The term Jawline, literally translated as lower jaw or chin contour, describes the line that draws our lower jaw and visually separates our face from the neck. To emphasize this has been a beauty trend for several years now. A clearly contoured face with corners and edges is not only considered aesthetically attractive, but also youthful and fresh.
The Sacking Effect
That this is so is hardly surprising, since the chin line changes in the course of a lifetime. In the course of the natural skin aging process, the connective tissue loses its firmness and the skin as a whole loses moisture and firmness, the face has less volume, existing fatty tissue sinks to the bottom. Experts speak of the so-called “sacking effect”, as a result of which the lower half of the face can become a problem zone. This is when the transition from the neck to the face becomes blurred, drooping cheeks change your silhouette or you can no longer find your chin when looking in the mirror. In plastic terms, the contour of a face changes over the years from a V-shape to an A-shape.
Hyaluronic acid fillers in aesthetic medicine
Just a few years ago, only a surgical intervention was able to remedy this situation. Nowadays, thanks to the developments in aesthetic medicine, the correction of Jawline with hyaluronic acid fillers is a treatment method with few risks, which gives back its rough edges to more and more women and also men.
In Jawline Contouring the jaw-chin line is modeled by using hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is an endogenous substance that is responsible for the volume and freshness of the skin, but whose production decreases with age. By injecting hyaluronic acid fillers, the face is filled up, as the name suggests. This is also known as the padding effect, which helps to even out irregularities and provides the skin with moisture and volume.
The Jawline Contouring with hyaluronic acid fillers offers many possibilities. For example, the jaw-chin line can be injected with hyaluronic acid to accentuate it, compensate for irregularities and correct an unfavorably proportioned contour. Of course it is also possible to make a too hard jaw-chin line appear softer. Even drooping cheeks, which form because the fabric has lost structure, can be laminated with this method. With the skilful use of the filler, a receding chin can also be compensated, for this purpose structure is gently built up in the chin area.
However, the changes are always minimal. If these are carried out by an experienced doctor, the practitioner will always aim to compensate for irregularities without visible volume gain. The motto here is: small intervention, big effect.
Jawline contouring with long durability and rejuvenating effect
As many now know, hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body in a natural way. This process can also be induced artificially by injecting the enzyme hylase. Many hyaluronic acid fillers have a shelf life of 12-18 months, depending on their metabolism.
For Jawline Contouring, we at Dermacare use the product Ellansé, which is available in four different shelf lives, between one and four years. Ellansé is one of the latest generation of dermal fillers and is not only characterized by a good integration in the tissue, different and long shelf life, Ellansé also stimulates the body’s own production of collagen, which keeps our skin fresh and elastic. The filler therefore not only compensates for irregularities, it also supports the skin in its natural regeneration.
