Jaw and Chin Fillers. How to Easily Improve Your Chin and Jawline

In this era of Botox and dermal fillers, you may have heard about jaw and chin fillers. The procedure is very popular among both men and women. Nowadays, dermal fillers are not only useful to decrease fine lines and wrinkles; they go far beyond sculpting your face and redefining your features.

Whether you are having a troublesome relationship with your face due to the appearance of jolts or have a weak chin, this procedure could be the perfect solution for you. No surgery, no pain, and almost zero downtime!

Too good to be true? Keep reading and find out why dermal filler injections are the little miracle workers in today’s cosmetic industry.

Let’s Talk About Jolts and Weak Chins

As we age, there is a loss of bone and volume in our faces. With a shrunken jaw, the soft tissues lose their strong framework. Hence the skin starts to sag with the dreaded appearance of jolts and wrinkles.

On top of that, skin loses some of its youthful elasticity resulting in nasolabial folds, mental creases, and the famous marionette lines, which are wrinkles that go from the corners of our mouth downwards to the jawline.

The aging process is truly unforgiven! However, you may not be dealing with wrinkles and jolts. You could be a young man/woman facing the painful truth behind a naturally given poorly-defined jaw or weak chin. Having a soft chin can disturb the harmony between the rest of your facial features, undermining your self-esteem and confidence.

Am I a Good Candidate for Chin and Jaw Fillers?

Almost anyone can have dermal fillers to improve their jawline or chin profile. You just need to have some bone structure to work on.

Then, your doctor will be able to shape and contour your lower face features by injecting the fillers in strategic points, defining and lifting problematic areas.

How exactly Do Chin and Jaw Fillers Work?

Most dermal fillers used are hyaluronic acid-based gel substances. This is a natural molecule found in our bodies with the ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water. Also, when injected under the skin, it can stimulate your collagen production, giving your skin a plumped and tighter appearance.

There are other types of fillers (off-label) used, like polycaprolactone (PCL) and calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), although to a lesser extent.

These substances have a great capacity to expand soft tissue and are very thick/dense because they are supposed to replace or imitate the bone structure and stay put where they are injected.

Why not Have Silicone or Botox Injections?

A long time ago, “free silicone” was very famous as a permanent dermal filler. However, it is not used anymore because of the high risks of migration and infection. Now, Botox is a whole different story.

Botox is not injected to fill or add volume! It is a neurotoxin that weakens muscle movements, reducing dynamic wrinkles and the appearance of fine lines on your face.

When it comes to jowls, they are not always secondary to excess fat in that area or loss of bone structure. Sometimes, they are caused by the neck muscle pulling too much of the skin downward! That’s why many patients can benefit from combined procedures (Botox plus dermal fillers) to reduce the appearance of jolts and tighten the neck area.

Jawline and Chin Fillers Procedure.

In the first consultation, your doctor will assess your case and listen to your goals and expectations to make a personalized treatment plan.

He will give you some recommendations like: avoiding blood thinners (including aspirin), herbal supplements, and anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen one week before the procedure. Also, avoid drinking alcohol two days previous and having any skincare treatment containing retinol or glycolic acid.

Although this is not a painful procedure, your doctor could apply some anesthetic cream containing lidocaine to numb the area so that you won’t feel pain or great discomfort.

The doctor will use a small needle or cannula to inject the filler in strategic points (0,25-0,5 ml per site) under the skin and above the bone, defining the jawline and projecting or lengthening the chin, if necessary. This will give you a better profile, improving your double chin and softening jowls.

The whole process could take between 30-45 minutes, with visible immediate results, even considering mild swelling. However, you should expect nearly two weeks for the fillers to settle and see the final results.

What Can I Expect After the Procedure?

Expected side effects are some swelling, bruising, redness, sensitivity, or tenderness. However, they generally subside in 2-3 days. In case of pain, only use paracetamol.

You shouldn’t touch your face for the first 6 hours; no makeup or exercise for 24 hours post treatment. Wash your face with water and a gentle cleanser for a few days. Also, avoid hard chewing, direct sunlight exposure, saunas, steam rooms, and facial treatments (exfoliation and peelings) for two weeks.

The risk of serious adverse effects, like injection into a blood vessel, is very rare. That’s why you have to put yourself in the best professional hands and choose a board-certified medical professional using high quality products. Do not cheap out when it comes to your face!

How Long Do Chin and Jaw Fillers Last?

Jaw and chin fillers can last between 12-18 months. It varies from person to person because it depends on the brand, the type, the amount of filler injected, the depth, and specially the metabolism. Remember that the hyaluronic acid filler breaks down over time, and your body reabsorbs it.

With diminished results between 9-12 months, you should expect touch-ups every six months to maintain the results.

Jaw Fillers for Men

While women aim for slimmer jawlines, men dream of chiseled profiles with perfectly angled jaws and straight lines. All of this is possible with jawline filler treatments, considering and understanding the key differences in facial anatomy of both genders.

It’s all about feminine curves versus straight lines. Square jawlines versus oval/heart-shaped ones!

Are There Other Options?

Indeed, there are other procedures that you could have done to improve your jawline or chin appearance. However, they can be costly, painful, invasive, or not offer you long-lasting results.

Chin augmentation surgery could be a permanent solution if you have a small or weak chin. Nevertheless, this procedure carries risks, as with any surgery, and requires a long and painful recovery period.

Also, you could try Coolsculpting to freeze and kill the fat cells, causing an apparent slim down of the jaw and neckline, or the Kybella, which is an injection to dissolve fat cells. Still, these procedures don’t offer any guarantees or long-lasting results and require multiple sessions.

A Final Word

Jaw and chin filler treatments are an effective non-surgical solution for your jawline contouring. They can provide a strong framework, enhancing the lower half of your face.

However, you shouldn’t look at your chin or jawline in an isolated way. The goal is to strive for perfect facial harmony, taking into account your natural structure. So, just as every face is different, the treatment will be tailored to your needs so you can be the best version of yourself!
