Clients increasingly become conscious of their chin and jawline as they age. The changes caused by the ageing process, with loss of collagen and elasticity of the skin, can lead to a saggy appearance. Surgery, including a facelift, may have been the only option in the past and viewed by many as an extreme procedure.
The advent of injectables, including Botox and premium dermal fillers, now means patients can undergo anti-ageing facial treatments without the cost and downtime associated with surgery.
A weak and regressed chin can be a source of disquiet for many, especially when viewed from a side-on position. It tends to stand out, largely as it is not in proportion with the rest of the face. Our highly skilled doctors can inject premium dermal filler and mould into a position that compliments the natural contours of the face. Results typically last 18-24 months with no downtime.
Botox can also be used to reduce the appearance of a cobbled, bump chin known as peau d’orange. By injecting a neuroprotein that temporarily paralyses the muscles, a smoother more even appearance of the chin can be achieved.
Advanced filler can also be used to treat a sagging jawline, especially jowls, by replacing volume loss with a high density filler. A smoother, more contoured jawline can also be created using Botox injections to treat the platysmal neck muscle which contribute to a sagging jawline by pulling the face down.
Teeth grinding can also lead to a square jaw due to the overuse of the masseter muscles. This may masculine the female face. Botox can be used to correct this by temporarily paralysing the masseter muscles, softening the angle of the jaw and restoring the inverted triangle that is associated with a youthful face.
