As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Fillers can help counteract this aging process by adding fullness to the cheeks, smoothing out nasolabial folds (smile lines), puppet lines (folds that go from the corner of the mouth to the chin), and double chins. Fillers and injectables are usually sufficient to treat mild double chins. Sculptra is a type of filler that is classified differently than other fillers.
It is a collagen stimulator, meaning it causes the body to produce more collagen. When injected into the cheeks, Sculptra fills them more and lifts the skin on the lower part of the face and jaw line. Midface fillers are used to place dermal filler on the cheeks to lift the double chin. This technique is beneficial if there is significant flattening of the cheeks.
Restoring volume to the cheeks has the effect of raising not only the double chin but also the nasolabial lines. However, it does not create a significant lift and must be combined with other treatments, such as filling in the double chin or a thread lift.So why does contouring the middle part of the face with cheek fillers improve the appearance of the lower face? When you create a lift of the retaining ligaments in your cheeks, it has a domino effect that rises all over your face. As a member of the Dermal Fillers category, this therapy can lift the double chin.Injectable options such as dermal fillers are ideal for restoring facial volume, while ultrasound treatments such as Ultherapy are effective when it comes to stimulating the growth of new collagen supplies to directly reduce the sagging effect of the double chin. Dermal fillers can be injected into the soft tissue of the skin to restore lost volume or fill in lines and wrinkles.
When dermal filler is used as a double chin filler, it is injected along the jawline into the groove prior to the double chin and puppet lines to recover definition of the jawline. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to relax neck muscles, preventing them from contracting and forming wrinkles, while dermal fillers work to fill in areas and restore a contoured, youthful appearance.If you're considering getting fillers for jowls, it's important to understand all your options and consult with an experienced professional who can help you determine which treatment is best for you.
