The contours of our jaw and tightness of the skin in this area significantly contribute to our appearance. A firm, shapely jaw often invokes a sense of elegance and dignity, while a weak chin and sagging jowls are associated with aging.
People who feel that a more pronounced jaw or a sleeker jawline would improve their looks can try an excellent non-surgical treatment – dermal fillers. The popular injectables address various issues and provide many cosmetic benefits, including jaw augmentation and sculpting.
This article provides a list of the best fillers for jawline contouring, explains how each jawline filler works, and what results to expect.
6 Best Fillers for the Jawline
The best fillers for the jawline are designed to provide volume, definition, and shape to this facial area. These fillers have a thicker consistency than those injected into softer tissues (e.g., lip fillers).
Below you will find a list of fillers medical providers commonly use to enhance and define the jaw.
Note: Learn about other popular cosmetic treatments for jawline contouring.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the gold standard for jaw contouring. It is one of the safest fillers because it is made from hyaluronic acid - a natural, biodegradable compound that our body easily recognizes and accepts. Voluma is FDA-approved for cheek and chin augmentation, and skin professionals use it to sculpt the jaw.
At Vibrant Skin Bar, one syringe of Juvéderm Voluma costs $850. Most patients require 2-4 syringes, and the results last up to 18 months.
Juvéderm Volux XC
Juvéderm Volux XC is a new addition to the Juvéderm family of filler products. It is the first and only FDA-approved filler for correcting moderate to severe loss of jawline definition. It provides more structure and has a higher lifting capacity than Voluma.
Like other Juvéderm fillers, Volux is made from hyaluronic acid, which can be dissolved if the patient is not satisfied.
The results of Juvéderm Volux XC last up to 12 months.

Restylane Lyft is the most common filler type for jawline contouring, along with Juvéderm Voluma. It is made from hyaluronic acid and FDA-approved to improve midface contours. It is the firmest among Restylane types and has a high lifting capacity, so medical providers use it to lift sagging jowls and augment the chin to extend the jawline.
At Vibrant Skin Bar, one syringe of Restylane Lyft costs $749. On average, patients need 2-4 syringes for jawline contouring. The results last up to two years.
Note: Wondering whether to use Restylane L or Restylane Lyft? This article explains the differences and helps you choose.
Restylane Defyne is slightly softer than Lyft and often used in patients with thinner skin and softer tissue. Its texture is flexible and designed to lift sagging jowls and augment the chin, providing the right amount of support for the jawline.
At Vibrant Skin Bar, one syringe of Restylane Defyne costs $649. Patients usually need 2-4 syringes, and the results last up to one year.
Sculptra is a dermal filler made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). The injected PLLA provides a scaffolding for the jaw and stimulates the body to produce more collagen. After several months, the body absorbs the PLLA and collagen takes its place, volumizing and supporting the injected area.
Unlike Restylane and Juvéderm, Sculptra provides delayed results but often lasts longer than other fillers.
At Vibrant Skin Bar, one vial of Sculptra costs $900. Patients usually need 1-2 vials per session and three sessions spaced one month apart. The results last for two years.
Radiesse is a dermal filler made from synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral found in bones and teeth. The calcium hydroxylapatite particles act similarly to PLLA in Sculptra – they provide a support structure to the facial area that has lost volume and stimulate the production of new collagen.
Radiesse effectively smooths pre-jowl folds and chin wrinkles and augments the area.
At Vibrant Skin Bar, one syringe of Radiesse costs $749. Patients usually need 1-2 syringes, depending on the severity of their cosmetic issue. The results last about one year.
Which One Should You Choose?
The choice of a dermal filler ultimately comes down to your chosen medical provider, who will recommend a filler based on multiple factors: the severity of your skin concern, the desired look, your skin’s thickness, and your budget.
All fillers on our list have their advantages.
The added benefit of using Juvéderm and Restylane products is that the hyaluronic acid they are made from can be dissolved.
Sculptra and Radiesse provide more natural-looking results because they increase collagen, the protein that naturally supports and volumizes skin.
Your medical provider will consider all these factors to choose the best filler for your jawline.
Jawline fillers are increasingly popular because even a subtle change in the shape of your jaw can dramatically improve and rejuvenate your appearance. Fillers are safe, quickly administered, and long-lasting.
