Jawline Filler & Contour at Cosmetica Med Spa
Jawline Filler & Contour in Boca Raton, Florida
A person’s jawline, as well as several other areas of the face, can be reshaped through the non-surgical use of what is called filler.
Discussed more in a later section, filler is a substance that can be injected into the face to alter its shape by adding volume in targeted areas. Often, but not exclusively, made of what is called hyaluronic acid, filler is well tested and safe, posing very little risk to a patient as long as it is injected by a trained medical professional at a reputable facility.

Types of Jawline Filler Used at Cosmetica Med Spa
Several different types of filler are available, including these:
Juvéderm Voluma injectable gel is an effective filler that has quickly become a popular standard for these types of procedures. It is a hyaluronic acid gel filler. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the body, and it works as a quality, safe filler.
Bellafill is currently the only dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth long term. It is a gel offering that can be used for a variety of types of filler treatments. This filler is made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres suspended in collagen gel, which helps it achieve some of its more unique properties.
Captique is a dermal filler that can enhance chin and cheek volume. With hyaluronic acid as its main component, Captique is similar to VOLUMA.
Jawline Filler & Contour Treatment Process at Cosmetica Med Spa
The filler and contour treatment isn’t particularly complicated from the patient’s perspective. You will talk with an expert about the results you hope to achieve and what is possible from this type of treatment.
You will also have to give a medical history, so our experts can make sure you’re a good candidate for this procedure. Most people are, but certain medical conditions can affect how safe the procedure is for an individual.
During the procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the areas where you’re going to get filler injected. This numbs the site and reduces the amount of pain the injections cause, often making the actual filler injections painless. Once the anesthetic has been applied, filler will be carefully injected into key sites of your face to achieve the results discussed beforehand.
After Your Jawline Filler & Contour Treatment
Recovery is usually fairly quick, with most people only experiencing some tenderness and swelling for a few days after the procedure. Some people don’t even experience those effects.

Benefits of Getting Jawline Filler & Contour
The benefits of this type of procedure are that it can allow many people to achieve a jawline they are happy with without the need for more expensive, riskier surgery.
The results are not permanent, but they are still long-lasting. This means you don’t have to commit to permanently reshaping your face, as you generally will with surgery.
Jawline filler treatments, as well as similar types of treatments, can help to smooth out bumps and other types of facial asymmetry that you may be unhappy with. The procedure can also add volume and definition to the jaw, helping to fill out your jawline if you feel your jaw isn’t well defined.
These treatments are fairly straightforward and minimally invasive. Most people can get them without needing to do much in the way of preparation. They won’t have to deal with being unable to work or meet other obligations for any significant length of time after their procedure.
How Long Do Chin Filler Injections Last?
One study found this type of procedure’s results can last from anywhere between 9 and 24 months. A typical “minimum” expectation for how long one’s full results will last is usually placed at a more conservative 6 months, but many people’s results will last longer. Most people will still see some benefits from their procedure for significantly longer than when they stop seeing the full results.
Most filler procedures are also reversible, thanks to the properties of the filler used. If you’re unhappy with the result or want to quickly revert back to your original jawline for any reason, an additional procedure can be performed where an injection is given that essentially counteracts the filler used.
Frequently Asked Questions
The following are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this type of treatment:
What is jawline filler?
Jawline filler is a substance used to reshape a person’s jawline through non-surgical injection treatments. It is typically made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body.
Are jawline fillers safe?
There are risks associated with any procedure involving needles, with the biggest concern being the risk that a needle is injected into the wrong area, especially into a vein. This can cause a variety of complications, but it becomes less likely when qualified and trained professionals are performing your procedure.
The professionals who perform these injections are aware of the risks of these procedures and learn how to do them correctly. At Cosmetica, our experts are at the top of their field.
Filler procedures aren’t safe for everyone. It’s important to be honest when talking about your medical history with your treatment professionals. People with certain allergies, drug sensitivities, and some other conditions may not be able to get these treatments, or they may need their treatment modified in order for it to be safe.
How much do jawline filler injections cost in Boca Raton, FL?
The typical cost of filler injections can vary greatly, depending on region, practitioner expertise, and the product used. Generally, the jawline requires a good amount of filler.
Be wary of any specials that seem too good to be true. Pricing that seems unreasonably inexpensive may be bait-and-switch advertising. The filler may be diluted, or the practitioners may not have much experience.
How painful is getting jawline fillers?
Typically, filler procedures don’t cause much pain, and this is also true for jawline fillers. While the actual treatments do involve needles, topical anesthetic is used to significantly reduce the potential for pain.
Additionally, the needles used are fairly small and precise. Some tenderness and swelling for a few days after the procedure is normal, but this isn’t usually a serious source of pain, even if it causes some mild discomfort.
