A number of changes begin to happen to our faces as we grow older. In addition to the countless wrinkles that begin to form with folding of skin, we also generally begin to lose facial volume due to bone loss and loss of fat – especially around the eyes, cheeks, and mouth.
Cosmetic dermal fillers have always been a medical approach to correct and reverse these age-related changes.
Referred to as non-surgical cosmetic treatments due to their less invasive approach than traditional facial surgery, they are a relatively safer option and the results are almost instant (1). Dermal fillers have been traditionally known to inject volume in the lips, but they can also be used to target different areas of the face such as the cheeks, nose, and of course – the jawline.
Depending on the type of brand used, fillers can last up to 2 years (2). Their changes can also be reversed by using an enzyme to dissolve the fillers, so their effects aren’t permanent if you don’t like them.
But having said that, there are a few side-effects and helpful tips to know before getting the jawline procedure done, so make sure you read that section below to make sure you understand everything.
What do jawline fillers do?
Having a stronger jawline has always been culturally associated with being more “powerful” and attractive (3). Many current makeup trends focus on contouring the cheekbones as well as the jaw.
Jawline fillers are usually injected all along the jawline to give of the illusion of a more prominent jaw, a strong chin, and a clear separation between the face and the neck.
Typically, the stronger jawline is mostly defined by a very prominent angle of the mandible, which is the angle where the jaw ends and begins to rise.
In addition to giving you a more prominent jawline, jaw fillers also make the skin tighter around the neck, reducing any appearance of a “double-chin“.
When getting jawline fillers, your doctor may inject fillers anywhere along your jawline – starting from the chin area and ending all the way to the back where your jaw begins to rise, (where most of the fillers will be injected for a stronger angle).
Who should get jawline fillers?
You should get jaw fillers if you’re complaining of a:
- “Weak” and almost non-visible jawline
- “Weak” and rounded chin
- A double chin, or too much sub-mental fat
- Loose and saggy neck skin
- If you want a more prominent and defined jawline
Side effects of jaw fillers
Though getting dermal fillers may seem like a routine treatment to get, there are some complications that could happen as a result of wrong injection techniques (4), so make sure that you are getting your injections at a trusted practitioner.
Bruising and swelling
These are the most common symptoms associated with getting any type of fillers, and should be expected. It’s recommended that you don’t exercise during and the day after getting your filler treatment, this is to reduce any bruising.
Because a needle is penetrating skin, there is a small chance of infection. It’s important not to wear any makeup before or after your jawline fillers session, as it could increase the chances of an infection.
Jaw fillers tips and advice
- Some fillers known as temporary fillers, only last around 6-8 months, and then are naturally dissolved by the body. So if you don’t like the results, they aren’t permanent.
- If you are completely unsatisfied with the results immediately after you have had fillers, then the fillers can be dissolved almost immediately by a special enzyme. Multiple sessions may be required but eventually the fillers will be completely removed and your appearance will return to how you were.
- If you’re still experiencing bruising and swelling a week after your jawline filler session, make sure to notify your doctor or injector.
- If you’re pregnant, are on aspirin, or any other blood thinner medication, tell your doctor or practitioner before getting the injections.
Jawline filler cost
Getting jaw fillers must be a confident choice because the area to be injected is much larger than the other treatments (such as lips, nose, or frown-lines).
Jawline fillers will cost anywhere between $500 – $1000, and some cosmetic doctors will even charge upwards of $2000. These numbers greatly depend on your practitioner and the amount of filler that you’ll need.
How much filler do I need?
Injecting fillers in the jaw may require a lesser amount than getting your lips done, but it depends on what goal you’re trying to achieve and how prominent you want the transformation to be.
It depends too much on your current situation and your goals to put an exact number, but to get jaw fillers you may require around 1-3ml of filler material.
