As we age upper and mid face volume loss occurs with fat descending into the lower face creating sagginess and jowls. The areas around the chin and jawline lose definition as your skin loses its elasticity. As well as reducing the apparent size of the jaw, we can use dermal fillers to add volume to create a refined contour. Fillers can be used directly in the chin and along the jawline to balance features and add definition, and indirectly in the cheekbone to lift the lower face and improve the appearance of jowls to redefine the jawline.
To appear more youthful and more sculpted, a chin & jawline reshaping procedure is equally as important as restoring volume and lift in the upper and mid face. It’s all about achieving facial harmony.
It can last up to 2 years, but since we are still ageing and the filler is gradually broken down it is advised to maintain this with “tweaks” or smaller amounts either once or twice a year.
