Who doesn’t love a strong, sculpted jawline and a perfectly proportioned chin? Everyone, right?! And, whilst many believe such features are purely natural and gifted by the God’s to the “special ones”, there is a pretty simple and non-invasive procedure you can undergo that can make your jawline and/or chin look sharper and more defined. Whilst many of you might know a lot about lip filler, the same kind of filler can actually be used on a lot of other areas which you might not be aware of! Indeed, dermal filler can now be used to treat smile and laugh lines and enhance the appearance of your cheekbones, chin, jawline and even your nose! This blog post is going to focus on jawline and chin filler and how using dermal filler on these areas can help you achieve the super-sculpted face you’ve always dreamed of.
What actually is Jawline and/or Chin Filler and How Does it Work?
Interestingly, both jawline and chin filler procedures involve injecting dermal filler into the face in order make the treated area look slimmer and more structured. The type of substance that usually makes up dermal filler is called Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced by the body which synchronises with skin tissue, giving it a fuller, firmer and rejuvenated appearance. Hyaluronic acid is an aesthetic favourite because it consistently produces natural-looking and long-lasting results.
- How does chin filler work?
A number of people believe their chin is too small, too weak or undefined in comparison to the rest of their face. Hyaluronic Acid based dermal filler can be used to rectify some of these issues and add structure to the chin area. An aesthetic practitioner can inject dermal filler into the chin in order to lengthen or contour it, helping to give it perfect proportion. Dermal filler can also be used to move the chin upwards or downwards to improve facial symmetry.
- How does jaw filler work?
A strong jawline is often considered one of the most attractive and striking features of a person’s face. Many people, however, feel they have an underdeveloped or weak jawline. This is especially true for older people who often experience a loss of bone density and skin elasticity as part of the ageing process. Dermal filler is one of the best substances that can help improve the appearance of a person’s jawline. It can be injected into the area to plump the skin and help reduce the look of a sagging jawline to create a stiffer, more defined structure. When administered by a skilled and qualified technician, jawline filler can dramatically improve the appearance of a person’s face which can help massively with self-confidence!
What Can I Expect from a Jawline and/or Chin Filler Procedure?
Whilst every dermal filler practitioner will perform a jawline/chin filler procedure differently, there are a few basic steps that most technicians take during the process. Firstly, every client should have a detailed consultation with their practitioner before any dermal filler is injected into the face. This should give you the opportunity to explain exactly what kind of results you want to achieve and to tell your practitioner about any pre-existing medical issues you might have. This will then allow your technician to decide how much filler should be injected into the desired area in a safe and measured way. Some aesthetic artists will use numbing cream to make the process more comfortable. After your consultation is over and the product has (or has not) been applied, then it’s time to start the process of sculpting your perfect chin and/or jawline. This is the part where you lie back and let your practitioner take over. Depending on what results you want to achieve and what pace your technician works at, the procedure could take up to an hour.
Does Jawline/Chin Filler Hurt?
Everybody reacts differently to pain, making the question ‘does jawline/chin filler hurt?’ a difficult one to answer! For some people, there is no pain at all. For most, however, the experience of having jawline/chin filler injected is more of an uncomfortable/strange feeling rather than outright painful. For those who have a lower pain tolerance, do not fear because most dermal filler products are infused with a substance called Lidocaine which helps make the procedure smoother and less painful!
Are There any Dangerous Side Effects of Jawline/Chin Filler?
Jawline and chin filler procedures are actually very low-risk because most filler products are made of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance we already have in our body. This means the risk of reaction to dermal filler is very small. Straight after your procedure you will probably experience a number of side effects including redness, bruising and swelling but these should subside after a few days. However, if you experience any of the more serious side effects listed below, you must contact your technician or GP immediately:
- Leakage/movement of filler.
- Inflammation of the skin.
- Injured and/or damaged blood vessels.
- Blocked arteries that could lead to either blindness and/or tissue necrosis.
Jawline/Chin Filler Aftercare
Most people want to know how they can look after their jawline/chin filler to keep their newly contoured face looking flawless! Jawline and chin filler are actually very low-maintenance. How long the treated area retains its shape for is greatly affected by genetic factors (such as how much elasticity a person already has in their skin). There are, however, some lifestyle choices clients can make to keep their filler looking fresh and fabulous. These include:
- Avoid touching the treated area for at least six hours post-procedure.
- Sleep on your back during the night after your procedure.
- Avoid intense heat or intense cold for at least a week post-procedure.
- Avoid strenuous activity for at least a week to ensure you don’t pick up any infections.
- Avoid drinking alcohol immediately after the procedure as it can increase bruising and swelling of the treated area.
How Long Does Jawline/Chin Filler Last?
Jawline and chin filler can maintain its shape and density for any amount of time from 6 months to 24 months, depending on the person. When you begin to see your filler fading, you can often contact your technician to organise a filler “boost” which means you can just add a small amount of filler to the area you want made more structured, firmer or fuller. On the other hand, if you are not happy with the results from your dermal filler procedure, you have the option of having it dissolved by a trained aesthetic practitioner. This process is non-invasive and involves injecting a substance called Hyaluronidase into the treated area which acts to counter and reverse the effects of Hyaluronic Acid. This can end up costing a lot of money though, so make sure you do your research and choose a certified and skilled technician before booking in for any dermal filler appointments!
