Jawline contouring in St. Paul reshapes the chin area to create a more refined, youthful jawline. At our practice, non-surgical jawline contouring with injectables is a frequently performed procedure. Our patients love how quickly they see results with this minimally invasive facial enhancement technique.
Why Undergo Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring?
A well-defined jawline and a strong chin can provide an aesthetic foundation for the face. However, genetics and age-related changes to the jawline can disrupt facial harmony. While surgical jawline contouring options do exist, not every patient is a good candidate for surgery or is comfortable with having an invasive procedure.
Fortunately, non-surgical jawline contouring with injectables can resolve many patient concerns without the need for surgery. Bringing the jawline into balance with your facial features can transform your look by addressing:
- An underprojected chin
- A square or overly angular jaw
What Is Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring?
Non-surgical jawline contouring involves the injection of a dermal filler or neuromodulator to reshape the lower face. Dermal fillers are used to increase volume, while a neuromodulator can reduce an overly prominent jawline.
By strategically adding or decreasing volume in the lower face, a youthful, slim facial profile can be achieved. Our doctors may recommend one or both types of injectables to deliver your desired outcome.
Jawline Contouring with Juvederm
Juvederm is a dermal filler with a hyaluronic acid (HA) base. HA fillers are effective for addressing many signs of aging. Juvederm can be injected by our experienced doctors to augment the chin and fill in jawline hollowness as needed to refresh and harmonize your facial features.
Jawline Contouring with Botox
Not all jawline concerns require augmentation to improve contours. An oversized or too-square jaw will necessitate a reduction in size to refine the jawline.
Many of our patients expect that surgery will be needed to accomplish their desired look. However, the injectable neuromodulator Botox can be highly effective in addressing the main cause of an overly pronounced jaw.
An overstimulated masseter muscle is often the reason a patient develops a disproportionately large or angular jaw. The masseter muscle powers many jaw movements, including chewing.
Like any muscle, it can increase in size with repetitive motions. Many patients find that change undesirable in the context of their unique facial structure, and we often recommend Botox to restore a slimmer and more oval-shaped jawline.
As a neuromodulator, Botox can block nerve signals to the masseter muscle. With less stimulation, muscle mass decreases, bringing the jawline into better balance with the rest of the face.
The Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring Procedure
Non-surgical jawline contouring is minimally invasive and takes little time. A topical numbing cream is first applied to the treatment area. Our doctor will then reshape the chin and jaw with precise injections to achieve natural-looking results.
Cost of Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring
The price of jawline contouring varies based on the type of injection used and how many injections are needed. We will always advise you of treatment costs prior to any scheduled procedure.
