Can jowls be lifted without surgery?

Can I smooth, shape and tighten my jawline without surgery?, the answer is most certainly yes. Can jowls be lifted without surgery? Yes, yes & yes!. you do not need to live with those jowls, double chin, saggy skin, whichever way you describe it, there is an answer.  You may be thinking “Do I need to go under the knife?” “Do I need a full facelift?” Don’t worry the answer is no, keep reading to find out why.

Can jowls be lifted without surgery?

Unfortunately nature can be unkind and so can gravity, but fortunately there is now a treatment, to lift those jowls. A facelift without surgery, using filler.  The filler we use is Juvederm, it is Hyaluronic acid, which is not as scary as it sounds. Our own skin cells actually produce hyaluronic acid naturally in an effort to maintain moisture levels. Due to ageing and environmental factors our faces are literally “faced” with on a daily basis, our own natural levels take a dip.  This can cause, dullness, fine lines and uneven skin tone and texture, which are none of the things that give us youthful looking skin.

But why do I get jowls?

Our jawline is a major part of the scaffolding for our entire face, so as those signs of ageing start to happen, what we are really seeing is loss of elasticity and volume which causes those horrible jowls.  A natural defined jawline will not make you look like a man (unless of course, you are a man who would like a more chiselled and defined look in which case we can do that too, have a look here), in the hands of the right practitioner you will achieve a naturally beautiful jawline that is subtly and delicately contoured not chiselled. So back to our original question – Can jowls be lifted without surgery? Absolutely and definitely!.

So what can help lift my jowls?

When we are young we have, what the facial aesthetics industry calls a “triangle of youth”. This means there is more volume in the upper face. This then tapers down into a ‘v’ shape at the jaw. These shapes are nothing new they are actually the mathematical ideals of beauty. But as we age this “triangle of youth” actually ends up turned upside down. So the heaviness is now in the lower part of the face, causing a saggy look. 

This is why defining the jawline can have such a skin tightening effect. Combined with some cheek filler and the overall effect is smooth and tightened skin. Which is not over stretched, like a regular surgical facelift would leave you with. Instead the skin looks plump in the right places and contoured where it should be. You could call it “a real life filter” 

Learning how to define the jawline is surprisingly important to many of us. A 2017 study by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that 67 per cent of the people surveyed were bothered by excess fat and skin around their chin and neck.  With all the latest trends in our instagram feeds of some very pulled tight high pony tails. (as seen on Kylie Jenner in the latest edition of Vogue – January 2020). This treatment revolution could not have come at a better time.

Our secret weapon against jowls – Juvederm

The saviour of all of our lower face distress is Juvederm’s latest hyaluronic acid filler Volux. It has been created with jawlines at the forefront of its development. Volux is the most advanced and superior product currently on the market, and it’s made for this very job.  Juvederm Volux has a very strong reputation as the product for transforming jawlines.

Since its launch we have seen excellent results here at Austin Brewer Facial Aesthetics. One of the most popular questions in my clinic is “Can jowls be lifted without surgery”? And as we tell them, yes they can. Our clients have all been very impressed with the transformation of their jawlines.  Combining the best hyaluronic filler and some very advanced training in “M D Codes” specialised for achieving such natural results. This is something which Austin Brewer is a proud advocate of,

“The days of over filled lips and cheeks are looking like they are turning a corner. I’m very pleased they are becoming a thing of the past. I have always wanted to give my clients the most beautiful and natural results.”

Advanced treatments – excellent results

And so the rise of the popular the liquid facelift has continued to become one of our most popular treatments. This is mostly down to the fact that it looks so very natural.

3 Ways You Can Contour & Slim Your Face and Jaw Using Fillers

Contour & Slim your face…

Celebrities, make-up artists and social media influencers have been using tricks to contour & slim their clients faces for years.  To enhance and create a more flattering facial appearance.  You can contour & slim your face by using a combination of concealer, bronzer and highlighter.  Most importantly contouring can give the illusion of prominent cheekbones, a slimmer nose and a more defined jawline.  Although this makeup process can achieve good results, it requires a lot of skill, product and time.  However, why not contour and slim your face so you always look naturally radiant.  So you don’t need access to the world’s top makeup artists in the morning!.

