What Are Jawline Fillers?

Jawline fillers are dermal fillers that are used to contour the jawline. The filler we use is Juvéderm. This injectable gel contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already in your body. Juvéderm is sterile and safe. And because your body tends to make less hyaluronic acid as you get older, these injections can replace lost volume. Adding Juvéderm smooths wrinkles and gives your jawline more fullness where you need it to create a well-defined jawline. Juvéderm fillers also contain lidocaine, which helps numb the area and ease the pain.

Goals and Benefits of Jawline Fillers

Why should you have dermal filler injections for your jawline? To answer that question, you need to look at your aesthetic goals and the benefits you hope to get from these injectable fillers. Here are some examples of goals that you might fulfill with this procedure.

  • Make a more defined separation between your neck and jawline.
  • Plump up your jawline.
  • Create a jawline with a sharper contour.
  • Improve the symmetry between your left and right jawline.
  • Look significantly more youthful.
  • Reduce facial sagging and wrinkles.
  • Make your jawline smoother.

Dermal fillers can do all these things, but it’s important to consider the benefits of making this particular choice. Juvéderm has the following benefits.

  • A naturally occurring substance
  • Sterile and safe
  • Increased collagen production
  • Hydrated skin
  • Quick procedure and fast recovery
  • Minimal side effects
  • Fast results
  • Few health risks for most people

What to Expect with Jawline Fillers Injections

If you have never had jawline fillers before, and especially if you have not had any cosmetic procedure, you may wonder what it’s like. Here is a brief guide to get you started.


When you come in for an appointment at Elevate, we start by learning your medical history and determining if jawline fillers are right for you. During the consultation, our doctor assesses the condition of your skin and jawline.

We listen to your goals and discuss how Juvéderm can meet them. We also educate you on the fillers we use, how the procedure will go, and what you need to do for aftercare. There are several types of hyaluronic fillers. If you are a good candidate for jawline fillers, we set a date for your procedure.


The procedure itself is relatively quick, painless, and easy. We start by applying a numbing cream. After 15 to 30 minutes, we begin the injections of your jawline filler. You may feel some minor discomfort or a pinch, but soon you will be ready to go home and follow your aftercare routine.

Side Effects

You might experience some mild side effects after we treat you with jawline fillers. We recommend resting and limiting exercise for the first 24 hours after your injections. You can take acetaminophen or use a topical anesthetic to reduce pain. If you have any bruising or swelling, a cold compress will help. If any of the side effects seem unusual or severe or don’t go away within a few days, contact your provider.


You will see a more defined jawline immediately. These results of having hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm typically last from six months to a year. Your body absorbs the HA over time, so you will need to continue getting periodical treatments if you like the new look of your jawline and want to keep it that way. If for some reason, you are not satisfied with the results, jawline fillers can be reversed easily.

Are You a Good Candidate for Jawline Fillers?

During your consultation, your provider will ask you several questions about your health, medical conditions, and medical history. Only a medical professional can tell you whether you are a good candidate for jawline fillers. The main considerations are:

  • Will jawline fillers achieve the look you want?
  • Do you have medical conditions that would prevent you from getting Juvéderm?

Some people should not get dermal fillers due to medical problems like cold sores, lupus, scleroderma, infections, or uncontrolled diabetes. At Elevate, your team understands these issues and can advise you on whether it is safe to have jawline fillers.

If dermal fillers are right for you, the next step is choosing the type of jawline filler that will help you get the desired results.

Jawline Fillers Vs. Jaw Surgery

Sometimes cosmetic surgeons recommend a jaw implant rather than jawline fillers. However, getting a jaw implant is a surgical procedure, while jawline fillers are much less invasive. In addition, jaw implants are permanent. Jawline fillers can be reversed if you don’t like the results.

Because one treatment with jawline fillers is much less expensive than implants, you may decide to try the jawline fillers first, see how you like the results, and then decide whether to have an implant or continue with the fillers. Either way, we are here to advise you and help you achieve the look you want.

Choosing a Medical Aesthetician for Jawline Fillers
