What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? 

Nonsurgical Options to Help Build a Strong Jaw Line Non-surgically

What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? A strong jaw line and chin have a huge impact on your facial appearance by making you appear more fit and young. A receding jaw line or a recessed chin tends to weaken the symmetry of your face and this may change the youthfulness and attractiveness of your appearance.  

Loose skin and jowls often persist despite the best efforts at exercise and diet control. If you find this happening to you, or if you are one of those persons who have always had a weak jaw line, don’t worry! Several non-surgical med spa options are now available to help you improve the attractiveness of your chin and jaw line. 

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides chin and jawline enhancement treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations. 

Nonsurgical options 

Nonsurgical options work best if you have: 

  • fairly well-defined chin with moderate amount of surrounding loose skin. 
  • Mild or moderate fat around the chin obscuring the jaw line. 

These options include dermal fillers, neurotoxin treatment, fat melting injectables, and surgical threads. 

Dermal fillers 

Dermal fillers are best for those who have a mildly weak jaw line with no hardness visible at the bony edge. Injecting the fillers into the jaw line enhances the edges of the mandible and the bony angle, improving its hardness.  

The quantity of dermal filler required differs based on the anatomy of your jaw line, and the degree of definition you want to attain. Generally, about 1-4 syringes suffice and results are quick to show, with the effects lasting for a year to 18 months. 

Neurotoxin to the masseter muscles 

The bulge you feel at the jaw ends when you clench your teeth are the masseter muscles. Placing Botulinum toxin (Dysport, Botox, or Xeomin) med spa injections directly into these muscles helps to thin them.  

This injection of the neurotoxin pulls your face into a V-like shape and renders your face slimmer in appearance. Visible results generally require about 84-168 units of Dysport or 30-60 units of Botox/Xeomin per side and results last for around 4 months.  

Kybella for melting chin and neck fat 

Mild amounts of excess fat in the chin and neck region respond well to a fat melting agent such as Kybella that is made of deoxycholic acid. The on-label use is restricted to the double chin area; injections to the edges and back portions of the jaw line are considered off-label use.  

The quantity of Kybella to be injected depends on the amount of fat in your jaw region. On an average, 1-6 vials may be necessary. This process melts the fat physically, leading to permanent results, provided you keep your overall weight in check.  

Surgical threads for loose skin 

Placing surgical threads around the jowls helps with tightening skin that is slightly loose. Depending on the amount of loose skin and the width of your jowls, about 4-8 threads may be required. Surgical threads usually retain their tightening effect for 6-12 months. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for chin and jawline augmentation.
