Jawline

Jawline

Beauty comes in many forms, and a defined jawline lays the foundation for some of the most beautiful faces. Youthful faces tend to be smooth and well contoured. But age and environmental factors can soften the contours of our jawlines, leading to sagging and ‘jowling’.

The effects of ageing on the jawline

Natural compounds including collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin help to give young skin its full and firm appearance. From our twenties onwards, production of these compounds steadily decreases, leading to a loss of elasticity and firmness and the formation of wrinkles. At the same time, the loss of fat pads in the face can lead to a loss of volume, saggy skin and ‘jowling’ at the jawline. A gradual loss of bone as we age leads to a loss of contours and definition. Exposure to harsh sunlight has a cumulative effect that becomes especially apparent in the forties and fifties.

Aesthetic treatments for the jawline

Lifting-style dermal fillers are one potential treatment to improve the appearance of the jawline. They are typically used to provide shape, structure and definition to the jawline. When placed in the deeper layers of the skin, fillers provide a consistency that is soft and yet firm enough to provide and retain volume and shape. Lifting-style fillers may also be used in cases where an individual wishes to enhance their facial features to achieve an aesthetic goal.
