The Jaw Fillers Phenomenon: Why is Everyone Getting Them?

When it comes to dermal fillers, cheeks and lips have been getting the bulk of the attention for years. Sculpted, defined cheeks and full, pouty lips are generally considered to be highly attractive, but—as many people seem to have discovered recently—the jawline is also very important for giving structure to the face. A significant number of people wish they had a more chiselled-looking lower face, but naturally have a more recessed chin or a rounded face shape due to genetics. This reality can make them self-conscious about their profile.

Besides improving pronounced facial wrinkles from collagen depletion, hyaluronic acid gel fillers are also used for facial contouring and are a quick, non-surgical way to improve the appearance of the bone structure around the jaw. Throughout 2020, jaw sculpting with Juvederm® and other types of fillers became a visible trend in the beauty industry. Here are some of the benefits of choosing jawline enhancement with Juvederm® at New Jersey’s South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center:

  • Improve the Look of Jowls and a Double Chin

Although fillers won’t be able to get rid of sagging skin or excess fat around the chin area—both of which contribute to the look of jowls—giving yourself a stronger jawline can cause these signs of aging to appear less prominent. Juvederm® gives the skin a slight lift and smooths the surface, improving overall definition.

  • Better Facial Harmony and Balance

Strengthening the chin and jaw or making them more symmetrical can make your overall face shape more balanced. The treatment is fully customized for individual patients, so you can choose filler to make your face seem more mature, or to create a more traditionally masculine or feminine jawline.

  • Convenience

Unlike surgical procedures—which are often lengthy, have extended recovery times, and involve incisions—fillers are minimally invasive and quick to administer. The procedure is done within a few minutes, you’ll notice changes right away, and any downtime or side effects are minimal. The outcome will look more subtle and natural than surgery, so the results won’t be too exaggerated—and you can even have hyaluronic acid fillers reversed if you don’t like the way they look.
