As time passes, the jawline can begin to lose its definition and sag. In some cases, it can also be accompanied by a droopy neck, which can cause you to look in the mirror and notice a change in your overall facial appearance. This affects both men and women and when it occurs, it can cause you to wonder if there is anything you can do to fix it without surgery. The answer is yes!
In fact, there are two main non-invasive solutions available to help bring back that trim, toned look to your face and neck: jawline Botox and jawline filler. Each are used to treat different issues with the lax appearance of the jaw and neck, so let's go over a breakdown of both to help you choose the right solution for you.
Jawline Botox is mainly used to restore definition to the jawline and give your upper neck a minor lift for a more contoured look to the lower face. However, it is not typically used to address problems with a loss of volume. It is most helpful when a patient's jawline is only slightly sagging, but their neck muscles are so strong that they draw the jawline down, which can further increase the loss of its shape.
Jawline fillers are soft tissue fillers that are commonly used throughout the body to restore volume; however, these are formulated specifically for the jawline so that they are strong enough to increase its shape. They can also be used to help lift the area along the jowls when injected at the back of the jawline or into the area where the cheek and chin meet. Good candidates for jawline fillers are patients seeking a more pronounced jawline from the cheeks to the neck, which may have become less distinctive due to a loss of bone or weight gain.
Jawline Botox and Jawline Fillers Risks
Both treatments have very few side effects when administered by a skilled technician. However, it is not uncommon for some patients to experience minor bruising at the injection sites. Some patients may also experience some soreness along the jawline with fillers, but it is not usually common with Botox.
Both jawline fillers and jawline Botox are proven treatments used to minimize the appearance of jowls and improve the contour of the jawline for a more youthful appearance. Jawline fillers have longer-lasting effects of up to a year or more, while Botox only lasts about 3 to 4 months.
