Why Is a Contoured Jawline Important to Your Overall Facial Complexion?
A contoured and defined jawline is an essential aspect of the overall facial complexion as it helps to define and enhance all of the natural features of the face. A strong, chiseled jawline can help balance the face and create a more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing appearance. It can also make a face look slimmer and more toned. Additionally, a contoured jawline can help to reduce the appearance of jowls and sagging skin around the lower face, which are common signs of aging.
Achieving a contoured jawline through cosmetic procedures such as buccal fat removal or jawline fillers can enhance one’s overall facial complexion and contribute to a more confident and youthful appearance. In addition, when a patient undergoes treatment for their jawline, they not only see amazing results in that specific area of the face but in other areas aswell, including the chin, neck, cheeks, and overall lift of the face.
Surgical and Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring Treatments
Now, let’s talk about the various treatment options available to contour the jawline and reduce the negative signs of aging. At Many Faces of Chicago, you can choose from a list of top cosmetic enhancement therapies, either non-invasive, minimally-invasive, or invasive.
Buccal Fat Removal for Jawline Contouring
Buccal fat pads lay deep within the skin on each side of the face, which makes a face look “chubby” or more of a “chipmunk” appearance. These enlarged fat pads are generally caused by genetics and, unfortunately, cannot be reduced by regular exercise or dieting. During a regular buccal fat procedure, the surgeon will make small incisions inside the cheek and gently apply force to make the buccal fat visible. They will then remove the desired amount of fat precisely and repeat the process on the other side before closing the incisions with dissolvable sutures.
However, Dr. Caughlin goes above and beyond by taking additional steps to achieve even greater definition and tightening for his patients. In addition to removing the buccal fat, he removes the intraoral mucosa, which is the tissue you bite within your cheeks. By removing between 1 to 2 centimeters of this mucosa, he further enhances the definition of the jawline. Dr. Caughlin also takes a few strips of the buccinator muscle, which lies deep within the cheeks and the buccal fat pads. This additional step helps to achieve even more definition and tightening for a more sculpted and contoured jawline.
Dermal Fillers and Neurotoxin Injections for Jawline Sculpting
If you are searching for a less invasive, non-surgical approach to sculpting your jawline, dermal fillers and neurotoxin injections may be right. They provide temporary results but allow patients to quickly get results without having to take time away from work or other important responsibilities due to long and painful recovery times. Some of the leading dermal fillers and neurotoxin injections available for jawline contouring include:
- Juvederm Voluma: A hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that is FDA-approved for restoring mid-face volume and augmenting the chin and jawline area.
- Radiesse: A calcium hydroxylapatite-based dermal filler that is FDA-approved for facial contouring and can add volume and definition to the jawline.
- Sculptra: A poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that stimulates collagen production and can be used to add volume and improve the appearance of the jawline.
- Botox: A neurotoxin injection that can be used to relax the masseter muscles responsible for chewing and help slim the jawline.
- Dysport: A neurotoxin injection that can be used to relax the masseter muscles and improve the appearance of the jawline.
- Xeomin: A neurotoxin injection that can be used to reduce the size of the masseter muscles and improve the overall appearance of the jawline.
Energy-Focused Treatments for Jawline Sculpting
Achieving a sculpted and defined jawline is a popular aesthetic goal for many people, and energy-focused treatments are quickly gaining popularity as a non-invasive option for jawline sculpting. These treatments use different types of energy, such as ultrasound, radiofrequency, or laser. Favored treatments include:
A cosmetic treatment that utilizes radiofrequency energy to encourage the production of collagen, resulting in more taut and youthful skin as well as a better defined jawline. By using a compact device, the energy is transmitted into the skin surrounding the jawline.
A technique that employs ultrasound technology for liposuction to target and break down fat cells in a selective manner. This is supplemented by Renuvion, also known as J-Plasma, which harnesses radiofrequency energy and helium plasma to enhance skin tightness and overall texture and tone.
Uses radiofrequency energy to firm and refine the skin’s texture and tone. A small probe delivers the energy to the skin’s deeper layers, promoting collagen production, which results in firmer and smoother skin.
