If you live in New York then you are likely surrounded by people in the fashion and beauty industry, which also means that you are surrounded by a ton of beautiful people. One popular look at the moment is that chiseled jawline and contoured cheek, but let’s be honest: not all of us are born with a naturally contoured face, and even those of us who don’t carry much body fat, have a hard time getting that perfect contour right (even with makeup).
So are all these people just blessed with these prominent bones in all the right places?
Some of them might be, but it turns out that one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market at the moment is cheek filler. Because it is a minimally invasive procedure, cheek filler can be found at nearly any medical spa.
As the field of aesthetic medicine has grown and minimally invasive procedures have become increasingly popular, there has also been an increase in medical practices offering anti-aging treatments including MiracleFace cosmetic dermatology. This does not come as a surprise, considering that the people of NYC basically have their own set of beauty standards.
Cheek fillers in New York have recently been named the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure (aside from lip fillers) in the United States. This goes hand in hand with under eye filler as well as jawline filler to add even more of a contour for the perfect ‘snatched’ look.
If you want to achieve that same look, it may only take a few injections rather than a full on cosmetic surgery. Here are some common minimally invasive face contouring procedures to take into consideration...
Dermal fillers can be used to contour the face from the front and from a profile perspective. The most popular dermal fillers treatment areas to create that ‘snatched’ look include cheek filler, jawline filler, chin filler, nose filler, forehead filler, and temple filler.
Fillers are minimally invasive, meaning that you won’t have to go under the knife and will not have to deal with the physical and social downtime that comes with surgery. They can last you anywhere from six months to two years and will give you that naturally chiseled look.
Plus: if you don’t like them, you can get them dissolved!
Do you have a double chin that is taking away from that beautiful jawline hiding underneath the fat? You’re not alone.
Many people, regardless of how much body fat is present, tend to store some extra fat around their jawlines leaving them with a less prominent lower face structure. This little bit of excess fat can be eliminated with a tool called CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting uses a vacuum applicator that sucks in your fat, to then freeze your fat without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. There is no downtime, meaning that you can return to work immediately after your session.
You should be able to see CoolSculpting results after about two months and most people will get anywhere from one to three sessions total!
Kybella is a minimally invasive injectable solution made up of deoxycholic acid, a chemical that breaks down fat. Kybella is used mainly under the chin and around the jawline to eliminate small pouches of fat such as the double chin.
Most people get two to four sessions total for the best results. For those of you who have that little bit of fat under your chin making it harder to bring out your jawline, Kybella may be the perfect option.
PDO thread lift
A PDO thread lift is a non surgical face lift that works through the insertion of barbed PDO threads under the skin, to then be pulled upward along with the skin to create a lifting effect.
PDO threads are often placed in the lower face and around the jawline, as well as the neck area to lift beginning stages of sagging and loose skin in the face. This also helps to improve the appearance of your lower face and jawline from the front and the side, bringing out the overall structure of your face.
Generally speaking there are a lot of non surgical options out there that can help you shape your face and jawline. Some people swear by gua sha, while others claim that lemon water is the key to all their solutions.
Ultimately, while these “hacks” may improve the appearance of your jawline, depending on how severe your case is, you may need a little extra help to really bring it out. That is where the minimally invasive cosmetic procedures come into play.
Again, New York is filled with medical spas that offer these treatments, so before you go ahead and schedule at just any place, be sure to consult with a trained and board certified professional to confirm that you are a candidate for the treatment and that that is the doctor you want to be working on you!
