long Do the Results from Jawline Contouring Last?
The results from jawline contouring are designed to last between one to two years. However, over time, it is natural for your body to absorb the JUVÉDERM VOLUX filler, and the appearance of your results may not look as noticeable as they did immediately after your treatment. Because of this, many patients commit to scheduling follow-up appointments every 18 months in order to maintain their desired jawline appearance.
What is Recovery Like after Jawline Contouring?
Common side effects from jawline contouring with dermal filler are redness, swelling, bruising, and skin sensitivity. However, within one to two days, these side effects should disappear. Cold compresses can also help reduce swelling. There is no set recovery time following your jawline contouring procedure because many patients are able to return to work and their normal routines after their fillers are injected. In two to three weeks, patients can expect their JUVÉDERM VOLUX to settle in their face, creating an improved, natural-looking jawline.
Are There Any Risks with Jawline Contouring?
If improperly injected, JUVÉDERM VOLUX can cause lumps, firmness, and discoloration on the face. If a patient is allergic to dermal filler, they may also experience itching. However, at The Skin Center, our dedicated team of board-certified cosmetic surgeons, plastic surgeons, nurses, and aesthetic clinicians approach every procedure with each patient’s needs, safety, and comfort in mind, allowing patients to manage or avoid these risks completely.
What are the Benefits of Jawline Contouring Compared to Other Treatments?
The number one benefit of a dermal filler jawline contouring procedure is that it requires very little recovery time. In comparison to other invasive procedures and surgeries that can reshape the face, patients who undergo our jawline contouring treatment won’t have to worry about the complications that come with a surgical treatment recovery. In addition, jawline contouring is easy to maintain, with a follow-up appointment needed only once a year. Many patients also report that achieving the jawline they’ve always wanted has helped increase their self-confidence!
