Correction of the mental area with Aptos Threads

The jawline plays a crucial role in balancing the facial proportions, facial profile, and defining the lower face. With age, under the influence of gravity, soft tissues gradually shift downward and the skin loses its elasticity. As a result, the lower face becomes less distinct, cheeks droop, and cheekbones become less expressive. The appearance of jowls is explained by the weakening of tone of maseteric muscle and the displacement of the tissues down the face. The first signs of aging become noticeable at the age of 35-45. Omission of tissues and deterioration of lower face not only becomes aesthetically unfavorable, but also significantly adds age.


Jawline can effectively be corrected with APTOS threads.
