Those who lack jaw definition, fall into two groups: people who are going through the throes of intrinsic ageing, and those who were simply born this way. At DrBK, we offer jawline augmentations (otherwise known as jawline fillers) to help restore symmetry and harmony to your facial profile.
A very common part of ageing, is the recession of the jawbone. The consequences of this are a lack of support to the surrounding tissues, leading to laxity and sagging in the jowl area. It also has a knock on effect, to the appearance of the neck and the condition of the skin in this area.
The jawline plays an essential part in the overall appearance of ones’ facial shape and profile. It is vital to maintain the strength of the jawline in order to achieve a youthful and well-proportioned look. That’s why we offer jawline fillers.
What can I expect on the day of treatment?
You will be treated by Dr Bob Khanna himself.
On arrival to your appointment, we will remove any makeup and cleanse and sanitise the skin/area. We will then apply a topical anaesthetic on to the injection sites to ensure the treatment is as pain-free as possible.
To keep swelling and bruising to a minimum, we administer the product with the use of a cannula. A little discomfort is not uncommon. However, if you feel particularly sensitive, we are able to administer a local anaesthetic, although in most cases this is not necessary.
Your appointment will last for around 30 minutes. This allows time for cleansing of the skin, numbing and the treatment itself.
How soon, after treatment can I expect to see results?
The beauty of this procedure and product, is that the results take effect immediately. Furthermore, as your own natural collagen is stimulated, results actually continue to develop over the course of the month. The effects are long-lasting, non-permanent and reversible. Due to this, most of our patients will return for a top up, every 6-12 months.
What are the risks and side effects?
The majority of reactions post-procedure, are generally minimal and temporary. You should expect a degree of swelling and slight bruising is a possibility. However, these reactions should subside within the week.
After treatment, we advise you to avoid the following for up to 2 weeks;
- Touching or rubbing the area (to avoid manipulation of the product)
- Beauty treatments (such as facials, facial massages etc)
- Saunas (and other extreme temperatures)
You will be invited to attend a review appointment 3 weeks later for any adjusting that may be necessary.
