A common complaint amongst people as they age is about the look of their jawline. From loose skin and chin dimpling to a receding chin, there are several conditions that can affect the overall look of your jawline. The board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego have a variety of injectable filler treatments available to sculpt and shape the jawline to give you the look you desire.
If you are just starting to notice the beginning signs of loose skin around the neck and jawline, facial filler injections in San Diego may be able to help. By replacing lost volume in specific areas of the face and jawline, the skin of the jawline and neck will be lifted slightly. Both hyaluronic acid gel fillers like Restylane and Perlane, and collagen stimulators like Radiesse and Sculptra work well for volume loss causing a sagging jawline.
Many people are troubled by the dimpled and/or wrinkled appearance of their chin. Chin dimpling, creases, and wrinkles can be temporarily corrected with dermal filler injections. Dermal filler will fill in the area of the crease, wrinkle, or dimple and smooth out the chin. A combination treatment using a facial filler and Botox may also be a good option if the dermatologist feels relaxing the underlying muscle with Botox will help smooth out the area.
Receding Chin / Weak Jawline
If you are unhappy with your jawline because of a receding chin, or weak chin, you may benefit from a non-invasive chin augmentation using filler injections. Our injectable experts can use a combination of fillers to sculpt, shape, and enhance the chin to create your desired jawline. Depending on your specific case, the doctor may recommend a hyaluronic acid filler, a collagen-stimulating filler, or fat grafting for a non-surgical chin augmentation, as all have proven effective in improving the appearance of a receding chin.
Facial fillers can also help create the look of a strong jaw. It is common for men to want a strong, sculpted jawline, so for those with a weak jawline, carefully placed filler injections can create the desired look. Our board-certified dermatologists will expertly sculpt your jawline into your desired contour using the filler they feel most appropriate.
Jawline Fillers Frequently Asked Questions
It is often difficult to navigate all of the information out there on facial fillers, so our doctors have compiled a list of answers to questions they are commonly asked about fillers for the jawline to help make this process easier for you. If you have any more questions, please contact our office.
Q: How long do facial filler injections last?
A: The length of time results last will vary from one patient to the next, but most patients experience results for around 6 months, sometimes up to one year. The beauty of injectable treatments is that the treatment can be repeated as soon as results begin to dissipate.
Q: How long does the filler treatment take?
A: Facial filler treatments are generally performed in short office visits, lasting between 20 and 40 minutes depending on the exact treatment. Many patients come in for treatment on their lunch break!
Q: What is the recovery time after facial filler injections?
A: Generally, there is no downtime after a filler injection. While each patient is different, most return to their normal activities right away. A procedure like fat grafting will require a little more downtime than fillers, however, it is minimal as fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure.
Q: What are the benefits of fillers for the jawline as compared to surgery?
A: Facial filler treatments provide a non-invasive, non-surgical way to get the jawline you desire. While results are temporary, there is no downtime and much lower chance of complications than with a jawline or chin augmentation surgery.
Q: What is the cost of filler injections?
A: The price of a filler treatment is going to depend on your treatment area and the amount of filler required. Each individual is different, so it is best to schedule a consultation to meet with one of our board-certified dermatologists so that they can create a treatment plan for you.
