Jaw Line Shaping
Well defined and shaped jawline beautifully frames facial features.
Perception of beauty is subjective and throughout the 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 jowly, week 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.
Whether you prefer V-shaped or square-shaped jawline or simply want a defined, flawlessly smooth jawline, there are highly effective non-surgical procedures to accomplish your desired goals.
For attaining v-shape jawline and slim down the bulging masseter muscles, neuromodulators – BOTOX, XEOMIN, DYSPORT are injected into the masseter muscles on either side of the face. Aside from the cosmetic effect of the slimmed jawline, patients with TMJ syndrome experience decreased tension caused by the facial muscles onto the TMJ joint as a result of the injected neuromodulators.
Duration of the procedure is about 15min. Results of facial contouring are visible in 2 weeks.
Longevity of the results varies from 3 months to 1 year depending on your body’s response.
For those who would like to strengthen and contour the jawline and chin, injectable fillers VOLUMA, RADIESSE or JUVEDERM are excellent options with excellent results, no downtime, affordable, with minimal side effects. The procedure lasts 15-20 min. The results last from 1 to 2 years depending on the filler of choice and your body’s response.
