Jawline enhancement with dermal fillers is a non-surgical procedure that can improve the shape and definition of the jawline and chin. For some, the aging process can lead to the descent of soft tissue and overlying skin on the mid and lower face, leading to the appearance of jowls. For others, genetics can lead to a poorly defined jawline. Filler injections in the jaw and chin area are an ideal alternative to facial plastic surgery procedures like a chin implant or a neck lift and are an effective non-surgical option to contour the jawline and chin by adding and sculpting volume in this area, rejuvenating the entire face with a more youthful look.

Benefits of Jawline Enhancement
Jawline enhancement has many benefits, including:
- Strengthens an underdeveloped or weak chin
- Creates a more attractive jawline
- Balances the facial anatomy
- Reduces the appearance of a double chin and/or jowls
- Minimizes chin dimpling
- Minimally-invasive treatment with no downtime
- Long-lasting results
What Kind of Filler is Used For Jawline Enhancement
There are many different kinds of dermal fillers, however the type most commonly used for jawline enhancement is composed of a hyaluronic acid (HA) formulation. This gel-like substance mimics the natural HA produced in the body. Some common HA fillers are Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, and Voluma. An excellent choice for jawline contouring is Juvederm Voluma XC, as it is FDA-approved for building volume in the face.
How Does Jawline Enhancement Work?
Jawline enhancement is a minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure. During a jawline contouring treatment, a dermal filler is injected into the jawline and chin area to build volume and fill out sagging or loose skin.
What to Expect During Your Jawline Enhancement Treatment
During your jawline enhancement treatment, your provider will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area and then swab it with a disinfectant. Then, according to your treatment plan, she’ll inject a dermal filler along the jawline and chin area with evenly-dispersed amounts to achieve the desired outcome.
Recovery After Jawline Enhancement
When it comes to non-surgical chin augmentation or jawline augmentation, there is no required recovery period following treatment and few side effects when an experienced provider performs the procedure. The most common side effects are mild bruising, swelling, and redness on and around the treatment area, which will subside gradually over several days. The final results can be seen approximately one week after jawline and chin enhancement treatment for most patients.
