Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring


Conveniently located to serve Austin

With non-surgical jawline contouring, Austin patients can achieve a more defined jawline and a more youthful appearance. Jawline-contouring procedures address issues affecting the look of the jawline, such as sagging skin, a double chin, and an overly square jaw.

At Austin Plastic Surgery Institute, we provide a number of non-surgical jawline contouring methods. These include Kybella, dermal filler injections, Botox/Dysport injections, and Secret RF microneedling.

The Initial Consultation

When you meet with your nurse injectors or physician, they will first ask you about your goals for the procedure. They will then perform an examination of your jawline and review your complete medical history, including allergies, current medications, and past procedures.

Once your physician has a thorough understanding of your aesthetic goals and your current state of health, they will go over your treatment options. They will answer any questions you may have. After this, they will recommend a treatment for your non-surgical jawline contouring. Finally, a date will be set for the chosen procedure.

Based on patient information from the consult, the physician will refer to doctors if aesthetic goals cannot be achieved with non-surgical procedures.

On the other side of this, surgeons will often refer patients to non-surgical skincare options if patient is not a good candidate for surgery, or if they can achieve desired result with non-surgical procedures.


This injectable product is used to eliminate a double chin, resulting in a slimmer and more defined jawline. It is composed of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally found in the body. Deoxycholic acid breaks down dietary fats.

During a session, anesthesia is first administered, and then several Kybella injections are made in the submental region (the area below the chin). The product destroys excess fat cells, which are then gradually processed by the body, revealing natural results.


Dermal fillers are injectable products administered to restore volume to depressed regions of the jawline. Fillers create instant volume, which lasts for six months or longer depending on the chosen filler. A number of fillers are available, including Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse.

Fillers are administered through precise injections. Typically, treatment sessions are quick and convenient, allowing patients to return to their everyday schedule immediately. No recovery time or downtime is needed.


Botox and Dysport are injectable neuromodulators. Though they are primarily known for their ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines, they can also be used to soften a square jawline. This process is known as masseter reduction.

The masseter muscle is a large muscle in the jaw region and is used for chewing. With overuse, it can become larger than normal. Botox and Dysport can relax this muscle by temporarily blocking nerve signals to it, allowing it to shrink again.

Botox or Dysport jaw reduction is quick and simple. Injections are delivered into the muscle, and then patients can go right back to their day. The results of these injections can last for three to four months, and maintenance sessions are available.

Secret RF Microneedling

Secret RF is a microneedling treatment used to tighten sagging skin on the jawline for a sculpted and defined look. The numerous small microneedles are passed over the skin of the area, safely penetrating into the skin tissues at various depths, and radiofrequency (RF) energy is administered to the tissues. Both of these treatment modalities encourage the skin tissues to produce new collagen and elastin, leading to tighter skin.

A Secret RF session only takes 20 minutes, and three to four treatment sessions are typically required. Best results can be seen in around three months as new collagen and elastin continue to appear.

How Much Does Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring Cost?

The cost of your jaw contouring will depend on the exact procedure chosen, along with the details of your specific case. Generally, price depends on the number of treatment sessions needed and/or the number of injections given (when injectables are used).

I can not explain how happy I am with the results of my breast augmentation. I went in expecting them to look good but had no idea the amount of confidence it would give me!
