Facial Contouring: Beautification and Masculinization
Contouring has been a popular buzzword for years and it is often mentioned in the beauty/makeup industry to accentuate certain facial features. Contouring can show lifted, defined cheeks bones and it can also define other areas of the face including the nose, jawline and the chin. Contouring with makeup can include light and dark makeup to help create illusions and shadows and highlights. It is common for women to desire to highlight their cheekbones because it is a sign of youth and lifted face.
While makeup can do wonders, did you know that dermal fillers can help supplement and help change your existing bone structure? Facial contouring with dermal fillers can lift areas and pull areas up that have lost elasticity. FDA approved fillers such as Restylane Lyft, Juvéderm Voluma and Radiesse help change the shape of the face. For example, an ideal face shape is heart shaped or contoured with strong cheekbones and jawline.
Cheek and Jawline Contouring: Masculinization and Beautification
One should always start with the cheeks when doing facial contouring because often when a person determines our age, we look at the eyes and the surrounding area, cheeks and under eyes. Celebrities that come to mind with strong jawlines are people like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
For men it is imperative to have a chiseled jawline as evolution has determined this is a sign of attractiveness. There are points on the face that can be contoured with dermal fillers including, the mid face, square chin and jawline to help achieve a more masculine, rugged appearance.
On the other hand, for women there are areas of the face that we can highlight and make more feminine such as contouring the cheekbones and chin. These areas anchor the face and help tighten and pull it back, so using dermal fillers to restore volume loss will lift the lower face.
Dermal fillers are an amazing option to really make those cheekbones “pop”. Using dermal fillers for facial contouring can also restore balance to the face. Whether it’s a result of genetics or environmental factors, such as sleeping predominantly on one side of the face, fillers can correct asymmetry as well.
Consultations are available, usually at little or no cost, so you can see how dermal fillers can help you achieve your desired result.
