jawlines contouring in Edmonton

Jawline contouring in Edmonton

Jawline contouring is a technique for reshaping and defining the jawline. We provide a variety of jawline contouring techniques in Edmonton. People who wished to modify their jawline or face contouring used to have to undergo surgery. However, Surgery is often a costly, intrusive, and unpleasant treatment with a significant recovery period. Therefore, the good news is that non-invasive jawline reshaping methods can offer adequate results without causing discomfort or necessitating a protracted recovery time. These contouring techniques include:

The BOTOX® Injection for jawline contouring

For many years, BOTOX® (Botulinum toxin A) has been a cosmetic surgery industry superstar for the repair of creases and wrinkles. The toxin operates by relaxing the masseter muscle in the jaw, which is responsible for chewing. This simple operation is almost painless and needs very little recovery time. Moreover, the effects are nearly immediate, and they continue to improve after a few weeks.

When can we expect to see the results?

The results will be available in about a week and will improve over time. Four to six weeks after treatment, the best results will be seen. However, Botox can be used to contour the jawline for up to four months only.  The treatment relies on the masseter muscle relaxing, and any activity that works the muscle can reduce the treatment’s effectiveness. Chewing for extended periods of time, as well as any other activity that requires the lower jaw to move continuously, can have a negative impact on the results. Touch-up injections should be done at least twice a year to maintain optimal results.

What are the side effects?

The side effects of Botox for jawline contouring are the same as those of other Botox procedures. The following are examples of common side effects:

  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising



Fillers for Jawline Contouring

Dermal fillers that can be injected into the skin are effective for jawline contouring. Unlike Botox, which relaxes the jaw muscles, fillers add volume to sagging or drooping areas of the jawline and face.

How does filler work for jaw contouring?

Dermal fillers are used to fill in gaps in the face and jawline, making you appear fuller and more beautiful. For more satisfying and long-lasting results, this non-invasive procedure can be used alone or in conjunction with Botox.

What are the types of dermal fillers?

There are various types of fillers; some dermal filler injections, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are made of hyaluronic acid gel. Sculptra and Radiesse are two fillers that act as collagen stimulators.

How should use fillers for jawline contouring?

Dermal fillers are ideal for people who have a sagging, receding, or genetically weak jawline. It is also suitable for patients with dimpling, a sagging jawline, creases, wrinkles, or lines.

How long before I see results

Injections of dermal filler for jawline contouring produce immediate results. The results are immediately visible after the procedure, which takes less than 45 minutes. However, the results are not permanent and are usually only effective for 6-24 months.

Is the fillers injection for jawline contouring painful?

The needle may cause some discomfort as it enters your skin, but the procedure is generally painless. This is due to the fact that the area around the jaw is less sensitive, and most dermal fillers have anaesthetic properties.

Ultherapy and Fotona for Jawlines

Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure that tightens the skin using ultrasound technology. This non-invasive treatment is effective for contouring the jawline by tightening the skin around the area. It can also revitalize skin on the chest, face, sternum and more. 

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy is an abbreviation for ultrasound therapy. It works by concentrating ultrasound energy on the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Collagen is the protein that gives skin its firmness and suppleness. As we age, our bodies ability to produce collagen decreases, resulting in saggy skin, wrinkles, and lines.

When will I see the results?

Ultherapy requires time to work because it stimulates the body to produce collagen. You can start seeing results three months after the treatment because the body requires time to produce significant amounts of collagen.

Is Ulthera for Jawline contouring painful?

Ultherapy is not painful; however, you may experience tingling during treatment and a slight puffiness afterward. Numbness, swelling, and inflammation are all possible side effects. Ultherapy helps firm the skin around the jawline by tightening it. It provides excellent results for sagging, drooping, and other age-related facial issues. Two to three sessions are sufficient for peak performance. However, maintenance sessions may be required to maintain your skin’s improved collagen production.

PDO threads for Jawline contouring

Another non-surgical jawline contouring technique is a minimal-invasive procedure that uses PDO or polydioxanone threads. The PDO thread procedure is a skin lift treatment that helps correct saggy skin for a firmer and sharper jawline.

What does the PDO thread procedure involve?

The PDO thread lift procedure involves inserting small threads into the skin at strategic points with extremely fine needles or cannulas to provide an instant lift. A session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area and the number of threads required. PDO thread lifting is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a local anesthetic to numb the target areas. You may feel some discomfort during the session, but new techniques continue to reduce the pain patients feel during the procedure.

The PDO thread acts as a collagen stimulator, promoting the body’s natural ability to produce the substance over time. The body will absorb the threads within 12 months of the procedure, and collagen production will continue to keep the skin firm and supple.

Effects of PDO thread lift on Jawline contoruing

This procedure has three main effects on the body including:

  • Mechanical skin lifting provides instant results
  • Collagen stimulation which promotes cellular rejuvenation
  • Neovascularization for improved skin texture, elasticity, and fine lines.

Side effects of PDO thread

PDO thread lifting has some side effects including:

  •  Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Soreness
  • Swelling
  • A sensation of mild tightness up to two weeks after the procedure

In rare cases, the PDO procedure may cause infection, salivary duct damage, nerve damage, and nodules formation. Apart from jawline contouring, the PDO thread lift is also effective for crow’s feet, jowls, and wrinkles.
