Non-Surgical Facial Contouring
Injectables can do amazing things for your appearance and facial contouring. When these cosmetic injections are performed by an expert injector at Beauty Bar Medispa, you can contour, correct, and even change the shape and look of your face. Here, some of the cosmetic upgrades you can achieve with fillers and Botox.
The Liquid Facelift
Dermal fillers are used as non-invasive ways for patients to soften and even get rid of unwanted wrinkles, face creases and age lines. In addition to Botox, other injectables such as Juvederm, Vollure, Voluma, and Volbella, are used to help contour the face shape to the patient’s preference. The key ingredient in these fillers is hyaluronic acid, a substance already naturally-occurring in the body that helps add volume and hydration to the skin. As a person ages, their skin gets thinner and more elastic, and with the aid of these fillers, the sagging skin will be plumped up, making your facial contouring and other body parts look fuller and more youthful.
Turning Your Frown Upside Down with Botox
Do you constantly have a frown? Botox can be injected into the muscle that is pulling the corners of your lips to relax that muscle and stop the pulling downward movement.
What is Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring?
Nonsurgical jawline contouring is a cosmetic medispa procedure that uses injectable dermal fillers to add volume to the jaw, sculpting the contour of the lower face. While adding volume to achieve more definition. The slight increase in volume can enhance the jawline’s existing structure, build a stronger jawline, and create more separation between the jawline, the neck, and other facial structures, giving the jawline a more significant contour.
Botox to Soften the Jawline
Patients who want to have a more narrow jaw or whose jaw has widened and increased in size over time due to clenching of the masseter muscle in the side areas of the jaw, can have it “softened” or reduced with Botox treatment. Botox will be injected via needle into the masseter muscle under the cheekbones by a dermatologist and it will then weaken those muscles within minutes. The size of the jaw will decrease over time. Like all Botox procedures, the results will last 3-4 months, though with continued injections, the muscle will begin to atrophy over time due to lack of use, and the jaw will stay narrower.
Another popular complementary treatment used during nonsurgical jawline contouring is the injectable fat reducer Kybella®. This revolutionary product can help eliminate fat in the upper throat and below the chin.
Can Injectables Help with a Double Chin?
In clinical studies, 79% of patients treated with KYBELLA® had improved satisfaction with the appearance of their face and area beneath their chin 12 weeks after their last appointment.
Kybella injection was the first FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (or ‘double chin’). This treatment is now being used off-label to target small collections of fat on other body areas such as the inner thighs, knees, and around the bra-line. Patients experience visible contouring of their jawlines (or other areas, as appropriate) after an average of two to four treatments delivered at 1-2 month intervals.
After being treated with KYBELLA®, patients reported greater improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and looking younger based on their chin profile. They also reported feeling less embarrassed, less self-conscious, less overweight, and less bothered by the fullness under their chin.
