Ready to uncover the secret to achieving a chiseled, well-defined jawline? Featuring industry favorites like Juvederm Volux, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Phillip Chang and his expert team are here to inform you about the latest advancements, techniques, and expert insights for enhancing your chin and jawline. Join us as we help you discover the transformative power of jaw fillers and unlock the key to a more confident, youthful appearance!

What Is a Jaw Filler?

A jaw filler is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that harnesses the power of injectable dermal fillers to enhance, reshape, and add definition to the jawline. The procedure aims to create a more balanced, contoured, and aesthetically pleasing facial appearance. In addition, jaw fillers can address various aesthetic concerns, such as a weak or undefined jawline, asymmetry, or age-related sagging and volume loss.

Some popular dermal filler brands used for jawline enhancement include Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse. The choice of filler and the amount needed will depend on your specific goals, which you will discuss with Dr. Chang during your complimentary consultation!

How Do Jaw Fillers Work?

Jaw fillers work by injecting a gel-like substance, usually composed of hyaluronic acid, into the target areas around the jawline to add volume, improve contour, and enhance the overall appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps maintain hydration and provide structure to the skin.

A typical jaw filler procedure follows a set of clearly defined steps:

  1. Consultation: You’ll have a pre-procedural consultation with Dr. Chang and his team to discuss your goals, assess your facial structure, and determine the appropriate type and amount of filler needed.
  2. Preparation: The treatment area is cleansed, and a topical anesthetic or numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  3. Injection: Dr. Chang will use a fine needle to carefully inject the dermal filler into the target areas around the jawline. He will also massage the area to ensure even distribution and shape the filler as desired.
  4. Post-procedural care: You may experience swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites after the treatment. Fortunately, these side effects are mild and resolve within a few days. Dr. Chang will provide you with aftercare instructions to help minimize any discomfort and ensure the best possible results.

The results of jaw fillers are usually visible immediately after treatment and can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors. Over time, the body naturally metabolizes the hyaluronic acid, and the effects gradually diminish. To maintain the desired appearance, you will need follow-up treatments or touch-ups as recommended by Dr. Chang.

Can Jaw Fillers Work for Double Chins?

Jaw fillers can improve a double chin by enhancing the contour and definition of the jawline, making the double chin appear less pronounced. However, they are not the most effective treatment for addressing the underlying cause of a double chin, which is typically excess fat or loose skin.

A treatment like Kybella (with deoxycholic acid) injections or CoolSculpting (through cryolipolysis) may be more suitable for excess fat. These treatments work by breaking down and eliminating fat cells in the targeted area, reducing the appearance of a double chin.

If loose skin is the primary concern, treatments like radiofrequency or ultrasound skin tightening, or even a surgical procedure like a neck lift, may provide the desired results.

It’s essential to consult with Dr. Chang to assess your individual needs and determine the most appropriate treatment for your double chin. For some patients, a combination of treatments, such as jaw fillers and fat reduction procedures, are necessary for a complete treatment.

What Is Juvederm Volux?

Juvederm Volux is a dermal filler product from the Juvederm family — a line of hyaluronic acid-based fillers manufactured by Allergan. Juvederm fillers are commonly used to achieve facial rejuvenation by addressing various signs of aging.

The Volux filler is specifically designed for use in the chin and jawline area, providing more definition and volume. Its unique formulation is more cohesive and durable than other Juvederm products, making it suitable for sculpting and contouring these facial areas. In addition, the hyaluronic acid in Volux attracts and retains moisture, providing a natural-looking result that can last a couple of years, depending on your specific circumstances and the treatment area.

How Long Does Juvederm Volux Last?

Juvederm Volux is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler specifically designed for use in the chin and jawline area. Its unique formulation provides more definition and volume in these areas, with results that can last up to 18-24 months! The longevity of the results may also be influenced by factors such as the patient’s age, skin type, lifestyle, and the injector’s skill.

As the body naturally metabolizes the hyaluronic acid, the effects of Juvederm Volux will gradually diminish. Therefore, touch-up treatments are required to maintain your desired look. It’s essential to consult with Dr. Chang to ensure the best possible results and discuss the appropriate maintenance schedule based on your specific goals.
