Jaw enhancement

The jawline is a commonly overlooked area, but is of the utmost importance when it comes to balancing the upper, middle & lower thirds of the face for both men and women. Jawline filler can restore lost volume and add structural support to the cheek and chin area leading to a more structured aesthetic.

Jawline enhancements are generally performed in conjunction with upper face or cheek filler, and are often complemented by anti-wrinkle injections to relax some of the overactive muscles in the lower face.

What we can enhance

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.

For patients with a smaller lower face or a weak chin, this treatment can be transformational in balancing their side profile and overall facial aesthetic.

AGEING OF THE JAWLINE

As we age we loose bone from the jaw and get increased sagging of the fat pads which lead to jowls. This can be corrected with jawline filler to give a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

JAWLINE AFTER A FACELIFT

There can sometimes be a deformity near the ear following a facelift procedure. This can be gently corrected with jawline filler to give a more natural angle to the jaw and further enhance the results of the surgical procedure.

Dermal filler FAQs

What is dermal filler?

Dermal filler is a soft gel-like material commonly made from hyaluronic acid, a substance which is naturally found in our bodies. When injected under the skin, fillers instantly create volume, suppleness and smoothness. There are different forms of dermal fillers which we use for different treatments – firmer fillers are used for creating shape and structure, whereas softer fillers are used for skin hydration and blurring fine lines.

How long will it last?

Dermal fillers will last anywhere between 6-18 months depending on the location of the filler, your metabolism and the type of filler used.

Pain relief during procedure

Dermal fillers are considered to a relatively low-pain procedure. Depending on the area being injected (such as the lips), you may be treated with a numbing gel so the injections are as comfortable as possible. Some kinds of dermal filler contain local anaesthetic, which takes effect as soon as the injections are performed. The injections themselves usually only feel like a slight pinch or sting.

Possible side effects

In the right hands, dermal fillers are a very safe and effective treatment. While there’s no downtime after the procedure, you will likely experience some swelling and redness that will subside over the coming days. Discolouration, bleeding or bruising is also common. If incorrectly injected into a blood vessel, fillers can cause more serious complications, but knowledge of facial anatomy and expert injecting techniques heavily reduces the risk. In the rare event of incorrect filler placement, the filler can be immediately and safely dissolved with an injection of hyaluronidase.

Recovery

There is little downtime associated with dermal fillers, which is one of the reasons why it is such a popular treatment! Some bruising or swelling may be present, but this will disappear in the days following the procedure. Panadol will help alleviate any lingering pain.

Aftercare

After your filler treatment, do not apply makeup or lipstick for four hours afterwards. For the next 24 hours, avoid exercising, and do not swim for the next week. We also recommend avoiding alcohol for 24 hours after your fillers, as it can increase the chance of bruising.
