Made popular in the USA, jaw contouring with hyaluronic acid is an aesthetic medicine technique with the aim of giving a more defined and square jaw. It is a painless and non-invasive procedure, restoring self-confidence and allowing you to assert yourself towards others.
What is Jawline contouring?
Jawline contouring literally means reshaping the contour of the jaw.
Influencers like Kylie Jenner and stars like Angelina Jolie have contributed to make this procedure popular, with the success of their Instagram posts. Achievable for women and men, the hyaluronic acid (HA) injection as a filler allows to redraw the lines of the lower part of the face if it is too thin, by masculinising the oval and the mandibular line.
The concept: how can hyaluronic acid injection help reshape your jaw?
Organic molecule, hyaluronic acid is a gel formula that constitutes the fundamental substance of the dermis.
It is injected intra-dermally to recreate volume, particularly to remove static wrinkles that deepen with age. Its tolerance is optimal, with physiological resorption averaging 12 to 18 months.
The moisturizing and volumizing action of a hyaluronic acid depends on its macromolecular characteristics, such as its size (molecular weight) or its structure (HA cross-linked or not).
This defines its holding in the tissues, its resorption rate, its viscosity, its volumizing effect...
For "jaw-contouring", the practitioner has a variety of adapted HA: the purpose is to have a product that is permanently fixed despite gravity, for a natural look in terms of volume.
The harmony of jaw contours depends on the length between its tip and the mandibular angle, and the position of the chin.
The hyaluronic acid in jaw-contouring creates a volumizing effect that can be placed either on the mandibular line, its angle or its tip.
Indications : Why choose jaw contouring in New York ?
Jaw contouring concerns both men and women, as long as their jaw and the oval of their face have little definition It is often a cause of suffering socio-professional or emotional life issues, because this "fuzzy" image reflects the idea of an indecisive, unwilling, weak, hesitant or fleeing character.
For women, the goal of working on the jawline is not to " virilize " the mandible. The practitioner seeks to gain in harmony for a more prominent and clearer jawline shape, in thickness or volume. This is a wish among active, often young, women with positions of responsibility. The jawline contouring helps them gain self-confidence by sending back a more willful image, especially towards older subordinates under their supervision. They no longer have to constantly prove who themselves, which reduces stress at work.
For men, Brad Pitt's beauty standards are based on a wider mandible, a more angular mandibular angle, and a defined mandibular line. On the other hand, a jaw that's too thin reflects an image of weakness, regardless of who you really are.
In both cases, the mandibular reshaping with hyaluronic acid will change the physiognomy of the lower face to reflect a reassuring image of strength and self-confidence.
The main indications of jaw line contouring are therefore :
- Removing signs of aging from the face with an oval losing its volume.
- To reshape the contours of a jaw that is too round or too receding.
- Give a more masculine look to a male face that is too soft and too round, like a baby's face.
Follow a jaw contouring injection session
The medical procedure takes place in the medical block of the clinic in New York.
It always takes place after an initial consultation where your doctor has listened to your needs and expectations, aesthetic or otherwise.
On a cleansed skin, the doctor draws the different entry points. There are often several injections of hyaluronic acid to target the tip, the mandibular angle or the horizontal line. This injection is usually done with an atraumatic cannula. The physician may eventually homogenize the HA by massaging it in. Depending on the quantity needed for the injections, the doctor may suggest a check-up after 2/4 weeks, and a possible touch-up.
The session takes about 20 minutes.
The after effects are similar to any hyaluronic acid injection.
The results of jaw reshaping
The immediate effect is noticeable, but altered by the edematous swelling. After ten to fifteen days, this effect is considered definitive, with a lasting result up to 12 to 18 months. After 15 days, a touch-up is possible.
The effects of jaw contouring are quite spectacular, by restoring strength to the oval of the face, which is more defined thanks to a more pronounced and sharper jaw.
