Get The Perfect Jawline: Boss Injectables Guide To Jawline Filler

Thinking of getting Jawline Filler? Here at Boss Injectables, we’ve got all the information you’ll need before making the decision.

Jawline Fillers can be used for non-surgical augmentation and contouring of the jawline. Optimising the jawline with dermal fillers helps to create definition and structure in the lower third of the face.

At Boss Injectables, we use a hyaluronic acid filler for contouring the jawline. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and wears off over time. We can use it in a variety of ways across the face to achieve the desired look.

Who can get Jawline Fillers?

Jawline Fillers are recommended to both male and female, younger and more mature positive agers. For the younger client it may be the case of increasing jaw definition to enhance natural features. For positive agers it may be to lift the lower face and minimise jowling. For weight loss clients it may be to restore lost volume and reduce sagging skin. It is also possible to correct asymmetries. Male clients may wish to create a wider-set or more masculine and chiselled jawline while our female clients may wish to accentuate their jawlines for glamorisation.

What happens to our jawline as we age?

As we age, we lose bone density within the mandible (jawbone), therefore losing structural support in the lower face, the fat pads descend to the chin area causing jowling, this causes us to lose our jawline definition. We also lose collagen and elastin in the skin causing the lower face to age further. This can all improved with the use of dermal fillers to give back structure, support and hydration to the jawline and therefore lower face.

What does the Jawline Filler treatment involve?

Before we begin, we take your full medical history, discuss your concerns and complete a thorough assessment of your face. We will then discuss your treatment options, costing and answer any questions you may have. We will take photographs for our records and also for you to look back on and compare results after the treatment. We will then discuss possible side effects and risks and complete a consent form with you.

After thoroughly cleansing the face we will mark up the injections points and prepare your filler. Our registered cosmetic nurse will then inject the area using a needle and/or cannula depending on the desired outcome. The placement of the injections will vary depending on your facial shape and the look you are trying to achieve. The treatment only takes around 20 to 30 minutes depending on how many mls you require. We will then discuss aftercare and answer any further questions.

Is getting Jawline Fillers painful?

Overall, most clients find jawline fillers to be quite bearable with some occasional discomfort. We use a mixture of needle and cannula techniques in the jawline and therefore it does not require as many injections as the lips or even cheeks.  If you are feeling apprehensive, we can use a topical numbing cream on the skin surface before injecting. There is also a local numbing agent in the dermal filler, this works under the skin to numb the entire area as treatment proceeds.

How long do Jawline Fillers last?

Under manufacturers guidelines and past experience, we generally see Jawline fillers last between 12 and 18 months and sometimes up to 24 months. This varies between individuals depending on their metabolism and lifestyle factors. Due to the type of dermal filler used in the jawline we are able to achieve better longevity than that seen in the lips. We recommend attending a consult after 12-18 months to discuss re-treatment to maintain desired results. In some cases, if you re-treat sooner, such as after 12 months, you may require less volume to achieve the same result as the first time.

Is there downtime for Jawline Fillers?

There are a few possible side effects post treatment including redness, swelling, discomfort and bruising at the treatment site and these usually resolve within a week or so. It is also possible to get some small lumps, these should resolve after a few weeks. Is it therefore recommended to complete any dermal filler treatments 2 to 4 weeks before any events. There is also a rare possibility that a small blood vessel may get blocked causing pain, coldness, numbing and discoloration to the site, if this occurs you must contact the clinic immediately and return for dissolving of the filler. If you have any concerns, please contact us for advice.

What is the aftercare for Jawline Fillers?

Post Jawline Fillers, you should ensure you remain upright for the next 4 hours and do not apply any pressure to the treatment area. You should also avoid touching or rubbing the treated area for 4 hours. It is best to avoid excessive heat or cold, strenuous exercise or alcohol as these activities can increase your risk of bruising. It is also important to avoid microdermabrasion, laser or chemical peels for 2 weeks.

How much do Jawline Fillers cost?

At Boss Injectables, Jawline Fillers are $479 per ml. Most clients get good jawline sculpting results with the use of 1ml to 2mls of dermal filler per side of the jawline. However, especially with positive agers, it may be necessary to use more, that is why it is important to have a complimentary consultation and discuss a treatment plan that you are happy with.

What are the most popular Cosmetic Treatments for Men?

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are the most commonly requested cosmetic treatment for men. Often men wish to reduce and soften lines and wrinkles without completely getting rid of them. This allows for some natural facial expression and a smoother, less tired overall appearance to the face. The most treated areas for men are forehead, frown and smile lines (crow’s feet).

Jawline Filler

Jawline filler is a popular treatment area for men who lack a naturally chiselled jawline or have lost bone structure as they age. Dermal fillers placed along the jawline, help to provide a strong and masculine appearance.

Chin Filler

Men commonly request chin filler in order to achieve a stronger, more masculine chin. In some cases the patient is born with a narrower or receded chin or they may simply be losing bone structure as they age. Either way, the most simple way to combat these issues are with a dermal chin filler, as it is non-surgical and requires minimal to zero down time while creating or restoring masculinity.

