The New 2020 Way to Inject Facial Fillers
Do you remember when the talk was all about placing filler along the cheekbones to give the face a lift? Well, it's still a good idea, but an even better way to lift the face is to place filler not only at the cheekbones but also along the jawline and the chin.
What a lot of people don't realize is, as we age, we lose bone structure. So when we're young, we have higher cheekbones, a stronger jawline and a more defined chin. All of these elements combined lead to a balanced and youthful look.
To recreate what time and nature have taken away, injecting filler is a non-surgical and safe way to restore our youth.
Balance is Key to Natural Looking Filler
If you're starting to notice some jowling along your jawline and chin, you may be a perfect candidate for filler in those areas. By adding filler to the cheekbones, jaw, and chin, you can recreate balance and replace what time has taken away.
The jawline and chin are defining features that provide structure and balance to our face, and by enhancing your jawline and chin, you can give the jowls a little lift.
Now the questions: How do we make sure we go to the right injector, and are you a candidate?
To find out, we interviewed Dr. Susan DeCoste, a board-certified dermatologist from Weymouth, Massachusetts.
"As you probably know, there's a lot of filler out there placed incorrectly by inexperienced injectors. We spend a lot of time undoing the worry that people have about, 'I don't want to look fake,'" explains Dr. Susan DeCoste. "I explain to patients when you do it correctly, it doesn't look fake; it looks very natural," says DeCoste.
Don't Let Just Anyone Inject Your Filler
First, go to a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon's office. If the physician doesn't do the injections, it should be a trained and experienced nurse injector who knows facial anatomy.
"Go to an injector who knows what they're doing. Don't look for the best price- look for the best injector. The results will be so spectacular, you won't look like you've had anything done but just a fresher version of yourself," explains DeCoste.
You may be a candidate if:
You have a weak jawline
A double chin
Sagging neck skin
Or loose skin around the jawline
