How to sculpt a defined jawline with RF microneedling and HIFU
The jawline is a 2021 hot topic and not without good reason. Both the dermis and the deeper superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) layer deteriorate as we age, resulting in skin laxity, wrinkles, and the dreaded sagging jowls.
Now more than ever, our younger clients are aware of the need to keep the jawline looking razor sharp. Google searches for the term “how to sharpen your jawline” were up 200% year on year in May this year, and the #jawlinecheck on TikTok has a collection of videos on jawline definition with over 200 million cumulative views.
What options are there for jawline treatment?
The good news is there are many non-invasive options to help create a more defined jawline. Energy-based devices that offer skin tightening can help sculpt and lift the jawline while maintaining a natural appearance.
Here at Lynton, we like to combine radiofrequency microneedling with high-intensity focussed ultrasound (HIFU) for the ultimate jawline lift.
Radiofrequency microneedling creates both physical and thermal stress in the dermis, resulting in the proliferation of growth factors, which power the creation of new strong collagen to lift, firm, and tighten.
HIFU goes a little deeper to the SMAS layer – this is the layer a surgeon physically lifts in a facelift. HIFU remodels and rebuilds the deteriorating SMAS layer to give skin back its snap.
Radiofrequency microneedling with vacuum suction
The Radiofrequency microneedling applicator on the Lynton Focus Dual is unique in that it has added vacuum suction.
Treating the jawline can often be tricky with all those curves; the vacuum helps hold the handpiece securely in place, offering a stable and secure treatment application.
Vacuum suction also helps the microneedles to penetrate evenly into the skin to give uniform heating from the radiofrequency, creating instant contraction of collagen to tighten the jawline and create the coveted chiselled effect.
Using HIFU to lift, firm, and tighten the jawline
A HIFU face lift creates deep focus points of energy in the dermis and SMAS layers to lift and tighten skin. The results can be immediate for an instant jawline lift.
As the skin’s wound healing response is triggered, the skin naturally tightens over time, and results continue to improve for up to 12 weeks post treatment.
Of course, around the jawline, it’s not just skin laxity we need to target but excess fat cells as well.
For facial treatments, the 4.5mm cartridge delivers a heat burst directly to fat cells triggering apoptosis (cell death) and eradicating unwanted double chins and sagging jowls. As a result, patients will see a real lifting, firming, and tightening of the jaw area.
Compared to other devices available on the market, the Focus Dual is not limited to facial treatments. Its HIFU technology can be delivered at a substantial depth with a 13mm cartridge available for body treatments.
Safe and effective jawline sculpting
Available exclusively on the Focus Dual, the Safety Assist Transducers (SAT) emit HIFU waves in a unique pattern that avoids unwanted overlap in the surface tissues.
This technology offers increased comfort during treatment, so much so that no anaesthetic is required, and treatment is genuinely comfortable for the client. Not only that, but treatments have virtually no downtime. Sound too good to be true? Try it for yourself and book a demonstration via the Lynton website today.
Working together, radiofrequency microneedling and HIFU offer a powerful solution to sagging jowls, redefining the jawline with a natural finish.
