Your jawline acts as the framework for your face and is a large part of your facial composition. A strong jawline makes a face look sharp, defined, and appealing. That’s why it can be frustrating when your jawline loses its fullness or luster. While there are surgical procedures to enhance your jawline, those often come with extensive recovery times. Some people feel uncomfortable with surgery and may look for non-surgical options. Let’s explore how treatments like RestylaneⓇ Lyft and Sculptra® can achieve a defined jawline without surgery.
Restylane Lyft is a minimally invasive dermal filler that is primarily used for loss of volume in the face, loss of volume in the hands, wrinkles, and fine lines. Taking care of your skin can be difficult, and it will naturally begin to sag over time. Collagen in the skin works to keep your skin elastic and tight to underlying structures. Collagen can become damaged from UV radiation from the sun and things like large weight loss. This can usually be offset with proper skincare, diet, and exercise.
However, you will eventually experience a loss of facial volume because of aging. You naturally lose muscle tissue as you age, causing your skin to “sink” in. Restylane Lyft can be used to restore that lost volume. The dermal filler is made out of hyaluronic acid and will fill out your skin and provide definition. The hyaluronic acid will also provide a hydrating boost to your skin. Restylane Lyft is a great option for restoring the definition of your jawline without surgery.
Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic treatment made from an alpha hydroxy acid called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). The PLLA in the skin will then trigger the body’s collagen production as it responds to what it thinks is a wound. The PLLA causes controlled “damage” to the underlying structures and induces the body’s healing response. The PLLA is slowly broken down and metabolized by the body over time. This leads to a slow and continuous production of collagen. The increased amount of collagen allows Sculptra to tighten and sculpt the skin over time for a younger and more defined appearance. Sculptra is a great treatment for the jawline to reduce facial sagging.
