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.

What are MD Codes?

This customised dermal filler treatment is designed especially for you. The Code system enables aesthetic practitioners to create bespoke treatments which complement your exact facial structure and proportions.

Treatment can also be optimised to your budget, by treatment happening in stages. If you are looking for a cost-effective treatment focussing on just the eye area, Austin Brewer can plan an MD Code treatment suited to your requirements.

The MD Codes can be applied anywhere over the whole facial area. There are a total of 75 MD Codes to troubleshoot target areas, such as the cheeks, jawline, chin, forehead, brow line, eye area and the lips.

Are MD Codes safe?

Improved skin tone

Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the skin and plays an essential part in preserving the skin’s moisture levels. Low levels of hyaluronic acid in the dermis causes skin to become dry and more fragile – which could make you look older. All dermal fillers used by Austin Brewer are 100% hyaluronic acid based and will help boost skin moisture levels which will give you that more youthful appearance.

Results that last

Our treatments offer superb results that will last between six and eighteen months. All after-effects will vary on the area being treated and the volume of dermal fillers administered in your treatment. Whether you use protective aftercare or cosmetics to prolong the effects of your treatment, our dermal fillers will keep you looking younger for a considerable amount of time.
