A structured and strong jawline is certainly on the list of most-desired facial features. Men want the chiselled jawline of Johnny Depp and Robert Pattinson, while women want the contoured cheeks and jawline of Victoria Beckham.
Hollywood and beyond is full of what seems to be perfectly chiselled bone structures, which leaves us wondering whether it’s necessary to go under the knife to achieve it.
While there are many ways to get the desired jawline, such as exercises and surgery, thread lifting is also a popular treatment to get the look, and it doesn’t even require any surgery!
What Happens to Your Jawline as You Age?
In your twenties, you have great collagen support and your skin will be as supple, healthy and glowing as it will ever be. As you age, especially into your forties, you face starts losing its tightness and you lose fat that you had in your younger years.
There are many variations in genetics, however we generally lose fat in the middle of the face, temples, no matter what type of skin you have. This loss of fat in the mid-face results in sagging in the lower face resulting in jowling and also lower facial lines.
Our bone structure also changes as we age. The eye sockets become larger and change in shape, the cheekbones flatten, the hole that the nose sits on becomes larger and the jaw becomes shorter. The skin also becomes thinner and less elastic due to reduced production of collagen and elastin.
What is the Ideal Jawline?
Everyone has a different idea of what the ‘ideal’ jawline looks like, and what is the most attractive face shape, however certain face shapes are considered more attractive due to changing trends and certain celebs with desired jawlines being in the spotlight.
A study reported by the Telegraph found that “Scientists have used e-fits to create portraits of the most beautiful man and woman in the world – and say David Gandy and Natalie Portman are the closest real-life examples.”
Natalie Portman has an incredibly strong jawline and a heart shaped face, whereas David Gandy has an oval shaped face but an extremely prominent and sharp jaw, which many men would envy.
A jawline can also considerably impact the appearance of your lips, cheekbones, chin and other facial features.
How Can You Achieve the Ideal Jawline Without Surgery?
Thread lifting can be used to lift the face and neck without any surgery. It can not only redefine your face and neck, but it is also highly effective at lifting jowls, sagging skin, and can also treat lines and wrinkles.
The procedure is minimally invasive, has very little downtime, and offers results that can last up to 18 months!
It works by using threads which stimulate the cells in your skin to produce collagen, which helps to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. Both Silhouette Soft (with cones) and PDO threads (specially cut threads) stimulate collagen growth and tighten the skin and helps to tighten loose skin.
Both types of thread treatments can treat signs of aging on jowls, cheeks, brows and the jawline, while fine PDO threads can be used to ‘scaffold’ the face and stimulate collagen growth.
