Facial Contouring Q&A
What is facial contouring?
Facial contouring refers to treatments that allow you to redefine the contours of your face by adding, restructuring, or subtracting volume. While there are many surgeries available for facial contouring, there are also nonsurgical options.
One of the most well-known and widely used nonsurgical facial contouring treatments is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectables with soft gel-like consistencies that a dermatologist or aesthetic medicine specialist can place under your skin. Depending on the type and its ingredients, results last for one year or longer.
Other injections, such as Botulinum toxin (Botox® and Dysport®), can also contribute to facial contouring. Botulinum toxin specializes in treating fine facial lines like crow’s feet and forehead lines and can also soften your jawline.
What can I do with facial contouring?
There are many cosmetic goals that facial contouring can accomplish. You can work with your provider at Martha Viera Dermatology to create a treatment plan that reaches your goals while keeping your best natural features.
With facial contouring, you can:
Minimize wrinkles and lines
Minimize areas of sagging, like jowls or under eyes
Soften the jaw
Make your face more symmetrical
Add volume to the lips
Some facial contouring treatments can even give your face a slight lifting effect, which is similar to a facelift but not as drastic since it doesn’t involve any surgery
Am I a good candidate for facial contouring?
To find out if you’re a candidate for facial contouring, you must visit Martha Viera Dermatology for a treatment consultation. You’ll discuss your goals, your medical history, and the medications you take with a trustworthy provider. They ask about your skin health as well as your general health before recommending any treatments.
Your provider guides you to safe treatment options that work for your goals. If it’s not the right time for facial contouring, they may be able to recommend treatments that improve the health of your skin. They also let you know if there’s anything you need to do before you can safely get a facial contouring procedure.
