Non-Surgical Jawline Improvement – Patient 102
A woman in her mid 60’s who is bothered by an aged appearance of the jawline and nasolabial creases. She is shown before and again, 1 month after Botox to the frown lines ( the ‘11’s” , RHA 3 to the nasolabial creases and RHA 4 to the jawline.
Discussion: I see many patients who have started to lose their jawline. The best treatment is a facelift, but not everyone wants surgery. In my experience, thread lifts do not help significantly, nor do energy based devices that attempt to tighten the skin. But augmentation along the jaw line in front of and behind the jowl area can improve the jawline in a satisfactory way and the fillers here can last close to 2 years.
Non-Surgical Jawline Correction – Patient 101
A woman in her mid 50’s who is starting to lose her jawline but not yet ready for a facelift. In my experience energy based skin tightening devices and thread lifts have not been helpful for my patients. But just like NASHA fillers can help with volume loss in the cheeks, they can also help when placed in front of and behind the jowl to give a better jawline.
