Chin and Jawline Contouring in Boston

Dermal fillers

Normally, we don't think of the chin and jawline as prominent facial features. However, these facial features are important in framing your face. Filler contouring can change the shape of your face by hollowing out or adding volume without the need for invasive plastic surgery.

With dermal fillers, you can add volume to your cheeks while simultaneously giving them a more chiseled appearance. The overall effect is subtle but adds structure and definition to your features.

Our licensed aestheticians at Skin Deep Med Spa in Boston specialize in using dermal fillers for chin and jawline contouring.

Get Chiseled Jawline and Defined Chin With Derma Fillers

The chin and jawline are crucial aspects of facial aesthetics, as they can make or break a person's face. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, have revolutionized facial contouring with a simple injection that can give a new definition and combat the aging process in the treatment area.

Juvederm is an injectable filler containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps with hydration. When injected into the soft tissues of the face, the dermal filler adds volume to the skin and acts as a supporting structure for it, lifting sagging tissue.

This results in younger-looking skin, with fewer visible wrinkles and folds. In particular, Juvederm is most effective in improving the appearance of:

  • Drooping cheeks
  • Under-eye bags (tear troughs)
  • Nasolabial folds (where the nose meets the mouth)
  • Marionette lines (the vertical lines on either side of the mouth)
  • Jowls (the loose skin around the jawline)
  • Double chin
  • Acne scars
  • Facial lines and wrinkles
  • Lost facial volume

Finding a licensed esthetician is essential when considering this option. At Skin Deep Med Spa, we can help you achieve facial rejuvenation with our latest innovative dermal filler treatments.

What To Expect During the Procedure

Once you have decided that you want to have a chin and jawline contour, you will need to schedule your consultation with our staff at Skin Deep Med Spa.

During this meeting, we will discuss the goals of your personalized treatment plan and how you want to achieve them. Our aesthetician will give you a tour of the facility and explain how this cosmetic surgery works.

Step 1: Mark Desired Areas

The first step in the chin and jawline contouring procedure is to mark the desired areas. The patient will sit upright in a dental chair, with their head slightly tilted back for better access to the treatment area.

Step 2: Apply Anesthesia

Next, we numb the skin using local anesthesia to reduce discomfort during treatment. Using topical anesthetic gel will allow us to treat more sensitive areas without causing any discomfort or pain during treatment.

Step 3: Injection

The next step involves injecting a small amount of dermal filler into your chin and jawline area. This will relax your muscles so that they do not interfere with the overall shape of your face. The aesthetician will then massage the injected area to ensure absorption of filler injections into your skin tissue.

Aftercare of Chin and Jawline Contouring: How to Prolong the Effects

It’s imperative to take care of your skin after any cosmetic procedure to get the desired results and avoid complications. The following tips can help you improve facial harmony and natural-looking results after your dermal filler session.


  • During the first week, you may experience some bruising and swelling. To prevent excess bleeding, avoid alcohol, aspirin, and anti-inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen for at least one week after your procedure.
  • Stay hydrated during recovery. Drink plenty of water to help flush out any excess blood and toxins from your body.
  • Keep all incisions clean by washing them with warm water twice a day until they have healed completely (usually 7-10 days). Pat dry gently with a clean towel after each wash.
  • Use an antibiotic ointment if your doctor recommends it.


  • Sun exposure. UV rays can cause pigmentation, swelling, and slight bruising, which can alter the natural contours of your face.
  • Saunas, hot tubs, and steam rooms for two weeks after your treatment. Heat exposure can increase blood flow in the treated area and accelerate healing time.
  • Strenuous activities during recovery. Strenuous exercise may result in increased bleeding due to increased blood flow in the treated area.
  • Washing your face with soap or exfoliating the area for a week before resuming your normal routine.
  • Touching or rubbing any open wounds. This could introduce germs into the incision site, which could cause infection.

Signs That You Need Jawline and Chin Contouring

The chin and jawline area are essential in framing the structures of your face. For men, a strong jawline makes them appear more masculine and dominant. For women, a strong jawline can give a more angular face shape and make them appear more youthful and feminine.

If you’re looking for signs that you need jawline and chin contouring, here are some things to look out for:

  • You have a weak or nonexistent jawline or chin. This can happen for various reasons, such as genetics, aging, or excessive weight loss.
  • Your facial hair covers your chin and jawline area too much. Facial hair is typically thicker in other areas of the body and can cover up a weak or nonexistent jawline or chin area.
  • You have a double chin and don't like the way it looks.
  • Your chin droops down, creating what doctors call turkey neck syndrome or marionette lines around your mouth and neck.
  • You want to change your profile from square to oval or vice versa. This is usually done in conjunction with liposuction under the chin, as well as liposuction on the neck.
  • The upper part of your face is wider than the lower part. This can make your jawline look flatter and less defined than it actually is.

Frequently Asked Questions

The popularity of chin and jawline contouring treatments has grown considerably over the past few years. With clinics opening up across the globe, many people are looking to have this procedure done to achieve a perfect jawline.

Let's shed light on some of the frequently asked questions about chin and jawline contouring to help you make an informed decision.

Can jawline fillers be done with other procedures?

Combining jawline contouring is a great way to change your overall facial contours and add volume to your face. These procedures can be done with other facial procedures such as liposuction, face lifts, and various combinations. We are happy to discuss this with you at your initial consultation.

How long do jawline and chin fillers last?

These injectable fillers last for 6 to 12 months, depending on a few factors. If your correction looks ideal at first, it’s probably only a matter of time before it needs another injection. That said, the longevity of treatment depends on your lifestyle and how you treat yourself on a day-to-day basis.

How much are fillers for the chin and jawline?

Chin, jawline, and face contouring surgery costs vary from surgeon to surgeon. The appropriate cost of this procedure is determined by the individual needs and desired results of the patient, but on average is $700 to $1000.

Does jaw filler hurt?

Jawline or chin filler procedures are quick with minimal downtime. Most patients can return to normal activities immediately after treatment. However, the injection sites may feel sore for a day or two.
