Jawlines are a facial feature you might have never thought about, but subtle tweaks to a jawline can dramatically change, define, and reverse-age a face. If you’ve ever noticed someone looking different—good different—but you can’t quite put your finger on why, it could very well be thanks to a non-surgical jaw treatment.
The jawline needs to appear in harmony with the mouth, chin, and neck, so a deep understanding and commitment to facial symmetry is key to sculpting a defined and taut jawline that fits naturally with the rest of the face as a whole.
We utilize several different treatments to target ageing or ill-defined jawlines, depending on the needs of our patients. Every treatment begins with a complimentary consultation to address the patient’s desired outcome, and from there, we work to find a treatment plan that best meets those expectations.
Treating the Jawline with Injectables
Injectables are a quick and effective way to sculpt the jawline. By adding volume to specific areas, angles can be accentuated to create the desirable “chiselled” jaw while ageing skin is restored to its fuller appearance. Treatments occur over the course of weeks to months in order to achieve a gradual, natural-looking shift.
One of our most popular jawline injectables is RADIESSE® and RADIESSE®+. They are the first and only calcium hydroxylapatite injectables. Calcium hydroxylapatite, or CaHA, stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin, providing immediate and long-term results.
Using Neuromodulators to Define Jawlines
Botox is a unique treatment for defining jawlines. Similarly to its usage firming muscles elsewhere in the face to prevent fine lines and wrinkles, Botox prevents the muscles around the jaw from contracting. Over time, the muscle weakens and softens. As the muscles under the skin change shape, so does the jawline. It’s truly an art form!
Tightening Skin Along the Jawline with Radio Frequency
If needles make your knees weak, Radio Frequency Therapy is a great non-invasive approach to tightening and smoothing skin. Radio frequency heats the dermis (the deep layer of your skin) up to 50–75°C, which activates the release of “heat-shock” proteins (these proteins are created when cells encounter high stress environments, and are known to perform “chaperone functions” aiding in the repair and creation of new proteins) and stimulates collagen production. Radio frequency therapy can work in tandem with injectables or on its own, and has little to no side effects. Most patients report only mild and temporary redness and tingling, which is easily calmed with ALASTIN Regenerating Skin Nectar.
Natural Treatments to Help Define Your Jawline
Along with the non-invasive treatments shared above, incorporating facial yoga and lymphatic drainage massage to your regular skin care ritual can help treat areas of over-fullness or weakening skin. Facial yoga can help build muscle to further define your jawline, and just like a regular yoga practice for the body, it keeps the muscles toned and “limber” (read: youthful!). Lymphatic drainage massage reduces inflammation and naturally stimulates the circulation of oxygen-rich blood to the face and jaw, resulting in healthier, glowing skin.
Knowing the treatment options available to you is important for understanding the process and what you can expect, but only a professional can make objective recommendations on what treatment plan is best to achieve the results you’d like to see.
