Did you hear about what’s trending in the filler world?
But … I am a fan of jawline filler. I have been injecting jawlines before instagram had a hashtag for it. It has become more popular because of instagram and social media where we are seeing our faces at all angles.
I have always treated jawlines in my practice because it helps rebalance the face and keep the rest of the face lifted. Think about gravity … it pulls everything down including the skin on our face (ughh, and the boobs but that’s something else ). As we lose bone with age, our skin does not get tighter but rather loses elasticity and becomes thinner so it’s easier for gravity to pull it and cause those loathsome jowls. We lose that nice thick jaw to push up against gravity! Think of an old table covered with old tablecloth: As the joints in the table weaken and the wood rots and buckles, the tablecloth folds (wrinkles) and hangs over more. Placing filler in the jawline not only takes years off by making the face more youthful, but helps prevent further sagging by adding resistance for that downward gravitational pull.
