What Is Jaw Contouring With Radiesse?

It used to be that if you were unhappy with certain facial features, invasive surgery was your only option.

However, with developments in non-surgical aesthetic treatments, there are now other avenues open to patients unhappy with the shape of their nose or the profile of their chin.

Radiesse Jaw Contouring is one option.

As we age, our skin loses both collagen and elastin, key components that provide youthful support and definition to the overall facial structure.

Radiesse is a Dermal Filler containing Calcium Hydroxylapatite (a synthetic material identical to the substance in teeth and bones), which provides immediate volume and definition when administered via cannula to the designated treatment area.

What is jaw contouring with Radiesse?

Radiesse stimulates the body to produce its own natural collagen too, and over a period of months as the body metabolises the Calcium Hydroxylapatite, it leaves behind only naturally produced collagen in the treatment area for long-lasting results.

For the majority of patients, the results from a Radiesse Jawline Contouring treatment can last for up to 12 months.

As with all injectable aesthetic treatments, it is so important that you visit a skilled, experienced and medically qualified professional when you are considering a Dermal Filler treatment, including Radiesse Jaw Contouring.

A deep understanding of the structure of the face is essential, particularly if you want the results to look natural and subtle, and reduce the risk of potential side effects.

Tips before undergoing jaw contouring treatment

Prior to carrying out any treatment in the clinic, I insist on a pre-treatment consultation with every patient to discuss their unique skincare concerns, and it’s important to note that I, like many other qualified practitioners, don’t perform every non-surgical aesthetic procedure that we are asked to carry out.

As responsible aesthetic professionals, we will only carry out a treatment if we feel that it is an appropriate and safe option for a patient; if we are not convinced that the treatment is needed or that the results will meet the expectations of the patient, then we will not carry out the procedure.
