Jaw Line Augmentation

Jaw Line Augmentation

A well-defined and shaped jawline beautifully frames facial features.

Perception of beauty is subjective and throughout time the ideals of beauty change. Men like to have a stronger, square-shaped jaw. Women prefer a slimmer, V-shaped face, although in recent years the requests from female patients to have Angelina Jolie’s well-defined jawline are not abating.

Aging causes loss of collagen and changes in bone mass which alters the angle of the jawline, resulting in a jowly, weak jawline.

Sometimes an overly developed lower face is not genetic but the result of TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder), or due to large masseter muscles that are located at the edge of the jawbone. Another condition that causes enlarged masseter muscles is bruxism – habitual grinding or clenching teeth.

Regardless of whether you prefer a V-shaped or square-shaped jawline or simply want more jawline definition, we have a solution for you.

To attain a v-shaped jawline and slim down the bulging masseter muscles, neuromodulators are injected into the masseter muscles on either side of the face. Aside from the cosmetic effect of the slimmed jawline, the injected neuromodulators may decrease the tension caused by the facial muscles stressing the TMJ joint in patients with TMJ syndrome.

Duration of the procedure is about 15min. Results of facial contouring are visible in 2 weeks.

Longevity of the results varies from 3-9 months depending on your body’s response.

For those who would like to strengthen and contour the jawline and chin, the affordable injectable fillers RESTYLANE or JUVEDERM may provide you with the results you want with no downtime after treatment. The procedure lasts 20-30 min. The results last from 6-12 months depending on the filler of choice and your body’s response.

Only licensed and certified professionals are to be trusted with this treatment. Individual results may vary. Please call us for your free consultation
