What Injectables Are Used For Jawline Contouring?

In our western culture, we associate a sharp, angled jawline with beauty for both men and women. Most of us were not born with the V perfect jawline, but now, thanks to cosmetic injectables, Dr. Sheilah A, Lynch can offer you a more aesthetically pleasing jawline.

Her general product of choice for jawline contouring is most often Radiesse.

Radiesse differs from other hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. While it does provide volume like other fillers, Radiesse contains calcium hydroxylapitate (CaHA), which is a collagen stimulator.

Most cosmetic injections involve the stimulation of collagen. They can take several weeks to months to show results.  The makers of Radiesse created the CaHA in the Radiesse cosmetic filler into a suspended gel carrier. The gel carrier provides instant volume and results and gives the CaHA time to produce your body’s own collagen. As the gel carrier is slowly reabsorbed over the next few months, your body is replacing that volume with its own collagen for  beautiful, natural results.

Jawline Slimming

What is Jawline slimming?  Or its medical term – masseters reduction for cosmetic purposes? This procedure is a simple yet effective correction, by using injections of Botox or Dysport  into the large masseter muscles in either side of your jaw to create a slim and more feminine facial profile.

The masseter muscles are attached at the angle of your jawline and control all the movements related to chewing food. For some people, strong jaw muscles are part of their normal anatomy. However, for others a square jaw line is the result of a condition called bruxism, which causes excessive teeth grinding or clenching.

With some of our female patients, an over-pronounced jawline can be perceived as unattractive. In women, especially, a square shaped face is often associated with masculinity. Often, this square shape is caused by hypertrophy of the masseter muscle. Teeth grinding causes the hypertrophic growth of the muscles attached to the jaw, called the masseters, and therefore a wider square-looking face.

A common cause of this issue is the overuse of habitual teeth grinding, the masseter muscles become over developed and more pronounced, changing the shape of your lower face to alter and acquire a strong ‘square-jawed’ look. Clenching or grinding teeth is an involuntary movement, which you can’t  control and occurs whether you are awake or asleep. The medical term for unconscious teeth grinding and jaw clenching is bruxism, and many people suffer of it for years without even realizing it.

70% of grinding and clenching happens at night when we sleep, but it can also happen while we are concentrating (for example driving, reading, or watching TV) or under stress.

When injecting Botox or Dysport, you can effectively relax the muscle in most cases with single treatment. This treatment typically last 3-4 months.

Non- Surgical Chin Augmentation

Referencing back to PHI, our golden ratio of 1:1.618, chin augmentation may be indicated to optimize facial aesthetics. According to PHI, the length of the chin should be approximately 1.618 to the to the total volume of the top and bottom lip together. Furthermore, the projection of the chin should create a straight line with the top lip and bottom lip when viewed in profile. Most often, HA fillers, like Restylane, are used to achieve these proportions whether we are looking to lengthen or project the chin.

Jowl Reduction Using Jawline Fillers

Pre-jowl sulcus, or that little bit of sagging or pooching in the jawline, is an obvious indicator of aging. As we get older, the fat pads throughout our face start to dissipate and separate from each other. This separation and the result of gravity create heaviness in the lower face, often along the jawline.

Depending on the severity of the jowling, different treatment options may be available.

Filler injections along the jawline (again, often Radiesse) can help to “tether” and “stretch” the jowling to make it less prominent. Filler injections may also be indicated in the cheeks to help to create lift in the lower face.

Another treatment option is injecting Belkyra directly into the fat in the jowls. Belkyra is a deoxycholic acid that is injected into fat to permanently dissolve it. That’s right, permanent results!
