Frequently Asked Questions
Does Jaw Filler Help Jowls?
Jaw filler can help reduce the look of early jowl formation. However, if you have a large amount of extra skin and are a facelift candidate, filler will not be an effective option. This is largely up to an individual’s skin quality, progression of aging, and anatomy. Your provider will determine if jaw filler is a good fit for correcting your jowls.
Is Jaw Filler Safe?
Jaw filler is largely considered safe. There are risks like with any medical based procedure. However, if you go to a qualified provider and use safe, FDA-approved fillers, jaw filler is perfectly safe for most people. Certain medical conditions may increase risks which is why it is important to discuss your medical history with your provider.
Can It Help A Double Chin?
Yes, though, it is best used to treat a double chin in conjunction with other procedures. For example, jaw filler with Kybella treatments may help reduce a double chin while enhancing the jaw structure. If the double chin is slight, jaw filler and/or chin filler may help correct it.
