Jawline Fillers – Truth About Non Surgical Jaw Enhancement
There’s nothing more frustrating than feeling unhappy with the overall shape of your face. Until recent years, if your jaw was uneven, too pointy or not shapely enough you had two choices: put up with it or go under the knife. But with the introduction of jawline fillers, that’s all changed.
Jawline fillers are a non surgical procedure that can reshape and enhance your jawline, smoothing out wrinkles, reducing sagging and giving you the face shape that you desire.
Popular with men and women, it’s fast becoming one of the most sought after aesthetic treatments.
What Can Jawline Fillers Do?
Jawline fillers are a popular non surgical and minimally invasive procedure that can temporarily change the shape of your face – without the need for surgery. No scalpels, no chiselling bone and no scarring.
For men, jawline fillers can help enhance the jawline, giving men a stronger looking jaw and more chiselled appearance. According to some studies, a strong jawline makes men more sexually attractive to women. Combined with an angular chin, it suggests higher testosterone, better resource provisioning skills and protection ability.
Now in reality, in today’s modern world we don’t need to look for these things in a man, however, our unconscious mind has not yet progressed enough to fully understand that and until it does – a strong chiselled jaw and sharp chin will continue to be an attractive attribute to women.
For women, jawline fillers can offer different results. We can use them to reduce the signs of ageing such as sagging skin and wrinkles, create facial harmony by softening your jowls, strengthening your jawline, improving a double chin or evening out a wonky jaw.
A more chiselled appearance can also make the face look slimmer, change the shape of an overly round face and give you an overall sleeker and more youthful appearance.
How Do Jawline Fillers Work?
Jawline fillers are a non-surgical way to enhance your features and define the natural angles, outlines and structure to strengthen your jawline and improve the overall aesthetic appeal of your face.
During the treatment, your aesthetic doctor will carefully inject the dermal fillers along your jawline to create the desired look. These fillers add volume, changing the shape of your jaw and lifting, defining and shaping your face without surgery.
Results are visible immediately and there’s no need for any respite or time off work – you can continue with your schedule and enjoy your new look right away.
How Long Does It Last?
Because jawline fillers are non surgical, the results are not permanent but you can expect them to last around 12 months or longer with top-up treatments.
One of the benefits of the temporary nature of jawline fillers is that changing your face is a BIG deal. Sometimes people decide they don’t like their new look, in which case they can wait until the fillers wear off – or they can be dissolved using a special solution injection.
This also makes it a great treatment to have to “try out” your new look if you’re considering permanent surgery.
Do Jawline Fillers Hurt?
Like most injectable treatments, jawline fillers use an anaesthetic cream to help numb the area of your face that’s going to be treated. In some cases, a local anaesthetic injection (similar to the ones you have at the dentist) can be administered as well.
While it’s not entirely painless, most people say that their jawline fillers treatment is a comfortable experience. You might feel some pinching as the needle goes in and a feeling of fullness as the filler is injected.
Are Jawline Fillers Safe?
Jawline fillers are approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment.
While there can be some minor side effects such as pain, redness, swelling and bruising, serious complications are very rare.
Here at Elite Aesthetics, the gel filler we use is made from hyaluronic acid – a safe and naturally occurring substance in your body. This reduces the likelihood of allergic reactions and increases your body’s tolerability.
As with most aesthetic procedures, the risks associated with them are drastically reduced by choosing a fully qualified and experienced Aesthetic Doctor to complete your treatment.
What To Look For When Choosing a Clinic or Aesthetician
Surprisingly, the aesthetic industry is not strictly regulated. There’s no law that states you must be trained, qualified or insured to injectable treatments, so anyone can call themselves an aesthetician and offer jawline fillers! Because of this, it’s essential that you thoroughly research potential clinics or aestheticians and choose someone who is reputable, experienced and safe.
So what should you look for in a clinic or aesthetician?
- Accredited Qualifications – Look for an aesthetic doctor that has undertaken training and gained accredited qualifications. They should be happy to show you their certificates and you should be very wary of anyone who won’t! Look for GMC Accredited and CQC Registered.
- Experience & A Proven Track Record – Reshaping faces requires skill that only comes from practice and experience. Look for an aesthetician who has several years in practice and a good reputation.
- Insurance – Insurance keeps both you and the aesthetic doctor safe. Ask to see their insurance certificates. While insurance is not a legal requirement, someone practising without insurance is a red flag and sign of serious unprofessionalism.
- Honest Consultations – You should never have a treatment without a thorough consultation to help you understand the procedure, the risks and the potential results. A good aesthetician will talk with you, answer all questions and make you feel comfortable.
