Jaw enhancement injections are a quick, non-invasive way to improve your jaw line. If you feel that your jaw line lacks definition or has started to sag because of weight loss or ageing you may want to consider jaw enhancement treatment.
An injectable jaw enhancement uses dermal fillers. Several kinds of injectable filler products are commonly used for jaw enhancement. Fillers come in either; non-permanent, permanent or semi permanent; the most common is the non-permanent primarily because its effects are temporary and reversible.
During your treatment small volumes of filler gel are injected at multiple places along the jawline. This process changes the contours of the area by filling in the skin from the inside out. The end result is a jawline that looks well defined. Injections of dermal filler can help to plump loose skin hanging from the jaw line, making the area look rejuvenated and youthful.
The jaw enhancement procedure takes about 30 minutes. As soon as the procedure is finished, patients can leave our clinic straight after and return to their daily activities. Patients should avoid rubbing or touching their jaw for several days, and sleep with their head and neck elevated.
Gradually, the body absorbs the injected substance, and the jaw returns to its pre-treatment appearance. Many patients return for repeat visits to preserve the look of their new jawline.
These factors generally define good candidates for jaw injectable:
Dermal filler injections are less invasive and safer than cosmetic surgeries, but they still come with a degree of risk. In rare cases bleeding and infection can occur.
The most common side effects of the procedure are mild redness and swelling around the injection site, but these side effects often subside in a few days.
