Always wanted to have a define jawline? That’s possible. The cosmetic doctor of Kliniek Dokter Frodo has developed a special treatment method in which the doctor injects a precisely measured volume in various places. This lifts the face, including the jaw and chin, without affecting the character of your face. You look better without the outside world truly understanding why. By using anaesthetic and a cannula, the treatment is virtually painless. The most important thing is that you experience the treatment as comfortable. After the treatment, the skin can be massaged and/or cooled with a cold pack.
Sagging jawline or hamster cheeks?
A well-defined jawline slowly changes with age. Due to aging, the jawline weakens. This is caused by volume loss. This is a result of a natural decrease in muscle and bone mass. The first signs become visible around your 30th. With some, there is even visible aging before being 30 years old. With a local filler treatment with hyaluronic acid, this process is easily reversed and life becomes enjawable again.
Although you might expect that volume loss with hamster cheeks starts at the jaw, it is usually the temples, cheekbones, and nasolabial fold that fall prey to this. In Kliniek Dokter Frodo, we help a lot of people who are around 45 years old and have had enough of their hamster cheeks. We do this by smoothing out the ‘weak links’ with extra volume. This gives you a strong set of contours again.
On average, a treatment takes thirty minutes to an hour. The exact duration depends on the size and complexity of the treatment. There is no recovery time, which means you can immediately see the results. Do you have a well-defined jawline like Angelina Jolie, Olivia Wilde or Brad Pitt? Then you expect that your jawline will keep its well-defined, strong shape. A well-defined jawline can be improved by placing the fillers on JW3 and C6 (see the image with the codes). For more information, go to the MD Codes page on our website.
If your jawline is a bit on the undefined side, then you may be able to enhance it with injections. Temporary fillers can give your jaw and chin more definition. If you have a small, rounded jawline, then you usually have more fine lines, lose skin and dents. A small, rounded jawline can be improved by placing fillers, mainly in the chin region (C4) and the jaw corner (JW1). For the best results, it is also necessary to place the filler directly on the cheekbone.
Before the treatment
Prior to the treatment, you will always get a consultation. This consultation is free of charge and without obligation. During the consultation we will discuss the various treatment methods and you will meet the consultant and doctor who, if desired, will treat you. Of course, your wishes and expectations will also be discussed during the consultation, and we will look at the possibilities we see for you specifically.
We will map your face according to our Magic Markets Method. We will also ask about your medical history, previous treatments, and any use of medication in order to eliminate risks and ensure that we can help you in a safe way.
Possibly, we will create a 3D image of your face. This allows us to better analyse the changes. This 3D image can be edited by the doctor, which means the desired result will become visible before the treatment.
the best chin treatment
Is your chin too short or to small? Dents, wrinkles or fine lines on the chin? A craquelé skin? If the chin is too small or too short in relation to the rest of the face, we can restore this into proportion with injecting fillers. When you add extra volume to the chin, your chin gets bigger and more well-defined. This treatment is not invasive and basically painless (in contrast to an operation).
Have you already had a short chin since childhood? Then we will add volume in the middle (C1, C2 and C4). But is the volume loss originate after your childhood? Then we will treat a wider area.
To reverse sagging of the chin by loss of volume, we use hyaluronic acid (Juvéderm and Restylane). When injecting this hyaluronic acid just below the skin, the skin will get strengthened. This has a lifting effect and will improve the skin from the inside out.
To neutralize dents, wrinkles and/or fine lines we also use Botox. Botox relaxes the muscle which pulls the skin from the inside and squeezing the orange peel texture skin out. With just a small amount of Botox a lot of irregularities will disappear.
after the treatment
Immediately after the treatment, you will experience a numb feeling. Exceptionally, there can also be some swelling. This disappears over time. In even more exceptional cases, there may be some bruising after the treatment. This also disappears over time. Should you be the exception to the rule, then avoid sunlight to prevent pigmentation.
Hyaluronic acid takes two weeks to become fixed into the surrounding tissue. The gel needs a few days to settle. In the first week after treatment, the hyaluronic acid may shift and look somewhat irregular. During the check-up – two weeks after the treatment – we can correct this if necessary.
The hyaluronic acid is slowly broken down after 1,5 to 2 years. However, there are large individual differences. For most people, it remains much longer. We recommend not waiting until the results are completely gone, but coming back before everything is broken down. This prevents a yo-yo effect.
local treatment or liquid facelift
Depending on the amount of the sagging of the jawline and the reason of it, we will advise you the treatment that will suits you best. This will be a local filler or a Liquid Facelift. Both treatments are non-invasive and basically painless.
In case of hamster cheeks when 45 years or older, we always recommend to do a Liquid Facelift. The cause of the problem is then mostly the volume loss at the sleep and cheekbones.
Whether you choose to be treated with a local filler or a Liquid Facelift, the result will always be a more fresh and fruity look.

We can administer a topical anaesthetic to minimize any discomfort. Most clients report little or no pain during treatment.
