There are many different factors that can cause your jawline to weaken over time, these include:
Genetics - The shape and physical structure of your jaw are influenced by your genetics – this means that as a result, you may inherit a weak jawline from a parent or grandparent.
Aging - As we age, the angle of our jaws increases, reducing the definition in the lower portion of your face. The volume of your jawbone is also decreased with age, resulting in a lack of support in the surrounding tissue, potentially causing it to sag.
Thumb-sucking - Young children frequently suck their thumbs in response to anxiety or stress. However, by the time they are five years old, most kids have stopped thumb-sucking. If a child maintains this behaviour, their jawbone's shape can alter. The teeth may migrate as a result of persistent thumb sucking, changing the jawline. Adults who thumb-sucked might also have a weak jawline. Thumb-sucking is more likely to alter the jaw in both age groups when it is practised frequently and repeatedly.
Overbite - When the top front teeth cross the bottom front teeth, this is referred to as an overbite. A weak jawline may result from the lower jaw being too far back as a result of this.
Eating soft foods - Your eating choices as a child may also have an impact on the contour of your jaw. Your jaw may be weak if you grew up eating mainly soft foods. Additionally, chewing tough meals creates a mechanical strain on your jawbone that accelerates bone remodelling.
Yes! A weak jawline can be improved with the right treatment and skincare routine. Our trained professionals at Model Standards offer a range of treatments, including Morpheus8, Forma, and Microneedling, to help improve the appearance of a weak jawline and restore a more youthful and attractive appearance.
Exercising the neck, chin, jaw, and other facial muscles can lead to subtle changes in your face, including sharper cheekbones and a more prominent jawline. However for more prominent, longer-lasting results we would recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our Model Standards clinicians to find the treatment best suited to you and your needs.
The timeline for seeing results from a weak jawline treatment can vary depending on the type of treatment being performed and the individual's skin type, health, and healing process. In some cases, results may be visible after just one treatment, while others may require multiple treatments to achieve the desired results. Our trained professionals at Model Standards will discuss the expected timeline for seeing results with you during a consultation and help you determine the best course of treatment for your goals and expectations.
In general, most patients begin to see some improvement in the appearance of their jawline within a few weeks of starting treatment, with optimal results becoming visible over the next several months as the skin continues to heal and rejuvenate.
All of our clients first come in for a consultation. The consultation is there to talk you through your options, give you a patch test and check for any medical issues. The consultation costs £50 but this comes off the price of the treatment package that you go with. At your consultation, one of our nurse clinicians will talk you through options and get you booked in for your first treatment.
