Cheekbone and Jawline Sculpting: A non-surgical approach to facial contouring
Non-surgical facial contouring is a fast way to enhance the look of your cheekbones and jawline. It is perfect for a candidate whose jawline lacks definition or whose face is beginning to sag due to aging or weight loss.
When it comes to defining facial contours, fillers are a great way to reverse the signs of aging. Fillers can address mid-face volume loss and lower facial contouring.
Patients who come in for facial contouring are typically concerned with the shape of their profile or feel that their face is not as defined as they’d like. Patients also seek facial contouring if they feel their face is not symmetrical.
A simple procedure using injectable fillers can correct these areas with minimal complications.
Botox and Voluma Injections for Facial Reshaping
A jaw and cheekbone enhancement treatment uses injections of dermal fillers. Several types of injectable filler products are commonly used for jaw enhancement, but at Bellissimo Plastic Surgery & Medi Spa, we use Voluma and Juvederm.
Botox can be used to relax jaw muscles while a dermal filler is used to add volume and definition. Most patients will require follow up treatments to maintain a continual effect. Patients are able to notice visible results immediately, but can experience the full benefit of the procedure after one week. These injections last about 8-12 months.
The entire procedure lasts about 30 minutes.
Recovery time and how long it will last
Prior to the procedure, we apply a topical numbing cream to the area where our provider will administer the injectable. This will prevent any major discomfort during the treatment. Injection sites may vary depending on the desired results.
There is virtually no downtime afterward. Patients can expect a very quick appointment so they can feasibly return to work once the treatment is complete. Mild swelling and bruising can occur. Most swelling and redness resolves within the first 24 to 48 hours.
