Yes - Fillers can definitely be used to enhance the jaw line!

Jaw lines can certainly be enhanced and contoured with fillers. The firmer fillers, such as Radiesse and Sculptra, typically provide a more efficient enhancement than other types of fillers. The bigger concern when using fillers to enhance the jawline is whether or not the treatment suits the rest of your facial structure.The goal should always be to achieve an optimal cheek-to-jaw line ratio.

 The products that are injected are only the ingredients of the treatment. In addition to using the right ingredients, the best results will come from an experienced, dedicated injector with a strong, aesthetic sensibility. If a woman has a narrow cheek bone area with a wide jaw line, there’s a risk that jaw line fillers may actually make the face appear more masculine. However, if the cheekbone area is relatively prominent,  jaw line fillers may actually enhance the feminine beauty. Remember, the aesthetic expertise  of the injector and the areas treated are just as important as the type of filler chosen.

Thank you for your question,

Yes, injectable fillers can be used to better define your jawline. There are an array of fillers that are used for this purpose, including Juvederm Voluma, Sculptra, Restylane Lyft, etc. A consultation with an experienced provider can help to determine your individual treatment plan.

Improved contour of jawline with fillers

Placing fillers along the jawline will improve the contour of your jawline and provide a more youthful appearance. There are many choices when it comes to fillers. I have used Radiesse, Voluma, Sculptra and several others. Based on your photo, it may take several syringes on each side. Find a surgeon that you like and discuss treatment options with them. Good luck

You can use injectables alone to improve definition of the jawline. But, a combination of treatments including Ultherapy, Thermi, Fillers and Sculptra will work better to give optimal jawline definition. Make sure you see an experienced provider for an in-person consultation and evaluation to determine which treatment options are best for you. Hope this helps answer your question.

Fillers can be used to enhance the jawline, while Botox and radiofrequency can be used to slim and shape. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer

Amandiney- I hope this finds you well. Yes, you can utilize Juvederm or a filler along your jawline to define and create a jawline that you might be missing now.  You should visit a local plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon who is skilled and qualified to inject the proper areas.

Improving jawline definition with fillers

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thanks for sharing your question and photo. Yes, injectable treatments such as dermal fillers can be used to improve jawline definition. I prefer using one of the thicker hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane Lyft or non HA fillers such as Radiesse (+) and Sculptra. 

Defined jawline with Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane Lyft or Restylane Defyne

Fillers are commonly used to enhance the jawline and chin. My preference is to use those that consist of hyaluronic acid and to use the more “robust” in that category in a deeper plane of injection (Juvederm Voluma, Restylane Lyft or Restylane Defyne).

Jawline improvement with filler

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

You can improve a jawline with filler, especially if the issue is caused by volume loss (I'm not sure from your photo if that is the case for you). The injectable I prefer here is Radiesse, because it is very thick and supportive, and acts much like bone when placed along the jaw. I use cannulas with Radiesse to minimize risks, bruising and pain. You could also use Restylane Lyft, or Voluma here.

Yes, You Can!

Thanks for the question and for the corresponding photos. Yes, fillers can be used to build up the jaw line. You can use Kybella to melt the fat under the chin and Botox to decrease the masseter muscles. It is possible to change the shape of the jaw line. For more information please visit our webpage.
