A well-defined jawline has always been an indication of youthful beauty. If the passage of time has left you with a sagging jawline, San Antonio facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jose Barrera encourages you to consider treatment with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are a quick and effective way to improve a receding or weak jawline without surgery and its associated costs, risks and recovery.

How Dermal Fillers Work
Over time, the jawline weakens as a result of the natural loss of muscle tone and bone mass. This, in turn, leads to chin wrinkles, a sagging jawline or receding chin. Dermal fillers primarily work to add volume to the facial features. For a receding chin, Dr. Barrera can inject dermal fillers into strategic areas to augment the chin and make it appear larger. An augmented chin can restore balance to the facial features and create a more proportionate overall facial appearance. Similarly, Dr. Barrera can treat a sagging jawline by replacing lost volume with dermal fillers. The addition of volume will tighten and lift the skin on the jawline and neck for a more sculpted jawline. Dermal fillers are also used to fill in noticeable lines and wrinkles. Chin dimples, wrinkles and creases can be smoothed out with dermal fillers to create a softer and younger-looking appearance.
Designing Your Dermal Filler Treatment Plan
The specifics of each dermal filler treatment depend on a variety of factors. For instance, most men request a chiseled jawline that creates a striking profile, while most women are more concerned about chin wrinkles and adding volume. Dr. Barrera tailors each treatment to fit the unique needs and goals of the patient. Prior to treatment, he will meet with you to evaluate your anatomy and discuss your cosmetic needs and goals.
Dr. Barrera offers several dermal fillers at his San Antonio office. Results with dermal fillers are temporary, so repeat sessions are recommended. He can recommend a specific injectable product and treatment schedule based on your needs and desired outcome.
