Your skin doctor might use anti-wrinkle injections to reshape your face in such a condition. Let’s learn how.
Anti-wrinkle injections can help partially relax the muscles where they are injected. As a result, you can still speak or chew; however, as the muscle doesn’t work as much as it is supposed to, it becomes smaller. Moreover, if you grind your teeth, this treatment will help you overcome that habit.

It will, in turn, help your facial muscles recover and allow the Botox chemicals to work to get the desired results.
Dermal Fillers for V-Shape Face
Dermal fillers can have different levels of thickness. For example, the thinner fillers are used for lips, while the thicker ones are used for adjusting the shape of various facial features. Furthermore, dermatologists use this treatment method to shape your chin, cheek, or jawline to help your face appear heart-shaped.
This treatment procedure helps add definition to your mandible, i.e., low jaw bone’s shape.
These are injections of hyaluronic acid that skin doctors administer in various facial areas. Hyaluronic acid is a natural acid found most commonly in skin cells. However, this acid is used up due to ageing, causing a reduction in elastin and collagen. As a result, your skin will lose its elasticity and volume. Injecting hyaluronic acid in targeted facial areas can help add more volume, thereby changing your face’s shape and structure. Moreover, it also hydrates skin cells, providing them with the needed nourishment.
The dermal filler uses the following methods to change the shape of your jaw. Let’s discuss them further.
Direct Jaw Fillers
Injecting dermal fillers directly into your jawline areas can help change its shape. For example, your dermatologist might increase the doses of the content (hyaluronic acid) to targeted areas in small amounts. It further restores the original shape of your jawline, reducing the sagging skin. As a result, your jawline will appear smooth and distinct.
It targets the structure of your chin to change the shape of your entire jawline. It helps reduce sagging skin and add a distinct profile to create a smooth and tighter jawline. Besides, injecting dermal fillers in the areas between your jowl and chin can help reduce the appearance of jowls to give your face a more V-shape.
Often, natural ageing can cause cheeks to lose fat and volume as the fat pads move to the lower part of your face. In addition, it causes sagging skin at your jawline. In such cases, your skin doctor might inject dermal fillers in your cheek areas to add volume and restore the skin to its original position. Finally, it helps create a sharper jawline.
The result can last for one to three years based on the location and types of fillers used. If used in areas that don’t move a lot, such as the nose or chin, the result can last longer. In addition, you need to keep up with follow-up appointments to help your doctors ensure that the fillers are set in well.
