How Dermal Fillers Change Your Jawline: Before and After?


Using dermal fillers is a quick and effective treatment to restore natural contours. So how do dermal fillers change the jawline? Read on to learn more.

Dermal Fillers
The chin is an underrated yet integral part of the overall shape of the face. However, as we age, the skin on our chin begins to sag and wrinkle. Although there are many ways to improve it, using dermal fillers is a quick and effective treatment to restore your natural contours.

So what are the benefits of using dermal fillers to sculpt your jawline and chin? Chin fillers are injected into the body to naturally increase collagen production in the skin of the injected area: providing ample volume, slimming the chin, and adding shape to a weak jawline.

How Dermal Fillers Change the Shape of Your Chin

Just like other skin on the face, as the body ages, the jawline and chin may begin to show signs of sagging and wrinkles. This is caused by the breakdown of collagen in the skin. The affected area will begin to lose volume and elasticity. On the lower face where the jawline and chin are located, this can mean poor surface definition or definition of the jawline and asymmetry in facial volume.

With injections of dermal fillers, the jawline and chin can be reshaped like plastic surgery. Most dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the skin that moisturizes the skin and creates elasticity and volume. Once injected into the body, the skin breaks it down and absorbs the hyaluronic acid in the filler.

Added hyaluronic acid helps moisturize skin and create volume and elasticity. When injected into specific areas of the jawline and chin, it can help restructure and even improve the natural shape of the lower face. By adding a biodegradable gel to dermal fillers to control metabolic rate, the effects of dermal fillers last for nearly a year and can be extended with maintenance treatments.

On the one hand, chin fillers use tiny amounts of dermal filler to subtly add volume and definition to a sagging jawline. The organic and subtle improvements of dermal fillers create a smooth and defined jawline compared to other jawline enhancement treatments.

On the other hand, chin fillers can also be used to further improve the shape of the chin. The lifting effects of chin dermal fillers can greatly improve the contour of your jaw. It can even target specific areas of chin sagging or jowls and other fat pads in the jaw.

Amount of Filler to Lift the Jawline

Because different face shapes have specific problem areas for effective jawline enhancement, there is no specific prescribed amount of therapeutic filler. While 1 ml of dermal filler may not seem like much, it is the right amount for subtle but noticeable improvements to your face. However, given the size of the jawline and the area of facial skin that makes up the jawline, the amount of filler may require approximately 1 to 3 syringes to fully lift it.

Your dermatologist will assess the appropriate amount of dermis needed for your jawline during your initial interview. Typically, the amount of filler required depends on the following factors:

- Your expectations and needs,

- Your specific facial structure,

- Number of wrinkles (such as fine lines) on the chin or chin,

- Amount of loss of volume or elasticity.

To enhance the jawline, a combination of dermal fillers can be used, specifically jawline fillers and chin fillers, which can be used to strengthen and moisturize the lower face after its natural volume has been lost. Different types of dermal fillers are used because each filler is designed to be thicker or thinner depending on the site of injection. For example, lip fillers are thin and can provide just the right amount of fullness in a relatively small area of the lip.

Before: Filler Injections in Targeted Areas of the Jawline

The main treatment areas for chin contour enhancement with dermal fillers are the cheeks, and chin, especially the premandibular area and chin contour. These areas will be injected with just the right amount of filler to lift them and accentuate the jawline. Other targeted areas, such as the lips and smile line, can be completed with additional treatments for an overall improvement of your lower face.

As with the jawline, any signs of sagging, loss of volume, and wrinkles in the aforementioned area will be injected with a small amount of dermal filler to fully define it. If the face is more saggy or there is significant volume loss, more injections may be given on one side to make the jawline symmetrical. To avoid any overfilling, get dermal filler injections from a professional dermatologist and injector.

After: What to Expect from Chin Filler Treatment

After treatment is complete, the added dermal fillers may have restored some volume near and within the jawline, lower cheeks, and chin. The condition should still improve after two weeks when any expected side effects have passed.

The first thing you may notice is that once the skin absorbs some of the hyaluronic acid, there is an increase in volume in the injected area. Wrinkles and sagging are treated, leaving the skin around the chin smooth and supple.

As volume is added to the cheeks and chin, the curve of the jawline will definitely be seen. Whether it is completely sculpted or has the side effect of clearing away wrinkles and sagging elsewhere in the lower face, the face will appear pointed and therefore more youthful, not rounder.

A third unexpected benefit is that the neck appears to be slimmer or lifted due to the increased definition of the jawline. Because the skin near the jawline is able to smooth out instead of sagging from the sides, the neck is easier to see because it is more aligned with the lower face.

While these benefits are common to every patient, the final look is tailored to their expectations. Not every jawline treatment is done to sharpen its contours, it can be used to highlight other areas of the lower face or clear up any nearby sagging that is blocking it. Talk to your dermatologist about the appearance you want to achieve with dermal filler treatment.

Post-Operative Care Steps to Maintain Jawline Lift

The effects of dermal fillers are at their peak two weeks after injection. While it lasts an average of one year, there are several steps you can take to extend its duration while providing effective skin care.

1. Get Enough Water and Nutrients

It's easy to forget that the skin is the largest organ in the body. That's why it needs adequate nutrition to stay beautiful. Water moisturizes the skin, keeping it soft and elastic, while a balanced diet can reduce acne breakouts, skin infections, and possible inflammation.

2. Protect Your Face from Sun Damage

Prolonged exposure to the sun's UV rays can damage the collagen in your skin and inject dermal fillers. It also accelerates the effects of skin aging, such as wrinkles and the risk of skin cancer. Always use a 35+ SPF sunscreen in your skincare routine or before going out.

3. Avoid Drinking Alcohol and Smoking

These substances can have harmful effects on the skin and should be avoided within two weeks before and after dermal filler treatment. Alcohol dehydrates the skin while thinning blood vessels, increasing the likelihood and duration of side effects such as bruising and redness. Smoking, meanwhile, can have a similar effect, exposing your chin to the heat of a cigarette. Staying away from these substances can have a significant impact on your skin.
