A strong, chiseled jawline like your favorite celebrity or model is not born to everyone, and it’s not easily attained with any sort of exercise. Now, you can have that model jawline and chin with the help of dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers are a safe and effective cosmetic treatment that can change the shape and structure of your face using a natural compound found in the human body called hyaluronic acid. From targeting fine lines to restoring volume loss due to age, and now contouring your facial structures, dermal fillers bring many benefits for your skin and aesthetic goals.

I am board-certified family physician Dr. Christine Eros, and at my practice, Eros Beauty and Wellness, I offer a range of different dermal fillers that all serve a specific purpose when it comes to anti-aging benefits and contouring features. I will come along beside you to help you determine the best course of action and products to choose to get the jaw of your dreams.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid into different facial areas. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring acid found in the body, but most commonly in the skin cells, and is responsible for keeping the skin plump and healthy. As a natural part of the aging process, this hyaluronic acid is depleted, leading to a lack of collagen and elastin, which turns into loose skin and lost volume.

By injecting hyaluronic acid back into the skin, you can add volume directly to these areas, changing the shape and structure of the face. This will also help to hydrate skin cells and provide much-needed moisture and nourishment.

But how can this be used to contour the jaw?

How Dermal Fillers Change the Shape of the Jaw

Dermal fillers injected into areas of the jawline itself can be very beneficial for changing the shape of the jaw by increasing volume in specific areas. When injected in minimal amounts, in areas of the jaw where volume and shape are missing, and in line with your natural facial structure, you can experience a dramatic or subtle jawline change. This is because the filler injections will increase volume slightly in key places, particularly where volume has been lost or never existed to begin with. This volume replenishment will move the skin back where it should be and reduce any sagging skin around the very edge of your jawline. As a result, you can have the clear, smooth jawline you’ve been looking for.

What Dermal Fillers Does Dr. Eros Offer?

At Eros Beauty and Wellness, I offer several options when it comes to dermal fillers, but my favorite option for volume loss is the brand Radiesse®.  Radiesse® is comprised of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. When injected into the skin, it provides immediate volume and correction by continuing to work with your body to create more of its own natural collagen. For these reasons, it is especially popular around the chin and jaw.

Jawline Filler FAQs – San Diego, CA

Can dermal fillers lift my jawline?

Facial fillers are a top choice of patients who want to non-surgically reshape their faces while rejuvenating their skin’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid. By carefully injecting a small amount of filler into the chin and jawline, I can restore lost volume and definition in the area. Your result will be a more youthful and well-defined appearance.

How long does filler last in the jawline?

While dermal fillers are not permanent, they can be long-lasting. Your results’ duration depends on factors such as age, lifestyle, genetics, and how fast your body metabolizes the fillers. You can maintain your new look longer by avoiding smoking and excessive sun exposure. These habits accelerate the natural aging process and cause the filler to dissolve faster in your system. Additionally, following my post-treatment instructions can keep you looking your best for as long as possible.

Which filler is best for the jawline?

I offer various fillers that will help create incredible results along your jawline. During your consultation, I’ll recommend a product based on your desired look, your skin’s thickness, and your budget.

Dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® products consist of hyaluronic acid, making them helpful for hydrating and strengthening the skin.

On the other hand, Radiesse® provides more natural-looking results because it increases collagen production to support and volumize your skin.

I will consider all these factors when recommending which filler will work best for your jawline.

Does jaw filler change your smile?

Some swelling around your mouth, chin, and jaw can occur after your dermal filler injections, briefly affecting your smile’s apperance. However, this swelling typically resolves after one week, and your smile should return to normal.

Can fillers lift jowls?

Throughout the aging process, collagen production decreases, causing the skin to sag. As a result, you may have excess skin, or jowls, along the lower third of your face. These may be a typical part of aging, but they don’t have to detract from your quality of life. I can strategically place filler along the jawline and cheeks to give your skin the structure it needs to create a more prominent and symmetrical jawline.

Is filler reversible?

An enzyme called hyaluronidase can quickly dissolve hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers in the rare case you are dissatisfied with your results. However, remember that filler results are temporary to begin with. Your results should wear off naturally within a few months to a year.
