I thought facial contouring was a make-up technique. What is it really?
That’s an excellent question. Yes, facial contouring is technically a make-up technique, and facial contouring procedures basically have the same goal in mind: to reshape and contour the face. Facial contouring can be achieved a number of different ways, including through traditional cosmetic surgery and the use of dermal fillers. Let’s focus on the latter first. They have the ability to improve the appearance of deep facial wrinkles, folds, lines, and acne scars, enhance the lips, and contour facial features like the chin and cheeks.
Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Radiesse are an excellent alternative to more invasive cosmetic procedures, especially when it comes to facial contouring. They have the ability to improve the appearance of deep facial wrinkles, folds, lines, and acne scars, enhance the lips, and contour facial features like the chin and cheeks. Juvéderm, which is comprised of hyaluronic acid, is best for contouring and volumizing medium depth facial folds and wrinkles. This is because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body, and it absorbs more than 1,000 times its weight in water, easily filling in and plumping up the surface of the skin. With advanced injection techniques, Juvéderm can be used to lift and contour facial features for a natural-looking effect.
Hyaluronic acid also stimulates collagen production, for even longer lasting results.

If you don’t like your facial contouring results, they’re only temporary!
Radiesse is another popular dermal filler used for facial contouring, especially for filling in facial folds and lines. It is also used to smooth and contour smile lines or nasolabial folds, wrinkles at the corners of the mouth, facial recessions, and frown lines, and to restore volume in and around the cheeks and chin as well as correct asymmetrical features. Radiesse is unique in many ways, and offers distinct advantages over other dermal fillers – its unique contouring ability allows physicians to treat large areas of the face in one procedure. For the first three months after injection, Radiesse initially performs as a filler substance by plumping up the skin. Then thanks to its collagen-generating properties, Radiesse actually stimulates new tissue development for extended correction for up to two years. The results? Nothing short of amazing! There’s a reason Radiesse is the number one choice for significant facial contouring–it offers dramatic results, virtually no downtime, and is long lasting. Facial sculpting typically involves using implants in various areas of the face, along with using fat removal and reducing the bone by trimming it down in order to drastically change the natural contours of the face.
But are you looking for something more permanent? Then you should consider facial sculpting, which is a more traditional cosmetic procedure. Facial sculpting typically involves using implants in various areas of the face, along with using fat removal and reducing the bone by trimming it down in order to drastically change the natural contours of the face. Because facial sculpting is an invasive cosmetic procedure, it’s quite costly—and it involves a significant amount of downtime. But it’s the only permanent way to reshape and re-contour the face.
Of course, if you want to quickly and effortlessly contour your face, then check out some makeup artist techniques. Otherwise, we’d suggest trying out dermal fillers to achieve your desired look. Facial sculpting offers dramatic results that really turn back the clock.
