If you’re like us, there’s probably one thing you’ve been doing a lot more lately: video chats! These days, we’ve got Zoom meetings at work, Hangouts with friends, video dating, virtual school, church, holiday parties, concerts, happy hours, baby showers, seminars, and anything else you can think of.
During this increased time in front of a camera, we bet you’re checking yourself out and studying your face every day. How do you feel about your appearance? Do you notice you constantly have to crane your neck, suck in your cheeks, mess with the lighting, apply makeup, or sit at a certain angle to hide some features you’re unhappy with?
If you’re ready to stop worrying about your facial features, you’re in good company! Many men and women in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area come to Southlake Plastic Surgery & Medspa seeking non-surgical options to sculpt and contour their face and neck. With treatments like jawline and chin fillers, we can rejuvenate your appearance and help you look your best—on and off screen!
Dermal fillers are purified preparations of hyaluronic acid (HA) that we inject into the face and other areas to plump and lift the skin to smooth wrinkles and create a more youthful facial contour.
HA is a substance naturally found in your skin. Together with collagen (AKA “the beauty protein”), HA acts as your skin’s natural volumizer, cushioning the cells and playing an essential role in moisture retention.
When injected by a skilled expert and in moderation, fillers produce gorgeous, natural-looking results.
Besides jawline and chin fillers (which we’ll discuss later), we use fillers to:

Thanks to the increased need for video calls day-to-day, many people have noticed their chin and the area under their chin could use some improvement.
Besides facial symmetry, the most attractive faces tend to have wide jawlines and strong chins (for men) or sharp jawlines and defined, proportional chins (for women).
If you don’t want a jawline enhancement surgery, fillers are an amazing non-surgical option to achieve similar results. The quick, minimally invasive injection process gently contours the area around the chin and the angles of the jaw with HA gel filler.
Our patients leave our office with an improved jawline that will continue to improve over the next two weeks as the filler integrates into the soft tissue and swelling subsides. Results can last 9 to 18 months before they require another treatment to maintain the effects.
A small volume of chin filler can make an enormous improvement in your overall appearance. After your consultation with a Southlake Plastic Surgery & Medspa injection specialist, you will receive a customized plan to give you the strong chin and balanced features you’ve always wanted.
Using Sculptra® or chin fillers from the JUVÉDERM® and Galderma families, we can effectively perform a non-surgical chin augmentation. Besides a more attractive chin and improved facial proportions, our patients will appreciate a more defined jawline and improved neck contour for 9 to 18 months.
A note on Sculptra…
Sculptra is a unique collagen stimulator we can use to provide longer-lasting jawline and chin filler results Unlike Juvéderm and Galderma HA fillers, Sculptra is made of Poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible substance that provides immediate structure while also stimulating collagen production in the area, creating results that can last for several years.
It’s rare that a patient comes to our medspa to receive just one treatment. Just like getting into shape, cross-training is going to do you a lot better than just one activity. It’s the same for your skin. Just doing fillers is fine, but trying a few other things can be better.
Our experts perfectly pair the treatments that will work best for your lifestyle, budget, and goals. Some of our suggested treatments that will have you looking your best on Zoom and IRL include:
The combination of Botox (or Dysport®) and fillers is what we in the industry consider a one-two punch for addressing the signs of aging and looseness on the skin. Rather than plumping the skin with HA, Botox uses the purified form of a common neurotoxin to relax facial muscles we choose.
We can use Botox to:
SkinTyte™ by Sciton is an incredible, non-invasive skin firming technique. SkinTyte works by delivering a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses of infrared light over the selected treatment area. This light passes through the uppermost layer of the skin and penetrates deep into the dermis.
Once the light has entered the dermis, the treatment works in two phases: it first heats the collagen in the upper, middle, and deep dermis, and then causes collagen bonds to contract and soft tissue to coagulate. Over time, this leads to collagen remodeling and the toning and tightening of the skin.
Using our SkinTyte device, we can soften wrinkles, add healthy volume, tighten skin, and stimulate collagen production to treat your most pressing facial concerns.
Though you may associate CoolSculpting with getting rid of love handles, treating bra fat, or eliminating excess belly fat, you’ll be pleased to hear that CoolSculpting can treat a double chin, too!
Combined with chin or jawline fillers, treating the area under your chin with CoolSculpting provides a more dramatic and long-lasting result.
Using advanced cryolipolysis technology, we apply the CoolSculpting chin device and let it go to work freezing the excess fat in the area. The frozen fat cells naturally die and your body eliminates them as waste, resulting in permanent fat reduction!
There is no anesthesia required. Some patients report temporary hypersensitivity in the area of fat removal, but otherwise there is no social or physical downtime after CoolSculpting.
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment to conquer excess submental fat (AKA a double chin). When paired with jawline or chin fillers, it can help eliminate the fat that’s obstructing sharp contours.
Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid. This substance is proven to safely dissolve excess pockets of fat in the area under the chin, resulting in a tighter, sculpted, and more youthful profile appearance.
There is social downtime of about 7 to 10 days to allow swelling, tenderness, and redness to subside.
