One of the hallmarks of a masculine face is a defined jaw and chin. Unfortunately for some men, a weak jawline can simply come down to genetics – but that doesn’t mean surgery is the only option for a stronger, more defined look. One exciting new type of injectable filler is specifically designed with men’s cosmetic needs in mind, offering a non-surgical way to contour the jaw. Dr. Evan Ransom, San Francisco’s most premier facial plastic surgeon, is an Ivy League educated and trained expert in aesthetics, including non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers and cosmetic injections. Here’s what to know about Volux, the newest dermal filler from Juvéderm, and how it can help you achieve a more chiseled look.
Dermal fillers are a type of injectable treatment that adds volume to the skin. Using a crystal-clear gel, fillers can augment and restore different areas of the face while still looking and feeling completely natural. Dermal fillers like Volux are made with hyaluronic acid, an ingredient naturally found in the skin. This component is effective at attracting moisture in your body, creating volume. Some dermal fillers provide very subtle volume while others create significant and more noticeable definition. Volux is a very thick formulation that mimics the natural contours and feel of the jawline, meaning it’s indistinguishable from the natural bone.
Jawline contouring is nothing new when it comes to dermal fillers. Previously, other types of fillers were used off-label to create a more masculine look. Volux, however, is a filler dedicated to this specific cosmetic need – and in fact, is the first of its kind. Because of its thick formula, it can sculpt and redefine the lower face in the following ways:
Contouring the jawline comes down to the skill and artistic eye of your injector. Using Volux, your injector can produce incredible results that flatter your natural features – without looking overdone.
Your Volux treatment begins with a consultation with our experienced team led by Dr. Ransom. You’ll discuss the look you want to achieve and go over your complete health history to make sure Volux is the best possible option for your goals. If you determine you want to move forward, Volux can be administered right away. Your treatment site will be cleaned and the product will be injected into the skin. You’ll feel only a slight pinch during this process and will see instantly noticeable results. Once you’ve achieved your ideal results, you can go about the rest of your day.
Dermal fillers require some minor aftercare steps, and our team will make sure you know how to take care of your results. You may have some minor bruising or tenderness for the first few days, and it’s best to avoid extreme heat and exercise for 24 hours. With the right aftercare, Volux can last for over a year, making it an extremely cost-effective way to achieve a more masculine look.
Dr. Ransom is thrilled to now offer Volux at our world-class San Francisco office. To meet with our team for a consultation, contact us online or call today.
