He is proud to offer customized jawline and chin enhancement procedures using dermal fillers to sculpt the lower face in New York City, NY.

What To Expect During Jawline & Chin Enhancement

The Non-Surgical Jawline & Chin Enhancement Procedure

Jawline and chin enhancement procedures take place at Dr. Cangello’s NYC office. This non-surgical cosmetic treatment involves injecting hyaluronic acid-based (HA) fillers into specific areas of the jawline and chin to add volume and definition.

Dr. Cangello will first assess your facial anatomy to determine the best injection points for your specific needs. Then, he will apply a topical numbing cream to the area to reduce any discomfort during the procedure.

Once the area is numb, filler injections are placed into the targeted areas. Dr. Cangello will use small amounts of filler at each injection point to ensure the most natural-looking results.2 The exact amount and placement of the filler will depend on your desired results and your unique facial structure.

Recovery After Jawline & Chin Enhancement With Dermal Fillers

After the treatment, some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site.3 These side effects are normal and should subside within a few days.
To minimize swelling and bruising, Dr. Cangello advises patients to avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol consumption, and exposure to sunlight or heat for 24-48 hours after the procedure. Applying ice packs to the treated area can also help reduce swelling and discomfort.

It is also important to avoid touching or massaging the treated area for the first 24-48 hours after the procedure to allow the filler to settle properly. Patients should follow all post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Cangello and attend scheduled follow-up appointments to ensure the best possible results.

Overall, recovery after non-surgical jawline and chin enhancement with dermal fillers is generally quick and uncomplicated, with most patients able to resume their regular activities immediately after treatment.

FAQs About Jawline & Chin Enhancement

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. For non-surgical jawline and chin contouring, HA fillers work by adding volume to the jawline and chin area, which can create a more defined and balanced appearance.

There are a variety of HA fillers that can be used for non-surgical jawline and chin contouring including Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, and Restylane®. Dr. Cangello often recommends fillers that are specifically designed for contouring facial features, such as Restylane® Lyft and Juvéderm® Volux.

The reason Restylane® Lyft and Juvéderm® Volux are commonly used for jawline and chin contouring is that these specialized formulas have a high level of viscosity, which means they are thicker and more robust than other dermal fillers. This allows for more structural support to create defined and natural-looking facial contours.

Additionally, these specially formulated fillers are designed to last longer than other dermal fillers, typically providing results that can last up to 12 months—making them an ideal option for individuals who want long-lasting results without having to undergo surgery.4

The results of the treatment typically last between 6-18 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual patient’s metabolism.5

Most patients report only mild discomfort during this non-surgical procedure, which can be minimized with the use of a topical anesthetic. Dr. Cangello typically uses a cannula as opposed to a needle for his injections. The use of a cannula contributes to patient comfort because only one needle puncture is made in order to allow entry of the cannula under the skin surface, whereas several needle sticks are necessary when injections are performed with needles.

After the procedure, some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site, but these side effects are temporary and should subside within a few days.

The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes.

As with any medical procedure, there are some potential risks and side effects associated with dermal filler treatment. These include, but are not limited to, swelling, bruising, redness, and infection. However, these side effects are generally mild and temporary, and serious complications are rare.

Ideal candidates are in good health, have realistic expectations, and are looking for a non-surgical option to address concerns related to the appearance of their jawline or chin, such as a weak chin or a poorly defined facial profile.

Yes, the effects of dermal fillers can be reversed using a special enzyme called hyaluronidase, which dissolves the filler and restores the natural contours of the face.

Non-surgical chin augmentation with injectable fillers may help address the appearance of jowls, however, it depends on the severity of the case. In instances where a patient has excessive jowling or a double chin, cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, a chin implant, or even a neck lift procedure may be appropriate to achieve the defined jawline desired.

Yes, many patients opt to include other non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures such as skin tightening laser treatments, Botox®, or non-surgical rhinoplasty in their treatment plan.
