There are a number of defining facial characteristics that are associated with youth. Full cheeks, smooth skin and plump lips being the most obvious. Another area that we are frequently consulted about is the jawline. As we age changes in the shape of the lower jaw, combined with loose skin from the mid-face create a blunting of the sharp jawline associated with youth.
What can be done to improve my jawline?
Because there are multiple changes that contribute to the change in jawline shape with age, sometimes multiple forms of treatment are required to get the best result. For early changes, we can often improve the appearance with simple injections of dermal fillers in the correct areas to correct and camouflage, recreating a sharper jawline. For more moderate changes we may also consider combining dermal fillers in the midface, to lift the facial skin and jowl, as well as Botulinum Toxin injections into specific areas in the neck, to reduce the downwards pull. For more advanced ageing changes a lower facelift would be recommended to lift and reposition the skin in the area.
