What is Double Chin Contouring & Jawline Enhancement?
Jawline enhancements at 413 Medical Aesthetics are nonsurgical solutions that tighten lax skin or jowls around the lower portion of the face due to collagen and soft tissue loss due to aging.
Genetics and weight changes both contribute to the appearance of the jaw, chin, and lower face. Jaw contouring involves multiple techniques depending on the client’s aesthetic concerns. Loss of bone and subcutaneous tissue due to the aging process will result in the appearance of jowls and loss of jawline definition. In this case, the aesthetic treatment will be directed towards restoring the lower face, and jawline contour to result in a more chiseled younger look.
How We Treat Double Chin/Jawline Contouring
Kybella® (Deoxycholic acid) revolutionary treatment is a prescription medication that is injected into the submental, (beneath the chin) area where it destroys the fat cells. A double chin is so upsetting to patients because it can create the appearance of being overweight or unhealthy, even though this is often not the case. At 413 Medical Aesthetics, we dissolve these concerns as naturally as possible.
Other ways we can achieve results for jawline contouring
At 413 Medical Aesthetics, our team specializes in using dermal fillers to lift, sculpt, and contour the jawline. Aside from jawline enhancement, dermal fillers can also be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and combat volume loss by restoring the skin’s fullness and inner glow. Our jawline filler treatments are Health Canada approved and have long-lasting results.

Hyaluronic acid can be used to both correct moderate wrinkles and fine lines. It is particularly effective in treating the cheeks, mid-face, jowls, temples, jawlines, tear troughs and also other fine lines. Fillers can also be used to enhance the shape, texture, and fullness of the lips.
Dermal filler injection treatments generally take about 30 - 60 minutes, are relatively painless, and don’t require any downtime. The effects of dermal filler injections have been known to last from 9-18 months, depending upon the area being treated.
Some of the most common side effects of HA fillers, which typically last for less than a week, include swelling, redness, mild discomfort, and tenderness at the site of treatment. We also recommend not having filler injections within 14 days of an important event as patients are more likely to experience bruising and swelling with this procedure. In rare circumstances, a blood vessel may have inadvertently been injected which could cause damage to the tissue or even tissue breakdown if left untreated. Our staff is able to address this extremely rare complication should it occur.
