Do Neurotoxins and Fillers Work in the Jawline?

Posted June 22, 2021 in Injectable Fillers

2 Minute Read: 

A chiseled and defined jawline is one of the key elements of a beautifully sculpted face. It evokes a look of confidence and strength, qualities that both men and women desire.

Unfortunately, as we age, the skin begins to sag, and the jaw muscles start to shrink, causing our once youthful face to change. 

The jawline can be a source of insecurity for men and women and, for this reason, many individuals are looking for solutions to enhance this noticeable facial feature.

How Can I Get Stronger Jawline Definition?

With carefully placed injections of neuromodulators (muscle relaxants) or fillers, patients can relax jaw muscles and add shape to their chins and jawlines.

Dermal Fillers for Jawline Enhancement

Injecting dermal fillers to the jawline will enhance your bony angle and mandible. By doing this, you get to create more distinction between your neck and face, enhancing your facial structure.

A weak chin and jawline can contribute to a “baby face” or immature look, especially in men. For those whose chin lacks projection or whose jawline is not defined, getting a jawline filler helps correct volume deficits, asymmetry, and irregular contours. The result is beautiful, smooth, and defined jawline angles that enhance the entire face.

There are a variety of injectable dermal fillers that are used in jawline contouring. The most popular and effective choices include JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®. 

During your consultation, a highly trained and qualified professional will assess your case, discuss your goals, and recommend the best filler(s) to fit your needs.

Neuromodulators for Jawline Enhancement

Neuromodulators like BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® are also useful tools in jawline contouring. These popular wrinkle relaxers work best when placed in the masseter muscles of the face for a slimmer lower facial appearance. 

For patients suffering from jaw-related issues, such as teeth grinding, jaw pain, or TMJ, the neuromodulators may bring relief by relaxing specific muscles in the area. 

KYBELLA® for Jawline Enhancement

Additionally, a complementary treatment like KYBELLA® can eliminate fat below the chin for those with double chins, further enhancing the jawline contour.

Getting a filler or neuromodulator injection is a non-invasive procedure that involves little-to-no downtime. 

Does Facial Symmetry Play a Role in a More Attractive Face?

Previous research studies show that your jawline strength has a lot to do with how attractive you appear to others. And this just does not apply to men. 

A prominent jawline in women helps draw out other facial features, such as the cheekbones, lips, eyes, and even eyebrows. Think of women in Hollywood with strong jawlines like Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez, and Halle Berry.
