Perfecting your jawline with Botox® and dermal fillers

A defined and well-shaped jawline is a feature which can mean all the difference between a balanced and not so balanced facial profile and projection. Some of us aren’t blessed with a perfect jawline and for some of us, the ageing process can bring problems in this area, such as a squaring of the face, due to cheek sagging or enlarged jaw muscles (teeth clenching and grinding can also cause this issue) as well as a loss of definition of the jaw area. From her clinics in South Woodford, Hatfield and Bishops Stortford, Dr Anita Dhunna helps patients to re-define and perfect their jawlines, for a more youthful and attractive facial profile, using injectable substances such as Botox® and dermal fillers.

How can I perfect my jawline using Botox® and dermal fillers?

Before we explore how Dr Anita Dhunna treats a jawline with Botox® and dermal fillers, it’s important to explain how these substances work. Botox® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a neurotoxin, which temporarily relaxes over-working facial muscles (including the masseter or jaw muscles). By injecting Botox® into the jaw muscles, the muscles relax, thus giving the muscles a ‘rest’ from working too hard in the jaw area and temporarily preventing issues such as Bruxism (teeth grinding). In turn, this means a slimmer jawline, giving a more balanced appearance to the entire face. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances which contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which is present in the skin in abundance when we are young, but depletes with age, leading to skin drying, sagging, hollows and lines. When injected in to the jawline, Dr Anita Dhunna can re-shape this area for a more contoured appearance. She may also decide to inject the upper cheeks, for a lifted effect, reducing the appearance of sagging cheeks – leading to jowls. This combined treatment can significantly improve the jawline, as well as assisting with the symptoms that come with Bruxism, such as headaches and even chipped teeth!

How do I know if I am suitable for Botox® and dermal fillers for the jawline?

Before any treatment to improve your jawline can be agreed upon, Dr Anita Dhunna will request that you attend a no obligation consultation, facial analysis and medical history check. It is at this initial meeting that the doctor will discuss the concerns that you have with your jawline, assess your facial appearance and profile and check your medical history, to ensure that a treatment using Botox® and dermal fillers will be both suitable and safe for you to undergo. When she is satisfied that she will be able to offer you the results you wish to achieve in a safe and ethical treatment, you can go ahead and book your treatment appointment.

Using only FDA approved dermal fillers like Juvederm Vycross”, when injected into the jawline, Dr Anita Dhunna can re-shape this area for a more contoured appearance.
