Beauty is universal and timeless, but, as we’ve discussed before, different body parts can start trending. And, jawline’s are hot. Snatched jawlines, defined jawlines, v-line jawlines, strong jawlines. Whatever your preference, there’s a way to get there.

Botox and filler injections for the jaw-line are more popular than ever. So why are some people choosing fillers, while others are opting for Botox? It depends upon your need. If you have an overly round or wide jawline, it may be a large muscle called the masseter that’s to blame.

Botulinum preparations such as Botox or Xeomin are muscle relaxants that can be injected into the masseter muscle to shrink and quiet it down. This can narrow your jaw and also help with certain dental problems such as TMJ or teeth clenching.

For others who need greater definition, the answer may be fillers to add volume to the angle of the jaw, pulling the skin further back, almost like a mini-facelift. Adding droplets of filler along the jawline helps contour the skin, giving you a more defined, “snatched”, jawline.

For others the answer could be adding filler to the chin pulling the skin forward and decreasing the submental fullness (that nasty double chin) and creating a more youthful and attractive appearance.
The choices are many, and it all starts with a conversation with your doctor to get you the best results for your face.
