CHIN, JAWLINE and NECK

An attractive and assertive male face tends towards a more gaunt cheek with pronounced shadows, a wider squared jawline, a prominent often cleft chin and wide taut unlined neck.

A youthful feminine face tends to be oval or heart shaped with a tapering and sharply defined jawline. The facial proportions project an upside down pyramid, with fuller mid face and narrow lower face, and a soft chin tapering to a V. A long unlined neck with no hint of wrinkles, sagging, fat deposition or muscle bands adds to feminine elegance.

Non surgical contouring of the chin, jawline and cheeks, using Botox and fillers to alter the proportions and balance of features, for an instant slimming effect and a softer, more feminine face.  Injection of Botox to the masseter muscle can help dramatically slim a wider jaw& reduce pain and spasm from teeth grinding (bruxism).

CONTOURING FOR DOUBLE CHIN

Rounded facial contours and poorly defined jawline, excessive fat deposition over the cheeks and over the chin and neck cause a blunting of facial features and convey the high body fat percentage of the individual. 

Sculpting by skin tightening treatments, reshaping injections & non surgical fat reduction, can create a chiseled square masculine jawline or sharp female V. 

V SHAPED FACE

Youthful feminine faces have a wider mid face and slimmer tapering lower face. This can be attained instantly by lifting and shaping with a combination of energy based devices such as radio frequency and ultrasound sculpting; with cosmetic injections: Botox and contouring dermal fillers.

NECK REJUVENATION & LIFT

The neck is an often ignored area. Treatments for the neck and face however be contiguous. Lines, folds, wrinkles and sagging; unsightly tendons and muscle tension can be improved with non surgical elongation, jawline sculpting & neck lift.
