Jawline fillers provide a non-surgical jaw enhancement. There are two main treatment approaches with jawline fillers. Firstly in younger people seeking to increase jaw definition. Secondly, for less-young people trying to minimise jowls and saggy skin.
Jawline Fillers in Young People.
A very defined jawline is glamorising for women or provides masculine strength in men. A filler that provides structure is, however, essential. Some young people have asymmetry or lack definition or merely want jawline fillers to enhance their natural features. Combining jawline fillers and chin fillers or cheek fillers are common.
Jawline Fillers for Less Young People.
Once people get to a certain age, jowls begin to develop. Weight loss worsens the sagging. There are treatments, including thread lifting and skin tightening, that can create a jowl lift. However, it is common to use jawline fillers combined with other measures for a non-surgical jowl lift. Smoothing the contours with jawline fillers creates a more youthful appearance.
Who is suitable for a Jaw Enhancement?
Men and women over the age of 18 can elect to have a jaw enhancement. The most common reasons in less young people to help disguise jowls. However, the number of young people seeking jawline fillers is increasing — notably, men wanting a more chiselled jaw or women wanting more definition to their jaw.
The amount of filler required for jaw enhancement is considerable more than used when disguising jowls. The best thing is to book a free assessment with our doctors at the outset. They will assess you and be able to give an accurate quote to achieve your aesthetic goals. Our doctors may recommend adjunctive treatments such as chin filler, anti-wrinkle injections or lower face thread lift.

Possible side effects of Jawline Fillers
As with all cosmetic injectable treatment, the common side effects include bruising, swelling and redness. Bruising tends to settle over 10 days to 2 weeks. In comparison, the swelling and redness subside within 1-2 days. If you have e tendency to swelling with treatments, our doctors may recommend you take an anti-histamine. Our Doctors will go over the rarer and potentially more serious complications such as a risk of infection or formation of lumps at the initial consultation.
Depending on the filler used, the jaw enhancement should last between 6 and 18 months. The longer-lasting jawline fillers cost more. However, many people prefer longevity. You can schedule a top-up treatment for 12months, at which time you may require less jawline filler.
