Treatments for Reshaping Your Face

By August 25, 2014Facial Rejuvenation

We can do a lot for our bodies. We can diet, exercise, stay out of the sun, and treat our skin to stay young and healthy for years and years. However, age has a way of showing up on the face, no matter what we do with our diets and lifestyles. Dont you wish there were some kind of facial treatment that could reshape and contour your face to match the image you want to see in the mirror?

Well, actually, there are a number of treatments you can choose from. From at-home care to med spa services and plastic surgery, you can actually stay young with the help of modern medicine. Lets talk about your options and whats best for you.

Dermal Filler Injections

If you want plumper lips, a smooth brow, or to get rid of crows feet, dermal filler injections are the perfect solution. They last several months and, with good skin care habits, can keep you looking and feeling younger than your years. However, if you want to change the actual shape of your face, you will need to choose a slightly more involved treatment.

Traditional Plastic Surgery

If you are unhappy with the size of your nose, the point of your chin, or the way your skin hangs loosely from your jaw, you can opt for traditional cosmetic surgery. The procedures to fix these problems differ in intensity and in how long recovery will take. Some are more invasive than others. However, there is an alternative, called facial sculpting or facial contouring.

Facial Sculpting

During this minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedure, youll have fatty deposits on your face removed to change the shape of your face. You can have fat removed from your cheeks to create a slimmer look and to minimize smile lines. Fat may be removed from your jaw line to give you a more defined, younger looking jaw, as well.

Sometimes facial contouring is done in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery, such as reshaping the jawbone or inserting implants into the cheekbones, for a more attractive overall effect. Other times, the procedure is done in combination with med spa treatments, such as microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, or laser skin resurfacing.

You can have the face youve been dreaming of, and you may be able to do it with minimally invasive surgery that has a very quick recovery time. To learn more about dermal fillers and facial sculpting, call Juvia Med Spa today at (817) 427-3700 for a consultation, or email us at
