Jaw Fillers Brisbane

Jawline filler, or dermal filler applied to the jaws, can be used to adjust the appearance of the jaw’s upper, middle, and lower thirds.

Depending on what you prefer, the treatment plan can be designed to add volume to specific areas and provide aesthetic structural support to the cheeks and chin.

Our exceptional experience with jaw fillers

Dr. Scott Allison, known for his work in cosmetic injectables, has a strong focus on enhancing jawlines with dermal fillers. He has shared his methods and results at many domestic and international conferences, teaching other doctors and nurses his techniques. In his clinic, Dr. Allison personally performs jawline enhancement procedures using dermal fillers, applying techniques he has developed over years of practice.

He also trains all staff at the Ascension Clinic, ensuring they are skilled in these same methods. This training allows the staff to provide high-quality treatments, similar to those performed by Dr. Allison. Both he and his team, whom he has personally mentored, offer treatments to patients, aiming to maintain a consistent level of care and results across the clinic.

Patients at the Ascension Clinic receive treatments from a team that has been thoroughly trained by Dr. Allison, reflecting his approach and attention to detail in jawline enhancement.

Typically, jawline treatments are combined with upper face or cheek filler treatments and may be accompanied by anti-wrinkle injections to alleviate tension in the lower face caused by overactive muscles. This option can be discussed in detail during a one-on-one consultation with one of our nurses at Ascension to create a treatment plan that works for you.

What is dermal filler?

Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance typically composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound in our bodies. Fillers add volume to the specifically injected areas when administered beneath the skin’s surface. Various dermal fillers are employed for specific purposes: firmer filler material for making changes to the shape of the targeted area, and softer filler material for moisturising the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines. In a jaw filler treatment, firmer types of dermal fillers are used.

What can we do with jaw filler?

SIZE AND SHAPE

Using firm filler that functions in a similar way to bone we can change the size and strength of the jawline from the outer jaw under the ear, through to the side of the jaw and chin.

AGEING OF THE JAWLINE

As we age, we lose bone from the jaw and get increased sagging of the fat pads. This can be addressed with jawline filler.

JAWLINE AFTER A FACELIFT

There can sometimes be a deformity near the ear following a facelift procedure. This can be addressed with jawline filler to create a smoother transition to the jaw. Dr Allison frequently works with Plastic Surgeons in Brisbane to improve outcomes after facelifts.

Possible benefits of jaw fillers

Jaw fillers offer a minimally invasive treatment that achieves 2 years lasting significant results and can benefit those who do not want to undergo surgical procedures.

A non-surgical approach with cosmetic injectables will have a less extensive aftercare process and will achieve results that can be reversed or adjusted over time.

The treatment is highly personalised and tailored to your preferences and unique facial structure.

Pricing

Pricing for jaw fillers varies based on individual needs, as the required dosages differ. Prices start at $680.

Suitable candidates for the treatment

Several factors make someone a good candidate for jaw or dermal fillers.

One factor is having a relatively healthy and stable medical condition. Candidates should disclose any underlying health conditions or medications they are taking during the consultation with the injector. This information helps the injector assess the overall suitability of the jaw filler treatment.

Another consideration is having realistic expectations. Candidates should clearly understand what jaw fillers can and cannot achieve. It is important to have reasonable expectations and understand that results may vary based on individual factors such as facial anatomy and response to the treatment.

Candidates should be of a suitable age for the treatment. Jaw filler is typically recommended for adults who have reached a certain level of facial maturity. The injector will consider factors such as skin elasticity and bone structure to determine if the candidate is suitable for the procedure.

During a consultation, the injector will evaluate the individual’s facial anatomy, discuss their treatment goals, and assess their suitability for jaw filler treatment. They will consider these various factors to determine if the candidate should undergo the procedure.

The jaw filler procedure

At the beginning of the treatment session, your nurse or Dr Scott Allison will prepare the treatment area by cleaning it to ensure proper hygiene.

Using a fine needle or a cannula, the injector will carefully inject the jaw filler into the predetermined areas of the jawline. The injector will strategically place the filler according to the details on your personalised treatment plan.

Throughout the procedure, the injector may communicate with you to support your comfort levels and to evaluate the progress of the treatment. They will carefully monitor the injection sites and adjust the technique accordingly. After the injections are complete, the injector may massage the treated area to ensure proper distribution of the filler.

The duration of the actual treatment session can vary. In general, the jaw filler procedure typically takes about 15 to 30 minutes.

As for comfort levels, depending on the specific injection site, a numbing gel may be applied to aid in comfort during the procedure. Certain jaw fillers incorporate a local anaesthetic that begins immediately after administering injections. The injections themselves typically produce only a mild sensation of pinching or stinging.

Recovery and aftercare

The recovery period associated with dermal fillers is minimal, although some bruising or swelling may occur. These effects typically subside within a few days. Any residual discomfort can be alleviated by taking mild pain medication.

Following your filler treatment, avoiding applying makeup for at least four hours is advisable. For the next 24 hours, it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise, and swimming should be avoided for a week. We recommend avoiding consuming alcohol for 24 hours after the fillers, as it may increase the likelihood of bruising.

Dermal fillers can last anywhere from six to 18 months, depending on factors such as the injection site, individual metabolism, and the type of filler used. Results can be long-lasting, but maintenance treatments will be required.

Possible side effects

When administered by qualified nurses and doctors, dermal fillers offer an effective treatment option. Although there is minimal downtime following the procedure, it is normal to experience temporary swelling and redness, which typically diminishes within a few days. Discolouration, minor bleeding, or bruising are also commonly observed. While improper injection into a blood vessel can potentially lead to severe complications, a thorough understanding of facial anatomy and proficient injection techniques can lower such risks. In the rare occurrence of incorrect filler placement, immediate and secure dissolution can be achieved through an injection of hyaluronidase.

Costs of jaw fillers at Ascension

At Ascension, we tailor our treatments to match your facial structure and desired outcome. Since we don’t use a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, pricing can differ depending on the unique treatment plan we create during your consultation. For a pricing guide.

Our treatments are customised to align with your facial structure and desired goals. We believe in avoiding a generic approach, meaning pricing can vary based on the individualised treatment plan developed during your consultation.

One significant factor of the treatment plan that can influence costs is the quantity of filler used. The amount of filler needed can vary based on individual anatomy and the patient’s specific goals.
In cases where extensive jawline changes are the goal, a larger volume of filler may be necessary, which can impact the overall cost of the treatment.

The treatment plan, including the quantity and type of filler recommended, will be discussed thoroughly during your consultation and used to provide you with a personalised quote.
