In this episode we follow our beautiful model who is looking to create a more defined jawline, helping to reduce jowls and tighten the area under the chin. For this treatment I have used 1ml of dermal filler strategically placed along the jaw using both a needle and cannula.
Treatment time is 20-30 minutes with no down time. Inflammation settles after a few days with optimal results seen at 2 weeks. You can expect treatment to last from 18 months - 2 years.
The outcome is fantastic, the jaw immediately looks tighter and more defined with the jowls softening. It’s worthwhile noting that the area beneath the chin is also tighter as a result of using the filler as an anchor to pull back the jaw. Needless to say, she was very pleased with the outcome.

Earlier this year I attended the Australasians Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons Anatomical Dissection in Sydney where cosmetic practitioners get hands-on live demonstrations of the use of fillers on cadavers and learn about facial anatomy. The course is spread over one day and consists of practical and theoretical knowledge. It costs around $1500. Is it worth it? Well watch on to find out.
I’ll also give you a run down of the hottest cosmetic trends of this year and some interesting pointers on why men become more attractive with age and unfortunately why women don’t.
Also discussing the use of tear trough fillers and what makes a good candidate and talk what happens when fillers need to be dissolved.
Take care and stay healthy 😘