A much more effective alternative is using dermal fillers to contour and slim your face to emphasise your facial features.  Facial fillers provide definition and therefore contour your features without the need for heavy makeup or plastic surgery.
Interested in finding out more? Read on to discover three ways you can contour your face with fillers:

Define your jawline

Firstly genetics will play a huge part in whether you have a defined jawline.  If your jawbone is closer to your neck, it can appear less defined.  Age can also play a part in a changing jawline.  But the effects of ageing can be reduced without the need for invasive surgery.  If you’re unhappy with your current jawline, facial remodelling using dermal fillers may therefore be a suitable option for you.

If your jawline is sagging, by using dermal fillers to the surrounding and specific areas, excess skin can lift and add volume, filling out any drooping areas.  Austin Brewer who is a skilled and artistic facial aesthetic practitioner can sculpt and shape the jawline by adding dermal filler into these key areas.

If you have dimples or lines on or around your chin and jawline, these too can be filled with chin and jaw fillers by adding volume to any skin indents.  The results are immediate and can help restore a fresh and youthful appearance.
Fillers can be applied to help even out shape and define the lower half of your face for a more balanced appearance. They can also soften jowls and correct the appearance of your side profile.

Slimmer nose

Non-surgical facial remodelling can also be used to give the appearance of a slimmer nose.  Fillers can also even out any lumps and bumps on your nose too!

If you don’t want to commit to plastic surgery, would like a bump in your nose straightened out, or would like it to appear slender, this can be achieved using dermal fillers.  Dermal fillers are a great option for patients who would just like a small correction without surgery.  Reshaping can be achieved quickly and comfortably and is therefore becoming a popular alternative to rhinoplasty.

Highlight your cheekbones

For patients who are wishing to enhance the appearance of their cheekbones.  This simple dermal filler treatment alone certainly can make a huge difference to your face shape and confidence.  Dermal fillers add volume to sunken areas and as a result create beautifully contoured cheekbones.

Non-surgical facial remodelling can perfect facial proportions and enhance natural beauty.  Austin Brewer only uses 100% hyaluronic acid-based fillers which are highly biocompatible.

Treatments are mostly painless and are injected using an ultra-thin needle.  Sometimes patients will feel a slight discomfort, but this subsequently fades soon after the application.

What is an 8 Point Facelift?

The new 8 Point facelift is a hot topic amongst beauty bloggers right now.  With it’s significant but natural effects, it’s clear to see why.  Even those who swore they would never touch a needle are trying this new non-surgical face lift. We explain how the eight point face lift system is different and why you should try it.

You may be hesitant to try Botox in Bournemouth or dermal fillers after seeing the ‘frozen face’ results from inexperienced practitioners.  MD codes are different.  The innovative 8 point facelift takes any unpredictable guesswork out of the equation.  Dr Maio’s dermal filler system instructs aesthetic practitioners where to inject fillers to create specific changes or movement in the face.  MD codes in the 8 point facelift also provide detailed recommendations of the correct amount of filler to use.  This prevents any risk of puffy ‘pillow face’ effects.

What do MD Codes do?

The main aim of MD codes is to reverse signs of gravity and ageing.  Dermal fillers are applied to tighten areas of the face which is starting to sag or plump areas that need more volume.
Some common areas include:

• Lifting cheekbones
• Reduce lines from the nose to the mouth
• Add symmetry
• Plump hollow areas under the eyes

This system only uses the minimal number of injections to create a youthful and natural look appearance.

Does the 8 point facelift hurt?

You may experience a slight stinging in the areas being treated. However, the fillers are applied with an ultra-thin needle, similar to lip fillers, so the discomfort is minimal.  There is also lidocaine in the fillers.  So any minimal pain or discomfort will soon fade soon after the treatment is complete.

