Sculptra can improve jawline

Sculptra is a powerful volumizer. When volume is added to the face, it can "lift" the face. This can improve nasolabial lines, under eye bags, and jowls. Sculptra can also restore volume to the forehead and temples. In fact, anywhere volume is needed, sculptra can be used. I have even published my experience with sculptra in the breast to help reduce a visible breast implant after breast reconstruction. Because sculptra is difficult to work with, make sure to find a doctor experienced with it. Keep in mind, you will likely need about 3 treatments to get the final result that will last years.

Sculptra to pull up jawline

In the right situation Sculptra can pull up the jawline somewhat by adding volume and filling areas above, causing a lift-like effect. Sometimes thin strands can be injected along jawline to decrase the look of the jowls but must be done carefully to avoid causing  a heaviness to the area.

Sculpta can help jawlines

In the right patient who has sunken cheeks and slight sagging of the jowls. Volumization of the cheeks can help provide support that had been lost and the jowls can be lifted up slightly. Patients who have very "meaty" jowls won't get the same good result.

Only if the sag is created by loss of volumn in the face or weakening of the jawline.

There a different reasons for weakening ot the jawline.

This can include changes in the teeth or temporal-mandibular joints, weight loss, and severe sundamage to the skin among others.  Each requires a different approach.

Sculptra is NOT to be used in the lips or lower or upper lids.  In these areas there is a high risk of adverse results.
