Hyaluronic acid is used to give volume to your skin and facial expression without altering your natural appearance. In the Mandibular Angle Definition or Facial Contouring procedure, injections with Hyaluronic acid are carefully applied in very small volumes with a very fine needle under the skin. The gel adds volume into the skin below wrinkles, plumping and smoothing.
What Profiling can do:
- Lip augmentation and contouring.
- Rhinomedelation or liquid nose job.
- Hyaluronic acid lift.
- Revitalization and hydration of the skin.
- Removes wrinkles and furrows.
- Elimination of smile folds.
- Elimination of scars on the face.
There are different types of dermal fillers, the most commons are Radiesse and Ellanse.
What is Radiesse?
Is comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a natural substance that it’s found in our bones. When used in a dermal filler, the calcium microspheres are suspended in a smooth gel carrier. This type of filler it’s known for the natural results it provides, enhancing the fullness of facial contours.
What is Ellanse?
Ellanse also stimulates collagen production in the skin, which provides long-term benefits, helping the skin regain what has naturally been lost with age. It's composed of microspheres suspended in a carrier gel, this gel consists of Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC), and the microspheres PolyCaproLactone (PCL).
Profiling in Cancun Mexico: Step-by-Step
Before the procedure starts, strategic points on the face may be marked as the appropriate injection sites for the fillers, also photographs may be taken of the areas to be treated.
The injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. Pain at the injection site may be ameliorated by the use of a very cold instrument to relax the skin, an anesthetic to numb the skin, or local anesthesia. While not painless, the injections are usually easily tolerated.
Injection usually takes only a few moments per site. Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the whole process may be as short as 15 minutes, or as long as an hour.
Once the results are deemed satisfactory, any markings will be cleaned off. Ice can help to reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort. Although the area may feel a bit tender for a day or two, it is usually not painful enough to require any medication.
Recovery after Profiling

Avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area, unless is instructed by the doctor. All kinds of exercise are strictly prohibited in the next 24 hours after undergoing the treatment.

The results should be immediately and after healing, your face should feel natural with better structure, shape, and volume. Depending on skin type, lifestyle and, age, dermal fillers can last from up to 12 months.
