Defined jawlines have been associated with health, vitality, and strength of character throughout all time. Having a sleek definition between our jaw and neck provides a youthful and fit appearance as well, whether you're male or female, young or old.
Aging causes our facial skin to sag downward and congregate near the jaw, as well as causing the bony structures of the jaw to shrink. Defining the jaw is a treatment goal of almost every aesthetic patient, whether they need just a little correction to address a deficit or asymmetry or if they are looking for changes to the jaw secondary to the aging process. Jaw definition is one of the most sought-after aesthetic procedures at Ocean Drive, both surgically and non-surgically. Non-surgical augmentation of your jaw is typically achieved through injectable filler therapy, although we have other treatments that can tie into your filler treatment plan if necessary.
To achieve definition in the jaw, your injectable product needs to match the underlying anatomy. Whether you're creating feminine angles and definition or a masculine chiseled structure for the jaw, the injectable needs to provide structure and not a pillowy volume. Ocean Drive's favorite product for the jaw has historically been Radiesse because of its high G' (the thickness and elasticity of the product) that has been unrivaled by any other filler. While other fillers can and have been used to treat the jawline, the receding chin, or the aging jowls, such as other Juvederm or Restylane fillers, Ocean Drive has always been committed to natural enhancement, and the other hyaluronic acid fillers cannot provide the results we expect for you.
Enter Juvederm Volux, the first and only hyaluronic acid injectable filler to receive FDA indication for jawline and chin correction. Volux is the highest G' hyaluronic acid gel filler currently on the market in the United States. It has been augmenting our jawline treatments beautifully both in conjunction with Radiesse and as a stand-alone product. Juvederm's proprietary Vycross technology blends the viscosity and cohesivity of hyaluronic acid to provide the ideal lift for long-lasting results.
This hyaluronic acid filler is injected similarly to other filler treatments using small needles or often using a micro-cannula technique. With Juvederm Volux Vero Beach patients can achieve their ideal jawline, as strategically placing small amounts of this filler builds and sculpts to match and enhance their natural appearance. Juvederm Volux hyaluronic acid gel filler also has a small amount of lidocaine, making injections more comfortable.
Juvederm Volux is a versatile filler that allows the product to be injected using different product placement techniques, creating either a more feminine or masculine jawline. Volux's thickness and cohesivity make this hyaluronic acid filler treatment perfect for the jaw, mimicking the appearance of a natural structure. Volux will not provide a filled or overdone appearance, as it is designed to provide natural, smooth definition. As with all injectables, it calls for a two-week settling period and can involve some bruising and swelling; however, results are instant. Typical results last about 18 months, depending on the volume injected and your lifestyle.
At Ocean Drive in Vero Beach Juvederm Volux is offered by our expert injectors as a versatile option for nonsurgical correction, smoothing, defining, chiseling, and enhancing the jawline structures to bring out the natural you.
