As one of the top medical spas in the Sacramento area, Destination Aesthetics™ can help you sculpt a sharper, more defined jawline with BOTOX® Cosmetic and chin fillers in El Dorado Hills, Elk Grove, Folsom, Roseville, and Sacramento, CA. These face-contouring injections work together to enhance the chin and slim and define the jaw, creating that coveted v-line facial shape. Whether you’re looking to create a more proportional chin with dermal fillers or slim a wide jaw with BOTOX®, our skilled and experienced #DAGs can make it happen—all with little to downtime and no surgery.
The chin and jawline play huge roles in your facial shape. They frame your features, create definition between your face and neck, and balance your facial symmetry. Sharpening your jawline, slimming your lower face, and bringing your chin into proportion all have transformative effects on the way you look, and they’re all possible with injectable treatments at Destination Aesthetics™.
What Is Chin Augmentation With Dermal Fillers?
Many people feel self-conscious if they feel their chin is too small, too prominent, or is starting to recede with age. With nonsurgical chin augmentation, we strategically add filler to disguise these features so you can look and feel like your best self. Chin fillers are a favorite for elongating and sharpening the shape of the lower face.
Who Is a Candidate for Chin Filler?
Chin filler provides natural-looking results that are in line with your facial proportions. It’s a fantastic option for just about anyone looking to:
Disguise jowls that become prominent with age
Improve the chin’s definition so it appears more prominent and in balance with the face
Blend an overly prominent chin in with the rest of the face
Reduce the appearance of shadows on the chin
Fill sunken areas, depressions, or wrinkles on the chin
One of the best features of chin filler is that it is completely nonsurgical, meaning it doesn’t require any incisions. This keeps downtime and discomfort to a minimum.
Which Fillers Do You Use for Chin Augmentation?
We choose from the following fillers for chin augmentation depending on your anatomy and goals:
One of our helpful #DAGs will walk you through their recommendations during your personal consultation.
What to Expect During a Chin Augmentation With Fillers
Your experience starts with a consultation, which helps us learn about your cosmetic goals and assess your chin’s current shape. After designing a customized treatment plan for you, we’ll perform your treatment right in our office. Chin filler appointments typically only take about 30 minutes. We may use a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout. Once we’re done, you’ll be free to return to your usual routine, with only some minor swelling and possible bruising that typically subside in a couple of days.
How Long Do Chin Filler Results Last?
Each filler used has different longevity. While many are long-lasting, with some remaining in the chin for a year or more, the injections are not permanent and will require touch-ups in order to maintain their aesthetic appeal. The compromise is that when the fillers wear off, you can adjust your maintenance injections to any new aesthetic goals you may have.
If you decide chin augmentation is no longer for you, we can reverse any hyaluronic acid fillers with the use of hyaluronidase, which is an enzyme that will dissolve the filler within a day or 2.

A BOTOX® jaw reduction involves the use of BOTOX® to relax the masseter muscle and create a slimmer facial shape.
The masseter muscle surrounds and protects the jawbone, and it’s used primarily for speaking and chewing. Like any muscle, when exercised frequently, it becomes stronger and more prominent. If you engage in activities that enlist the masseter muscle—gum chewing, teeth grinding, jaw clenching—it may get bigger over time.
BOTOX® consists of botulinum toxin type A, which we inject directly into the muscle through a fine needle, effectively relaxing the muscle and allowing it to become smaller.
Who Is a Candidate for Jaw Slimming With BOTOX®?
If you frequently chew gum or ice, you may eventually notice your jaw becoming wider. Another common culprit is stress-related behavior such as bruxism (teeth grinding) or jaw clenching. The masseter muscle’s growth is a slow process—it can take years for any effects to show—but when it becomes noticeable, the size of the muscle can cause a significant change in your facial shape.
A BOTOX® jaw reduction can:
Change the shape of the face without invasive techniques
Create a more oval or v-line jawline as opposed to a square contour
Add symmetry to the face and improve facial proportions
Target the specific muscle responsible for jaw enlargement
Like chin fillers, it also provides a solution that doesn’t interrupt your daily routine or require the downtime and stress of surgery.
What to Expect During a BOTOX® Jaw Reduction
We’ll start with a consultation to discuss your specific facial contours and determine the number of units we’ll need to create the best results. From there, one of our specially trained #DAGs will perform a quick series of injections that usually only takes 15 to 20 minutes. Your results will develop over the course of 1 or 2 weeks as the BOTOX® takes effect. These results will become more visible as your muscle shrinks over time.
How Long Do BOTOX® Jaw Slimming Results Last?
A BOTOX® jaw reduction lasts about 3 months. However, many people who keep up with regular treatments find their results last a bit longer.
