Taking it back to the mid-90’s, and still exists today, medical aestheticians used light-based therapies that claim to tighten skin, such as Thermage and Ultherapy, using a mix of ultrasound and radio frequency (RF) energy. Unfortunately, these procedures can be excruciatingly painful and don’t deliver the “wow factor” results that today’s savvy consumers expect and demand. Fast forward to 2015 and Restylane Lyft (aptly named dermal filler used for lifting the skin) was introduced and turned out to be a perfect match suited for jawline contouring fillers. Additionally, the semi-permanent filler, Radiesse, has emerged as a longer-lasting option for lower face and jaw contouring.
Dermal Filler Options: The Ideal Procedure for Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring
Restylane Lyft is one of the first hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers on the market in which its molecular structure offers an ideal combination of robust density and longevity necessary to reinforce soft tissue in the lower face. Lyft provides excellent jawline contouring fillers and lasts up to 12 months.
The other option, Radiesse, is a semi-permanent filler that consists of tiny microspheres suspended in a gel medium. When injected under the skin the tiny beads stimulate your body to produce collagen at the injection site, resulting in lifting and volume enhancement. Radiesse has been shown to last up to 18 months.

What Can You Expect from Jaw Contouring?
Dermal filler can be injected at the top of the mandible bone (closer to the ear) to give your jawline a sharper and more defined angle, just like Angeline Jolie’s! It can also be placed along the lower jawline and closer to the chin to achieve a reduction in jowls and to streamline the lower face for a more youthful overall appearance. To fine tune the results even further, jawline contouring fillers can be used in the chin to gently extend the facial lines for added balance and facial symmetry.The big advantage of non-surgical jawline contouring using filler is that it can benefit both younger and older patients alike. For the older patients, it’s inevitable that neck sagging may occur with age. This jawline contouring procedure can diminish the sagging and rejuvenate the neck’s appearance resulting in more definition when injected in the appropriate areas.

How Much Jaw Filler is Necessary for My Jawline Transformation?
The amount of jaw filler needed depends on a multitude of factors. The patient’s age, amount of correction required, and desired outcome all play a part. For some people one syringe of Restylane Lyft or Radiesse per side produces a visible improvement. For others, it can take up to six jawline filler syringes per side (yes, per side!) to produce a satisfactory and pleasing outcome. Also, men may require more dermal filler than women.
The good news is that if you’re looking to augment your jawline you don’t have to do it all at once. You can build volume over time in multiple visits or as your budget allows. After a thorough consultation about your personalized beauty objectives, your injector will customize a treatment plan that’s designed to make you look more youthful and attractive.
