Though a chiseled jaw may be most commonly thought of as a feature of masculinity, a defined chin and jawline can actually be an attractive characteristic for both men and women. Physical and environmental factors such as genetics, aging, and weight fluctuations can be the cause of less-than-desirable lower facial features, including:
A weak jawline
Excess fat under the chin
Loose skin below the chin
Lines and wrinkles

What treatments are included in noninvasive jawline contouring?

Some of the most common treatments included in noninvasive facial contouring of the chin and jawline are:
- Injectable fillers: These dermal fillers, including the popular Juvéderm and Restylane, can improve the jawline, chin, and lower face by addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and lost facial volume.
- Injectable wrinkle relaxers: Injectable neurotoxins, such as BOTOX, can be used to improve the jawline contour temporarily.
- Injectable fat reduction: The FDA-approved injectable Kybella is a highly effect agent for reducing fat under the chin, resulting in a more appealing jawline and neck contour.
- PDO thread lifting: This revolutionary and innovative treatment uses small, dissolvable, suture-like material under the skin to slim and define the jaw area.
- Energy-based therapy: Candela elos Plus is another exciting and unique treatment that uses radiofrequency and energy to gently firm skin and reduce fat, lines, wrinkles, and other flaws.
