A weak or receding chin can affect the entire harmony of the face. Fortunately, chin and jawline enhancement without surgery is now possible through injectables like fillers and Botulinum toxin. The former can alter the shape of your chin, while the latter can help slim your jaw.
Both treatments are ideal for men and women who want to have a contoured jawline or a slimmer facial feature without going under the knife. These injectables can help men attain a more chiseled look, and women achieve an oval face shape with a V-shaped chin.

Non-Surgical Chin Enhancement with Fillers
Dermal fillers in Singapore are injectable gels used to “fill” in areas of the face that have lost volume. The most popular types of fillers today are made from hyaluronic acid (Juvederm) and calcium (Radiesse). These substances are both naturally found in the body, making them safe and effective.
Fillers can fill in sunken cheeks, as well as add volume to the chin to give you a slimmer facial feature. They can also lengthen the chin and lift up your lower face to give you a sharper, softer and attractive looking chin. Dermal fillers, furthermore, can widen the midface to improve the facial harmony of those with a square face.
The best thing about these injectables is that they can provide natural results and promote overall facial rejuvenation by removing dark under eye circles, reducing fine lines, plumping up the lips, and even increasing the height of the nose bridge. You can read our previous post to learn more about non-surgical nose lift using fillers.
The effects of fillers are not permanent, but they can offer immediate results that can last for several months. Juvederm can last for about 9 to 12 months and Radiesse for 9 to 15 months. Keep in mind that this will still depend on the number of syringes and type of fillers used.
When considering getting fillers, be sure to work only with an experienced and skilled aesthetic doctor. This is to achieve a natural looking result and avoid complications.
Remember to avoid taking any fish oil or anti-inflammatory medication at least to weeks before your procedure as these medications increase your risk of bruising.
Non-Surgical Jawline Slimming and Contouring with Botox
While Botox is commonly used for treating dynamic wrinkles and fine lines (especially in the forehead and around the eyes), it can also be used for slimming and contouring your jawline. It can help alter the shape of your lower face without any cuts, stitches, or longer recovery period.
To slim and contour the jaw, Botox is injected in the masseter muscles (same muscles used for chewing and clenching the teeth) using very fine needles. This relaxes the muscles, resulting in a slimmer and more defined jawline. Apart from contouring the jaw, it can also treat teeth grinding or bruxism.
The strength of your muscles can dictate the number of Botox units required for jaw slimming. On average, the first-time patient may need a minimum of 60 to notice visible results. This will decrease as you get more Botox treatments often.
The whole procedure can last for a few minutes and you may notice changes in the treated areas within two to six weeks. The results can last for four to six months and can depend on how often you use your jaw muscles.
Just like getting fillers, you also need to find a skilled Botox specialist to ensure safe, effective, and natural-looking results.
Combine Both Treatments
Your aesthetic doctor may suggest combining both treatments to get optimal results or depending on your desired goal. This is why if it is your first time getting any of these injectables, it is best to consult an aesthetic doctor in Singapore to find out what is right for you and what you can expect from the treatment..
