What Are the Benefits of Fillers for Jawline Contouring?

Cosmetic procedures to enhance the lower face are more popular than ever, including one of the newest options available:Juvederm Volux® for the jawline. Our New Jersey-based team at the Peer Group believes that the jaw is an essential, foundational feature that frames the face and provides balance. A chiselled jawline is associated with strength, power, confidence, and attractiveness, so it’s no surprise that a higher number of patients are seeking treatments to improve this area. Not to mention, while the jaw is often an overlooked feature when it comes to facial rejuvenation treatments, some of the most obvious signs of aging occur in this region.

Juvederm Volux® is a long-lasting hyaluronic acid facial filler recently approved by the FDA for treating moderate to severe loss of jawline definition in patients aged 21 and older. It has a variety of benefits for patients in many age ranges and with different goals, including:

Providing Better Balance for the Lower Face

The jawline and chin are important features that provide structure to the face, so enhancing them can greatly improve a person’s overall appearance. When injectors are assessing other facial features—like the eyes, nose, and lips—they usually take the jawline into consideration as well. Juvederm Volux® can improve the proportion and balance of the jawline with the rest of the face if the jaw is weak or the chin is recessed.

Adding Definition to the Jawline

Whether your jawline has never been well-defined to begin with or has lost some of its definition due to aging, this filler can add shape and improve the angle virtually right away. Juvederm Volux® is the most robust, cohesive filler in the collection and has an impressive lifting capacity.

Giving You an Idea of What Cosmetic Surgery Could Do

If you’re not quite ready for surgical options but want to know what enhancing your jawline could look like, Juvederm Volux® is a temporary filler that can give you a better idea of what to expect.

What Is the Lifespan of DAXXIFY™?

How long does DAXXIFY last? Our New Jersey-based team at The Peer Group knows that the longevity of results is a primary factor for making a decision about any treatment—and especially the newest botulinum toxin injectable.

DAXXIFY works very similarly to other botulinum toxin injectables that are used to soften dynamic facial wrinkles: It blocks certain signals from the nerves that tell facial muscles related to wrinkles to contract. When the facial muscles stay at rest, the skin won’t crease up as much and wrinkles won’t form or look as pronounced as they did before.

The FDA has approved DAXXIFY™ to treat moderate to severe frown lines.

Many patients are surprised to learn that DAXXIFY™ and other botulinum toxin injections, also referred to as neuromodulators, don’t work right away. In reality, it takes some time for the product to be absorbed into the muscle. Typically, patients notice the effects within a few days, but the maximum results appear within 10 to 14 days.

These treatments are incredibly effective, but it’s worth remembering that all botulinum toxin injections provide temporary results. Most types of neuromodulators last for three to four months. The results gradually wear off and patients need to get maintenance injections if they wish to preserve the results.

However, DAXXIFY is the only neuromodulator that can last for up to six months on average—and sometimes even up to nine months for some patients. The reason why it’s so long-lasting is because the neurotoxin is stabilized by Peptide Exchange Technology (PXT). The peptides boost the ability of the botulinum toxin to block muscles from contracting.

How often should you get DAXXIFY™ to maintain results? The answer will vary depending on your face, your age, and how pronounced your wrinkles are. Take note of when it begins to wear off after your first session and talk to our team about timing from there.
