The chin plays a very large role in the definition of the jawline.
In addition to lines and wrinkles, one of the telltale signs of aging for both men and women is a less defined jawline. Collagen and elastin are proteins that make up the connective tissue in your body. As we age, we lose connective tissue, collagen, elastin and bone structure in the chin. Eventually over time, the chin area will form deeper wrinkles and the midface tissue will begin to sag. Fat and tissue will also accumulate, contributing to jowls and unattractive loose skin around the jawline. Years ago, a popular choice was chin implant surgery, but there are now non-surgical solutions to improve your aging chin. Here are some non-invasive, non surgical treatment options that Defy Nature Medical Spa recommends and are available at their New London Med Spa today:
- The revolutionary Genius RF micro-needling, now very popular non-surgical treatment combines the healing powers of micro needling with the stimulation of radiofrequency (RF) to reverse the signs of aging. Hair-thin 24 carat gold needles will repeatedly penetrate your skin, stimulating a wound-healing response. The RF energy travels through the needles to trigger your body to create more collagen and elastin, making the treatment even more effective. As your skin repairs itself from the inside out, it becomes smoother, tighter, firmer and more youthful-looking.
- Botox Cosmetic is a highly effective treatment for lines that appear around the mouth and chin. And for those patients who prefer a non-surgical approach to sagging in the neck and jawline, a Botox neck lift can be an excellent option. During this procedure, Botox is injected into the platysmal bands of the neck and the DAO, or depressor anguli oris, muscle of the jawline. As the bands and muscles relax, it pulls the jawline up by relaxing, reducing the appearance of jowls and smoothing out the area. Because Botox injections are non-invasive, they’re virtually pain-free. This is a convenient, temporary way to enhance your youthful appearance without having to commit to cosmetic surgery! The procedure itself generally takes about fifteen minutes, and regular daily routines can be resumed almost immediately.
- One of most common treatments used for chin enhancements is dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid filler (HA) is the basic mainstay for chin augmentation, like the brand Juvederm. While some hyaluronic acid fillers are effective, they may sometimes appear soft in the face rather than provide a defined look. Now experience Volux from Allergen. It just got FDA approved and actually duplicates the natural bone structure and is now available at Defy Nature. For most patients, if performed by an experienced trained injector, a hyaluronic acid filler procedure makes a dramatic difference, both in the projection and shape of the chin. Results are seen immediately!