How long does a 8 point facelift last?

This cosmetic treatment procedure only takes between 45 mins to 1 hour to complete.  As each treatment is bespoke to the individual some procedures may not need fillers in all 8 points.

The stunning results of the 8 point face lift system can last up to 18 months.  Length of results may vary depending on the type of dermal filler use and the areas which are treated.

Botox vs Dermal Fillers: which is best for you?

If you have heard the term Botox vs dermal fillers, you will know that both treatments reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But what is the difference between the two? Read on the discover how these treatments vary and which is best for you.

Botox vs Dermal fillers – what’s the difference?

Botox is the brand name for a specific type of wrinkle treatment using an intensely purified protein. This protein is injected into the muscle to relax the area and diminish the surrounding muscle activity. Botox is a great tool for targeting specific lines, such as frown lines or crows feet.

Dermal fillers work by replenishing the natural level of hyaluronic acid in the face, which decreases as we get older. Hyaluronic acid supports the skin and can be injected into the face to ‘plump’ out lines and wrinkles. This is a great method to add volume to certain parts of the face, which may have sunk due to natural aging or a high impact lifestyle. Hyaluronic acid is also the key ingredient in lip fillers in Bournemouth.

What does each treatment involve?

Both treatments are injected into the target areas with a small needle. This may result in minimal swelling or bruising (but can easily be covered with make-up, if you wish). The side effects for both treatments will soon go, usually within 24 hours. Although you may feel a little discomfort, neither Botox or dermal fillers are painful procedures.

How long do they last?

The results from Botox treatment usually lasts up to three months, but this may vary from patient to patient. The effects of dermal fillers can last up to 18 months, depending on the volume of the dermal fillers used.

Austin Brewer on UK Talk Radio: The Ageing Process

Austin Brewer, facial aesthetic practitioner in Bournemouth.  Appearing on UK Talk Radio to discuss the impact of the ageing process and the various cosmetic treatments available.

With increasing pressure from magazines and tabloids to look younger.  More men and women are seeking cosmetic treatments to reduce the signs of ageing. Whether it’s to feel more confident in a job or to have a fresh-faced look, we feel that a youthful appearance is a sign of beauty.

What happens to the face as we grow older?

As we grow older our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, making our face less voluminous.  Gravity takes its toll and ultimately our skin sags, which can become quite noticeable.  Up to 10 years ago, people chose facelifts as the ideal treatment.  Yet the recovery time for this surgical procedure has led to a search for less invasive cosmetic treatments, such as facial fillers.  Austin Brewer says, “‘Facelifts have had their time now.  What we’re looking at now is putting that volume back in to somebody’s face.  Giving them that youthful appearance to make them look like they did without having to use a facelift.  It’s not about pulling it up its about putting the volume back in’.

Facelifts can result in quite drastic changes to the face shape.  Whereas less invasive cosmetic treatments such as facial fillers can provide a much more natural look.

What are the psychological effects of looking younger?

Psychologically, no one wants to look older, and your appearance impacts your self-esteem. By using facial fillers to look younger in your face, this will mirror your confidence and ultimately makes you feel happier!

What are some ways to achieve a more youthful complexion?

Volumisation of the face can be executed with facial fillers.  Older facial fillers only penetrate the layer beneath the skin.  Whereas Juvéderm infiltrates deep under the fatty layer and are different to other hyaluronic based fillers, as they emulate and grow the existing collagen at the same time.

Which areas of the face would you use dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers can be used to rewind the ageing process in many areas of the face but are most commonly applied to the cheeks, jawlines and the corners of your mouth.  It is also used in noses, foreheads for an overall effect of plumper skin. Dermal fillers produce immediate results and are clinically the longest lasting filler available today.

How often would need to top up dermal fillers?

Regular facial filler top ups are needed every 4-6 months, whereas Juvéderm fillers can last up to 18 months, depending a few factors, including the area treated.
