Jawlines Contouring in Edmonton

Jawline contouring is a procedure that reshapes and defines jawlines. In Edmonton, we provide various methods of jawline contouring. Previously, people who wanted to change their jawline or facial contouring underwent surgery. Surgery is frequently an expensive, invasive, painful procedure with a lengthy recovery period. The good news is that there are non-invasive jawline contouring procedures that produce satisfactory results without causing pain or requiring a lengthy recovery period. Among these contouring techniques are:

  • BOTOX® Injection
  • Injectable Fillers
  • Ultherapy and Fotona 4D lift
  • PDO threads

The BOTOX® Injection for jawline contouring:

For many years, BOTOX® (Botulinum toxin A) has been a superstar of the aesthetic surgery industry for the correction of lines and wrinkles. The toxin works by relaxing the masseter muscle, which is responsible for chewing in the jaw. This simple procedure is almost painless and requires little recovery time. The results are almost instantaneous and continue to improve after a few weeks.

 

When will results be seen?

The results will take about a week to appear and will improve over time. The best results will be seen four to six weeks after treatment. While the results are not permanent, Botox can be used to contour the jawline for up to six months. The treatment is dependent on the masseter muscle relaxing, and any activity that works the muscle can reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. Chewing for long periods of time, as well as any other activity that requires the lower jaw to move continuously, can reduce the results. To maintain optimal results, it is best to come in for touch-up injections at least twice a year.

What are the side effects?

Botox for jawline contouring has the same side effects as other Botox procedures. Common side effects include the followings

  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising

Fillers for jaw contouring:

Injectable dermal fillers are effective for jawline contouring. Unlike Botox which relaxes the jaw muscles, fillers work by adding volume to parts of the jawline and the face that are saggy or drooping.

How does filler work for jaw contouring?

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

What Is in a filler injection?

There are different types of fillers, some Dermal filler injections are comprised of hyaluronic acid gel such as Juvederm and Restylane. Some fillers act as collagen-stimulators including Sculptra and Radiesse.

Who should use filler injection?

Dermal fillers are ideal for people who have an age-related, genetically weak, or receding jawline. It is also appropriate for patients who have dimpling, a sagging jawline, creases, wrinkles, or lines.

Dermal filling injections for jawline contouring produce immediate results. The results are visible immediately following the procedure, which takes less than 45 minutes. The results, however, are not permanent and are usually only effective for 6-24 months.

Is the procedure painful?

You may feel a slight discomfort as the needle enters your skin, but the procedure is largely painless. This is because the area around the jaw is less sensitive and most dermal fillers have an anesthetic effect.

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. Read more about Fotona here

How Ultherapy works:

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 It 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

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

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.
