Using Filler for Jawline Definition: One of the rapidly growing trends in dermatology and the field of facial enhancements is the use of fillers for enhancing the contour and definition of the jawline. This non-surgical procedure offers a swift and effective way to rejuvenate the face, combat signs of aging, and create a more sculpted appearance. By creating a more defined jawline, not only can you look younger, but can improve a more balanced look creating a more attractive facial contour. Both men and women of any age are good candidates for jawline fillers.
The procedure entails the precise injection of fillers into targeted areas along the jawline. After cleaning and possibly applying a topical anesthetic to the treatment area, Dr. Rokhsar uses a fine needle or cannula to introduce the filler beneath the skin. The objective is to add volume, smooth out irregularities, and accentuate the natural jawline. Oftentimes, Dr Rokhsar only uses some ice for the injections without the need for any anesthetic creams. The results are seen immediately. Many fillers including Restylane and Juvederm can be used for facial jawline contouring. One of Dr. Rokhsar’s favorite fillers for the jawline, remains Radiesse. Radiesse, having a thicker consistency, can give a more chiseled look as well as create a more defined jawline compared to other fillers. Make sure you see an expert board certified dermatologist for your jawline filler injections, as Radiesse injections for the jawline require skill and experience.
