Jaw filler injection
Fillers are gels that are injected into the skin and increase the volume and stimulate the production of collagen or hyaluronic acid. This can affect the sagging, asymmetry and beauty of the jaw and face.
Jaw filler can be used for the following:
Eliminate the effects of sagging skin on the jaw due to aging
Create a beautiful and prominent jawline
Reduced appearance of protruding jaw bones in people with very thin faces
Jaw line symmetry on both sides of the face
Creating a protruding chin
Filler is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that should only be performed by a specialist or dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
What is the shelf life of the jaw filler?
The results of the jaw filler are immediately visible.
Individual results vary, but for many people, it may last up to 2 years.
You can help keep fillers alive by following these tips:
Avoid UV rays and protect the skin from the sun with sunscreen
Moisturize your skin regularly
Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water

Do jaw fillers hurt?
The pain can be mental and some people may feel more uncomfortable when injecting a jaw filler than others.
Before receiving any filler injections, your doctor may anesthetize the area with a topical cream or other type of local anesthetic.
You may feel some pain or discomfort at the injection site after the anesthetic cream wears off. This pain should not last more than 1 day.
Before injecting the filler
Tell your doctor about any medications or supplements you are currently taking.
Stop taking blood thinners, over-the-counter painkillers, vitamin E and garlic.
Avoid drinking alcohol.
Stop any topical skin treatments containing glycolic acid, retinols or retinoids a few days before the injection.
During this period, do not use any products to remove excess hair, including tweezers.
During filler injection
The doctor numbs the injection site.
After anesthesia, a small amount of filler gel is strategically injected at several sites along the mandible. A cannula may be used to help guide the filler inward.
Your doctor should evaluate the results of each injection slowly and continuously during treatment.
This process takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.
You may notice some bruising or swelling after the injection.
You can also use an ice pack immediately after treatment and if necessary.
You can return to work or normal activities immediately after the jaw filler injection.
Do not try to cover redness or swelling after surgery with makeup.
Avoid strenuous exercise.
Do not drink alcohol
Avoid exposure to strong sunlight.
