Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring and Chin Augmentation
Posted on September 18, 2020 by Dr. Blume in Blog
Whether you are looking to achieve a slimmer or balanced profile, jowl reduction, or chin augmentation, you can have a more aesthetically pleasing profile thanks to injectables like Radiesse and Juvederm Voluma. Chin and Jawline Contouring is newest area that the FDA has cleared for Juvederm Voluma. In the past, lips and cheeks got all of the love but 2020 is all about creating natural, balanced proportions, and chiseled jawlines. As we age the fat pads throughout the face start to dissipate and separate. This results in heaviness to the lower face and jawline. This pre-jowl sulcus or that sagging pooch along the jawline is an unwelcomed indicator of age. Whether genetics blessed you with a weak chin or the natural aging process has started to rob you of a once chiseled jawline, the Nurse Injectors at Blume Skin & Body can help you achieve the profile you desire. Changes to important structures in our face can begin as early as 35 (sometimes even younger if you are very athletic or have excessive sun damage.) Studies have shown that by the age of 35 we have already lost about 10% of the fat in our faces and we will continue to lose about 5-10% of our facial volume every 5-10 years. In addition to fat reduction and redistribution, we also lose collagen and elasticity which can result in thinner, looser skin. Bone resorption can also be an unpleasant side effect of aging, particularly in the jaw and chin. The end result being a tired, haggard looking upper face and sagging pre-jowls in the lower face.
By re-volumizing these important facial structures with dermal fillers we can effectively create a liquid face lift, with a more balanced, and desirable face shape, for men this could mean a more masculine and defined jawline and for women a heart shaped face which minimizes the nose and accentuates the eyes. A well-proportioned chin can reduce the appearance of an overpowering nose, create definition between the face and neck, bring the focus away from jowls or a down turned mouth while redirecting the focus back up to the eyes.
When choosing your Aesthetic Injector, please take into consideration that these treatments are not completely without risk, so make sure to choose someone who is licensed and has received advanced training. In addition to this, your injector needs to have an artistic eye, an understanding of balance and proportions, and excellent communication skills in order to assess your unique needs and ensure that your goals are being met and your expectations are realistic. Our Nurse Injectors at Blume Skin and Body are continuously studying and staying up on the latest techniques to ensure your safety and create the most beautiful, natural outcomes possible.
