If you are dreaming of a more sculpted and defined jawline, the good news is that you can often get the results you want without resorting to surgery. At Dermatology Associates of Rochester, we offer dermal fillers for jawline contouring and KYBELLA to melt away submental (under chin) fat. Learn more about these powerful nonsurgical options below.
Injectable fillers for the jawline strategically add volume, harmonize facial proportions, and create a clearer distinction between the jaw and neck. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, create a more youthful and contoured appearance with immediately noticeable improvements. Sculptra® Aesthetic, another type of injectable, adds volume by stimulating collagen production for tighter, firmer skin lasting up to 2 years.
How Does It Work?
Dermal fillers counteract the volume loss in our skin by lifting and sculpting sagging skin and creating a plump, smooth base to support it. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically takes about 30 minutes to complete. One of our highly trained and skilled injectors will carefully apply the filler along your jawline to create more pleasing contours.
While there may be some minor swelling or bruising afterward, these side effects resolve within a few days. You can resume your usual activities after treatment with limited exceptions and enjoy the immediate improvements for several months before requiring a touch-up session.
Now, let’s talk about KYBELLA. If you’re bothered by submental fullness and want a nonsurgical solution, KYBELLA is the double chin treatment you’re seeking. This groundbreaking injectable is specifically designed to target and eliminate the fat cells responsible for that unwanted double chin.
KYBELLA’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the area beneath your chin, KYBELLA starts working to dissolve the fat cells. Over time, your body naturally processes and eliminates these cells, revealing a more youthful and defined jawline.
How Does It Work?
KYBELLA treatments are relatively quick and straightforward and involve multiple injections under your chin. There may be some swelling and discomfort after the procedure, but these are usually temporary and subside within a few days. Your body will gradually metabolize the fat cells, with results becoming visible over several weeks.
Most importantly, KYBELLA provides long-lasting results; once those fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Learn more about eliminating a double chin in our related blog post.
