Whether you keep getting distracted by Superman’s sharp jawline that is proudly owned by our very own Henry Cavill or you’re secretly dreaming about Keira Knightley’s perfect jawline, there are easy ways you can realise a tighter jawline yourself. You can achieve a jawline as sharp as knives by undergoing particular treatments that have scientifically proven to tighten jawlines. In this blog, we’ll talk you through five treatments that help you to achieve the jawline of your dreams. Are you over the age of 30 or have you not been blessed with a razor-sharp jawline, our team of specialist skincare experts will tell you everything there is to know.
1. HIFU Treatment
If you’ve never heard of HIFU treatment before, it stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound which is a relatively new cosmetic treatment that is used for skin tightening. HIFU treatment is considered to be a painless replacement for facelifts as it helps with wrinkle reduction, tightens saggy skin around the neck area and enhances jawline definition. HIFU treatment targets the layers of skin just below the surface by using focused ultrasound energy, which will cause the skin tissue to heat up rapidly. This will cause cellular damage, which might sound confusing, but it helps to stimulate the cells to produce more collagen, with the result of firmer skin.
2. Thermage treatment
Another non-invasive facial treatment is thermage, which can help to tighten the skin by using radiofrequency therapy. Similar to HIFU treatment, the radiofrequency technology used with thermage treatment heats the deeper layers of the skin. This is done to stimulate new collagen to start producing which in time helps to create firmer and smoother skin. Most people experience immediate results after thermage treatment and these results will improve during a period of nine months, as your body is producing more and more collagen. Your skin will be firmer, smoother and have a youthful appearance. An easy way to do a similar treatment from the comfort of your own home is by using the Dr Dennis Gross Spectralite Faceware Pro, a medical-grade mask equipped with light treatment options that help to reduce signs of ageing.
3. Exercises to define the jawline
A natural approach to achieve a more defined jawline is by exercising it. Exercising your jaw can be done whenever you want, while watching a movie, doing the laundry or during work. You can either use a special ball for your jaw to exercise it, or you can simply do exercises by opening and closing your mouth and clenching your jaw repeatedly. Don’t overdo it with the exercises, this can be damaging to your jaw. Take five minutes of your time every day to train your jaw muscles. Start off by doing a neck curl-up, which helps to activate neck muscles. Vowel exercises are great as well to tighten your jaw, especially when you’re creating an “O” and “E” sound repeatedly. Finish off with a tongue twister and a chin-up.
4. Facial massage tools
Massage tools for your face and skin have gotten more and more popular over the past years. Many influencers are using facial rollers such as jade rollers or a gua sha, which is a v-shaped tool that you scrape down your neck and jaw. The MZ Skin Germanium Roller is a facial massage tool that removes excess fluid and encourages lymphatic drainage, giving the appearance of a more refined face and jawline. By using acupressure functions, the skin roller gradually presses key healing points which stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities.
5. Ultimate skin firming products
Another way to define your jawline, without actually undergoing treatment, is by adding skin-tightening products to your skincare routine. The serums by Dr Levi Switzerland help to tighten the skin around the eyes, cheeks and jawline by using stem cell technology. Dr Levi Switzerland serums have clinically proven to be effective to create a more refined jawline. The lifting and firming facial mask by 111Skin is a favourite with top models and is used to create firmer skin. The facial mask consists of three different masks, each targeting a specific area. The lower mask is formulated with multiple collagen-stimulating properties to improve volume and plumpness around the jawline, cheeks and lips. Say goodbye to your double chin and saggy face, your model-like jawline is in the making!
