From “Brotox” to facelifts, Delray Beach, FL dermatologist Francesca Lewis, MD says there has undoubtedly been an uptick in male interest in cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery as of late. “In recent years, there has been a definite increase in the influx of male patients seeking cosmetic treatments, with a particularly heightened interest in injectable procedures,” says Dr. Lewis. The latest hot spot to be treated by this influx of new patients: the jawline.

“Among these offerings, Juvéderm Volux XC stands out as a distinctive product, possessing a universal appeal to both men and women aspiring to achieve a meticulously sculpted, well-defined, and elegantly contoured jawline, says Dr. Lewis. “It is noteworthy that a substantial number of men harbor self-consciousness concerning their lower facial region, often resorting to growing facial hair in an attempt to conceal such insecurities.”

This rang especially true for 29-year-old Ryan who says he has been unhappy with his jawline for as long as he can remember. He describes it as “soft and undefined,” and says it’s something he’s been self-conscious about since high school.

Recently, Ryan decided to do something about his jawline. He heard about Juvéderm Volux XC, the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler on the market for improving jawline definition, and decided to make a change with help from Dr. Lewis herself. 

Ahead, Ryan shared his experience with the jaw-transforming filler.

NewBeauty: How long have you been unhappy with your jawline?

Ryan: I’ve been unhappy with my jawline for as long as I’ve been aware of my lack of a jawline. It is something I’ve been self conscious about since high school, which as a nearly 30-year-old, is a long time to struggle mentally about something that could have been addressed sooner.

NB: What were your initial thoughts going into your Volux appointment?

R: I was hesitant to believe some of the results I’d seen online because they were such drastic transformations, but they gave me hope that I’d experience similar results.

NB: How was the appointment? Any pain or discomfort?

R: The appointment was great—the facilities and staff were fantastic, and I was immediately reassured that I was an “ideal candidate” for Volux XC as soon as they saw my jawline. Thanks to the powerful numbing cream that was used I didn’t feel any pain during the process, but it was an unfamiliar sensation when the filler was being placed. It was not painful, but new and a bit uncomfortable—it certainly would not be a deterrent to getting Volux XC again in the future.

For 3-4 days following the procedure there was tenderness along my jawline, mostly noticed when making a frown. The pain was similar to muscle soreness after working out, and naturally faded over a few days.

NB: What was your reaction when you first saw your new jawline in the mirror?

R: The most surprising aspect of Volux XC was the immediate change in my facial structure. I didn’t know that the results would be immediate. One second they’re injecting it along my jawline and the next I’m looking in a mirror at my newly crafted jawline! Seeing an immediate change to address my biggest insecurity was such a relief, and I’m so thankful to feel more confident in photos and everyday life now.

NB: What has it done for your confidence/self-esteem?

R: Volux XC has made it so that my jawline is no longer a thought in my day-to-day life. Previously I was hyper-aware of my lack of a jawline and how my profile would look in photos or to anyone looking at me from the side. Following Volux XC those thoughts went away, so while I’m not constantly thinking about how I now have a jawline, I’m no longer worrying about not having one—and for me, that’s exactly what I needed to feel better on a daily basis.

NB: Would you continue to get Volux treatments? Do you think it is worth the investment?

R: Absolutely. Now that the foundation is set, Volux XC will become an annual process for me to maintain my new jawline. I can’t go back to the baseline now that I’ve seen the results.

What the Doctor Says:

“Ryan was treated with 4 syringes of Juvéderm Volux XC in the jawline. Previous to treatment he had a lack of definition in the jawline region with a sloping transition to the neck area and a weak mandibular angle. By utilizing treatment with Juvéderm Volux XC we were able to create enhanced definition at the jawline and to create a more pronounced angle of the jawline. We advised him that he may even want to consider a second round of treatment in 1-2 months to build even further on the current amazing results.”

The Bottom Line: 

Dr. Lewis says the approval of Juvéderm Volux XC has introduced a paradigm shift, significantly changing the landscape of cosmetic interventions. “I anticipate that as more men become exposed to and acquainted with the transformative outcomes attainable through this treatment, there will likely be a significant increase in the volume of men seeking specialized procedures for the purpose of jawline enhancement.”

As always, but especially with this product, Dr. Lewis emphasizes the importance of seeking a qualified injector for your treatment. “Especially important when working with this particular product, the role of a qualified injector becomes especially pivotal. Ideally, individuals seeking these procedures should seek the services of a certified practitioner, preferably one with credentials as a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. This ensures a level of expertise vital for delivering optimal results.”
