08 Feb The Top Three Treatments for Non-surgical Facial Contouring
Today’s advanced injection techniques are popular with women and men of all ages, helping to achieve a range of subtle changes to the face, from precise facial contouring and volume enhancement to slimming and sculpting.
Our clients come to us seeking a range of outcomes, from a more contoured jawline, more pronounced cheeks or a reduced double chin – and there are now safe and effective non-surgical solutions can help you reach almost any aesthetic goal.
At a detailed, tailored consultation with an experienced team like ours at one of two Melbourne locations, we discuss your individual needs and goals, focusing on a natural, balanced look. Each of these three sought-after treatments can work individually or in combination for a specific result, creating the gold standard in facial contouring.
Our doctor-led team at Lumea Aesthetics has been using dermal fillers for many years across hundreds of clients to augment facial contours, decrease wrinkles and to correct areas of skin laxity. Dermal fillers are so effective because they contain high-tech water-binding molecules that have the capacity to retain 1000 times their own weight in water. Once injected under the skin, they are excellent materials for facial contouring and sculpting.
Today’s dermal fillers are highly versatile and functional, with specialised formulas for augmenting the lips and chin, lifting the cheek area or sculpting the jawline. Research has shown that filler injections can stimulate collagen production, leading to fresher-looking skin in the long term. Longevity of dermal fillers has also increased over the years, with results typically lasting 6-24 months, depending on the filler type and location of the injection.
Facial slimming injections
This treatment is another form of injectable treatment that is particularly helpful if you tend to grind your teeth at night, causing muscle pain and tension in the jawline area. In this case, muscle-relaxing injections – the same product used in anti-wrinkle treatments – can minimise the effects of an overactive masseter muscle.
Sometimes facial slimming is done for personal aesthetic reasons. Although a square jawline is often sought after particularly by men, a condition called muscle hypertrophy can cause the jawline to become very broad, and so a similar muscle relaxing treatment can restore a slimmer jawline.
There are a few key areas that are most popular to target with fat-dissolving injections. Chin fat – also called submental fat – is certainly one of them, and can develop for a number of reasons, and it’s not always related to weight gain; sometimes the aging process can cause loose skin and excess fat to form in the submental region.
Fat dissolving injections use a synthetic version of a bile salt that our bodies produce naturally when we lose weight. By strategically injecting it under the chin, the pharmaceutical compound destroys fat cells, giving the lower face a slimmer and more contoured appearance.
Excess deposits around the bra area across the back and sides are also a favourite for fat-dissolving injections; we’ve helped boost the confidence of many women with this favourite treatment that leads to a smoother silhouette. The results are permanent, although several sessions may be necessary for optimum fat reduction.
