Schedule A Consultation

With jawline injections, you can achieve a more sculpted jaw and enhanced facial profile without the need for surgery or recovery.

Jawline Contouring or Sculpting of the Jawline is generally an option for 1 of 2 kinds of people: You’ve always had a weaker or less-defined jawline than you’d like, or your jawline has gotten worse with age, and generally you’re experiencing some jowling too (jowls are the skin and fat that gathers around your smile lines and droops downward).

Injectable treatments are not the only option to treat the jawline, but they have become increasingly popular and varied over the past couple of years. Dermal fillers, Botox and other neuromodulators, and Kybella can all be used to sculpt the jawline. The correct product and treatment plan for you will vary depending on the exact jawline contouring, chin augmentation, or other jawline enhancements you wish to make.

Today’s Best Options for Non-Surgical Jawline Sculpting with Injections

Neuromodulators – Slimming The Jawline

Botox used for jawline contouring to reduce muscles at the chin and jaw.
Neuromodulators like Botox can be used to treat TMJ, but not all who have this procedure are experiencing TMJ – that’s okay, this non-surgical treatment can be purely cosmetic.

Fillers – Making The Jawline Sharper 

A variety of fillers can be used – anything from Juvéderm to Radiesse – though the super soft fillers like Silk, Volbella, or Bellafill are not recommended for a non-surgical jawline enhancement.

Adding filler along the jawbone creates an effect of tightening skin and can be used to create a sharper edge of the jaw in addition to straighter and more or less angular lines along the bone, depending on your particular goals for jawline enhancement.

We do naturally lose some bone volume as we age, but for many candidates, tweaking features with this treatment can improve the appearance of the jawline. For example, injecting dermal fillers into the chin for a non-surgical chin augmentation can create the appearance of a sharper jawline for some candidates.

Injectables – Getting Rid Of Jowls Along The Jawline

Both patients were treated only with injectable treatments at our New Jersey offices. The patient on the left is in her 50’s (had mild jowling to begin with) – on the right, her 70’s (had severe jowling to begin with).

This problem is caused by loss of volume in the cheeks, which creates loose skin that droops down at the center bottom of the jawline on both sides, and with time, fat will accumulate in that pocket and weigh down on the skin, making jowls worse. For many, they will also experience a loss of normal volume in the pre-jowl sulcus, which makes an indent in front of the jowls, making them even more pronounced.

Injectable products can fix jowls by:

  • Replacing that lost volume in cheeks, which lifts up the loose skin of jowls. This can be achieved with lifting fillers like Sculptra, Lyft, and Voluma.
  • Lifting and firming up skin, making skin more elastic and youthful. This can be achieved with hyperdilute Sculptra or Radiesse or thread lifts.
  • Dissolving the fat that’s accumulated in the jowl – doing this alone will cause the skin to lift up a little bit. This can be achieved with Kybella and/or syringe liposuction.
  • Filling in pre-jowl sulcus to create smoother effect and make jowls appear smaller in contrast. This can be achieved with Defyne, Juvederm, or other fillers.
  • Replacing lost volume in the chin or augment an underdeveloped chin to pull the jawline forward creating a more streamlined appearance.

Younger patients and/or those with mild jowls can completely eliminate the problem with injections. Those with severe jowls can expect a mild to moderate improvement, but once skin has lost elasticity, they will need additional treatments to improve skin quality and/or surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Non-Surgical Jawline Sculpting with Injections

  • Is there downtime for jawline injections?

    One of the major benefits of injectables compared to other treatments is that there is no downtime. Most injectable treatments can cause some swelling, redness, and potentially bruising, but these are very temporary and should subside within a few hours or days from the injection. You can return to your normal routine immediately after your injection appointment if you choose. However, you will be encouraged to avoid strenuous activity such as exercise for at least 24 hours after receiving injectable treatments.

  • What is the cost of jawline injections?

    The cost of jawline injections depends on the products chosen, the amount of product necessary, and other factors. The average cost for a jawline filler injection is about $1,000-$3,400. The cost of your non-surgical jawline contouring will be explained after a thorough consultation.

  • How long do jawline injection appointments usually take?

    Injectable appointments are completed relatively quickly. The treatment usually takes no more than 45 minutes, and the actual injection portion is generally 15 minutes or less of this, as most of the time is spent planning the treatment prior to injection.

  • Is anesthesia required for jawline injections?

    There is no anesthesia required to receive jawline injections; you will be awake throughout the appointment. Some injectable products include lidocaine within their formula to aid in patient comfort. For others, you may receive a topical numbing cream. It is common to do the injection using a thin, blunt tube called a cannula to make the treatment safe, more comfortable and limit the downtime.

  • How long do jawline fillers last?

    The longevity of any jawline injection result depends on the patient and the product used. However, it’s common for results to last between up to 2 years and possibly longer. Botox, of course, is not a filler, and only lasts 3-4 months.

  • Is jawline filler dangerous?

    Any injections into the jawline have some risks but are generally considered safe. Before your non-surgical jawline sculpting appointment, a physician will carefully review your health history and examine the treatment area to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