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)

Excessive sweating of the underarms is particularly common in the male population, making it a popular treatment for men. It is possible to stop the overactivity of the sweat glands for up to 9 months by injecting them with anti-wrinkle injections at a higher dose.

The Role of Prevention – Static vs Dynamic Lines

Wrinkles and fine lines are often among the earliest and most visible signs of aging, prompting many individuals to seek cosmetic treatments for a more youthful appearance. Understanding the types of wrinkles and how they form is crucial for effective prevention and treatment. Two main categories of wrinkles exist: static and dynamic lines. Each type has distinct characteristics and requires specific approaches for prevention and management. This article explores the differences between static and dynamic lines and highlights the role of prevention in maintaining youthful skin.

Understanding Static and Dynamic Lines

Dynamic Lines

Dynamic lines are the result of repeated facial muscle movements, such as smiling, frowning, or squinting. These lines appear when the muscles contract and disappear or diminish when the muscles are at rest. Over time, as the skin loses its elasticity, dynamic lines can become more permanent and evolve into static lines.

Common Areas Affected by Dynamic Lines

  1. Forehead: Horizontal lines caused by raising the eyebrows.
  2. Between the Eyebrows: Vertical lines, often called frown lines or “11s.”
  3. Around the Eyes: Crow’s feet, which appear when squinting or smiling.
  4. Mouth Area: Smile lines or nasolabial folds.

Static Lines

Static lines, on the other hand, are visible even when the face is at rest. These lines are caused by a combination of factors including the natural aging process, loss of collagen and elastin, and environmental damage such as sun exposure and smoking. Static lines represent a more permanent change in the skin’s structure.

Common Areas Affected by Static Lines

  1. Cheeks: Lines and sagging due to collagen breakdown.
  2. Neck: Horizontal lines and loss of firmness.
  3. Around the Mouth: Permanent folds and wrinkles that deepen over time.
  4. Under the Eyes: Wrinkles and bags due to skin thinning and loss of elasticity.

The Importance of Prevention

Prevention plays a critical role in managing both static and dynamic lines. While it is challenging to completely avoid the natural aging process, there are several strategies to minimise the appearance of wrinkles and maintain youthful skin for as long as possible.

Preventing Dynamic Lines

The key to preventing dynamic lines is to reduce the repetitive muscle movements that contribute to their formation. Here are some effective prevention strategies:

Regular Use of Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Anti-wrinkle injections: Treatments like Botox work by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for dynamic lines. Regular use can prevent these lines from deepening and becoming static wrinkles.

Proper Skincare Routine

Moisturising and hydrating: Keeping the skin well-hydrated helps maintain its elasticity and resilience, reducing the impact of facial movements on wrinkle formation.

Sun Protection: Daily use of broad-spectrum sunscreen protects the skin from harmful UV rays that can accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin, which are crucial for maintaining skin elasticity.

Avoiding Excessive Facial Movements

Be mindful of repetitive facial expressions and consider wearing sunglasses to reduce squinting, which can contribute to crow’s feet around the eyes.

Preventing Static Lines

Preventing static lines involves maintaining the skin’s structure and protecting it from damage. Here are some key strategies:

Healthy Lifestyle Choices

Balanced diet: A diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals supports overall skin health and can slow down the aging process.

Hydration: Drinking plenty of water keeps the skin hydrated and helps maintain its elasticity.

Avoiding Smoking: Smoking accelerates the breakdown of collagen and elastin, leading to premature wrinkles and sagging skin.

Regular Skincare Treatments

Chemical peels and laser therapy: These treatments can help reduce the appearance of static lines by promoting collagen production and improving skin texture.

Retinoids: Topical retinoids can stimulate collagen production and improve skin cell turnover, which helps reduce the appearance of static lines.

Sun Protection

Consistent use of sunscreen and protective clothing can prevent sun damage, which is a major contributor to the formation of static lines. Regular use of sunscreens with at least SPF 30 can significantly reduce the risk of photoaging.

Combining Prevention Strategies

To effectively manage both static and dynamic lines, it is essential to combine prevention strategies. A comprehensive approach that includes skincare, healthy lifestyle choices, and targeted treatments can help maintain youthful and healthy skin.

Regular Professional Consultations

Regular visits to a skincare professional or dermatologist can help monitor your skin’s condition and make timely adjustments to your skincare regimen. Professional advice can ensure that you are using the right products and treatments for your skin type and concerns.

Personalised Skincare Plan

Developing a personalised skincare plan that addresses your specific concerns can optimise your skin’s health and appearance. This plan should include daily skincare routines, preventive measures, and professional treatments tailored to your skin’s needs.

Understanding the difference between static and dynamic lines is essential for effective wrinkle prevention and management. By adopting a proactive approach that includes proper skincare, healthy lifestyle choices, and professional treatments, you can minimise the appearance of wrinkles and maintain a youthful complexion. Prevention is the key to reducing the impact of aging on your skin, allowing you to enjoy smoother, more resilient skin for years to come. Whether you are dealing with dynamic lines or static wrinkles, the strategies outlined in this article can help you take control of your skin’s health and appearance.
