The beauty of dermal fillers is that they have the ability to improve many of the problem areas for our clients. Although the popular use for them is to plump lips, smooth out wrinkles, and fill in cheeks, there are other uses that many people are now beginning to learn about.
Jawline contouring has become a popular use for dermal fillers. Our clients are able to shape their jawline to their desired look, whether it be to smooth away wrinkles and folds or to create a softer or more defined jawline. Let’s take a look at some of the possibilities.

What Causes A Square Jawline?
Many of our clients are looking for a softer jawline than what they naturally have. They may have even looked into surgeries or other procedures to fix it.
The square jawline is caused by having large masseter muscles in your jaw. The masseter muscles are the muscles that help you open and close your mouth for chewing food.
Just like any other body part or organ, some individuals are born with bigger masseter muscles than others creating a wider and more defined jawline.

One of the consistent trouble areas we hear about from clients is about their jawline sagging.
This is a telltale sign of age. As we get older, the jawline becomes less defined and our skin becomes looser, causing it to sag and take away from the definition.
Jawline contouring can help re-define the jaw area and get rid of the sagging.
A receding chin is another concern that clients often express to us.
The receding chin is most commonly caused simply by genetics. Some people are born with their chin sloping backward—an aesthetic that they want to change.
Dermal fillers can help to redefine the chin to minimize the inward slope.
Depending on if you are a male or female, you will probably have different goals when considering jawline contouring.
Most men who have a weak jawline typically want to have a more structured aesthetic look.
Most women are looking to soften their jawline, but still want to have some definition to create the optimal aesthetic.
What Is The Procedure Like?
Just as with any other dermal filler treatment, jawline contouring can be done fairly quickly in about 15-30 minutes, depending on what your preferred aesthetic is.
Patients should take the same type of precautions as they would for any other dermal filler treatment. This means avoiding blood thinners line Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen, as well as Vitamin E.
Is Jawline Contouring With Dermal Fillers Right For Me?
Just as with any other surgical or non-surgical procedure, everyone is different. Speaking with a doctor or esthetician will help give you a better understanding of your options.
Our specialists at Pure Touch will assess your chin and your personal goals in order to make recommendations that will help give you the best aesthetic that you are looking for. Contact us if you’re interested or have more questions!
