It used to be that invasive surgery was your only option if you were unhappy with certain facial features. However, with developments in non-surgical aesthetic treatments, there are now other avenues open to patients who may be unhappy with the shape of their nose or the profile of their chin. Radiesse Jaw Contouring is one option.
As we age, our skin loses both collagen and elastin, key components that provide youthful support and definition to the overall facial structure. Radiesse is a Dermal Filler containing Calcium Hydroxylapatite (a synthetic material identical to the substance in teeth and bones), which provides immediate definition and volume when administered via a cannula to the designated treatment area.
Radiesse stimulates the body to produce its own natural collagen too, and over a few months, as the body metabolises the Calcium Hydroxylapatite, it leaves behind only naturally produced collagen in the treatment area for long-lasting results. For the majority of patients, the results from a Radiesse Jawline Contouring treatment can last for up to 12 months.
As with all injectable aesthetic treatments, it is so important that you visit a skilled, experienced and medically qualified professional when you are considering a Dermal Filler treatment, including Radiesse Jaw Contouring. A deep understanding of the structure of the face is essential, particularly if you want the results to look subtle and natural, and essential if you wish to reduce the risk of potential side effects.
At Appearance Based Medicine, all our Dermal Filler injections are administered by Clare McLoughlin RGN INP - our skilled and experienced Aesthetic Nurse Prescriber and advanced procedure trainer, and a member of the Save Face Advisory Board (A PSA accredited register of approved aesthetic practitioners).
Prior to carrying out any treatment in clinic we insist on a pre-treatment consultation with every patient to discuss their unique skincare concerns, and it’s important to note that we don’t perform every non-surgical aesthetic procedure we're asked to carry out. As responsible aesthetic professionals, we will only carry out a treatment if we feel that it is an appropriate and safe option for a patient – including Radiesse Jaw Enhancement treatments; if we are not convinced that the treatment is needed - or that the results will meet the expectations of the patient - then we will not carry out the procedure. Our primary concern is our patients' wellbeing.
So if you're considering a Dermal Filler treatment (or any non-surgical aesthetic treatment) and you're searching for the safe and knowledgeable hands of a professional to guide you through the process, choose a safe and accredited practitioner!
