For both men and women, an attractive, well-defined jawline is often the most-wanted facial feature.
In men, a chiselled jawline conveys strength, power and masculinity and, in women, a firm jawline transmits vitality, beauty and, of course, femininity.
But not all of us possess the contoured jawline-of-dreams. Weight fluctuations as well as genetics can all factor in our less-than-sculpted facial structure.
Both genders will also notice they lose the youthful sharpness in their jawline as they start to age. This is mainly due to loss of bone in the mandible, or lower jaw bone.
Do you find that a weak jawline, a recessed or double chin or the onset of jowls leaves you feeling somewhat dissatisfied, especially when you see your image in photographs, making you look older or less defined than you wish?
If so, you’re not alone. Requests for jawline treatment are at an all-time high since the Lockdowns and it’s not altogether surprising when you can see the instant, impactful, yet almost imperceptible difference a few skilfully and strategically-placed injections of jawline sculpting filler can make.
The perfect jawline differs greatly between men and women.
In men, it is wider, and the angle should be around 90 to 100 degrees. For women, we want a slimmer jawline to help create a more heart or oval facial shape. The angle should ideally be around 120 degrees.
Dr Joshua has extensive experience in shaping, balancing and defining profiles, and you’ll find many examples of his work in our gallery below. Read his interview with Beauty Uncovered magazine where he talks ‘movie star-worthy’ jawlines via our In the Press page.
How does jawline sculpting filler work?
Moderate jowls, sagging and the loss of definition and shape in the jawline and chin are subtly camouflaged to look stronger, younger and more structured with the addition of small amounts of filler, enhancing and supporting your overall appearance.
