How To Get a More Defined Jawline: 7 Options You Should Consider

Woman with a chiseled jawline (model) looks at the camera with a hand rested under her chin.

A defined jawline gives you a more youthful and sculpted appearance, which is why it is considered such a highly desirable attribute by men and women alike. But loose skin or excess fat under the chin can leave you with saggy jowls instead of the ultimate jawline. When this occurs, it’s time to consider your jawline treatment options.

Let’s explore how to get a more defined jawline by reviewing the many surgical and nonsurgical treatments available today, how they compare, and which is right for you.

Jawline Definition Surgical vs. Nonsurgical Options

The aging process is a major culprit in causing men and women to gradually lose their lower face and jaw definition. Patients with significant signs of aging can often benefit from a surgical procedure such as a facelift or neck lift. However, this type of surgery is highly invasive and requires a long recovery window.

Patients who prefer a less invasive path to getting a defined jawline can achieve great results with facial contouring, skin tightening, and injectables targeting the chin and neck. Options for sculpting and volumizing the jawline include:

  • Smartlipo®
  • CoolSculpting® Elite
  • PrecisionTX®
  • Profound® Microneedling
  • Dermal Fillers

Jawline Sculpting With Fat Removal Treatments

Patients who suffer from a double chin, despite being healthy and fit, can benefit from a minimally invasive jawline sculpting procedure such as Smartlipo or CoolSculpting Elite:

Smartlipo is an enhanced form of liposuction that utilizes a special cannula with a laser. The laser liquefies the excess fat in the neck and jawline, making it a gentler and quicker procedure than traditional liposuction. The laser energy also helps to lift and tighten the skin in the treatment area. Downtime following the procedure is minimal, and patients can typically resume activities within a few days. Smartlipo results can last indefinitely if you maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

CoolSculpting Elite is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction. Instead of suctioning fat, we freeze fat cells with a special applicator that can be customized to fit the contours under your chin. The cooling treatment reduces this submental fat, allowing your jawline’s natural contours to become more prominent. Because CoolSculptig works without any needles or incisions, there is no downtime following treatment. Results appear gradually over 2 to 4 months.

KYBELLA® for jowls contains synthetic deoxycholic acid (found naturally in the digestive system) that gradually dissolves unwanted fat underneath the chin and jowls. As KYBELLA is injected into the skin, it naturally metabolizes the fat cells to trigger slimming and firming. A series of 2 to 4 appointments spaced about a week apart can help you achieve excellent results in the jawline and chin. There is no downtime following treatment, and results can last indefinitely.  

Skin Tightening & Laser Resurfacing for the Jawline

Skin tightening and laser resurfacing make it possible to achieve a sleeker, more defined profile without surgery, incisions, or scarring:

Profound Skin Tightening is a microneedling technique that uses radiofrequency energy to lift the jawline. The treatment penetrates the skin and stimulates collagen production, tightening lax jowls and firming the skin along the jawline, neck, and other targeted areas. Most patients notice improvement in 6 to 8 weeks, and results can last for many years with periodic touch-ups.

PrecisionTX laser is a minimally invasive contouring technique that combats loose skin around the jowls and chin by melting excess fat deposits and coaxing the skin to coagulate and tighten. It is particularly effective in targeting, sculpting, and tightening the delicate areas of the lower face and neck, so it’s often used to enhance neck liposuction. Results appear gradually over 3 to 6 months and can last many years.

Dermal Fillers for Jaw & Jowls

Dermal fillers can help you create a more well-defined chin and angular jaw without surgery. We offer injectables that add volume and fullness to your facial structure:

Sculptra® Aesthetic for the jawline contains poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates collagen production to produce natural, long-lasting facial volume and fullness. It can specifically improve skin quality and firmness along the jawline. Results appear gradually after a series of 3 treatments spaced several weeks apart.

Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft use naturally occurring hyaluronic acid to give saggy, sunken skin added volume. Once injected into the skin, the gel’s hyaluronic acid breaks down and binds to water molecules, giving the skin a more hydrated, supple appearance. Restylane Lyft adds volume for structural support and lift, making it ideal for firming and contouring the jawline and chin.

Which Jawline Treatment Is Right For Me?

During your consultation, we will thoroughly explore your needs and concerns to help identify your best jawline treatment options. In determining which treatment you may be an ideal candidate for, we will consider the following:

  • The elasticity of your skin around the jawline and neck
  • Your weight and overall health
  • The degree and impact of aging on your face, jawline, and neck
  • The amount of time you can set aside for recovery

Keep in mind that we may recommend a combined neck and jowl treatment plan that combines procedures such as PrecisionTX with dermal fillers for optimal results.
