Sculpt a Better-Defined Jawline in the Dallas and Irving Areas

In 2022, the FDA approved an injectable filler set to revolutionize the world of jawline contouring: Volux. Dallas- and Irving-based dermatologist Dr. Ellen Turner uses this dermal filler in the Juvéderm® family to add definition to the jawline, which is a significant player when it comes to determining the shape of your face. A weak jawline, which is also sometimes called a weak chin, refers to a jawline that is poorly defined. Patients with this issue tend to have a chin and jaw that have a soft, rounded appearance.

Patients—men and women alike—have shown an increased interest in enhancing this area of the face, especially since the recent cultural rise in online video calls. There are a variety of techniques available to give the jaw and chin a more defined appearance, though Volux is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to enhance the jawline.

How Is the Lower Face Affected by Genetics and Aging?

Like many physical features, the shape and structure of the jaw are mostly determined by genetics, so it is possible to inherit a weak jawline from your parents or grandparents. Some people have always had a small jaw or chin. In other cases, aging causes a loss of volume from the jawbone and elsewhere.

As we age—starting from as early as the late 20s to early 30s—we lose definition on the lower border of the face. Decreased support from facial bones and a significant decline in the height of the jaw results in shorter jaws and receding chins. Furthermore, the loss of structure can cause sagging on the lower face to become more pronounced. The face shape may change, and jowls may develop since there is no longer a strong framework on the lower face.

Public interest in increased facial definition has grown over the past decade with the jawline being one of the most highly requested areas for cosmetic treatments. A technique called “mewing,” which involves placing the tongue at the roof of the mouth, has become popular on social media since it is believed by some people to create a stronger, squarer jawline. Others claim that exercises that target the muscles of the jawline will make it more prominent.

In truth, there is no reliable evidence to show that mewing and jaw exercises can change the structure or appearance of the jawline area. However, if you aren’t naturally blessed with a chiselled or well-defined jawline, if aging has caused a loss of definition, if you want to be able to enjoy your facial contours without makeup, or if you simply want to re-contour an aging jawline to create a more balanced profile, Juvéderm® Volux can help.

What Is Volux?

Just like the other fillers in the Juvéderm® family of injectables, Volux contains hyaluronic acid as its primary ingredient. Volux is FDA-approved for deep injection to correct moderate to severe loss of jawline definition. It works by adding long-lasting volume to the chin area. What sets it apart is that Volux provides more structure, lift, and firmness compared to other hyaluronic acid fillers in the Juvéderm® line. Volux is a dense filler that mimics bone and lifts tissue.

What Does Volux Address?

Volux is ideal for targeting the jawline area. Dr. Ellen Turner can use it to strengthen the jawline and chin to create more definition, reduce jowls, and help to improve the appearance of a double chin by creating a “sharper” lower facial border.

Am I a Good Candidate for Volux?

Patients who are over the age of 21 are eligible for Volux. Jawline enhancement with the filler is a popular, non-surgical option for younger patients who have a weak jaw because of genetics, but it may also be a great choice for mature patients who have lost definition due to aging. If you have a history of multiple, severe allergies, a bleeding disorder, or have the tendency to have allergic reactions to lidocaine, the bacterial proteins contained in the filler, or other hyaluronic acid facial fillers, you may not be a good candidate for Volux, but could benefit from other treatment strategies.

What Is the Volux Treatment Process?

As with other types of facial fillers, topical numbing creams are provided to minimize any discomfort. Volux is injected close to the bone along the jawline and chin to provide a more defined, lifted appearance. Each injection is very brief, and the sensation is often compared to a tiny and quick pinch.

Minor, temporary bruising and swelling are the most common side effects—all of which can be expected to fade with no special care in the following days.

When Will I See the Results from Volux and How Long Will They Last?

Volux can achieve excellent results for the lower face. It stays in place to give noticeable sharpness to the jawline while also improving facial balance and harmony. The specific results from Volux will depend on your unique face shape and how much of the filler is injected, but most people will notice a natural-looking improvement in jawline definition right away—and after just one syringe.

The effects of Volux last between one year to a year and a half. Multiple injections may be needed for optimal results from Volux.

Which Other Cosmetic Treatments Are Available in Dallas and Irving?

Dr. Turner’s Dermatology Office offers various types of dermal fillers from the Juvéderm® collection of temporary hyaluronic acid fillers, all used to enhance facial contours, add lift or volume, and reduce facial wrinkles. These fillers complement Volux, with each designed to work on a specific type of cosmetic concern. The fillers in this line that are available at the office include Juvéderm® XC for softening moderate to severe static wrinkles around the cheeks and mouth, Voluma® XC to add fullness or lift to the cheeks, a more lightweight filler called Volbella® for adding subtle volume to the lips and softening lip lines, and Vollure for addressing wrinkles around lower face such as nasolabial folds, oral commissures, and marionette lines.

Along with Volux, there are other treatments that can improve lower face definition. Dr. Turner will provide an assessment and help you determine which option is most suitable for you. Kybella® is an injectable treatment that dissolves fat from below the chin for a sleeker, more defined jaw and chin area. CoolSculpting® reduces double chin fat by causing fat cells to freeze and then be flushed from the body. For some patients, decreasing the fat pad beneath the chin will be sufficient for addressing a double chin, but others would benefit from Volux to add strength and definition to the bony structure of the lower face. EMFACE is a non-invasive energy-based device that can simultaneously reduce fat and build muscle for jawline contouring.
