Non-surgical jawline contouring in Greenwich provides patients with a way to refine and contour their jawline without a period of frustrating recovery/downtime. Over time, our jawline is negatively affected by signs of the aging process, such as hollowness and an overly square look.
To tackle these problems and regain a more youthful profile, many people choose to undergo a non-surgical jawline contouring procedure. To shape the jawline, we provide injectable dermal filler and neuromodulator treatments.
Dermal Fillers (Juvederm and Restylane)
Dermal fillers are smooth gel-like substances that are used in many cosmetic procedures. They restore volume to the skin, filling in hollow regions to improve contours. These injectable products can sculpt and reshape a patient’s jawline by adding volume to hollow areas.
We offer Juvederm and Restylane, two popular FDA-approved hyaluronic-acid-based fillers, for non-surgical jawline contouring. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a synthetic version of a natural substance that bonds with water molecules in the skin tissues to create new volume.
Patients will notice results immediately after their injectable filler treatment. Results can be seen for around six to twelve months, and after this, patients can return for maintenance treatments.
Neuromodulators (Botox and Dysport)
Botox and Dysport are popular injectable neuromodulators that can be used for jawline contouring through reduction of the masseter muscle. This muscle is located in the jaw area and aids in the chewing process. When it is overused, this can result in growth and an overly square jaw.
During Botox or Dysport jaw reduction, the chosen product is injected into the masseter muscle. This blocks nerve signals to the muscle, decreasing activity. As a result, the muscle shrinks, slimming down the jawline and face for a more defined look.

The Treatment Session
Before the date of your non-surgical jawline contouring treatment session, avoid taking any NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) or other blood thinners. These can worsen post-treatment bruising.
Injection of products for non-surgical jawline contouring is a minimally invasive process. At the start of the session, the area to be treated may be numbed with a local or topical anesthetic. This ensures no pain or discomfort for the duration of the treatment. The injection sites are then marked as a guide. Finally, the chosen product is precisely injected into the target areas.
Non-surgical contouring requires virtually no downtime for recovery. Patients can return to their everyday schedule, and because of this, many patients get these procedures done during their lunch breaks. A small degree of swelling, bruising, or redness may be present but will fade shortly.
How Much Does Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring Cost?
The cost of this procedure will depend on whether you choose fillers or neuromodulators. The exact filler or neuromodulator chosen will also affect the price, as will the number of injections required and the number of treatment sessions needed.
